We've never been disappointed with Milton's. Always great deli sandwiches or salads with prompt, friendly service.

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.

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

I had the egg salad sandwich on fresh rye bread. I love egg salad and this was not disappointing. It had just enough added flavor to make it tasty but not too much additional ingredients to hide the flavor of the eggs.

Very good looking deli. Nice atmosphere, ample menu but food didn't taste good. My wife had to return her dish. Tasted funny.
