The local food critic wrote that Milt's had the best fried chicken in town, so we decided to give it a try. We found the restaurant to be clean and comfortable, the service was very friendly, and lots of items on the menu sounded appealing. But, we both love good fried chicken, so that was what we ordered. What a... More

The service was quick and friendly. All our food was good with ample portions. My wife especially liked the rolls and my son loved the mashed potatoes. The cooking reminded me of home cooking.

Ate here twice; once for dinner and once for breakfast. Dinner: My club sandwich was edible, that's about all I can say. I've had many club sandwiches in my day and this was the most boring I can remember. Our waitress was very sweet. Nice gal. Breakfast: My omelette was very tasty but the gravy for my biscuit was watery.... More

My wife and I were there for breakfast on 8/12/16. She had the 2 eggs & sausage, while I had the Linguicia & eggs. Both were outstanding! We're from out of town, but this was our 3rd time to Milt's for breakfast this year. It is one of our favorite diner style restaurants. The food is consistently outstanding, and the... More

This classic cafe has been around for quite a while. It's a piece of the rapidly disappearing coffee shop in America. You can REALLY have it your way in this cool place with diverse, health fixins.

We are regulars at this hometown favorite. The food and service is always great. I was craving their Friday Night Fish n Chips special and my guy ordered their deep pit Beef dinner. Both were delicious as always. This restaurant is family friendly and their menu offers something for everyone. Their homemade desserts are awesome too! Milt's never disappoints!

We love weekend Specials. The portabella mushroom omelet is superb. The old fashioned country fried steak options are there. But they try to offer beyond the basics..

Convenient to hotels. Came back a second time during my visit to this area. I tried their best fried chicken and it was good. Prices were fair.

Ordered fried chicken dinner, it was a little bloody. So I sent it back. Unfortunatly, it was the last chicken dinner they had. They deceided to fix it up instead. However, they did offer that if I wasn't happy with it that they would replace it. I cant complain,they even gave me a free desert! I would recommend this place... More
