Not to be missed

This place is outstanding. If you are in Waycross, this is a must. It might even be worth a trip to Waycross. We had the shrimp & grits, lobster bisque and peach bread pudding. All were excellent. The service was very good and the ambiance was pleasant.

I regret to inform you the Pond View went out of business at the end of March? 2015. We have stayed there several times in the past and made reservations in February for a stay the 17th of April. The web site now shows "For Sale"! We found out in time to book another hotel. We will miss the Pond... More

Gourmet meal with great service at a reasonable price. Looks like the restaurant was put in an old building. There are sections of the walls missing.

The company my husband works for had their yearly party here again. It was so so good! The brie appetizer is my favorite! I had the ribeye, cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband had the salmon and I wish I had ordered that. It was amazing. The sauce they drizzled over it was to die for! All their salad dressings... More

What a find! The restaurant is in a nice spot in old downtown and there is plenty of free on-street parking. Food was fabulous and there was a good wine list. Staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. We will definitely dine here again when next in the area.

We live in Tifton and had guests from Florida so drove over to the Okefenokee Swamp to see the Light Show. Was recommended the Pond View for dinner. So pleased, it was just perfect. Each of us ordered a different item and absolutely no issues. The food, wine, and staff could not have been better. No rush to see us... More

Pond View sure is a nice break from the all the chain restaurants, fried chicken joints, and "chinese" food restaurants here in Waycross. My wife and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the food, and certainly the wine. Planning my next trip back right now!!

On our way to Florida, we stopped in Waycross for the night. Had dinner at the restaurant and stayed upstairs in one of the "Inn" rooms (see separate review). The restaurant was pretty good, and a nice attempt at "fine dining" in a small town. Quaint atmosphere in an old downtown building. White linen tablecloths, albeit all were noticeably wrinkled....

What a fantastic meal my husband and I had. We both had the rib eye steak and it was cooked perfectly for both of us. For dessert we had their cream brûlée, it was delicious! Will definitely go back.
