Had a lovely dinner here. Appetizers were delicious and lobster didn't disappoint. Good location for a large group. We were just two, but feel was still warm and cozy even though it's a pretty large spot. Service was prompt and very friendly.

We arrived at 1:30pm with our 2 kids. We thought it would be fun to sit by the lake while on our vacation. The restaurant had about 2 other parties there - 1 inside and 1 outside. They set a table of 4 of for us outside, but perhaps they could have wiped the seats down of spider webs. I... More

We went here for dinner with a group of 12. The staff was outstanding and very attentive. The food was tasty but not large portions for the price but you are paying for quality. For example the crab cakes were pure crab meat. Very nice ambiance .

Finally had an opportunity to dine at this well-known eating establishment. We had been told in the past by friends that this was for the older crowd but apparently those telling us that hadn't been here lately or I guess it depends on how you define "older crowd." I was defining it as 65 and above. Think more 30's -... More

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
