The ambiance is very nice; we had a table overlooking the lake. The service is extremely attentive. The appetizers were good but not great. One of our starters were oysters. They came with a watery sauce of some kind, although we asked for cocktail sauce. The sauce was so thin that you couldn't keep much in the shell. The clams... More

Dinner for 3 on a Friday evening. I've been here a number of times in the past 25 years. My most disappointing visit. The food was pretty good , but the service was horrid. And I was really looking forward my last dinner at the shore before returning home ...sort of a tradition. But there are too many fabulous restaurants... More

This very large yet somehow intimate restaurant is delightfully situated where a mill once stood waterside. The light in the room is lovely as is the view of swans, ducks and lily pads. Employees are very welcoming, service is professional, food is excellent. Parking is plentiful and outdoor dining is available. For this couple a return visit is in order.

It's a great place for a special meal or a high end dinner. However, the food and service are always excellent. I will keep going back.

If you're thinking of having your wedding there then you should think twice (or even three times). Horrible experience and poor management. Failed to inform us that our coordinator was no longer there. Lack of food, staff, and no one to talk to. Despite paying for their best package, cocktail hour was embarrassing and main service was disorganized, at best.... More

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at The Mill in Spring Lake Heights. We were staying in Ocean Grove and this was not too far away. We had been there before and wanted to return for a wonderful romantic dinner! The food was great, the menu was extensive, and the service was excellent. The place itself is beautiful and... More

Brunch at the Mill was - just okay. Food was just okay. Nothing was bad, but nothing was really good either. The room was noisy, very noisy. The service was excellent - but I just would not go back as the experience was not the least bit memorable. Took Mom there for her Birthday and we will find another option... More

We went here for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week, as it is a little pricey for us for a regular visit. Very romantic setting, overlooks a lake with real swans. Food was really good, we had steaks with baked Alaska. Service also outstanding.

Inexpensive drinks and appetizers at the bar. Always a nice clientele, the views of the water and swans are the best. If you want a great dinner, the dining room offers great food and excellent service. Never disappointed.

We went to The Mill for a special occasion and didn't have to think twice about making a right choice. The place is located on the lake, we enjoyed the view and exotic ginormous swans that were swimming in it. The food presentation was excellent and everything we ordered was delicious. We will definitely come back and highly recommend this... More
