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.

“Jack, give me a call back on my cell to let me know we’re all set.”
That voice mail on my cell is commonplace a couple of days before just about every holiday at Mariner’s. There’s no need for him to leave his name because the raspy, gruff, yet warm and congenial voice is instantly recognizable. As always, I call back and confirm the reservation. It never is a problem because his family always comes early before the rush.Someday, I’ll miss hearing that call. And someday, Madison will miss him as well. more >
