“Awesome food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Miller's is a restaurant my family goes to every year we come down and the food never disappoints!!! The prices are VERY reasonable. Last night I ordered the "Pick Two" option and got a broiled crab cake and fried shrimp! DELICIOUS!!!!! Best crab cake I've had down here in the Outer Banks! Our server's name was Simon - he was VERY personable and helpful when deciding what choices to make. I also love that you can go outside and get pictures by the water. We were there early so we could go to the outlets afterwards, so we ended up getting a 20% discount! Apparrently if you go before 5pm you get a 20% discount off your bill! So that was also a nice suprise!

“Miller's on the waterfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We took our family, a party of seven, to the restaurant on a Saturday night. I called ahead, but they did not take reservations, but we went anyway. The hostess said we would be seated in about 15 minutes, they would put a couple of tables together for us, and we should wait on the deck or bar. So, out to the deck we went. Great view of the sound, and the weather was nice enough to be outside. There was no drink waitress on the deck. My brother-in-law and I went to the bar to get drinks for all of us -- there was only one bar tender. Granted he was do the best he could, but he could not keep up, and we waited there about 10 minutes -- he did acknowledge we were there and he was trying. They called us to the table before we could be served. So a low rating on the bar.
The restaurant was moderately full -- only two or three small tables were open when we were seated. The waiter was prompt. Took drink and appetizer orders and those came pretty quick. He took the dinner orders, and they were about as fast as you would expect for a party of seven, but all the hot food was served hot. I had the flounder stuffed with crabmeat -- it was an ample portion, well seasoned, and a fair price [about $19.00]. I smapled others dishes, steamed shrimp, crab legs and the like. All were good.

Overall I give Miller's a very good. The staff tries hard, and are very friendly. The food is very good, though not outstanding, and it's fair priced. The table staff was prompt, but they do need help in the bar -- one lone guy just doesn't cut it and no deck waitress. They can really do better on this one. Yeah, I'd go back, but with a little more awareness of what to expect.

“Terrible customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This review is based only on the customer service (or lack thereof) that we experienced while at Millers. We didn't even stay for dinner as we had planned because the service was so terrible. We went to Millers on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. We expected all of the restaurants in the area to be pretty busy as it was a holiday weekend, but we were unkindly reminded of this by the hostess when we arrived. We asked for a table for 4 and the hostess (who couldn't even muster a smile or a hello when we walked up to the stand) told us that it would be a "40 minute wait because it's a holiday weekend and we're really busy". Okay, Captain Obvious...we were very aware that it was a holiday weekend and that we would have to wait, no need for the attitude. We fully expected that and had no issue with it. She told us we could go on the deck and order drinks & appetizers if we wanted to while we waited. We decided to stick out the 40 minute wait and grabbed a seat outside. My dad went to get drinks for everyone and after waiting 10 minutes at the bar, finally asked the bartender if he could order his drinks. The bartender snapped at him and said that he had to make drinks for all of the servers first (to serve their tables) and then he could start serving the people at the bar. As the rude hostess at the front previously said, the restaurant was really busy because it was a holiday weekend. With that in mind, why would the ENTIRE restaurant have only ONE bartender making/serving drinks? It makes absolutely no sense. My dad waited another 5-10 minutes & asked the bartender again about getting a drink. This time he snapped at my dad really bad and said, "okay, since you're in such a rush, what do you want?" I don't think that waiting 15-20 minutes for a drink at a bar/restaurant is acceptable at all under any circumstance. My dad let him know that there were several other people in line in front of him. At that point we were so disgusted by the service that we decided to leave. We went to another restaurant down the street that had excellent customer service & great food despite being super busy. We have a lot of friends/family that vacation in the Nags Head area over the summer; I will be sure to tell each and every one of them about the horrible customer service that this restaurant has and to steer clear of this establishment. It's a shame, but at least there are many other restaurants in the area that deserve the business.
