About the restaurant
Window seating is first come, first serve depending on how early you make your reservation. Parties larger than 5 are unable to be seated next to the window. We do our best to accommodate all requests but aren't always able to seat everyone that requests a window seat by the window.

Mill Pond Steakhouse is the only up-scaled steakhouse in the midlands. We have a well developed staff that is committed to your dining needs. It starts from the time you pick up the phone to make a reservation to when you are welcomed at the front door and lasts forever. When you arrive to the Mill Pond Steakhouse in Boykin, SC you take a step back in time. Mill Pond Steakhouse offers rustic elegance with southern hospitality and a one of a kind dining experience.

Parties of 6 or more are required to call the restaurant at 803-425-8825 and ask to speak to management.

If you can't make your reservation on time, please call to let us know or else your table may be given to someone else. Thank you!

About the restaurant
Located in the historic Congaree Vista Motor Supply has been serving progressive, New World cuisine using classic French culinary techniques for over 20 years. The menu features contemporary New American cuisine, with nods to Creole, Cajun, New Southern, French, Italian and Asian cuisine. We are Columbia's foremost "farm to fork" restaurant, working with local, sustainable farms for produce, meats, SC seafood and more. Seafood is caught off of the Carolina coast, and all of our stocks, sauces and desserts are made on site, including our charcuterie, with house-made sausages, bacon, country pate, and rillettes, all the way down to the pickles and mustard. Our early 19th century, solid-oak bar with marble columns, imported from Europe, serves 180+ fine wines, an extensive list of imported, domestic and local craft beers, as well as an artisan farm-to-shaker cocktail list made from house-infused liquors, handmade bitters, barrel-aged spirits and locally-sourced ingredients and garnishes.

Reserved a table for 6 for a small family birthday dinner. Service and food were superb. Ambiance was very nice. Parking, however, is a challenge. Unfortunately there is little the restaurant can do about the parking. Parking notwithstanding, I will return to the Travinia’s soon and frequently!

About the restaurant
SakiTumi boasts an authentic menu, with both fresh sushi (we have tuna overnighted from Hawaii) and flavorful grill items. Located in the heart of the Vista, we are down a quaint alleyway in a historic building that used to house the production of Model T fords.

Awarded "Best Sushi Restaurant" by the readers of the State newspaper, we continue our ethics of quality by ordering fresh, #1 ahi tuna along with salmon, butterfish and more. Our flavorful grill items include a variety of hibachi-style plates, tacos and even a Wagyu beef burger.

Serving Columbia as a local, independent restaurant since 2006, we have made friends and family from all over the southeast and continue to provide delicious food in a casual, upbeat and energetic atmosphere. Music videos or sports are playing on our large tv's behind the bar, and we have a nice collection of wine and speciality drinks to compliment our food.

We invite you to get fresh with us anytime.

Our food and service was great. Renee H was a fantastic server and took great care of us. The seafood tower was incredible but the drawn butter was very cold even with the flame. That’s what needs to be fixed. Always have a great time.

Very lovely dining experience! 10/10 recommend! Brought my SO here for a birthday dinner and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The food was savory and we felt appreciated as customers! The manager came around multiple times as well ensuring that we had everything we desired. We will definitely be returning!
