A word from Milton Inn
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!

    We were immediately seated at a table in the rather dark, back room, very colonial feeling room. While I would have preferred the brighter front room, we did not ask to change. Our service was attentive, but not bothersome. It was Restaurant Week, and we ordered from the RW special Prix Fixe Menu, as it contained most of the main menu choices, and most were slightly smaller than the al la carte versions. Just right for us. The menu was varied, though light on fresh seafood, but should have choices for anyone. The tenderloin was as good as I have ever had; melt in your mouth tender. The mashed potatoes, a tad salty for my taste, but I ate all of them with no trouble. An enjoyable evening.

    We had a great dinner. It was restaurant week, so we got to enjoy a reduced 3 course meal. It was still an expensive night when you add in wine and coffee. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. I had a lobster tail that was delicious! The Jack Tarr potatoes were also very good.

    Service is not up to the standards of the food. It brings the overall experience down as the food and the ambience are exceptional. And this is not the first time we have experienced service not up to the cuisine or setting of the Milton Inn, so I think it's time they addressed the issue. Service is slow, somewhat indifferent and definitely not attentive or welcoming.

    Prior to Saturday night's visit, my husband and I were last here for my 50th birthday-18 years ago!. He had surprised me with an entire late afternoon and evening of events, and dinner here was so romantic (I am sure the several stops along the way to various bars, and champagne in the limo added to the excitement, and made turning 50 fun!). He also presented me with a lovely new ring. Living in Crofton, we often thought about Milton Inn and wondered if it was as great as we remembered. I decided to surprise him (we do mystery dates/trips for each other) and try it. Garth took super care of us, and we will NOT stay away this long again.

    We have been to the Milton Inn for many years. Over the years it has been very good, excellent, really bad - all over the place in quality and service. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our server appeared quite quickly and took our drink order, allowed us time to relax before taking our dinner order. Our dinner arrived in good time and was excellent. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    We ordered from RW menu. The beet salad came with just two quarters of roasted beet and two teeny sections of orange and grapefruit (the “citrus supreme”). The roasted macadamia nuts were burnt; the advertised watermelon radish was not to be found. Tenderloin was cooked to order, but came with the tasteless leek compote unappetizingly glopped on top of the steak. In the veal scaloppine the melted Swiss cheese and proscuitto mess dominated the dish, overpowering the veal. The key lime pie and chocolate truffle torte were silkly and flavorful. Admittedly, RW can play havoc in a busy kitchen. But given the accolades that Chef Brian Boston has received, I was surprised to be so disappointed in our meal. We probably won’t return for dinner.

    My husband and I totally enjoyed our Lunch at the Milton Inn. We did not feel, because it was restaurant week the portion size was smaller at all. All courses were listed on the regular menu as well. From the ostrich carpaccio appetizer, to the desert, the meal was delicious; our server was very attentive, but not overwhelming. We will return for dinner.

    My husband and I went to the Milton Inn for the first time - it is a wonderful dining experience. It is not a an inexpensive evening out, but the food was outstanding, the wine list lengthy, the service excellent. And I love the atmosphere. An old inn, then school, then restaurant, private home and now back to a restaurant - from the 1700s to present. Just gives it a unique atmosphere. The service was impeccable - attentive but not overbearing nor intrusive. We enjoyed our entire meal at a leisurely pace. It is a great restaurant for a romantic evening.

    Great food with large portions that were nicely packaged for take home. Beautiful rooms. Should be very romantic in the evening. Over $100 for lunch is definitely a bit high but it was ever so delicious. Certainly would go back but it would have to be for a special occasion because of the price. Service was outstanding. Our visit lived up to the Inn's reputation of fine dining with quality food and service. Thank you Milton Inn for a very nice and relaxing lunch!

    My boyfriend planned my 60th birthday dinner at the Milton Inn, I had been wanting to go there for some time. My parents and family met there (8), looking really forward to seeing and dining at this really old/quaint restaurant. Well, my 80 year old Mother tripped twice because it was so dark. Thank goodness she didn't fall. We were seated at the back of the house, all the shutters were closed. I opened all the shutters so we could see. It took over an hour for our waiter to take our food order. So we ordered appetizers and our meal at the time. I ordered the crab cake dinner which came with stale chips, 2 bites of cold slaw and a pickle. I asked for crackers and they were also stale. Over all the food was good but not what you expect...

    We went to the Milton Inn for my birthday and it was just perfect. Our waiter was welcoming and friendly withour being too familiar. He actually made the evening for us. But the food!!! I had the trio: lobster, filet and veal scalopini...just so amazing. I love lobster but most around here is too expensive rubbery and not fresh. The filet cut like butter and the scallopini had a divine sauce. Highly reccommend a trip to Monkton for a dining experience that satisfies in all areas and makes a special occassion memorable!

    Had an outstanding delicious dinner! Would have been way too $$$ without coupon and it was most kind of them to honor an expired one. If ever to return, would request seating in alternate room with padded chairs. Wooden far too uncomfortable for a long, leisurely dinner. Fireplace would look better as is without candles.

    My wife and I enjoyed an exceptional dinner at Milton Inn on July 12, 2014. We visit that restaurant four or five times a year, and always look forward to going there. It is a very relaxing place, with really great food and excellent service. Yes, it is somewhat pricey, but worth the cost to enjoy unusually interesting offering of food. We always find some reason (anniversary or birthday, etc.) to come to Milton Inn, and if there is no special reason, we come anyway. We know we will have a really good meal and enjoyable evening.

    What a stable, precious gem, located in the scenic countryside. It never fails and seems to get better every time we dine there. It's big and beautiful, whilst warm and cheerful. The food is always a passion for the digestive system, presented with artistry, and served by the well-dressed servers, who own welcoming attitudes, mixed with professional aplomb. This is my favorite restaurant. It never fails. LOVE IT! By the way, I think the famous guest who was dining in the corner, also loves it.
