Description: Pond View Fine Dining is like no other dining experience in the Waycross area; or to be more precise, like no other dining experience in the greater southeast Georgia area.We are a casual fine dining establishment which produces a high quality culinary product at reasonable prices. We pride ourselves in bringing in the best of everything & serving distinctive & desirable cuisine. We feature a unique atmosphere that is nice but not stuffy, classy but not class defined, elegant but not intimidating. Our goal is to give you a wonderful dining experience. We do not seek to get you in & get you out, but rather to have a paced & pleasant dining event that will last well beyond your last bite & keep you coming back for more.The owners, along with our head chef, work together to craft an exclusive menu which we constantly update. We also create weekly specials that add even more flavor to our everyday fair.And we have developed an exceptional wine list that will give you a taste of some of the more common grapes from around the world, but will also tempt you with a number of rare varietals that you may not have encountered anywhere else.And lest we forget, we have a wonderful Inn located just above restaurant, where you can stay in comfort & style with easy access to historic downtown Waycross.

Absolutely the most delicious dishes, excellent wine list, and effecient service in the Waycross area. The quality, preparation, and presentation of the chef's dishes are impeccable.The atmosphere is cosy and relaxed, yet intimate. Great place for dining with a significant other or just a fun outing with friends. Highly recommend Wine Pairings once every 2 months on Tuesday. The chef creates 5 dishes that pair with the 5 wines chosen by the wine connoisseur. I've never been dissapointed with the food, wine, or service. Highly recommend PondView Restaurant.

“Gormet Delight”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Rather that take the freeway to Charleston we decided to take back roads to really see what our country is like. Waycross was a great example of what was and is now. The downtown area looked once to be prosperous with its beautiful antique buildings. But most are abandoned with the exception of the Pond View Inn. It was Saturday night and we had no problem getting a table. In fact between 6:30 and 7 there was a total of 4 diners. This worried us until we tasted the Lobster Bisque. It was so creamy and flavorful. The rest of our meal was just as delicious especially the clams in beurre blanc sauce with tomatoes and herbs.
The service was outstanding once we were seated. We, along with others walked in and stood around wondering if should seat ourselves. There was a woman who did this but she seemed to be stationed at the back of the restaurant or doing something else.
The décor included walls of framed artwork that resembled that of high school students (I'm an Art teacher). The rest of the décor was comfortable and pleasing. They have a full bar and a good wine list.
When we left with our take out package of peach bread pudding to die for, it was 7:45 and only a few more guests were there. Hopefully this establishment can stay alive, for the food and service is outstanding. And no, there isn't a view of a pond.

“Good food, great wine, interesting decor”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Had the special of the day, fettuccine with marinara sauce and chorizo. Except for some of the pasta sticking together and the sauce having somewhat large chunks (at least you can really tell they used fresh tomatoes!), it was pretty good. The chef picked an excellent wine to pair with it, for just $7 a glass, and I enjoyed looking at the paintings by local artists.

This inn is quite the find. We arrived later than expected on a Thursday night and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Everything was super clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay here again.
