About this business
From Our Editors
Mill Creek Tavern?s nautically themed dining room excites the eyes with model ships, wood crackling in a stone fireplace, and the restaurant?s logo of crossed canoe paddles. Meanwhile, the aroma of freshly caught seafood and juicy steaks on the grill signals the feast to come, much like the smell of cigar smoke signals a spritz of Winston Churchill cologne. A part of the Mim?s family of restaurants, Mill Creek Tavern has been a Bayville staple for more than a quarter century. One of the tavern?s owners is always onsite holding the entrees to a consistently lofty standard, inspiring a rave review from Joanne Starkey of The New York Times, who recommended ?the fall-from-the-bones-tender baby-back ribs, a perfectly grilled fillet of lemon sole, and a rousing rendition of chicken scarpariello with meat on the bone and lots of garlic, sausage, and potatoes.?
