Our office had our Christmas luncheon at the Milton Inn today. I live in the Baltimore area but had never been to this restaurant. I will tell you that this will not be my last visit. It is a quaint little restaurant, the rooms decorated tastefully and beautifully for the holidays. We had a wonderful server named Mark who was... More

If you're looking for ambiance and elegant - as well as character in a milieu, this is your place. Been there probably 20 x's and on only 1 occasion when the food was lukewarm did it disappoint. And that is with me holding this restaurant up as my "go to" for special occasions.

When the grown kids have their own plans for TG, my husband and I love it because we get to go to the Milton Inn. The TG Feast is as good as my own home cooking but I don’t have to cook it, wait on people and then clean up. So, I think the Feast is perfect! We know that... More

The proportions and quality of our food was very good. The only thing I didn't like the keeps me from giving it all 5's is that they have a... More

Our family enjoyed a great Thanksgiving meal at the Milton Inn. We were one of the first to be seated and service was excellent throughout the early afternoon. We had the traditional thanksgiving meal, Hudson Valley duck, and surf and turf. All were excellent and prepared to our full satisfaction. One of the meals was delayed because of a technical...

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
