Everything was great, food was delicious, server was really patient and kind, the only thing was, since I work in the restaurant business, I found it a little odd that our server called out my friend for not leaving 20 percent as a tip, some people don’t always have the money to be able to spare, it’s understandable since that is his living, but to mention something about a tip to the customer is a little uncalled for.

This was our first time dining at Mill Creek Tavern. Our son had given us a gift card. The entire experience was excellent. The menu had many different options from steaks to seafood to pasta. The noise level was low. Lighting was perfect. Parking lot was small, but there was plenty of on-street parking. Would definitely come here again.

Went for my daughter’s birthday. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. We were looking for a local casual fun place and they didn’t disappoint. They had a table last minute and went over and above in every way from helping with difficult parking to touching up my margarita with a drop of simple syrup. My burger was amazing and everyone loved their meal. Thank you so much!

We are from Queens and our friends that we were meeting for dinner we met for are from Dix Hills. We tried to pick someplace between us and go somewhere different.

I found this place on line and made an open table reservation for the 4 of us for 5pm on Saturday.

When we arrived it was pretty empty as they open at 4:30. We all ordered drinks, appetizers, meals, coffee, tea and cappuccino and 2 deserts.

Everything was really good and our waitress Jean was very attentive, accommodating to our needs and done all with a smile.

We had the baked clams, Kung Pao cauliflower (surprisingly delicious!) and fried calamari as the appetizers. All were excellent.

2 of us had the lemon sole which came with shrimp, mussels, tomatoes, spinach on a bed of angel hair pasta, yummo! One person had the chicken with Granny Smith apples and sweet potato in a Riesling sauce, and one person had sesame encrusted tuna, both were delicious.

For desert we had a key lime pie and a hot brownie with ice cream and mini M&Ms.

We all said we’d definitely go back there again.

And by the time we left the place was packed.

Food was very good. Nice selection. Service was fast but too fast. Runner put all the entres and salads on our table, all at once, stacking things up while we were still eating the appetizer. No one cleared the table. Trying to be understanding because I know there's labor shortages but these are easy fixes. But if you're not fussy about the experience the food was very good.

we had to continue to ask for things that should have been at the table with our meal.
