My Husband and I went to the Milton Inn for a date night and it was perfect! The dim lighting and candlelight was so romantic and the food just matched the atmosphere.

A beautiful building with nice service, the establishment is WAY over priced and has one of the worst parking arrangements I have ever encountered! Despite the price, items on menu are small although well prepared

The Milton Inn continues to deliver one of the best fine dining experiences in all of Maryland. We dined there in December 2015 just before Christmas. Had the Sweet Breads, Maryland crab soup, Mojo Chicken, Rack of Lamb and Macadamia Nut Torte. Food was perfect. Service was impeccable. Atmosphere and Ambiance were amazing. It's the perfect fine dining combination.

Night out with friends, I had the best salmon of any restaurant I have been too. The service was impeccable and even though I would consider this a fine dinning experience it did not feel stuffy at all. The crab soup was perfect with real lumps of crabmeat.

The turn in to the restaurant can sneak up on you. The building is amazing each room even better. Large group with 1 server which meant not everything was very hot. The food was good some meals better than others but nothing blew my mind. I will say the bread was very good. Very attentive staff.
