Great food, we had lobster and halibut. We sat on the deck area where we could look at the water and boats. Staff was very friendly and helpful to learn other attractions in the area. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We got the deal of the day at Mile Marker One! The lobster roll was on special for $11.99 and it was excellent! Delicious coleslaw, too. Service was friendly and efficient.
