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

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

Portions could be a little larger, especially the turkey dinner on Sunday nights. Always very good service.

I liked that they had some healthier options for breakfast! My breakfast bowl with beans, kale, quinoa, etc was extremely large...enough for 2 people!

I read a nasty review about a family that placed a order for several take out orders and then the husband showed up 15 minutes later and ordered the same thing so the lady trashed the place. The first response for complete embarrassment is usually anger ? And that review was no exception. It was totally the families fault. My... More
