Milton in was a favorite for crab cakes, but not the best time of year for crab. We tried the small plates. Food was good, but eat in the bar (they say lounge) and the ambience was not as nice. They were not very busy for a Friday night.

This was our second time in less than three weeks.The food was outstanding and so is the ambiance.The first time the service was outstanding, this second time it was not as good.The first time was during the week and the second was a Friday which may have been the reason.They seemed to have either been short staffed or our waiter was requested by everyone.It was a special evening to us as our Grandson had been accepted to his college choice for which he had worked very hard.This was not even acknowledged until his desert was placed in front of him with Congratulations written on it ,no comment from anyone.

The Milton Inn implemented a brilliant idea...small plates. It is offered in their lounge only but
there are really two rooms, one with a bar and two T.V.s and the other with a gigantic fireplace.
The food is fantastic at $12 a plate and we will go there now at least once a month even though it's about a 1/2 hour from our house; it's worth it as the food and service are outstanding!

My wife and I were looking for something "low key" to celebrate new years eve. With their pre-determined 4 course menu, there were plenty of delicious options. We could not have asked for anything better on our New Year's Eve.

Fabulous food and spot on service. Wine list is extensive but overpriced. We had a nice table in what I call the "old room" with the big fireplace. Pretty disappointing that the fireplace wasn't lit as this was a few days before Christmas. The excuse was it needs to be 40 degrees or the fireplace won't draw. Hmm.
Can't say I've heard that one before.
Overall,though, highly recommend for an intimate or family occasion.

My husband and I have been going for Xmas Eve dinner for the past 39 years and have alternated between our favorite places, the Milton Inn being one of them. We now have my mom living with us, so it's not easy to get out. We were lucky to get someone to stay with her on our night to the Milton Inn. My husbands dinner was wonderful and he's still talking about it. Mine, however, was not that memorable. I started out with the oyster stew, which I was craving, but when I got it, there was no flavor to it at all and no salt or pepper at the table. By the time the waitress came back to us, my soup was almost done so there was no point in asking for it. My main meal was the short rib. It was very dry and very fatty. It was so dark at our table that I couldn't really see the fat to cut it out, so every time I would take a bite, I was getting a mouthful of fat that I had to swallow, I didn't want to disgust everyone around us by spitting it out into a napkin :)

We have been there many many times and have never been disappointed. The food is always prepared with the utmost care and presentation is perfect. No matter how crowded they are, they always make you feel so special. My brother comes in for Christmas every year and it would not be complete if we didn't get to the Milton Inn. He literally has traveled the world but always tells us that this is one of his favorite places to dine.
Thank you for making his Christmas every year:)

The overall experience, atmosphere, service and food made this an excellent special occasion dining occasion. This is a very nice establishment where the special occasion warrants the cost, however it is a little expensive for regular visits. Price aside the food was excellent with a decent plateful.

Other than pricey, it's such a wonderful venue to gather and enjoy your friends and loved ones in intimate cozy surroundings, with vast menu options, and, for those who need an escape, a drive to the Outback of Baltimore County.

The only note that I would give is that there is a table in the bar that is situated too close to a door that is opened frequently by people coming in and out of the restaurant. There is a cold draft and the door bumps the chair closest to it. This is where we were sitting and it did detract from our enjoyment of the evening to a degree. When we asked about why we were seated there as opposed to the empty table next to it, the answer was just that was how the hostess seated us.

We ate at Milton Inn a little over 32 years ago the day we got married. During our visit to Maryland this past week we decided to dine there again and we were not disappointed. It's as good as it was back then. When you're in the Baltimore area and want a truly memorable dining experience, the Milton Inn is the place!

So I love the Milton Inn, I have been going for special occasions and for great food for over 20 years. The atmosphere is fantastic, very romantic and terrific service. The cost has consistently risen to the point where for three people it cost us $450. We did get a $60 bottle of wine and everyone had one $15 cocktail prior to dinner. Don't get me wrong, its a great experience, but $450 makes this a place that is close to being crossed off of my special occasion list. Everything is A-La Carte, even the sauces for your steak are charged at $4 per sauce...crazy. Clearly the business is going well as they have invested in new outdoor dinning space and refreshed the interior...I guess that will continue as long as people like me keep shelling out silly money for a first class meal.

Our meal was fabulous! Our waitress was also great. They almost called us to tell us about an accident nearby. How many restaurants are that thoughtful. Our meal was delicious! The chef wrote Happy Anniversay on our dessert plate. How sweet. Thank you Milton Inn.

I have frequently dined at this distinguished "Inn" since the 1960's as it has gone through the hands of various owners. Generally, it has been excellent and over the years my wife and I have hosted many family and business functions here which have been very memorable and enjoyable. We miss our usual waiter Garth who was always so capable and reliable.
Our recent dining experience, with our guests, was remarkable for exceedingly slow and poor service - we actually had to find our wait staff member ourselves following a long delay while seated at our assigned table. The food quality was very good, as we expected, but the service needs urgent management attention.

In fairness, I think this evening was not The Milton Inns fault... but I've always loved the inn for a quiet dinner. A group of only 4 came in and was exceptionally loud!!!! Ruined my night n moving from a great server would have been unfair to him.. the food and service as always was great!!!
I'd go again..... but may request a quiet corner if possible.

Built in 1740, it was once a boys school. The restaurant is first rate and the food is spectacular, so was the service. Its a beautiful historical building, one I hope will be preserved for generations to come. What a lovely place to eat.

This is one of our favorite places for fall and winter dinners because the place is so beautiful. It is used to be that you could get a quiet meal by dining in the "old kitchen" room, but now they put big groups in their too which makes the noise level a bit much.

An old stand-by that still delivers. A charmer with old school ambiance in a cozy setting that offers interesting, quality, well presented food offerings. Not trendy or cutting edge, but a good choice with reliable results. Great serve staff in an atmosphere that gets a bit crowded and hectic on busy nights.
