    What a find! Delicious food in a beautiful setting. Quality was top notch as was the service. You can tell people who work there care about the restaurant and it shines through. If you’re anywhere close, stop in and you won’t be disappointed.

    We have eaten at Mile Marker One for several years. The food and service and ambiance gets 5 stars. But the parking has gotten a little tighter. Last week all the guest spots were full and I had to park, sneakily, in employee parking. But the food and service are great.

    Had a very nice dinner overlooking the water. The green bean salad was just OK. Not as flavorful as I expected and I thought it would be more of a salad. It's actually just green beans with the goat cheese. The tuna entree was excellent, as was our waiter. He was outstanding.

    Mile Marker One RestaurantResponded 5 days agoHi Marcia, glad to hear you has a nice dinner. We try our best to describe our dishes on the menu as they will be presented - GREEN BEANS, CHERRY TOMATOES & GOAT CHEESE tossed with extra virgin olive oil and toasted pine nuts. We hope to see you again soon!

    Our waitress Brynn (?) was wonderful…friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food was outstanding! I had one of my favorites on the menu ~ fresh burrata salad with steak tips ~ and my friend had the lobster mac and cheese. We also had the bang bang shrimp appetizer. All delicious! Sitting on the deck overlooking the water…perfect!

    Mile Marker never disappoints, gotta bring back the wings please. Food was outstanding, drinks on point, and the views are always top notch. We'll be back again in August. Do yourself a favor, if you've never gone to Mile Marker, make it a point to do a lunch or dinner, it's so worth it! Thank you...

    The setting is attractive — dine by the boats. We asked for a table but was told they were not available (though a few were empty). Here’s the problem: it took 45 minutes to get our food! I deliberately order soup, to come out first. It was served with my entree! The entree was a large bib salad with fried oysters and steak tips — the oysters were cold! There 4 items missing from menu (sold out). The food itself was very good (other than cold oysters) and the menu was creative. Receiving our food so late and all at once made for a very disappointing anniversary dinner!

    Everything about the experience other than the pricing was great! Went to the Boardwalk café on Hampton Beach NH the next day lobster roll was $12 cheaper and was packed twin lobsters were $55 cheaper I understand there is a markup but the Boardwalk Café was super reasonable the dishes were packed and I think the mile marker needs to reconsider their pricing!

    Mile Marker One RestaurantResponded on July 31, 2022So glad you enjoyed everything! - We just chatted with the great people at the Boardwalk Café - their rolls have two ounces less meat than ours. Also, we don't serve twin lobsters??? We proudly use the best and freshest ingredients available to us and price fairly & accordingly . Hope to see you again soon.

    The mile marker has had a significant upgrade over the past year or more. The food was good the server was very good and friendly and offered helpful advice. I think Tobin has done a fabulous job at the restaurant nice variety and good choices.

    A very pleasant dinner. The deck seating was delightful and definitely better than other areas where the noise level was quite high. The food (lobster roll and lobsert mac&cheese) was just right, and the wine was quite good. The prices weren't really surprising, but this is definitely not a budget outing.

    We had a lovely server. She was so good about checking in with us. Making recommendations and answering questions. She was very friendly with good energy. Since COVID we have noticed the lack of good service. This was so refreshing and made our night. The food is yummy. I highly recommend Mile Marker One.

    Perfect casual dining spot for good food while watching boats sail down the river on the outdoor covered deck. HUGE points for taking reservations!!! Sounds silly but lots of places don't take reservations and it just makes it less stressful for a night out with friends. Server was very attentive. Haddock was perfection and drinks were delish. BIG servings so no room for dessert....next time! We will be going back soon!!

    I was with a friend and we both had the mussels. They were excellent. It was a generous portion, with sweet sausage, fennel, garlic,lemon and a light cream sauce. Wait staff is always excellent and this time we dined inside and the ambience is always lovely.
