Real New England traditional dining

After returning home from many weeks of southern cooking and sun it was nice to return to old style New England traditional cooking. Four diners, four different menu choices and all prepared to perfection. The staff were extremely attentive and since I have a severe food allergy once informed... read more

Not sure how long this restaurant has been operating but it will definitely take you back in time. The menu offers standard fare with daily specials. Not really conducive to an intimate dinner but enjoy all the company around you.

The food here is your standard 'upscale' cuisine from the late 70s era. Scrod, Scampi, Shrimp Cocktail and Clams Casino. The food is very fresh and prepared well. It's very inexpensive. It also lacks much seasoning except for salt, pepper and maybe some chives here and there. If you went to a fancy "tavern" in the late 70s, then this... More

Visited the Milepost for dinner. Excellent! The seafood and steaks are always great. The scallops were some of the best I have had. Their homemade creamy poppy seed salad dressing is amazing. They have some nice draught beers and a nice selection of wines by the glass, and a full bar. It is an old building with lots of charm... More

This is our favorite local restaurant. We dined there on New Year's Eve and everything was outstanding. We were seated promptly, our server was excellent and the meal was superb. It was a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience and the live piano just added to the evening. Highly recommended!

While I loved the food we had, the one thing I will remember most about the Milepost are the Island Creek oysters we enjoyed for an appetizer. I decided to be brave and try the oysters since my previous experience eating oysters was less than enjoyable, but our friends said these oysters are local and would be delicious. Were they... More

My friend and I had lunch in the bar area of the restaurant. The atmosphere is very rustic and charming. My bleu burger was ordered medium rare and it arrived just that way, juicy and delicious. My friend had the cheese burger club. It was also just the way it was ordered. The french fries that accompanied the burgers were... More

Milepost has a beautiful location and a nice tavern feel on the inside. Informal seating friendly staff. Milepost has an extensive menu and a brunch menu on Sunday (the day we were there). Specials are written on a chalk board. We had an omelet and lobster salad that were great. This place appears to be popular with the locals. (A... More
