Had dinner their tonight with 12 people. One would think with a crowd like that the service would be excellent. I guess they don't care because they add their own tip. The food was excellent, but the service had a lot to be desired. Asked for a Diet Coke, waited way too long to get it. My friend ordered one... More

Whenever I am near Centerport on Long Island I make a point of having crab cakes at Mill Pond, a well established restaurant on Long Island's northern shore that calls itself a "Seafood Kitchen and Bar". It is a label well deserved. A friend and I went for brunch on a cold December Saturday, eager to be seated on the... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent. Beautiful water views. The food is superb. My short ribs had terrific flavor and was extremely tender. The lobster mac n' cheese had just the right blend of ingredients. Portion sizes were generous. Lastly the service is just right.

Table of 6 we sat in back of restaurant. Cozy, comfortable setting. Bartender was courteous & pleasant conversation. Waiter was friendly & helpful with menu info. Great variety on menu. Steaks,chops,seafood & pasta mains but appetizers, soups & salads sounded great. I had their sushi flight--outstanding. Plus they had a delicious lobster bisque. We will definitely be back!

We've been dining at Mill Pond House for many years and I've never been disappointed! It's probably the only place where you can eat Italian food, sushi, fish and steak and they're all amazing! We always have sushi for our appetizer and it's even better here than Japanese restaurants. The fish is so fresh it's almost moving. My husband usually... More

Found this during an Opentable search (not knowing the area well). Decent reviews and has outside seating with an extensive bar menu. Lets try it. Drinks were just ok. Sangria, half ice for $14. Eh. An overly strong Coconut Mojito. 5-6 beers on tap, normal bottled. Not a wino, but seemed to be well stocked. The calarmari we ordered was... More

A guide in a local house museum told us about this place when we asked about a restaurant on the water. The deck was filled except for one table in the sun, and since it was hot we went inside. We were the only people there so it was quiet, it is beautifully decorated in a simple country style, the... More

Fabulous food and a beautiful view of Centerport Harbor; Family friendly for brunch, lunch or dinner - a little pricey, but worth it. A varied menu with something for everybody; steak, fish, sushi, pasta, etc. The outdoor "enclosed patio' bar and dining area is very comfortable in all weather. Valet parking makes entry easy, but exiting onto Rt.25A can be... More

Friendly service, food was very good. A little bit pricy though. Parking is kind of a pain, very slopped. Nice view, indoor & outdoor seating. Was an old restaurant.
