Description: Pond View Fine Dining is like no other dining experience in the Waycross area; or to be more precise, like no other dining experience in the greater southeast Georgia area.We are a casual fine dining establishment which produces a high quality culinary product at reasonable prices. We pride ourselves in bringing in the best of everything & serving distinctive & desirable cuisine. We feature a unique atmosphere that is nice but not stuffy, classy but not class defined, elegant but not intimidating. Our goal is to give you a wonderful dining experience. We do not seek to get you in & get you out, but rather to have a paced & pleasant dining event that will last well beyond your last bite & keep you coming back for more.The owners, along with our head chef, work together to craft an exclusive menu which we constantly update. We also create weekly specials that add even more flavor to our everyday fair.And we have developed an exceptional wine list that will give you a taste of some of the more common grapes from around the world, but will also tempt you with a number of rare varietals that you may not have encountered anywhere else.And lest we forget, we have a wonderful Inn located just above restaurant, where you can stay in comfort & style with easy access to historic downtown Waycross.

We made lunch reservations for a birthday party (just 6 people). We could not even get seated before the waitress was trying to take our drink order. She came back a couple more times and we finally ask what type of sodas they had and she wasn't sure ... She thought coke and diet coke. When she finally came to... More

Let me begin by saying the food was wonderful - when it finally came. The staff were great even gave us a tour of inn portion of establishment. Atmosphere is incredible. For a salad and entree meal we were there for 2 hours. Then again, it took over an hour to get our food. Once again, the food was great... More

Attended their wine pairing dinner last night [3/18/14], with mixed results. The five-course meal was good, with fine presentations. The wine choices were excellent; all from Italian terroires, all sophisticated blends. Service was attentive and efficient. Price at $50 was less than what I've paid for lesser meals elsewhere. However, there were several problems. The most glaring was the awful... More

On business and friends that live in Waycross took me here. Love the historical vibe you get on the outside and the 5 star vibe you get when you eat! I had shrimp and grits for an appetizer and finished that off with the Gorgonzola Chicken. Wait staff was very good and the atmosphere was fantastic. Really enjoyed!

The Pond View and its next-door neighbor theater seem to be the heartbeat of what's left of Waycross' downtown. Is there nobody in Waycross government with a feel for historic preservation? OK, off my soapbox. The Pond View was a fabulous find, with its high ceilings (it was a Levi Strauss jeans factory in a former life), original wood floors,... More

We've enjoyed Pond View numerous times! I love the crab cakes and my husband enjoys the pork roulade. They also do mussels and clams really well. Soaking the bread in that broth is scrumptious! Also they have an excellent choice of wines.

Wasn't expecting a (to me, a way) five star restaurant in Waycross, Georgia. We had excellent service. I had the sole salmon risotto with beurre blanc and a wonderful salad with a home made curry dressing. This entree was 15 bucks! had a nice glass of Cab with the meal for 6.00. What a wonderful place! Can't wait for my... More

We read the reviews and were very excited about our dinner. What a disappointment! The special for the day was anything but special. I have had better meals that cost less at Red Lobster.The wait time was unusually long for our food to arrive, 45 minutes to get our salad. The staff was apologetic and attentive, but this did not...

My husband's company held their Christmas Party at Pond View. Everything was delicious from appetizers to entrées. The steak was really phenomenal.... I would highly recommend it to any couple wanting a nice dinner out.

My wife and I ate at Pond View recently and we certainly enjoyed the meal. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful in making suggestions. The chef did an outstanding job with preparing the dishes we ordered. The question I forgot to answer was about the name Pond View as there is certainly no pond or view of a pond... More
