Entrees were very good-snapper and tuna- but we were seated in a huge area that was mostly empty- outside seating was available but not offered-suggested wine was mediocre- we had the feeling the place was designed for huge groups and we were there on an off night- no ambiance at all

Typically, you need to give a little on the food side if you are getting something in the way of waterside atmosphere. Well, Milliken's Reef is not an exception. The food is okay but the atmosphere is very enjoyable, especially for a large group. If you are out at the port, you may as well hit this place as any...... More

We were visiting from out of town on Thanksgiving day. I expect a place like this to be busy and problems to happen. The catastrophe that unfolded tonight made my father-in-law quip to the manager "I've traveled all over the country - good luck staying in business". We arrived at 7PM (our reservation time) with our party of 9 to... More

Menu, bar, location, scenery. Love to watch the cruise ships passing by so close. Honestly, love the senior special, never ordered off that menu before. The scallops are to die for. $14.00!

My husband and I ate here on a Sunday night in the dining room. The food was very good (grouper and steak) and the Hushpuppies were YUM! The staff was helpful and friendly. My only complaint was the live band in the outdoor bar/patio. Everytime someone opened the door to outside (like ever minute), the loud music would blast into... More

We just got into town and decided to try another sea food restaurant that line this popular sea food restaurant strip. Milliken's Reef is the last restaurant on the stip. First impression... it had a very relaxed atmosphere and had a great rock and... More

Very good food and atmosphere. Outide eating was casual. Inside offered entertainment for dinning. Prices were what I expected (around $25).
