My wife and I decided to give the Inn another shot because of expense. It's a nice place to celebrate something special however but too expensive to do it often. We went to the bar and it was there first night for a small plate menu. If you ever meant me you would know I am not a small plate... More

I don't mind paying for a good meal if it's worth it. This meal is expensive, but it was oh so worth it. Wonderful lamb chops! Also, the pate and the autumn salad were amazing. Mark, our server, did a superb job of detailing all the dishes and providing prompt service.

This is a splurge because it's expensive and special, but it's worth it from time to time. We visit Hunt Valley and love to travel out York Road to dine at Milton Inn. Great food, good wine, and this time friendly service. Steak and Crab Cake was delicious. Adding a dessert after soup, salad, sides, and main course is almost... More

I took my future wife there last night and it was awesome. The staff was very friendly and our waitress did a fantastic job. The ambiance was perfect. Lights were dimmed just right and made it seem as she and I were the only ones there. My lady took a picture of her food of which was great. The staff... More

What a wonderful lunch at Milton Inn. They have a fixed price meal for $25. You get an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. It's incredible. The lobster mac and cheese was absolutely decadent. The blackened catfish etouffee was rich and delicious. It was my aunt's 90th birthday and her dessert plate was piped "Happy 90th Birthday" in chocolate. Wonderful service by... More

We love the Inn, and Chef Boston has outdone himself again with a wonderful menu (we had the veal and seafood penne). Both were perfectly seasoned, with great taste, and plentiful! Ostrich Carpaccio served as a new appetizer that was excellent. I applaud the fact that unlike other restaurants during RW, the Chef here continues with food from the regular... More

We've been here several times and will go back again. We always ask for seating in the back dining room because it's more romantic and cozy. The service is good, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Give it a try.

In an historic building on York Road in Spark, MD is one of the best restaurants in Baltimore County. We dined there during Restaurant Week, allowing us to sample the menu at a reduced price. The food was superb. There was no decrease in either quality or portion size for the Restaurant Week diners. The food was truly spectacular and... More

It has been years since I last enjoyed dinner at The Milton Inn - a rustic historical setting easy to get to on York Road with ample parking. The meal was exquisite. The service exemplary. All in all still one of my few favorite restaurants in Baltimore. Highly recommend to anyone wishing a 5 star meal which leads to wonderful... More
