Milton's has an extensive menu with Deli items and full course meals. A half sandwich costs $11 and is more than ample. They have a full deli counter for take out items. The servers have been there a long time and are very competent.

Had dinner with friends. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our waiter, Gustavo was terrific. The food was so,so. Cabbage soup was Luke warm. Mushroom barely soup was mostly salt. It was sent back. The pea soup,replacement was good and hot. My Milton salad was ok, but nothing special. The rib dish was very good. We were seated where we... More

Went with 5 adults and 4 children.Got a table big enough for all of us . We were relatively early for dinner and the service was superior. Food was ample and deli delicious. Only problem was the bakery display in front which made the kids drool and ask for more treats to take home. Great place!

We went to Milton's on Christmas night because it was one of the few restaurants open. It has limited gluten free options available, but we were able to get something to eat. The service was friendly and willing to work with us.

I have had lunch and dinner there several times recently. The sandwiches are wonderful along with fine service. It is a lively, fun place with a well stocked take out counter.

We have eaten at Milton's a number of times while staying in Solana Beach. Our visit last night was par for the course. While nothing at Milton's is bad, nothing really stands out either. The pastrami is always okay, but never as good or as plentiful as NY/Chicago delis I have been to. The service is decent, but the prices... More

Staying at the Hilton, Del Mar, my friends & I wanted some N.Y. type deli for lunch. Luckily, nearby was Milton's, a full service restaurant & deli right out of the Manhattan play book. We ate (more like pigged out) and left full and satisfied. I can't eat like this often, but if you are from back east like I... More
