When I think of Milton's I think of the amazing bread that you get at the grocery store. Dining at Milton's, well they fell short, service was bad, it took forever to hunt down our server to get our check. Food was diner food, nothing to write home about, hollandaise sauce was terrible, like the Knorr packet that one can... More

There aren't too many places in San Diego to find good deli. Thank goodness for Milton's! Great location! It's right down the street from the Del Mar race track, the beach, and next to wonderful shops in Flower Hill mall. My test for good deli is matzo ball soup and chopped liver. Both scored top points for flavor and portions.... More

We hadn't been to Milton's in a longtime and recently ordered meat platters from them for a group coming to our home.. The meat was excellent and much better than we remembred. The side salads were very good too. We will be going back more often.

Stopped in for a quick sandwich. Turned out the sandwich needed to come from the kitchen versus the deli in front, which meant it took 15 minutes. I paid $20.20 for a roast beef sandwich, soft drink and two cookies (the cookies portion was $1.39). Good sandwich but glad I didn't need to buy two sandwiches.

We were staying at a hotel near the Del Mar location and got our orders to go. The ability to order breakfast all day long was appealing to our kids. The sandwiches are huge with the meat being a couple of inches thick on the reuben. They had everything packed up for travel and were great about giving me serviceware... More

I decided to try out Milton's one more time. I now remember why it's taken me years to return. For 2 half sandwiches and 2 cup of soup, it was $50.00! Who pays that price for soup and sandwich??? The service was lack luster, the server never checked on us after he brought the food out. For a delicatessen, save... More

Very busy restaurant no matter what time of day. Very large portions for every entree, service is great. I have had a ton of business breakfasts and lunches there, it's a popular place for that.
