We went here for Mother's Day dinner with our daughter, her husband, and our granddaughter, where our reserved table was waiting for us. The five of us were attended to promptly even though it was busy. The venue is small for seating but serves great...food at reasonable prices. They completed renovations last year, which gives it a fresh look. Our server was very funny. There is some outdoor seating and a smaller room, both of which provide viewing of the pond.More

Excellent food, excellent service. A hidden gem. Had we not encountered issues with our resort restaurant, we never would have tried this place. So glad we ate here!

On our way back from Dorset to our Lodge where we were staying we stopped here for lunch. Great service and fast . Very busy spot. We learned a long time ago to go to places that are busy as people know a good thing....Lots of choices on the menu . Cheeseburgers and Club house sandwiches were our choices Yummy fries on the side. Quaint place with a nice view of a pond . Lots of parking and easy access. We recommend this spot.More

Can’t say enough great things about this restaurant. The service, food and menu selections are awesome and the renovations look amazing but I must say didn’t have a problem with how the restaurant looked prior to the reno’s. Even the location with the view of...the pond is gorgeous. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant.More

A mom and pop restaurant with old time charm. This eatery offers breakfast and lunch 5 days a week and 3 days they also serve dinner. Met some friends there for an enjoyable lunch. The omelet was one of the best ever. Prices are reasonable...with the menu offering standard fare. There is a patio available in warmer weather which overlooks a large pond.More

Was looking forward to taking our family out to a home cooking style restaurant. Sadly while the service was satisfactory, the food was not. It was exceptionally expensive for what we received in the way of badly overcooked food. Liver was cardboard, chicken was tough...and very dry. Pasta was undercooked. Needless to say it was a horrible diner. Don't waste your money on this placeMore

Returned for breakfast after the dinner chaos of several weeks ago. Great breakfast, reasonably priced and excellent service. Would highly recommend. Just don’t go at the dinner hour as they can’t handle it right now.

Arrived to a pretty empty restaurant, we waited about twenty minutes for the waitress to take our order. It was for rinks only , we waited longer to be able to place our food order. 45 minutes later , we asked about our meals, and...were told that it would be 10 more minutes since the kitchen was too busy with take out orders. We watched as several people came to the takeout window and ordered food, received their food , and we still had not been served. Finally , we got oar food, no apology for the wait , not a care in the world! Lindsey and Stephanie ( both ex employees) would NEVER have let this happen! Terrible experience. I have eaten there 20 t0 30 times in the past few years. It is a shame ! Probably my last visit there.More

My husband, daughter, in laws and I were in the area over the weekend. We have visited the area three times previously and this was our first meal at Mill Pond. First I must say our server Kim was an absolute treat! We were thoroughly...entertained! The food was fantastic. Home cooked meals prepared when ordered. The deserts were homemade and out of this world. I couldn’t recommend a place more. We were all so stuffed and happy when we left. Kim, Thank you so much! We will be back again most definitely.More

Arrived for my reservation at 6:15 on July 22nd. The restaurant was completely full and had only 2 waitresses, one of whom was in the parking lot dealing with what looked like a fender bender. Most people did not have their food and were just...sitting there. By 7 pm and with no table imminent and the restaurant actually set to close at 7pm we left to find another restaurant. Very disappointing experience. Since this restaurant is only open at the dinner hour 2 nights a week, I would not recommend it for dinner - they just don't have the staffing.More

We have had several breakfasts here. This restaurant is always full, sometimes with customers lined up outside. Reasonably priced. We come here often when at cottage.

I could agree that renovations are not a fine dine. But I never got a bad food inside or take out. If you want a black tie affair....stay in Toronto. No need to come to our county. Food is fresh, made with care and on...time. And saved us from going without, when we didn't had power. I love it, I like it, I will always go back. Thank you.More

Good 'diner' style eateries are few and far between in this area. The decor needs an upgrade, but the food doesn't. Great quality, properly prepared grub at a reasonable price. This is where the 'locals' go.
