The view and ambiance is always great at the Marker. Service was good We had drinks and mussels which are always the best there. The only complaint is that they were tiny. Maybe it’s due to the time of year? I have to say I had sticker shock at the bill. It was really high for what we had.

We were celebrating our son’s high school graduation. We asked to sit outside. The view, food and service was fantastic. We had so much fun. The staff was on top of their game. We didn’t have to ask for help as waiter and the rest of staff brought drinks and appetizers and food at just the right time. We had so much fun. The food was perfect. We would definitely come back and recommend to anyone looking for a really good meal with a beautiful view.

Full disclosure, we have been big fans of MM1 for a few years. Post pandemic, some restaurants are struggling to get back to quality of service and food they had before. MM1 is WAY ahead of the curve. Food was perfect as always and our server was spot on, attentive, and took great care of our party of six with ease. Can't wait to go back!

Located at the Cape Ann's Marina Resort in Gloucester MA, Mile Marker One is
Waterfront Dockside indoor and outdoor dining with a casual but energetic vibe.
The food is surprisingly good for this type of venue. My wife ordered sautéed scallops and I had the Lobster Mac & cheese and both were excellent choices. If you are looking for a casual but quality dining experience MM One fits the bill.

They didn’t have lobster or tuna. Which was 3 or 4 dishes on their menu. Outside seating was clearly available even if it would have been a 15 minute wait. But we were insisted to sit inside on the edge of the dining room. Make the customer happy with their experience especially now that things are at full capacity. Also have the waiter or waitress tell customers that you are out of a certain type of food before they look at the menus for 30minutes and order apps.

I’m hoping the reasons for a not great experience is early season/emerging from COVID. Our waitress was terrific but the alcohol is nonexistent in their mixed drinks and one person in our party ordered the Caesar salad which looked beautiful but was not rinsed even a little. The lettuce was covered in dirt. They are admittedly understaffed (the bar wasn’t even open) so hoping it gets better as the season goes on. We have been coming to MM1 for years and hope to continue to. PS the dock master needs to take his attitude down about ten notches. Bring back the friendly kids who were always a pleasure to deal with!

Outstanding as always! Felicia was wonderful as was the trainee Catherine. Service was prompt, and thanks to a small error, our table ended up with 6 dozen oysters (3 dozen charbroiled, which we did not order, followed by the 3 dozen raw we wanted). It was a delicious mistake. Food runners, bussers, and managers all made the experience one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. Thank you all!

We were looking for someplace new to have lunch with old friends and found Mile Marker One in Cape Ann’s Marina Resort. We all agreed that the food was very good and the portions were generous. The delicious fried scallop platter and the fried haddock platter were served with fries and coleslaw which had just the right amount of sweet. One of us enjoyed a tuna Niçoise salad sandwich and the other had charbroiled oysters and then sautéed mussels. There is also a bar menu with a good amount of choices. I would recommend it.

We were a party of six and everyone was very pleased with the experience. The food was great and we loved dining in the igloo. We had a view of the water and thoroughly enjoyed the privacy of the igloo. Would definitely do it again.

Came for breakfast with 5 of us.?Everything was amazing, terrific server Samantha. Very quick service, quick to fill coffee or water. Two of the breakfast: oatmeal and French toast were wonderful. But 3 of us ordered the sweet potato/Brussels sprout hash. Based on lots of experience with hash, usually almost shredded, much smaller pieces. This was like a side dish. The poached eggs were over cooked, love when the yolk breaks over the hash. But actually was the most disappointing was two of our English muffins were hardly toasted..not warm.came buttered so I didn’t feel comfortable asking to be toasted again. Again service was outstanding and that will bring me back, hope the attention to at least toasting the toast is fixed.

We enjoyed a fantastic Mother's Day breakfast in the igloos overlooking the water. Everything was perfect. The igloo was beautifully decorated with matching painted chairs and door. My children thought it was so fun to have our own cozy space, and we felt safe as far as exposure to extra people.
The short stack of pancakes were a great choice for my kids. My husband and I are vegetarian, and the server was very helpful in substituting spinach for ham in the eggs Benedict, and fruit over sausage for my husband's omelet. The coffee was smooth and strong. The manager and staff were super friendly and welcoming.

This was our first time at Mile Marker One, and we look forward to returning.

Our server Deangelo was wonderful. Attentive and friendly! Our meal was delicious. My only complaint would be regarding the $30 reservation fee. I think the fee should be deducted from the overall bill. Or at the very least reduced. I understand the need upon booking due to risk of no shows or last minute cancellation. But with a bill of $280, the reservation fee should be reconsidered. I would recommend the igloos to a friend as a result.

The igloo was great. It was cozy and we enjoyed it very much. The food was amazing and delicious. The only thing I wish was different was the group that was in the igloo next to us was extremely loud and I could barely hear the person sitting across the table from me.

The food was totally unseasoned, which wasn’t the worst part of our evening. The service was awful, to the point that the server delivered my daughter’s birthday dessert while both appetizer and entree dishes were still on the table. When I asked her to clear them away, she told me to stack them on the empty chair at table. We then discovered that the birthday candle she put into the dessert was used- gross even in non-Covid times. Oh, and she was training a new employee. We won’t be back.

Great night at Mile Marker One. I almost wish we didn't sit in an igloo, but we had a great, private experience by doing so as well as a beautiful view. We really didn't need to go inside for anything. I am not sure the $30 fee was necessary for it, but we were happy with the privacy it provided. Food remained hot and drinks were good! Dessert was yummy as well.
