Seafood
Mile Marker One waterfront restaurant offers four season indoor dining and igloo dining on the marina with stunning views of fishing boats, some you'll recognize from television. We offer the freshest seafood, locally sourced direct from fishermen. The grass fed beef is amazing and you're never going to leave our restaurant hungry. We have fresh local clams, fresh local lobster, hake, halibut, and a stunning lobster grilled cheese sandwich with sage butter. We're about friends, family, fun and we even have music some Wednesdays. Local bartenders are always coming up with new drinks like our signature "Purple Rain." We host the Blue Fin Blowout each year in July.

    After making a note about one person in the party being vegan when making the online reservation, I was disappointed last night to learn that they are no longer offering the one vegan dish they had previously served. When asked if they could offer another vegan dish, they agreed and served me a plate of plain pasta shells with oil and sliced cherry tomatoes, sprinkled with garlic. No tomato sauce, no greens or anything else, just plain pasta and cherry tomatoes, despite that other dishes on their menu offered a variety of grains, vegetables and so forth. I appreciate that they were willing to do that because I was hungry and my partner was already eating their meal, but it was disappointing to say the least. Will not be returning. The wait staff was better than great, but accommodations for vegans were not good. Pros: Wait staff was polite and helpful, scenic views Cons; orders not taken until 35 minutes after the start of reservation, no vegan options on menu anymore, website not updated to reflect that.

    As always, the food, the great service, the beautiful ambiance, and the very supportive staff makes this location and A+ always for dining excellence. They have grass-fed burgers. They have fresh fish. And they have tasty vegetarian and gluten-free options for those of us on a sensitive diet. I highly recommend this location and love going there often.

    Beautiful restaurant overlooking Cape Ann Marina and the Annisquam River. We had the broccoli and cauliflower apps. Both were delicious. I had the fish tacos. Very good and messy. Maybe a bit too much sauce. The rest of our party had Cesar Salad with steak tips and Fish & Chips. Both said there meals were also very good. Service was attentive. We ate inside, it was a little tight in there, but our table was perfectly situated to watch the boats on the river. The key lime was a bit different than a traditional one, however it was great.

    Service was a bit slow in the beginning due to it being very busy, but once we got going the service was very attentive. Two separate people came round ask us about our meal, which was appreciated. The food was plentiful and delicious! Only complaint was that the calamari was under seasoned. We sat in the section with the big windows looking over the water, and it was gorgeous. Noise level was very low considering how busy it was. They accommodated an extra person in our party very last minute. Overall a really great experience!

    For Mothers’s Day brunch I brought my Mom and daughter and we were extremely disappointed with the food and especially the service. I ordered the fish tacos while my Mom ordered the haddock Ruben. There were four small fish tacos all of which were completely covered with spicy slaw. The piece of fish under each pile of slaw was tiny. Essentially the were “slaw tacos”. The giant pile of slaw left on my plate when I was finished took up half of the plate. The same with my Mom’s sandwich. There was so much sauerkraut and spicy slaw but just a tiny bit of haddock. My daughter ordered the lobster roll and that was a decent portion (but maybe just needed more mayonnaise). Our server, a young lady, had zero personality, and seemed disgusted she had to work. No greeting from her when we sat down. We ordered mimosas and she spilled them on the table and on my daughter’s lap. I can’t remember the last time I dined out and had a completely rude server. There is zero reason for us to ever return to this restaurant when there are so many wonderful ones in the area.

    We got 2 Bloody Maria’s and 1 Bloody Mary, the Bloody Mary was good but the Maria’s were disgusting. They were thin and watery and gross. We ordered 4 meals, 2/4 were good. The corned beef hash is simply just not corned beef hash, it was cubed corned beef and cubed potatoes, somehow the poached eggs were dry and looked like raisins. The steak and eggs were smothered in some weird sweet sauce, I definitely wouldnt have ordered had I known- it wasn’t stated anywhere. They forgot the toast that came with the meal and acted weird when we said we would like the toast it came with. Overall, 0/10. We should’ve assumed it was bad when the restaurant was nearly empty on the Saturday before Mother’s Day.
