Booked an outside table expecting to see water. Never happened. Seated behind hostess station and next to kitchen. Was told I was “under the tent, therefore outside”walked around towards the actual open deck and there was a table open exactly the same size as we(4 of us) had been directed to originally. Manager said no, only 2 could sit there, outside with the views. So,evening got off to a sour start. So loud at our seated area, with heat and noise from kitchen to boot!
What a disappointment
The food was good, NOT great, service was warm and friendly, they try hard to help/ serve you
Would not eat here again. Not at all the evening we expected.

The deck at Mile Marker 1 used to be a casual, maybe sometimes a bit raucous “come as you are” dining experience that was uniquely Gloucester. Now it is a cheaper imitation of any other restaurant I could go to anywhere. The menu is pretentious and on the expensive side compared to the old Mile Marker. It’s hard to enjoy yourself when all of the joy has been taken out of the establishment. I won’t be back.

The staff was very friendly and the manager was quite engaging and obviously liked being there and interacting with the guests. The food was wonderful and so was the view.

The tuna ordered was partly fatty and tough. When you pay that much you expect a better quality piece of fish.

Efficient staff, golf cart ride from outer parking area was a nice addition. Table was ready upon arrival. Waitstaff attentive. Food was tasty, Loved having bobbing boats to view. Sat outside on deck, casual and easy. Music selection were fun but WAY to loud to have easy conversation. Overall a pleasant evening.

This local favorite just gets better and better. From the moment you arrive, whether by boat or by car, you are greeted by their superb staff ready to ensure that every aspect of your visit is terrific. Special notice to Maddie and Max at the dock, Jackie at the hostess station, Lilly on the bar and servers Sarah and Cam. The food has never been better! Five stars are not enough!

Felt a little rushed with dinner. Appetizers came out, we weren’t halfway through eating it when our meals came out. I’m guessing it was towards the end of the night and the kitchen wanted to clean up. Food was good. Would try it again.

Order anything; but the fried fish ( fried in a lot of batter & oil) I did not like it all. Deep fried fish & a mountain of French fries $24.. uhmm. Not worthy.
The location is very nice . On the water

Lovely night. We sat outside and the ambiance was great. The food and service were terrific. We love the whole cauliflower and Lobster Mac and Cheese. The oysters were a value for $3.00 each ( delicious). We will be back

The service was great! We’ve tried the lobster roll which it was delicious. Also tried the haddock ceviche which wasn’t the best I have had. They could do a little better than that. But overall I’ve had a great experience. Will be back for sure.

The “rare” tuna was overdone, and a manager came by at the end of the meal and shrugged it off. Scallops were sweet but a bit overdone, and the haddock was very good. We made our reservation well in advance, requesting a quiet table outside away from the bar. Instead we got an inside table in a very loud section right next to the bar. I think we’ll pass on this place in the future. The young woman who served us, by the way, was wonderful and hardworking.

Horrible experience. Desk clerk named “John” goes completely insane when we ask how to get our parking ticket validated. Eventually his manager takes care of it for us, and then John follows us, and only us to the parking lot hiding in the shadows like some creep. He starts harassing us in the parking lot, and then video tapes is as we return to the restaurant to complain to his manager. The manager tells John to go away, and she discusses John’s behavior with us. Meanwhile John is mouthing threatening gestures at my wife, while the manager tries to call her GM about John. We inform the manager that we’ll call the police if John isn’t sent back inside so we can leave. John then comes back out and follows us to our car. Patrick Hurd is the GM, and we will be contacting the Gloucester police about John’s behavior as well as the owners of the Restaurant and Marina. Unbelievable. Will never go there ever again.

Everything was great. The only thing we were disappointed about, was our fault. Our reservation was for four o’clock. They don’t serve dinner until four thirty. We wanted a meal. Like I said it was our fault. Our sandwiches were excellent.

I made the reservation and once the table was cleaned and reset we were seated right away.The waitress was absolutely fantastic,the food was perfect.I brought one of my old U.S. Navy shipmates/buddy there .He lives in Maryland and came up for a visit with his family in the Worcester area,while he was in Massachusetts he came to visit me ….first time in 30 years we seen each other.Well the waitress came over after we were done eating and told us that the couple next to us overheard my buddy telling her about our Navy days and she said they paid for our entire meal😊there’s still awesome people in this world. MM1 I highly recommend 👍👍👍👍
