Mile Marker One Under GM Patrick Hurd and Chef Wheels Is Firing On All Cylinders


You know when you go to a seasonal type place and it’s a mish mosh of thrown together servers and it’s just a bunch of predictable greasy fried food?  Not at Mile Marker One.  Not under the expertly trained staff of Patrick Hurd and Chef Wheels.

Dinner was on point!  Hats off to the staff that could rest on it’s location alone but goes above and beyond with inventive dishes, expertly prepared and an excellent staff that is efficient and super friendly.
