The food at Miller's Waterfront was incredible but to top it off the service was impeccable. Our waiter Stephen was attentive and polite but also personable and funny. We really enjoyed him.

Excellent Food and Excellent Server- Katelyn S. Stop in for lunch with family, which included 4 kids and service was quick and the menu variety is great, especially if you are dealing with picky kids. Everything was hot and delish.

Sat upstairs in the open bar-simply stunning!! You’re almost overhanging the ocean with a nice breeze coming in and the sun warming your arms. Angie provides excellent service. The food was delicious-had buffalo shrimp and the crunchy fish. But the setting is beyond amazing!!🧡💗
