Wonderful view right on the river over looking the marina. Food was good and large portions . Lobster Bisque was very tasty. Lobster Mac & Cheese was a big hit at our table. Portion size was large enough for two people

Mile marker one does serve good quality food that is worth waiting for. Wait we did. Perhaps the service has improved since I was there. I would like to return to try the food again as the server was pleasant and the view pleasant.
