Good place to eat

The menu is very good. They always have a great selection of specials. The drinks and wines are generous. A very quaint atmosphere. There is outdoor dinning also.

My friend and I went to Rainbow Gardens for her Birthday , Food and service were amazing , it was a little pricey but worth it for the amount and quality, several small rooms for dinning , turned out great since one room had two tables with 6 , we were able to eat in a room that was quieter

So much to see in the wonderfully decorated Restuarant. The food is wonderful with unique choices. One of my favorite places for lunch or dinner.

We ate there recently for dinner. It was not crowded and thus the noise level was low making it easy to talk and visit. We shared the bread basket which was filled with muffins, sweet bread, savory scones. The breads were all very good but after eating some of it I wasn't so hungry for dinner. I would have preferred... More

We had a lovely lunch here. Food and blueberry margaritas were great. Service wasn't the best though.

Located in a big old Victorian house with a wrap around porch in downtown Milford, Rainbow Gardens is a unique restaurant. The restaurant also has a gift shop/ candy shop on premises. They have some unique menu offerings, terrific salads, sandwiches and excellent desserts. They have some of the most incredible cakes I have ever tasted and the servings are... More

A very nice restuarant in downtown Milford. The food was different and very good. The atmosphere was great. We sat in the bar area and the ambiance was light and airy. Our server was pleasant and cheery. This was the first time we have been in this restaurant. It is a lot bigger on the inside than it appears from... More

We have never been disappointed with anything at the Rainbow Garden. The service is attentive, the surroundings, clean and well cared for. The food fresh, beautiful and delicious as you can see my salad and my husband's was a shrimp Asian salad. The raspberry ice tea refreshing and the turtle cheesecake scrupulous. The serving are always large. Always a treat!
