The Mill Wharf Restaurant is located on the site of the original mill, offering a gorgeous panoramic view from every side. At The Mill Wharf, you can catch a glimpse of the continual movement of fishing boats and pleasure craft in and out of the harbor, passing by the lighthouse and through the open waters of the Atlantic.

On a nice, warm summer day, you can dine on the deck while indulging in The Mill Wharf’s delicious seafood specials, including the raw bar which is set up for your choice of appetizers to accompany cocktails or your favorite beverage.

If opting to dine inside, you can view historic artifacts and antiques contrast with contemporary architecture and cathedral ceilings. The Mill Wharf can hold around 200 seats with an additional 100 on the deck.

Check out some of my favorite dishes and drinks that you can enjoy at The Mill Wharf this Spring and Summer season!
