I found this restaurant while looking for a hidden place to dine. When we pulled up we were starred at by other patrons. I'm assuming because we were african american.. we had several people look at us as we were getting out our car. So it started out to be uncomfortable. I wanted to continue the experience. The experience went... More

Few venues are quite as legendary as Baltimore County's Milton Inn. It's rather expensive but well worth it. The physical condition of this colonial building is much improved over the years. Renovations seem to be constant; indeed the charming building antedates our Revolution. Of course, it is the fare that makes this place so exceptional. The hit of my meal... More

The Milton Inn is housed in an old and historic building. It's warm and fuzzy. It reeks of the old school tradition of revolutionary era Baltimore. I don't know if that historical stuff is totally accurate, but perception is everything. Three of us went to the Inn on a recent Saturday afternoon. We were in the dining area to the... More

Excellent food, menu and presentation with attentive staff but beware prices are quite high. Fine if your budget can handle the cost, food is quite good and creative but have had similar quality meals elsewhere for lesser costs.

Great food and service, but this place is best for those who can order with abandon, with no regard for the price. Lovely place, but a bit rich for us.

The Milton Inn is a very high-end restaurant. I have been there several times, most recently for a Christmas gathering for our community volunteers. The food and service were first-rate. If you go, jacket and tie for gentlemen, appropriate dressy attire for ladies.

Great selections on the special brunch menu for Mother's Day. Table of 8 and the service was very good for a busy day and the restaurant was full. Choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meal choices and will definitely return. Nice historic atmosphere.

A lovely setting in a beautiful old structure. The rooms were decorated with festive Easter/spring decorations and the service was attentive. The food was good with lots of creative options for lunch. I had a soup I didn't care for (too spicy - my issue, not the restaurants), and an off-menu winter salad that was delicious and light. Almost everyone... More

The Milton Inn, a 273 year old field-stone building in Northern Baltimore County,is counted among Maryland's historic treasures. It is believed that construction of the Inn began in 1740 and it has grown and changed over the years to become one of the premier country dining spots in the United States. The tradition of excellence has continued to grow under the current ownership Milton Fare Inc, who purchased the business in 1997. Executive Chef/Owner Brian Boston was named Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Maryland in 2011.Chef Boston has also received many other awards including The Five Star Diamond Award by The Academy of Hospitality Sciences , The DiRoNA Award,and top ratings from Zagat. The Milton was named The Best restaurant in the Counties by The Baltimore Sun . Over the years , the Inn has engendered a legacy of romance and numerous couples have become engaged in its candlelit dining rooms and open air garden terrace. Many return year after year to celebrate!
