Ate dinner here in a group of six. We opted to sit outside and it was beautiful! Crab cake sandwich was perfection and the hush puppies were some of the best I have ever eaten. Nice selection at the bar, lots of beers to choose from. This was our second time eating here and I plan to go again next... More

Second trip to Miller's on the Water. I rate our last trip as fair, same as first trip. While my sister's meal was excellent and my wife's fried shrimp were very good, my meal of Miller's scallops was rather bland and my brother in law wasn't impressed with his meal either. Wait staff was lacking and not wine knowledgeable. I... More

We were impressed with the location, and the beauty of this restaurant. Our experience was not quite what we hoped for, given Millers elegant appearance. I ordered crab legs, which initially were very overcooked and rubbery. The server was very kind and immediately took them back. The second batch was excellent. My husband had some sort of tuna sandwich, which... More

While the view was pleasant, even on a cloudy day, I had a column in my prime view and th3 seafood was fair. I prefer... More

Ask to be seated on the upstairs or on the outside deck the views of the Crotan Sound and Roanoke Island are great. I ordered the Waterfront Signature salad which had Garden greens, sundried cranberries, goat cheese, chopped walnuts and fresh seasonal... More

Very nice dining with top notch seafood offerings! Waited upstairs in their new bar/food area until our table was ready. Went beck the next night just to this new addition to watch the sunset!@ You can get food there as well may be a nice alternative to overcrowding room below during peak season. Great staff very clean.

This is your run of the mill, large tourist seafood restaurant. But the service was friendly and the back deck was canine friendly! Huge bonus. And the view of the sunset was awesome. We stayed after dinner and ordered beer (they had some local ones on tap) and sat at the tables they put out by the water (no food... More

Overlooking the beautiful Roanoke Sound, Miller's Waterfront Restaurant has been family owned and operated since 1982. Offering lunch and dinner daily in the restaurant downstairs with early bird specials from 4:00-5:00 pm. New for 2016 is The Waterfront Sunset Bar located upstairs, above the original restaurant. The Waterfront is a more casual & relaxed atmosphere focusing on small plates and an unparalleled view of the water.
