I love the location, the atmosphere, the local organic foods, the service is always good, I would recommend it for a special family night out, date nite, or lunch with a friend...very nice...wish I could afford to go more often!

Everything is very fresh and I think locally produce. Asparagus was best I ever had by a mile, grown on site. I ordered a steak and I think I could have cooked and prepared it better at home. Wife's pasta dish didn't have much taste. Everything was bland and costs a lot. Pass on this.

We found Elderberry Pond Restaurant online. It was a convenient midpoint for my husband and I to meet his sister for lunch. It had great reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is roomly, and beautifully appointed. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The food was so very good....the men had the angus burgers, which they raved about.... More

Nice atmosphere, service was exceptional, my pork was good, squash soup was perfect, my husband did not like his 1/2 roasted chicken in a bowl, too hard to cut, was tippy and bird was tough. I like that they raise the chickens and pigs right there. Farm to table!!!! I will definitely go back, just not get chicken in bowl.

Although you are not far off the road, you have the feeling of being way back in the woods. The trees were gorgeous even though it was raining. The restaurant uses food from their organic farm for most (maybe all) of their menu items. Our meals were excellent! Service was outstanding and the ambiance was elegant. Look forward to going...

This place is overrated. We made reservations for 7. They wanted us there by 6:30. There were only 10 people in the whole place. Turns out the chef wanted to go home early to be with his kids. Our meal was a joke. Farm to Table ? Mashed potatoes with chuncks of potatoe in the center, small pieces of pork/ham... More

Recent lunch with a friend was quite perfect. I hadn't been here in quite some time and was not disappointed. Service is spot on but reservations are recommended. We opted for the special soup of the day -mushroom bisque very good. An appetizer of roasted garlic with brie was wonderful . Entree lunches of crab cakes and vegetarian penne pasta... More

All my wife wanted for our anniversary was "a special lunch, where we could sit outside in the sunshine with a view, have a glass of wine and have Creme Brule for dessert." Ha! No pressure! Long story short, I found Elderberry Pond and scored a perfect 10! The outdoor veranda was spot on. The service was excellent and the... More

Beautiful restaurant that provides both indoor and outdoor seating with a view. The menu has a large selection of fresh, local foods. Everything was delicious and the service was great. We will definitely be back!
