Ordinary oysters are ordinary no matter what you do with them.

Lovely private dining room in back of the bar but the food was not quite as wonderful as the atmosphere.

My date and I thought based on the menu prices this place would have knock-out service and superior food. It had neither. The Maryland Crab soup was way too salty but it had a nice amount of crab meat. The Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly to medium rare but was completely unseasoned. The Bearnaise sauce could have come from a... More

I had a Groupon, for $65.00 and still spent $85.00. No strings attached, no questions asked. The Service was great, the food was Great, the Atmosphere was unique. The Creme Brulee was the only dissapointment, it lacked flavor, and did not have the velvet texture that I look for. We may return again, only for a special occasions, and with... More

We dined at the Milton Inn last week in celebration of our wedding anniversary. The food was fabulous and the service was great! Our waiter made sure we had a good experience. We loved our meals! (I especially enjoyed the Green Goddess salad). I would recommend dining here for a special occasion .

I very much enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was great but I was not impressed with the meal itself. Scallops were a perfect texture, but very bland needing basic seasoning. My lobster tail was overcooked and rubbery. For the price, I would have expected better and don't believe I will return.

Menu choices made it difficult to make a single selection. My wife settled on a lobster tail with "colossal" crab lumps - and they were. I had the rack of lamb special and it was an entire rack. Served with a delicious sauce. Ate about half, my wife and I shared the remainder for another dinner at home! Everything done... More

Today, we had a brunch for my father in law's retirement. The staff was very attentive and nice. We did not feel rushed. In fact we were there from 1130-3. Mimosas were great. My husband said the bloody Mary's were just okay. There were about 20 people in our group. Each course came out together and thw food was hot.... More

This was my first time at Milton and won't be the last. We were celebrating a graduation and were happy we chose the Milton. We enjoyed the lunch tasting menu- clams casino were very good. Kevin-our server was great. Very friendly and attentive. The building is a historical property and simply gorgeous. Couldn't have been nicer!
