Fabulous dinner. Best she crab soup. The hush puppies are super good. Flounder and crab cakes were perfection. Great key lime pie. Kate was a delightful server and we enjoyed talking with her. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Our new favorite bar spot on the Outer Banks! We came under the recommendation of a friend since they have added an upstairs bar in spring 2016. (note: we have not eaten in their downstairs dining room). We came mid-afternoon twice during our week stay in August, and both times we were practically the only ones up there until about... More

The view is spectacular. You an see the sunset over the sound all around the restaurant. Complimentary hush puppies which is always a plus. Other then that it is a food factory that Chruns out plate after plate of chewy tasteless seafood. Burger seemed to be thawed from frozen. Tilefish had a overly fishey smell. Didn't seem fresh. Expensive for... More

My daughter and I TOTALLY enjoyed our trip to Miller's! Our server, Ania, was most helpful in making suggestions and tended to us diligently despite the packed restaurant! She even humored me when I HAD to ask where she was from originally! (Poland!) While the prices were not "cheap" by any means, they were well below many other restaurants in... More

My wife and I, with our one year son, ate Miller’s on August 18, 2016. We were joined by my in-laws for a late lunch around 1PM. We got a good table with views of the Albemarle Sound. I got a combo basket with fried Shrimp and Oysters. My wife got just a fried Oyster basket. Both baskets came with... More

Food is good yet a bit on high side and not quite as creative or mouthwatering as some other obx restaurants in similar price range. However, I consistently return when I am in obx cause food never sub par and ambiance/view on outside deck and walking the pier over sound is what memories are made of 😀

We had a rather large group for dinner. 6 Adults and 4 Kids and they were able to accommodate us without a problem. The food was wonderful and the seafood fresh! There was areas for our young kids to run when they became antsy. Service, food and atmosphere was top notch! Definitely put this on the top of your list... More

Second year in a row we have visited this restaurant. The wait of half an hour gave plenty of time to visit the outdoor seating and watch the sound while having a drink. The hush puppies are a great bread basket! Calamari is well treated and not chewy. Everyone at the table had a fish specialty and wiped the plate... More

Miller's is consistently one of our best meals out when vacationing in the Outer Banks. Great food and service; wonderful addition with the upstairs bar this year. At our most recent visit (8.10), our server Hristina was very attentive. We ordered a variety of items (fried, broiled, special diet with my son who has a peanut allergy) which all arrived... More

We ate here one night! The place was packed! We have learned to go a little early so we were seated right away. The service was excellent. The food was even better! I had a simple crab cake sandwich and it was GREAT! My wife and son had the Surf and Turf and both said it was one of the... 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.
