Amada is not a typical, trendy tapas restaurant. It is something else entirely. Amada serves authentic Spanish tapas based on the earthy Mediterranean flavors that have long been the passion and expertise of founder and executive chef, Jose Garces - but Chef Garces goes beyond tradition, interpreting centuries-old tapas recipes.<br /><br />Specialties of the House<br />Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp,Tortilla Española, Lobster Paella, Whole Roasted Suckling Pig (must be ordered 72 hours in advance, excluding Sundays), Seasonal Sangrías<br /><br />Private Parties: Amada welcomes groups of all sizes. Festive settings, service and menus are perfect for intimate dinners with friends, special occasions and holidays, corporate meetings and staff parties. Events can be booked throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms seven days a week. For parties of 12 or more, please call our private events team at 267-284-7979 or email events@garcesgroup.com<br />

"Solid food even after all these years but perhaps the LOUDEST restaurant I've ever eaten in. If you need to talk to one or more of your companions go elsewhere. Otherwise bring a pad and a pen."

The Mill Pond Steak House is the only up-scaled steakhouse in the midlands. We offer the best Certified Angus Beef that is aged for 40 plus days before it is served to the guest. We have a well developed and seasoned staff that is committed to your dining needs. It starts from the time you pick up the phone to make a reservation to the time you are welcomed at the front door and lasts forever. When you arrive to the Mill Pond Steakhouse in Boykin, SC you take a step back in time. The restaurant is composed of three historic buildings established in the early 19th century. The kitchen was the old Post office, the bar was the old General Store and the main dining room was another General Store relocated to its present location. From the heart pine floors to the reclaimed lumber that was once walls of several cabins in Boykin, you realize that you are surrounded by history. Mill Pond Steak House offers rustic elegance with southern hospitality and a one of a kind dining experience.

"When the best thing about a restaurant is the room itself... Mill Pond is a cute venue with interesting vistas but the food is priced sky-high and the quality just isn't there. When I'm coughing up $45 for a Bone-in Strip Steak it should be 1) Prime, not Black Angus Choice 2) not defrosted before it is cooked. Appetizers were meh. Wine list extremely compact but not unapproachable or overpriced. While there are not alot of alternatives in the area if you are going to present yourself as a specialty steakhouse and charge as they do you have to deliver the same level of ingredients and preparation."
