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

This was our second visit to what has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent, the service friendly and prompt, and the building has wonderful historic charm. This was a lunch visit during restaurant week. $20.14 for a 3 course price fixe meal. The food was excellent. We had Ostrich Carpaccio and the marinated beet salad for... 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

My husband and I went to the Milton Inn for the first time on a date. It is an older building and a bit too darkly lit, but had plenty of historic charm. We had a reservation and arrived on time. The staff was very nice, and we were seated promptly. I did notice that the wait staff/water servers were... More

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
