We are always a little apprehensive when we can’t at least look at a restaurant’s menu online before we visit. I think this place does itself a bit of a disservice that they don’t at least have a basic website with a menu. We visited based on the other good TA reviews and rating. Fortunately we were able to review... More

Small restaurant with great food and very reasonable prices. Mussel appetizer was excellent with very tasty broth. Scallops Nantucket were fabulous -- scallops were fresh and sweet. Clearly the best food in Bethel. Service was friendly and prompt but not rushed.

The S.S.Milton offers little in the way of style or ambience but the staff are friendly and the food is ok. Just ok though. Definitely not best in town as suggested by the ratings on this esteemed site. After a week in New England, I finally gave in and ordered a lobster. Maybe I should have done so nearer the... More

This small reastaurant is on main street and does not look like much on the outside but wait until you go in. As you enter you are surrounded by antiques and bri-a bac for sale, the dining area is made up of small old fashion nicely furnished rooms or if there is a table available and the weather nice you...

Never, never, never a bad meal and wonderful service. The S.S. Milton should be over-flowing with customers, but the four times we've visited in two years, we've never had to wait for a table. Quiet atmosphere, and not the "pizzazz" that some might insist on, but we love the old home atmosphere. There is out-door seating. The wine list is... More

Well deserves its rating at number one in Bethel. The food here is superb! We had a lunch here; excellent clam chowder, superb sandwiches and really delightful blueberry ice-cream. We also had dinner here; salmon and lobster casserole. Everything was perfectly cooked, the size of portions was absolutely right for our European appetites, there is a good wine list, there... More

Nothing special. Owners want to retire, place for sale. Perhaps there are better places to eat. Don't really recommend.

Four of us went into an empty S. S. Milton on Monday, about 12:30. We wanted lobster rolls. We were pleased to have a choice--a 4 oz. roll for $12 and a 6 oz. Ciabatta roll for $17. We were even more pleased with the taste. They were not made from frozen knuckles, which are often used for rolls, but... More
