A word from Milton Inn
The Milton Inn, a 274 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!

    Though this restaurant is billed as the "engagement spot" I did not find it particularly romantic. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and were a little shocked that the ambiance was not very romantic. The large party of friends at a nearby table was pretty loud. My husband found the decor rather old and ugly. I however liked the colonial look, but also found the bird feathers in the lighting a bit strange. Though the look of this restaurant was off the food was spectacular. Every single course was better than the next. The chef even sent out something he just "made". It was a wonderful little tart with exceptional taste and flavor. We will return and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    The food is overpriced. Maryland Crab soup didn't have lamed crab meat, just some meat sprinkled on top and plenty of vegetables. My sword fish tasted fishy and for the price of this dish it should be very fresh! Also, the beef dish that we ordered wasn't as tender as get it at Morton's of Chicago. The choice of desserts was not really impressive, rather limitted. The meal was not worth the trip!!!

    When we entered the restaurant, we were afraid that there may be some attitude because of the lush surroundings and the restaurant's reputation. But, we were made to feel welcome at once by the gracious hostess. Our food was truly superb, if just a bit pricey. Our server, Mary McDonald, truly made the evening an outstadning event. Her service was excellent, yet combined with a friendly and fun personality! One of our best overall dining experiences yet in the Baltimore area. Thanks!

Without a gift certificate, it would be hard for the average couple to justify paying those prices, but then again, everyone deserves at least one quality dining experience. We had ours at the Milton Inn.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/5/2008
    The food, while done very well, wasn't particularly inventive. Classical music and the museum-like historic building made for a staid atmosphere. The wine list, especially the red wine by the glass, was unacceptably pedestrian and expensive. Do they really expect people to pay $10 for a glass of Bogle Zinfandel? Really? When the wine list is one of the first things a customer sees and it's done this badly, a sour taste lingers for the rest of the evening. The brightest light here was the friendly and professional service.

    We enjoyed our dining experience at Milton Inn. The food was excellent, but the service was not up to par. It appeared that our server had too many tables. There was a large party in a room adjacent to us that was a little loud. The room we were seated in was very nice with low lighting and provided a nice atmosphere as we were celebrating our anniversary. The chairs were very uncomfortable and need to be replaced. The menu was a little pricey. We have been dining at The Milton Inn for many years and personally know Brian, one of the owners who is great.

    This was our first visit. The small room in which we were seated was too dark, too noisy and the smoky air from the fireplace was not pleasant. The portions, except for rolls and butter, were fair and the food was good. BUT: the room was so poorly lit, we could not enjoy the visual aspect. The service was generally average, not what you would expect for a restaurant of this calibre. My chair was wobbly. Although the table was the smallest table for 2 at which I have ever been seated, it was so noisy we couldn't really have much conversation with the constant din of everyone else at the 7 other tables in the room.

    We have been going to the Milton Inn for a long time. In fact we had our daughter's Wedding Rehersal Dinner there several years ago. My wife and I both had the "special"; a crabcake on top of a filet. To be perfectly honest, the crabcake was terrible. It was "fishy" to the point that my wife only ate a small portion. Crabcakes in Maryland should be "memorable" for their quality not their "fishiness". I also must say that the "smokiness" smell from the fireplaces was distracting and annoying to me while others didn't seem to mind as much. We were disappointed.

    I think for the room sizes, they should seat business lunches in seperate rooms from other people coming in to enjoy a birthday lunch / casual lunch. This way you don't have to listen to the table next to you discussing business while trying to enjoy a casual lunch when you're the only 2 tables in the room.
