“Sunset puts it above average”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

Husband and I ordered the tuna special with advocado and pineapple topping. He ordered his blackened (cost $2 extra). I just didn't find topping flavors come together well. Perhaps needed to marinate longer together. Waitress was attentive prior to arrival of food. We did arrive in time for sunset. This was best part in spite of no outdoor seating. There is outdoor deck to wait for seating with live music. Music was really good (Billy Joel type music). Loud environment due to large groups and squealing children. But not too many restaurants with intimate environment in OBX.

“Good food, long wait ”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Pros- good food, complimentary hush puppies (very yummy but sweet- tasted like a donut but I liked that!), family friendly, waitress was nice and accommodating, there was sugar scrub in the bathroom! :D
What we ordered- crabs legs- delicious to me but salty, baked potato- small and dry, fried trout- plain, but what do you expect for fried trout?, mixed veggies- very fresh, fries- looked boring, probably frozen.
Cons- waited over an hour even though the hostess said 45 mins (we got there at 8pm), seating outside is very limited, temp is all over the place (hot in some spots, freezing in others- bring a sweater), tarter sauce and cocktail sauce containers were so dirty with dried up sauce all over the tops/caps.
Overall i'd return- expecting to sit inside, bringing a sweater, expecting to wait at least an hour, and maybe not order potato products.

“Great place!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Everything about this place was great! We went before 5 and got the 20% early bird discount. The service was great and so was all of the food. The portions were large and delicious. Definitely fresh!

“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We visited Miller's as a large family group. Seating for 11 took awhile (~1 hr), but that was understandable as there were many large groups at the peak of dinner. Great views of the Sound at sunset and wonderful food made the wait worth it. The complimentary hush puppies were great and everyone enjoyed their meals.

Our server, Lucas, was fantastic. He had multiple large tables and did a great job of recommending dishes and checking on us.
