Nestled on the pond in historic Elizabeth Park the Pond House is surrounded by gardens & offers four seasons of charm with a menu to match. Changed seasonally we offer eclectic comfort food that reflects the down to earth but playful spirit of our staff. Announce Spring's arrival with a walk through the park followed by brunch on the patio. Stop and smell the world famous roses then linger over dinner as sun slowly sets over the trees. Lunch, Dinner, Brunch & Take out. The Pond House Cafe- stylish, fun & playful.

This is such a unique place. The deviled eggs and chicken liver mouse were amazing apps. Braised short rib and meatloaf entrees were even better.

The food was great, and our server, Kyle was awesome!!! Can't say enough about his playful, attentive and delightful presence, which totally enhanced an already special dinner. Hope to have him as our server next time, and the next.......

Sooooo good! We just had a special occasion brunch before a matinee show at Infinity Hall. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Noteworthy dishes: apple and brie omelette, Katz Deli omelette, and the special oatmeal raisin cookie crusted french toast. Linda, our server made sure we enjoyed our experience from start to finish. The cafe manager, Monica, went above and beyond to address a food allergy, allaying all concerns. Everyone in our party, from 30 year old to 87, enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. Truly great start to a special day.

Although the restaurant was not at all crowded, service was slow.
Food choices were plentiful and what we chose was delicious.

Tiffany was terrific. We ten were celebrating an 84th birthday of a young vibrant man. The event was totally enjoyable even though the plans were last minute. Also appreciate Louis giving to Community.

This was our second visit to Pond House. We very much enjoyed the small plates. It gave us the opportunity to try new foods and food we love. We will definitely be back. The specials that are offered on certain days are fun and simply awesome. The bread with oil and balsamic vinegar I could eat all day long. We truly enjoyed our unique bacon vinaigrette on our salad. The meatloaf is divine and we absolutely loved the flatbread. The drink selections are great too. I had a Pond House cocoa with a shot of Captain and it was awesome, especially with the marshmallow on top for a cold night! We look forward to returning for yet another date night and trying something new.

Had an exceptionally delicious lunch with some workmates. Would highly recommend this venue for lunch. Have not been in for dinner or other so cannot give a review on that. Food has been excellent both times I've been in.
