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 place is cozy, especially this time of year with... More

This is just what it's cracked up to be: a first-class meal with first-class service & food at a cost. Ousmane (sp?) was an excellent waiter who knew how to handle wine uncertainty and what to serve whom: all 3 of us loved what he suggested. The warm atmosphere varies from room to room--all good--and yes, the prices are high,... More

The Milton Inn is lovely! It's old and charming and can be very romantic. We've been there for brunch, cocktail parties, small plate dinners, but it is a favorite "anniversary restaurant" bc it's not someplace you would go to frequently but when you go it's special. The food is good, expensive and service is top. I love their drinks. The... More

This is a classy and elegant place in the northern suburbs of Baltimore. The ambience is terrific. The server was excellent. Only two relatively minor flaws at our recent dinner. The NY strip steak was great. The Tuna was terrific. The caesar salad perfect. The two minor flaws: 1) a side order of spinach was oversalted quite a bit. 2)... More

We only come here for special occasions as it's a little expensive but worth it for special nights. The apps are always good size. Dinner was great as always.

There is no other restaurant in Baltimore County that can claim truly gourmet food as does The Milton Inn. It used to be a go-to restaurant for special occasions but it has become a neighborhood venue as well. One recent visit to the bar/lounge area resulted in a delightful evening. We started with a splendid sweetbreads first course covered with... More

The food was good, our server was nice, but on the way out they had lost our umbrella (on a rainy night) and were very disagreable about it. Obviously, an umbrella is not a very valuable possession and I really didn't mind much that is was gone -except for the inconvenience of getting wet that night-. However, the way it... More

Love the Milton Inn and always ask for Tom to be our server. The food is incredibly good and it always makes our special occasion even more special. The old stone inn takes you back in time. Wonderful special date night destination, A little pricey but well worth every penny.

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!
