Wonderful Birthday Brunch

The Sunday brunch here is the best at the Jersey shore. I have tried so many and in terms of the quality, variety and value, all fall short. Whatever your heart desires they have and it is all fresh, good and plentiful. Excellent and attentive staff. You are never rushed and the ambiance is... read more

My daughter and her husband took my other daughter, me and my granddaughter to brunch on Mother's Day. We went here because my daughter loves it. My granddaughter is 5 years old and has disabilities, one being feed by feeding tube. When my daughter got the check, they charged her $18 for my granddaughter. I wanted to say something,but my...

Salmon was very tasty and the chicken dish was excellent - different with the mushroom sauce. Waitstaff was very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal... More

Business Associate and I were in the area and decided to stop in for an early lunch. Everything was exceptional, service was great. Because it was slow the bartender doubled as the maitre de, waiter, and overall comedian. We both had the crab cake entree which was perfect. We shared a calamari appetizer which was also very good. Dessert was... More

This was our first visit to this very nice restaurant. We went for the Sunday brunch. Great attentive service at our table as well as the brunch tables. Nice view of the lake and the the water wheel, even a few swans swimming in the lake. While the restaurant appeared full, with a shower or other function going on in... More

My husband and I attended a wedding at The Mill April 26, 2015. The ceremony at the gazebo by the lake through the cocktail hour and dinner was truly a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and there was so much of it. The seafood smorgasbord during the cocktail hour was outstanding, as was the prime rib station and the... More

Stopped in during happy hour on a Saturday night. Plenty of room at the bar to sit where we enjoyed wine and a delicious small pizza, beef sliders and potato fries. We had a great view of the water. Plenty of seating outside on their deck. Service was great. Our first time there and we will be back.

The Mill is quite close to our summer house, so we eat there from time to time during the spring and summer seasons. Last evening was our first dinner there in about a year. The food was excellent with one qualification. My wife's oysters were served with a commercial-grade cocktail sauce that was disappointing; fortunately they also came with a... More

Came in during the week for the prix fix dinner. Good deal. Three courses for nearly the cost of a regular entre. The mussels appetizer was a keeper. The sauce was bread sopping good.The seafood crepe was okay. I did not love it. My wife's pan ratatouille was delicious. She appreciated having a gluten-free alternative. Nice place with a beautiful... More

The Mill restaurant was suggested to us. And well well well it was superb. From the greeting to the service to the food everything was great including the view of the lake with the swans swimming. Very good food.
