We were visiting family in Mill neck and choose Mill Creek Tavern because they have a very nice menu. I like that they print the daily specials with descriptions and prices. It was a late dinner and both my wife and I opted for appetizers....She selected the Iron Skillet Meatball Parmesan . four homemade meatballs with melted mozzarella, and a pomodoro sauce with a piece of garlic bread on top. Very good. I chose the Crispy Chili Pop Shrimp , baby shrimp( not that small) with a sweet Thai chili sauce, really very good. Also the Tuscan Calamari, fried calamari, marinara, lemon, and a horseradish aioli. Unfortunately the calamari was rubbery and chewy. For dessert, my wife wanted the WARM APPLE CRISP ,Granny Smith apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, rolled oat crumb topping, and vanilla bean ice cream, also very good and a huge portion.More

We are visiting from Ohio and tried this place two nights ago and enjoyed it so much we came back tonight. I had the German Goulash, my daughter had the scallops, and my husband had the Orecchiette pasta, which was a seasonal dish. All were...exceptional. The wait staff is super friendly and helpful choosing what to eat.More

We held a wonderful 100th birthday party at Mill Creek a few months back when the outdoor tent was still up. Our 30 guests were all very pleased with the service and wonderful food. The owner really went out of his way to make us...feel welcome and valued as his guests. It isn't often that you meet someone like this running a restaurant. Very accommodating and pleasant even while dealing with a pandemic. And Vanessa is wunderbar!More

My husband and I have frequented this local restaurant near our home for at least 2 years now. The food is always freshly prepared and delicious! The servers are also very pleasant and accommodating. We usually order pasta with clams, fresh mussels, or another seafood...dish. The menu has a great variety of dishes to choose from. I would highly recommend this local gem!More

Went with tripadvisor recommendations and gave Mill Creek Tavern a try with friends on a Wednesday evening....we were seated right away with a reservation and the place was pretty busy (both the bar and restaurant)....service was very good, albeit a bit slow at times....place is...casual - no need to dress up....the food is the reason you go here- excellent fresh salads, fish dishes, ribs all very tasty and delicious...and the desserts are also really good! We did have a slight problem finding a parking space- the lot next to the restaurant is small. Overall excellent dining experience!!More

unfortunately, no. It is near the water, about a block away but not on the water. Wall's Wharf is on the water in Bayville, however, and offers a great menu for beach dining.
