“Nice view, OK food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Reservations are not accepted so it was suggested that we arrive before 6 pm if we wanted a table for 6 by the window. Our table location was fabulous and our waiter was very friendly. The sunsets are lovely from here. While enjoying our cocktails we shared the mussels Diablo which were nice & spicy. Four of us ordered the Grouper special which was grouper served over lots of mashed potatoes w/some (not much) crab meat on top & hollandaise sauce. It was disappointing. Two ordered tuna & they said the tuna was fine. Unfortunately our entrees were served before we were finished our salads. The hush puppies were delicious!
Just as you would expect at the beach the atmosphere & dress was casual.
If the location was elsewhere (not on the water) I would not rate the restaurant more than average.

“Sunset and Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Got a great table Saturday night oct 5 and the sunset was lovely. The staff is super friendly and very welcoming. The grouper special with lump crabmeat was really good and it was nice to have steamed vegetables as a side. and the peanut butter pie is a great way to end the meal.

“Great Coconut Shrimp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We go to Naggs Head every year. We always eat at Miller's Waterfront Restaurant. The food is very good, the price is reasonable, and the people are friendly. I love the Coconut Shrimp, while my wife loves the popcorn shrimp.

“Great Service, Food was ok.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Sorry about the food review. I know going to a seafood restaurant and ordering steak is generally a problem. Two people in our group order steak and it was marginal. The seafood entrées were much better. My mistake in ordering the special of the day without asking if it was fried. It was and only "ok". Again my mistake. I don't want to go to a seafood restaurant at the beach to get fried seafood.

Service was top notched. We had two children (both age 2) and ordered their food as soon as possible to keep them happy. Their dinners came out with our drinks. Pleasantly surprised with the speed for them to do this. Anyone with young children will appreciate not having to suffer from a long wait for dinner.

PS. The hush puppies were very good!

“Wonderful place with wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

My husband I were looking to grab a quick meal the last night we were staying at the beach. We had looked on trip advisor for some places, but many of them were closed since we were there towards the off season. We then decided to stop at Millers since it got high reviews on Trip Advisor.

We had a wonderful experience. We unfortunately missed the sunset, but i imagine the view is wonderful. The drink menu is extensive and their Millers Killer Margarita was awesome! My husband had a Dark and Stormy which he was really happy with.

We had a very nice server, Mike who we got to chat with for a little while.

My husbands fried seafood platter was one of the best he's ever had and I had the filet with crabmeat special which was cooked to PERFECTION.

We highly recommend this place and it's great for a date night and families alike.
