Mill Pond House
Located at 437 East Main Street in Centerport, the Mill Pond House is known for its spectacular water views, fine American cuisine, award-winning wine list and outstanding service. Once home to the Mill Pond Inn, this 100-year-old building has been a restaurant since the 1920s, where guests enjoyed great meals and shared drinks around the piano bar. Since then the Mill Pond House has changed hands many times, with the current owners serving patrons since 2004. The restaurant was completely renovated, creating an upscale atmosphere of elegance and comfort. Each table has white tablecloths and black cloth napkins, with tall, tapered candles casting a soft glow. The bar now has an upright piano and there’s banquette seating along one wall. The dining room features beautiful red wall sconces, beige sponge-painted walls and large framed mirrors, while the panoramic windows reveal breathtaking water views of Mill Pond, where swans quietly swim. And for even better unobstructed views of the pond visit the upstairs twin dining room. During the warm months guests can enjoy the large, outdoor patio with umbrella tables – a perfect spot for drinks and appetizers in the evening.

Mill Pond House is not just a steakhouse - Chef Brian Schlitt has paired with Sushi Chef Ching Sheng Li in creating a wide selection of Continental dishes and the freshest and innovative sushi around. If you like seafood, you'll enjoy the raw bar, which includes a jumbo shrimp cocktail and Little Neck clams. In the mood for something decadent? Then try some caviar like American paddlefish caviar and Iranian Osetra. Other popular among patrons dishes include Clam Chowder, Lobster Bisque, Caesar Salad, Crab-Meat Cocktail, Shrimp Cocktail, Linguine with White Clam Sauce, Hash Browns, Onion Rings, Creamed Spinach, Porterhouse For Two, Sirloin, Rib Eye, Pork Chop, Lamb Chops and French Fries. The waterside tiki-bar is the main event of the day, featuring frozen drinks, full menu and unforgettable views - the best Long Island has to offer.

Recognized by AOL City Guide as the best outside dining on Long Island for 2007, and rated 23 for food, 23 for decor, and 22 for service by the 2007 Zagat Restaurant Survey, the Mill Pond House offers the perfect waterfront setting for any occasion. Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or a fun gathering for family and friends, this restaurant will not only meet but exceed all your expectations.

Mill Pond House Reviews

  November, 2014
We checked out a few restaurants for a private party, and ended up going with this one. Most of our friends love this kind of food. We usually try not to eat food this fancy cause of the cost, but we had a good excuse, so we went for it. Good decision as it turned out! They have indoor and outdoor seating; both areas are very pleasant, we decided to stick with indoors though given the weather. The chef was so cool! He was not only happy to customize the menu, but came around to check on us, and we saw him checking on other tables too in the other area of the restaurant. All the appetizers and entrees we ordered were really good. The wine menu was really great with some unexpected choices available including some local options which turned out to be fantastic. For the intimate vibe, the wonderful service from the chef, and the delicious food, I highly recommend this restaurant. Even with the cost! It’s well worth it for what you are getting.

We chose Mill Pond for catering for a party recently on the suggestion of one of the guest, who had eaten there regularly. We never had been there before o we didn’t know what to expect, but our friend helped us pick out entrees. It was a really easy process, the way they do it. There’s a set price per person, and you just pick the options that you want. And there are a lot of options! So that took some doing, but better too many choices than too few, even if it was a bit overwhelming. The appetizers are really scrumptious, and were actually one of my favorite parts of the meal. We went for some seafood choices; I was surprised by how good their sushi rolls are, since it isn’t a specialty, and usually that’s a mistake when you aren’t at a Japanese restaurant. They were awesome though. The pasta and salad were great, and the brunch was incredible. The lobster omelette is one of the tastiest things I’ve had in ages. They make it with gouda, which is so delicious! I totally ran out of room for dessert, but the guests loved the cakes. The drink menu was awesome though, and my wine after dinner was wonderful. The whole menu planning process was relatively easy. We didn’t have any special requests, so there were no complications or surprises. Great place, and glad we did it.
