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

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

We recently celebrated our 26th anniversary here. We had passed by the inn while exploring the area and wanted to give it a try. Our favorite restaurant is of a similar type. 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.
