Milton Inn Ratings and Reviews
THe Milton Inn offers a classic experience but with a vibrant and distinctive take on a variety of menu choices . the preparations are beautifully presented and are meant to be both visually and palate pleasing. WE found the lunch choices to be diverse and we're both delighted with our choices...a wonderful mushroom torte in phyllo and a Korean prepared pork tenderloin. BOth meals followed a special smoked salmon appetizer that we shared.
Great meal.wonderful quality.
I am not sure why they always tell you about the specials , without mentioning the price, AFTER you have looked at the menu for 15 minutes and have decided . The specials should be printed so one can decide. By the time the last ingredient in the final special is mentioned, I have long forgotten the first special.
Nice ambiance, excellent service, great food. We both started off with soup, my wife with cream of crab that was delicious and me with the watermelon gazpacho that I would have again in a heartbeat---great blend of sweet and spicy flavors. For our main course, I had the duck breast with raspberry sauce, mashed potatoes and watercress salad in a honey vinaigrette dressing, all done to perfection. My wife had the sword fish in lobster sauce and she raved about it. We finished with coffees and I enjoyed the strawberry shortcake. We will be back again next year as our annual treat.
Disappointed in our experience overall. I expected better. The rolls were hard. The hostess couldn't find us a better table when we asked and told us that the two I asked about were for other people. Later in the evening our waiter changed another guest's table to one of the tables we asked about(no one came to sit at that table the whole time we were there). I guess we asked the wrong person! My husband's steak was way undercooked for what he requested. I ordered a side of mashed potatoes and they looked like they were thrown on the plate. My key lime pie crust was hard at the top and could barely cut it with my fork. The boys helping the waiters were on top of refilling water glasses so that was good. One gentleman was talking on his phone on speaker. No one asked to to go outside or anything. Considering their reputation and the final cost of our meal I expected better! I never write reviews good or bad but, this was just a great disappointment. I'll try maybe one more time to give them another chance so hopefully it was just an off night!
The Milton inn has been one of our favorites for many, many years. That tradition is renewed every time we dine there.
This time my wife enjoyed a salmon special while I had a beef filet with crab cake--both meals were perfect! We both indulged in a variety of desserts and coffee. A wonderful evening with a very attentive waitress!
Lunch was, as expected, another perfect occasion. The service, food and subtle kindnesses show were the best possible. All members of the party commented on how the lamb, rich boys and surf and turf were prepared in the best way possible. Good food and great fun.
The Milton Inn is an old favorite that keeps up with the times but is rarely at the forefront of the latest cuisine, but then I don't think their clientele would be as happy if they did! The old-fashioned, intimate setting is a crucial part of its appeal. You feel like you are dining in a friend's elegantly appointed centuries-old home. The beet carpaccio appetizer was fresh and appealing and the crab soup an old Baltimore favorite that didn't disappoint. Several of us had the swordfish special, which was executed rather simply, but perfectly. Service was discreet and prompt, despite it being a busy Saturday night. The crowd was older but there were a few young couples who seemed to be on dates celebrating special occasions.
The food and service in the dining room was excellent . It was restaurant week and very busy but the meal was very delicious and served by a very polite and attentive waitress . The coffee and desserts were disappointing as the coffee was very weak and the desserts were clearly store-bought . The service in the bar was nonexistent as we sat for a good 25 minutes without anyone noticing us . We finally just moved to our table as it was ready and ordered our cocktails there .
Historic stone inn that brings you back to the 1800's through the building itself, exquisite decorations and large, original stone hearth with an intimate setting. The fact that John Wilkes Booth attended a boys school there makes the ambiance more fascinating. The fine dining, white linens and delicious menu selections add to the experience. Well priced but not inexpensive!
Lovely as always! This is our favorite special date place to dine. There are no surprises--one can always count on impeccable, subtle, and well-paced service. The food selections are interesting and always excellently prepared. Although many of the tables are close together in this mid-18th century inn, table conversation is always quiet and non-intrusive and seating in a variety of the inn's small rooms creates an intimate, comfortably refined atmosphere. For those not familiar with The Milton Inn, this is an "old school" place, where one will feel most comfortable appropriately dressed and with company who also enjoy this type of quiet dining.
Dined on a recent Sunday afternoon. As always, the food and service was exceptional. Our server, Ouseman, could not have been any more polite and appropriately attentive. My NY strip and my wife's lobster tail were fantastic. I have only one suggestion - perhaps consider swapping out the big band background music with some classical - would further enhance the elegant decorum and experience.
As always The Milton Inn never is a disappointment. The food is always delicious and the service is good. We met friends who used to live here but are now in Hilton Head, S.C. They were thrilled that we chose The Milton Inn because they hadn't been in years.
Usually love going to the Milton Inn. This was the first time we tried outside dinning. Way to much road noise and our waitress completely forgot about us. Usually impeccable service but this was a huge disappointment. Even after checking on us and apologized she left us again.
The Milton Inn continues to please. One can count on the Milton Inn for excellent food,
well-executed. The service is outstanding and the menu choices are varied and appealing.
It is a top 5 restaurant in the state of Maryland. My family and I try to go to the Milton Inn at least once a month. We also prefer the Lounge but the other rooms are remarkable for an 18th century-built restaurant as they are beautifully decorated and charming.
The Milton Inn is a traditional restaurant in a historic building, truely a Maryland classic. The service is professional without being stuffy and the interior design is timeless with many small rooms for dining, so noise should not be a concern. We love The Milton Inn, sometimes you may think oh wow, it is so expensive, however as the saying goes " you get what you pay for". The special of the day was Maryland crab cakes served with a dirty rice and fresh vegtables. We even saved room for dessert (all prepared in house), an outstanding cheesecake and a key lime pie made with perfection.
Thank you, The Milton Inn for staying true to what you do best, excellent food, superior service, in a traditional atmosphere, with a cozy outdoor terrace for whatever may suit the guest!
