It took us 5 years vacationing in Spring Lake to get there but it was worth the wait..We had dinner by the window as two gorgeous white swans swam by to add to the atmosphere. The cocktails were great, the food was exceptional and the service was very attentive. What more could you ask for/ We will definitely go back... More

Nice looking room. We we sat at window table with nice view on the pond. Service was excellent. We had Sam. She was very pleasant. The food was terrific. My wife had a great salmon dish while I enjoyed the seafood crepes. Appetizers and desserts were very good too. We ordered off their Pre Fixe menu which was cost saving.... More

The Mill, once the Old Mill, has been around for years. My dad used to take us there when it was the original mill building. There was a kids' wishing well and a picture of President Eisenhower by the door. Well, Ike is no longer President and the old place burned down in '85. The new place is modern and... More

The Mill has been through too many changes to count. As a wedding reception venue, perhaps it's fine. As a place to dine , it's just terrible. They offer happy hour, which is a joke. On two occasions with friends, happy hour was very sad indeed. The servers do not want to help you, and you have to search them... More

Went here for Sunday brunch two times in the past two months and was impressed by the quality (and quantity!) of food. Come with a very healthy appetite!

Thoroughly Enjoyed my "sister" birthday dinner. We ordered the prix fixe dinner which had excellent choices. We started with the calamar and muscles both delicious. For our main courses we both ordered pork chops. We asked that they not be dry and overdone. They were both perfect. Very tender and tasty. It included dessert which was difficult to finish. I...

The food was below average but very overpriced. The service was slow (30 mins from ordering to getting on the table). They forgot to attach a candle for my friend's birthday even though I told them in advance (and they said they would do it). The water view is pretty and the only reason I would give it one star!

I've been to Spring Lake numerous times but I had never eaten at The Mill. Nice surprise. My husband both opted for full dinners on their prix fixe menu and we were not disappointed. It was also very relaxing to have dinner on their porch on a beautiful night. Service was very good.

The Sunday brunch is always good, nice variety of choices. Dinners are well prepared and attractively presented although a bit on the heavy/starchy side. Reliable for meat dishes.
