Interior looks more like a cute teahouse with antiques and art for sale. We sat on the deck for lunch and had good sandwiches. I ordered their blueberry margaritas, but it tasted like lime. The waitress took it back and doctored it up, but it still wasn't good. Waitress was very nice and friendly.

We went for lunch a few weeks ago and the staff didn't blink an eye for our party of six - four adults and two kids. The waitress let the kids have their own table, we all sat out on the deck on a beautiful afternoon. All the lunch entrees were great, salads and sandwiches, but the pies and brownie... More

Went to S S Milton with family including 3 children under 8. The staff were very friendly and were happy to answer all of our questions about the menu. This restaurant had a children's menu which many on our trip didn't have. I had a seafood bisque and lobster roll, both of which were delicious. I had pie for desert... More

We enjoyed a Maine seafood dish done perfectly while sitting on the porch on a beautiful evening. Service was very good, and the staff friendly. Price was quite reasonable.

We stopped in here just saw it and went in for lunch. We were the first there for lunch. Nice place inside. Decorated with art for sale on walls and it had china and things like that for sale as well but we were there to get a good lunch and it was a great choice. Service was very friendly.... More

Stopped by as friends who live local recommended this place. It was a nice night so we sat on the deck out front. I did notice the sign on the door that said "no cell phones" but I did smuggle my muted one in to take photos of our dinner. The amazingly pleasant servers brought us hot rolls and constantly...
