Dinner at the Milton Inn

We went to the Miton Inn because we had a groupon. The groupon could not be used for the restaurant week menu, (which was not mentioned on the coupon) so we had to pick from the main menu. I had Maryland crab soup and my wife had chilled watermelon gazpacho. The crab soup was full of crab... read more

Since The Milton Inn has been in business since 1740, a lot of people have eaten there. It is one of the most elegant restaurants in the area and a "go-to" for special occasions. My husband and a I went to the Milton Inn recently to try out their $12 small plates and were very impressed. What they do, they... More

We love eating here! Everything I've ever tried is delicious and I can't wait to go back. They also make great cocktails.

What a gem hidden on a windy county road in North Baltimore county. Tucked just off of York road, immediate appearances radiate old world charm in old renovated stone schoolhouse known to have James Wilkes-booth as a pupil. But the old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover" rings true again because as Old World as the dwelling is,... More

We arrived about 20 minutes early, but our table was ready. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. The portions were substantial. I would recommend Milton Inn to everyone.

As part of our year-long 50th wedding anniversary celebration we opted for dinner at The Milton Inn. We have enjoyed this fine restaurant for over 45 years, through various owners and chefs. On this visit Sharyl, own waitress, was pleasant and very helpful. For appetizers, I chose clams Casino while my husband selected the calamari with marinara sauce. We exchanged... More

The atmosphere is great! Walking through the door sets the tone for the evening. I was with a party of four and everyone was thrilled with everything we ordered. We started the evening with clams casino,and scallops.Both were excellent. My husband and I had the special which was a filet topped with crab. The only negative was the sauce that... More

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
