Went here for my anniversary. Had reservations, but still had to wait for close to an hour before being seated. The atmosphere was very nice but just a little bit crowded for my taste. The food was well below average and the price was way beyond the food quality. The service was slow and the attitude was not at all... More

We had been sporadic in our visits to the Milton Inn in the past but happened to go several times within a short period of time. This experience allowed us to see more clearly what we had been missing. Professional service, excellent food and a genuinely nice evening.

We took my mom and her friend to Milton Inn two days after Christmas as a special treat--they are from out of town, California and New York respectively. I'll admit that I wanted to impress them, and impressed they were. The Milton Inn has a rich history in a stone building dating back to 1740. And what a lovely place... More

We've been here several times and we have never been disappointed! Food is excellent and service is fantastic. I enjoyed how our waiter didn't just list the specials. Instead, he actually described the cooking process and the ingredients of each dish and there were multiple. I would definitely recommend this place! On the expensive side but worth it IMO.

My husband took me to Milton Inn for Anniversary lunch. It's an upscale American restaurant. We went a couple of weeks before thanksgiving. The place was fully decorated for Christmas. Nice ambience and was perfect to enjoy a quite anniversary treat. We ordered Malbec (2013) which paired well with the bread served to our table. I got the Chicken TrenTino.... More

I had dinner here tonight with a dear friend. We had a reservation and arrived on time. We were the only people in the dining room when we arrived.

My family and I went to the Milton Inn for lunch. The food was good. They were busy but the waiter could have been more attentive when things slowed down. The smaller size desserts were a Perfect size after having a big lunch. The food was perfectly prepared.

Our friends take us to dinner here every year to celebrate their anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful, old time style, and very relaxing. Food is solid although on the expensive side. Service was a little too slow this time, but I thought the server noticed we were talking and having a good time and perhaps did not want to interrupt.... More

The Milton Inn is now featuring a new small plates menu and a menu to celebrate 70 years in business. The building was once a school and one of the students was John Wilkes Booth, not sure if that's good or not. It is named after popular author John Milton.

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!
