We were a party of 8. Our waitress was attentive, did a great job of getting our orders in a timely manner and each one of us loved the food. We all had different meals. Would recommend any and all. Nice to look out the back at a lake. The cost was reasonable for what you receive. Downside was the... More

Very good breakfast. Service was good as well. Prices are reasonable. Could use some larger tables for larger groups. Only real con is that air conditioning leaks onto the table from the ceiling due to condensation... They need to get the pipes wrapped in insulation... Not very tasty when the drops end up in your coffee.

I have no complaints about the food but I feel the service was poor and the table arrangements were terrible. We came as a party of 6 (not an outrageous amount of people!) and were told we would have to wait at least an hour for a table due to our 'large' party. Thus, we were seated separately. They need...

In case you didn't notice we are a small restaurant all of our tables are tables of 4. We have one table that is for six or more people. So in order for us to accommodate a group of 6, two tables beside each other have to be free at the same time. On weekends in the summer we put... More

When deciding on a nice, quiet value dinner, the Mill Pond is a favourite. We've been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner many times and can't stress enough the efficiency of the waitresses not to mention their honest friendliness. A great relaxing dining experience whether indoors or on the patio. Keep up the good work!!

Went there for dinner with the family while renting a cottage in the area. Don't bother going there. The food is pretty horrible. We barely eat our food. We ordered a range of dishes. Such as Fish & chips, Hot beef sandwich, burgers but they managed to ruin even a simple burger. We all wished we'd taken the extra drive... More

I can't say this enough, if any one has a problem with food or customer service or any product that they get from any business you should always say some thing at the time so that the problem can be fixed. We aren't in business to make people unhappy, we want our customers to be happy. I can't go back... More

You can't beat the Mill Pond for breakfast. In fact, I truly believe that they serve the best breakfast in the entire county. Service from our waitress Stephanie is beyond excellent. I only regret that by posting here that more people will now be visiting this establishment which could end up with future lineups to be seated. I shouldn't have... More

We have gone here a couple of times for lunch. It's okay. My Reuben was good. However my wife's quesadillas had processed cheese slices? They need the step it up a bit.

I'm sorry you didn't like you quesadilla. I've never had any complaints about that dish before. I can assure you that we did not and never have put cheese slices in the quesadilla. I am the owner and chef, my two cooks are very well trained and would never put cheese slices in the quesadilla. When ever you have a... More

We popped into this family run gem for lunch with our son while up visiting family. They're located in a beautiful and easy to find spot - just perfect. We had the potato skins to start and our son's chicken fingers came out at the same time (which is great for impatient children)! Both were very good and came out... More
