Milner's consistently serves excellent food. The service is professional and prompt. Although the prices are high, we eat at Milner's often, because Milner's always is great.

The menu offers many unique options. My husband and I dined here with friends and we all enjoyed our dishes. Our waitress, Alex, was a gem. She was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

If you are looking for authentic Southern food, Milner's is the place for you. I love everything on the menu, but the collard greens, pork and mac and cheese are phenomenal. I enjoy sitting in the bar area to watch sports on the TVs. If...More
