The Mill Pond has been open in Carnarvon for many years and never disappoints. It is located right beside the snowmobile trail and is very convenient for a lunch spot. The owners and staff are very welcoming and the food is always tasty.

The Mill Pond Restaurant is one of those favorite places to go to when you crave down home grandma style meals. You can count on the prime rib special to be always fork tender, done to your specification & dee-licious. When we worked at one of the many children's camps in this area my husband would always bring me here... More

The new restaurant, Rhubarb, moved to this location about a year ago after over 20 years in their original location in Eagle Lake. A local favourite spot for a casual lunch or fir fine dining. I would give it 5 stars!

Sorry but you are mistaken. The rhubarb restaurant replaced "that place in carnarvon" not "the mill pond ". The millpond is very much still in operation and has been family owned and operated for 22 years now. We aren't going anywhere. More

So glad we went 10 mins north of minden. It was delicious, friendly, quick service, great value, pleasant atmosphere. Definitely be back. Highly recommended the prime rib. So tender... More

Two of us stopped in for lunch. Fast service and, simple, tasty, fresh, food. We left with full belly's and a bill under 24 bucks. Real food at fast food prices. For breakfast and lunch, the Millpond really has no competition in the area . Dinners are decent also. The place doesn't look too flashy from the outside, but the... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night, which is when they have their prime rib special. You have a choice of large or small portions of beef, and there is also mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, carrots, and gravy. The price includes tea or coffee. I also had a yummy heated raisin butter tart with ice cream. The atmosphere is... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but there are always lots of cars in the parking lot so you just know it is a popular place. Right on Hwy 35, it is convenient for many travellers to and from the cottage. It is also a favourite of local Haliburton, Minden and Carnarvon residents. I had heard good... More
