Nice restaurant, great food, we were lost by the staff after being seated for a few minutes. Terrific food once served. The manager was apologetic without prompting. I would recommend to a friend.

Dining out on a Friday, especially during restaurant week can be challenging but this was a very enjoyable dining experience.
Great food, service was very accommodating & ample portions. Also good choices on the menu.
Definitely going back, even w/out restaurant week.

overall very good - our hostess was odd she asked us if we'd like to wait for a booth. We waited at the bar, when our friends arrived we told her we were ready and we had to wait 15 minutes longer because she claimed she had told us the table was ready 15 minutes ago with a tone. She was a turn off

The food was excellent, the service was outstanding and the staff were very friendly. The owner came over to our table and introduced himself and asked us how everything was. This is probably a hidden gem in the Bayville and surrounding area. Very “down to earth” and unpretentious. I travel a lot and eat in many many restaurants all over the country and the world. I highly recommend The Mill Creek Tavern.

My mom and I frequent Mill Creek on Sundays and enjoy their 3 course price fix menu which is a bargain at $27.99. My mom gets their muscles every time, she says they are the best she has ever had in her life, she wishes she could just drink the broth, but we both enjoy dunking our bread in it. I love their apricot salmon, it is delicious!

The atmosphere out did the food. Nothing interesting or inspiring on the menu. Had fish tacos which were quite bland and uninteresting. With three others. No one’s meal was well prepared. All entrees boring an relativity flavorless.

I hadn't been there for a while, and know I remember why! There's a lot of noise from the bar area, and the food is so so. Linguine with white clams had chopped clams that were so dry. I never experienced that texture is a clam before, and the pasta way overcooked. Strange that there was a lot of garlic in the dish, but absolutely no flavor. Oh well. The service was A+, so there is something to be said for that!

It has been some time since I updated my review on this terrific location and my family's dinner last Friday gave me the perfect excuse! As usual, we were delighted! All the little details were there.......reservation respected and a lovely table held for us: immediate and courteous attention; food brought quickly and every bit as good as we had hoped; attentive service and perfect ambience (for us........enough "buzz" to provide lovely "energy", but quiet enough for us to talk, laugh and enjoy family time! ). The Mill Creek Tavern continues to be one of Long Island's true "gems"! Great food, great environment at reasonable prices. Indeed, the whole package is a bargain!

We have been here a few time before this last visit and have never had a problem. The food is quite good and basically the same menu as their sister and better restaurant "Mims" in Roslyn. Our experience tonight was not that good. We had a 7:15 reservation made on OpenTable with a request for a booth. We arrived on time and checked in with the hostess who told us that it would be just a few minutes for a booth and invited to go to the bar for just a little bit. We ordered a couple of drinks and 15 minutes later I checked back and was told that they were very busy tonight and it would just be a bit longer. At 8pm when we were still not seated I went back to the dinning room and saw the hostess who told me that they were setting up a booth right now. I looked over and saw someone who came in after we did talking to the manager setting up the booth. The hostess then tells us sorry I am going to have to seat you in the back dinning room at a regular table. I told her that was unacceptable and went right to the manager who told me he did not know that the hostess told us that the booth was for us and allowed us to sit there. We ordered our salads which arrived rather slow and realized we only had one place setting. It took a while to grab someone's attention and get another place setting. Then my wife realized they never gave her a napkin. Again we had to track someone down for a napkin. It took a much longer time than usual to get our main course which certainly was not our servers fault. In fact she was very friendly and did her best under the circumstances.shout out to the server with blond hair who is opening up her own Yoga studio. All in all it was not the best experience tonight but the food is always good at Mill Creek. Just wish it was run as well as Mims in Roslyn. We will still go back.
