“More For The Senior Set”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

We decided to try Milestones for a quick dinner. Housed in a relatively nondescript building, it has a sizable free parking lot. We were seated immediately and given menus. The decor is definitely kitschy with attempted stabs at sophistication. The walls are paneled and there are decorative plates and aqua and white Christmas lights twinkling about. The chairs are upholstered and comfortable. The tables have small column vases in black or clear glass with fresh flowers, elegant but really don't blend with the rest of the decorations. Our waitress was a pleasant young woman named Gloria, Although it was her first day on the job, she had a good command of the menus and was efficient.

We were provided with a small loaf of warm bread with a garlic infused olive oil to dip.It was delightful. The menu was refreshingly small...not pages and pages. Entrees ranged from steaks to chicken seafood, port and sandwiches as well as appetizers. The wine list was small and uninspired. I had the chicken Hibernia which consisted of two tender chicken breasts in a sauce of Irish whiskey, scallions and bacon. While I am of the opinion that Irish whiskey improves just about anything, it was tasteless in the bland white sauce. The sauce was pebbled with crumbled bacon bits but overall was boring and pasty. The dish was accompanied with fresh green beans which would have been good if they weren't lukewarm in the middle and ice cold at the ends. It also came with one's choice of potato. I opted for the sweet potato fries. They were good although they did not compliment the dish. My companion opted for the Chicken Parm special. It was a generous size of chicken and angel hair pasta. He thought it was delicious and rated it a B plus. He had a scoop of ice cream for dessert while I tried the plain cheesecake. The cheesecake seemed to be like one of those frozen ones you get at Costco or Bjs...it even came with the paper slice dividers. It was described as plain but came with a cinnamon streusel topping. Not horrible but a disappointing slice of supermarket dessert. The wine by the glass tasted cheap and harsh.

The restaurant did a pretty brisk business, although I doubt there were many patrons under fifty. I am sure they enjoyed the lounge lizard sound track although I would have preferred something less assertive. The temperature became uncomfortably hot and it was stuffy, however the ceiling fans and air conditioning remained off.

If you happen to be in the Liberty area for an obligatory dinner with Grand dad, this might be an option...pleasant but dated atmosphere,very warm temperature, bland food and reasonable prices. However if you are a foodie or looking for sophisticated fun, go elsewhere.
