Awesome food! Filet mignonette topped with crabmeat is to die for! Ribeye was skinny and tough. Crab cakes, delicious. Outdoor view on the water is beautiful!

Our wonderful hosts at The Jefferson House (lovely Bed and Breakfast) helped us with reservations to Mariner’s for a Friday evening and we were so pleased. The location is beautiful, and if you can time your reservations to sunset, would be truly spectacular. Despite that,...More
