My fiancé took me to dinner at Ship Lantern for my birthday. I had not been to Ship Lantern Inn in over 25 years. I must say, that after all of these years it is still an excellent restaurant. We have not had such dedicated service in a long time. Food was excellent. We chose the chateaubriand for two and... More

My cousins came in from California and we wanted to show them that even Milton (a small country town) has great restaurants. The Ship has fantastic food along with elegant service. They treat you as if you are the only ones in the restaurant. A little pricey but worth ever penny.

Wonderful menu with excellent service. The decor was cozy and would be perfect for a lovely Fall dinner.

My husband and I came here last night to celebrate our anniversary after other plans fell through. By the end of the evening we both agreed we were glad we got to go here instead! We could not recall a better meal, and left happy and satisfied. Not much to add to the comments of others regarding the high quality... More

Shocked. Don't judge by the outside of this place. Looks crazy old school and dicey but the food was delicious and refined. Staff are older charming men who work hard to make their customers happy and really help to create a warm and fun energy in this place. The ambiance has a family dinner feel but the food is super...

I had not Been back to this restaurant , for a number of years, after a very disappointing New Yeras Eve, dinner with friends. I am so glad my friends advised me to try it again. I went to their twilight dinner on Friday. Between 4 and 6 pm . We sat outside on the patio near a delightful waterfall.... More

It was a beautiful evening to eat outdoors. The service was friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious and the presentation was lovely. Would definitely go back.

Enjoyed dinner with friend at SLI after not having dined here for about 20 years. They're definitely doing something right to still be around, and the food was good, but it might not be for everyone. They are known for excellent service, and this was still the case. Waiters all had excellent knowledge of the menu and were able to... More

This was our second time at this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is a throw back to the days when waiters wore suits, spoke intelligently, and presented themselves and the food with utmost dignity; all of the above applies here. The restaurant has been around for well over 55 years, and so have some of the waiters--really--I... More
