Food was delicious, but took a long time for it to come out. Had some lobster shells in the special lobster sliders. There was a lot of sauce on the fish tacos. Had to wipe some off but it still tasted good. Enjoy !! Always a good time !

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.

I made a reservation on OpenTable for my husband & I and arrived on time. The couple in front of us did not have a reservation but were seemingly given what I assume should have been our booth. The hostess then went to seat us right next to the hostess station where everyone walks in and was rude & dismissive when I asked if they had other tables available, as we just heard her give a booth to a couple with no reservation. She rudely told us the other booths were for people with reservations (as we clearly had), then sat us at another tiny table in the middle of the hallway to the other room. Then came the waiting. We waited and waited and waited and waited some more. The other couple that had been seated only a minute before us & right across from us received water, bread, and had their order taken. We sat for 15 minutes and no one even stopped by our table to bring us water let alone take our order. On top of that, the hostess never mentioned that the AC was not working. It was 95° outside and 81° inside. We finally got up to leave as we had been sitting awkwardly in the middle of the room without even a glance from any wait staff and we were parched as you can imagine being in a steaming hot room packed with other patrons with no AC. Two of the waiters stared at us as we got up to leave but didn’t bother to approach us to ask why.
It was really disappointing because we were both excited to try the food here but between the sweltering heat and the lack of service, it was not happening. All in all, I would have left negative stars for this horrific experience if I could have.

First time at this restaurant. We have been frequenting Mims in Roslyn for a very long time so we decided to try this “sister establishment”. Similar menu to Mims but with some added items. Food was excellent, service was superb. Hopefully, they will offer outdoor seating in the future as that is the only “drawback”.
