Yelpers say this place has closed and the phone rings disconnected. Miss the great lobster roll and bisque.

We adored our lunch at Milton's. From the beautiful dishes on display (and many 'for sale') to the beautiful appointed dining room, our first moments were delightful. Our waitress even gracefully allowed us to move when we decided to eat on the porch. Perfect Maine porch! The floor slants a bit, tables and chairs off kilter a bit...but ah, the... More

Seafood restaurant with porch and inside seating. We ate lunch there. Service was less than good. The lobster rolls and crab cakes were acceptable but nothing special. Prices were a bit high for what we got.

We had a fantastic lunch. The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. The one problem I did find was that the restaurant was in the process of being sold. If you get the chance feast on the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.

A very reasonably priced restaurant with a children's menu and a good selection of entrees. We sat in the enclosed porch (very windy that day), but they also have a nice deck in the front of the restaurant or you can eat in the old house. The walls are covered with paintings or mirrors you can purchase and they also... More

Service was good enough, but the decor was cheap and the food virtually tasteless. After a longer-than-normal wait I had a pesto chicken-breast sandwich that did not have the slightest scent or flavor of basil or garlic. The chicken was apparently processed, and it was served on what was essentially a hamburger bun with a couple of sesame seeds pasted... More

Had the nightly special on the porch very good. We started with the soup clam chowder. The service was all we could ask for. An enjoyable dinner experience. Good Blueberry pie.

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.
