We used to really like this place, but on this year's vacation dinner trip there we were disappointed. Unfortunately we took guests with us, too. The food wasn't good, the service slow, the place not so clean. Maybe it's all about the bands and Tiki Bar these days, but we'll be going elsewhere for nice dinners out.

At the beach so took a chance on this place for dinner. What a mistake. Waited 30 mins for a table then after our order was taken waited a further 45 mins for food. Asked for steak well done it was bloody so sent it back. They brought it back it was still pink, sent it back again. Steak returned... More

This restaurant has a great menu. The food quality is good as well as the service. The view of the water is very nice. You can sit on the patio if the weather is good. We are taking the family there for Mothers Day.

Went with mom and my friend who was visiting. Loved the atmosphere. Really large and was crowded but we were seated very quickly when they saw my mom was disabled which I thought was really very nice. Had a fabulous waitress (unfortunately forgot her name 😶). Appetizers were great and my main course was delish. Got a table by the... More

Had a great dinner here. Surf and turf was good, crab cakes were great and staff were even better. We stayed downstairs where it was a bit quieter. Seated by window and watched dolphins frolicking in the waterway. Salmon was really great too.

We have a neighborhood group that does Friday night dinners once a month and had reservations for 10 people. The hostess was very cordial and we were seated in a timely matter. Our waiter seemed competent and friendly in taking our orders. My wife started with Oysters Rockefeller and said they were very good. I started with the coconut shrimp.... More

Awful. Our waitress was lovely BUT. The place was loud and overpriced. My husband's streak was small, cold and had fake grill marks. The escargot appetizer was OK but certainly not great. Our waitress suggested I not order the red snapper. Said the previous people at our table didn't like it and sent it back! My grouper was inedible. It... More

We always make sure we go to Millikens at least once while we are here. It is still one of the more pleasant places to spend an evening in all of the Cape area. The food is always good and the service was wonderful. We both had fish, grouper and sea bass and ended with their wonderful key lime pie.

The view from the dinning room was nice. However, that was the only thing that was nice. My husband ordered Stemmed Shrimp and 30 minutes later received Boiled Shrimp. I ordered a hamburger and fries. The fries were hot and tasty; however, I would advise against the Milliken's burger. When I finally got the waitress to come to the table... More
