Good food & prices and service. Decent menu selection. Short drive out of Minden but open more than options in town for a dine in place.

We had our first visit to the Mill Pond Restaurant. Staff was very friendly upon our arrival and greeted us right away. We had made reservations for the picnic area that overlook a lake. Hand sanitizer was available and we went to our table. The...takeout window was very busy which is always a good sign. Patio area is an area with well spaced out picnic tables. Area was spotless. Nothing fancy but who needs fancy? Our server was very friendly and welcoming. Some of my family are fussy eaters so for example we ordered liver with no bacon and no onions. Our orders came out quickly. Our food was hot and exactly as we ordered. Fries are amazing. A few bites in and we knew we would be coming back. Our server checked on us and when we told her this was our first time there, she took the time to welcome us and chatted with us about the area. Unfortunately we didn’t have room to try the desserts. Food is reasonably priced. Throughout our meal, people were coming and going for take out. Thank you Mill Pond, we will be back.More

Dine here quite frequently and am always impressed by the service as well as the quality of the food - flavourful and home-made.

Always good food! Quite a variety of lunch and dinner meals. Special meals Prime Rib Beef, Turkey dinners on weekends. An awesome sauce on the shrimp/chicken pasta! The best greek salad in the county! Freshly baked pies, not on the menu, depends on what has...been made that day. Everything here is delicious!More

We have enjoyed The Millpond on a weekly basis for the past 3 years. By far the Millpond has the BEST breakfast in all of Minden/Canarvan as well as a great menu with many options! Stephanie who is a server there makes our experience wonderful...each and every time, in fact she is the main reason along with the food that we go every week. Unfortunately, this summer we did experience hostel behaviour on a couple of occasions when Stephanie was not there by a younger blond server. We have discussed this with other locals and they have experienced the same hostel behaviour by the same younger blond server. I hope the Millpond addresses this girls behaviour or we will stop going, as we look forward to a pleasant experience each and every time. However on a good note, we highly recommend this restaurant and appreciate the kitchens efforts to serve great hot food even when it is insanely busy during tourist and holiday times. Keep up the great work!!More

Best burger in the county. We had the prime rib last week. Cooked to death and only luke warm. Gravy turned to gel while I was eating, mashed potatoes cold. We were there at 5pm. Great place for breakfast or lunch. find somewhere else for...dinner.More

Visited here on a lunchtime.The food was mediocre with cheap ingredients.We had quesadillas which consisted of cheap chicken and rubbery cheese. Would not rush back. Service was also slow unless you were a local otherwise you were ignored. Would not visit again. Most disappointing meal...of our stay in Canada.More

I've been stopping here for 25 years when my travels take me to the area and I've never been disappointed. The food is very good, the portions are generous, the prices are reasonable and the service is pleasant and attentive. If that doesn't work for...you I don't know what more to say. Give it a try.More

Excellent food, very generous portions. Waitress was very accomodating, allowing us to order dinner although we were earlier than the times indicated for serving dinner. Desserts were fabulous. Best cocnut cream pie and rapberry pie in the world.
