Mariner’s Menu, Patio Sunset, and Admiral’s Tenderloin

Welcome to Mariners!

Famous for Steaks!

When Bill and Betty Von Rutenberg opened The Mariner’s Inn in 1966, they set out to provide a steak and seafood dining experience like none other. Mouth watering, delicious steaks aged to perfection and an assortment of seafood from lobster to the famous Friday Fish Fry.

Bill and Betty’s sons, Bill, Jack, and Robert, along with their crew, now carry on the tradition of outstanding hospitality of von Rutenberg Ventures. Waterfront dining on the patio and a sunset over the marina make dinner at Mariner’s an evening to remember.

Here’s what Faith had to say about attending a Lobster Boil!

“Lobster Boil was a FABULOUS event!! The Staff were amazing! I cannot remember ever having a more upbeat, positive, friendly, and attentive wait staff in all of my years of dining experiences. The lobster was excellent! they were huge and fresh, flown in that day just for the event. The Caesar Salad was beautifully dressed with just the right amount of dressing. The corn on the cob truly melted in my mouth with the succulent sweetness of summer. Oh, and the Chardonnay was flowing throughout the evening, which was included in the price of the meal. We were a party of three, including my mother-in-law of 85, who had just flown in from CA. The wait staff offered to assist her with the shelling of the lobster, and were nothing but courteous and professional. We met some wonderful people who were sitting at our table, and were celebrating their 65th Anniversary. A great time was to be had by all!! An event not to be missed!! Oh, can’t forget my favorite dessert, the von Rutenburg Ventures homemade KEY LIME PIE!!! Yum! Jack, we will be back again!!!”
