This 1770's stone inn has incredible personality and ambiance. There's a fireplace in every room, wooden floors which are a bit uneven due to the age of the building, which all adds to the ambiance. We go there for our anniversary, knowing the food is spectacular which is worth the price. They also offer a fixed price dinner which is... More

This Butler stone large house, formerly John Milton's Academy, built in 1740, is a fabulous restaurant and beautiful building for every visitor and diner to enjoy. The horse motif, due to location in steeplechase country, is most charming. Waitstaff is well-schooled and welcoming. If dinner is too expensive for you, go for lunch, which is available every day of the... More

It had been a long time since I had been to Milton Inn and I expected the perfection I found in the past. Service, ambiance and my son's meal all measured up. The disappointment came from my meal. The duck was beautifully presented, but it was sliced so thin there was no taste. I know they would have exchanged it,... More

The reservation process was easy. Service was excellent and we were frequently checked on for beverage refills and our enjoyment of the meal. My partner's meal was very... More

The food and service is top notch. We arrived at 6:30 on a Friday night with reservations. We started off with a couple of drinks and ordered Venison Pate and a Winter Salad. A perfect start to a wonderful evening. Main meal was Rock Fish and a Filet Chesapeake. Both meals were cooked to perfection. We ended the evening with... More
