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.

    I requested the small room next to the bar so the 8 of us could sit privately to celebrate. We were upgraded to a private room in the front of the building. It was so nice and intimate. It was the first time for the Birthday girl to eat at The Milton Inn and she was quite impressed. Our server did an excellent job, food, beer, wine and desserts were wonderful.

    We went for the first time to the Milton Inn for my husband's birthday, and we were pleasantly surprised; this was fine dining at it's best in a local setting. We each ordered a special and they were excellent. It was a great dining experience. The portions were appropriate for both appetizers, entrees, and deserts. What we specifically enjoyed were the options for small plate deserts; this was a nice touch. I was extremely happy that staff actually read my special instructions for my Open Table reservation, and noted that this was a birthday dinner. When desert arrived; Happy Birthday was written on the desert with a candle! We will be back, and we look forward to it! I would recommend to anyone! What a great dining experience; in a local setting!

    The Milton Inn is our special occasion restaurant and never lest us down. The food is amazing and the staff treats everyone as if they are there for a special occasion. Just watching our waiter and how he knows when to come to table and when to stay back which is only accomplished with years of service. The appiterzers we had Oysters Rockerfeller and Cream of Maryland Crab soup were spectacular and they set the mood for our Entrees of Seafood Andur and Mixed Grill were again prepared tp perfection. The carrot cake which my wife enjoyed finished off the meal. As always we rate the Milton Inn #1

    We had not been to the Milton Inn in decades. We went when we got a gift certificate and were we ever surprised. This was a true gourmet meal. Any restaurant that has both sweetbreads and foie gras on the appetizer menu and Venison in the Fall gets extra credit in my book. The foie gras was fabulous and the Lamb entree just delicious. A lovely meal. We will not wait decades to go back!

    My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and chose the Milton Inn to have dinner. Everything about our dining experience at the Milton Inn was outstanding! The food was very flavorful, plentiful and cooked to perfection. We had the appetizer sampler for two and our entrées were the roasted duck and the Bermuda triangle. For dessert we had the chocolate peanut butter mousse cake and the carrot cake, oh so delicious. The service was great and our server was very attentive. The decor is beautiful. It's such a romantic environment with dim lighting. The Milton Inn is an expensive place to dine but it is worth every dollar. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially those celebrating a special event.

    The building was built in 1740 and has been well maintained. There are a number of dinning rooms well decorated providing pleasurable ambiance and comfortable dinning. My friends enjoyed the wine they ordered. My wife and I choose a dinner of steak, veal, and lobster from the specials that evening which we both thought were very good. My friends had lobster that was good. MY friend was not happy with the asparagus which he felt was cold and under cooked. The waiter said that he would return it to the kitchen and take the item off the check which he forgot to do. My friend brought the error to his attention and it was immediately fixed. The service was good. I would recommend the Milton Inn for a nice dinning experience.

    . Delicious. We had Oysters Rockefeller for appetizer. I had the triangle – lobster tail, filet, veal with mashed potatoes and veggies. He had filet topped with crab cake. Crab cake was little salty. We had the same veggies. We loved the dinner rolls and butter. We also loved the sauce on the Oyster Rockefeller and beef. Both these items were special off menu. We especially liked our waiter, Mark. He was friendly and attentive.

    presented us with a marvelous experience in dining & hospitality! As lovers of fine food & wine (as well local history & how ingredients connect the whole meal) Chef Brian's team presented a unique evening for us throughout! Garth, our waiter (& Chef's staff member for over 17 years) made us feel relaxed, informed & in charge of our dining experience from the moment he greeted us until we departed 3+ hrs later. Well versed in the menu (only a week or so old for the change of season), wine list & use of local "provider to table" ingredients & I n sync with Chef Boston's kitchen- totally PRO! Then there's The Chef himself! Meticulous Gracious & Gregarious, he passionately chatted with us even at the end of his long day! Go there NOW & ENJOY!

    We are not what one would call a regular, but we probably hit up the spot a half dozen times a year. The ambiance, the food, the service, the special chef's "treat" each visit...all of it keeps us coming back. This time it was just the two of us, but we have taken our kids there before and as long as your children know HOW to behave in a nice restaurant, they will be just fine. Garth was our server this time around and did a great job.

    A beautiful setting for a romantic occasion as long as you don't mind 70/80's era food. My wife and I enjoyed a meal mid-week surrounded by several couples celebrating special occasions and a group of defense contractors. The server had the whole room and was a bit overwhelmed, otherwise service was fine. The food, alas, to those who currently dine out more than once a year on Groupon and are under sixty, falls very flat. Salad was a solid B, nothing noteworthy or particularly imaginative. My seafood sampler was of decent quality although the shrimp lacked flavor and tasted of being frozen and thawed. My catfish was terrible-drenched in a brown gloppy sauce and overwhelmed by massive quantities of salt. The veg entree was a B.

    We were looking for a "special" dinner, and this was it. The food was definitely upscale, and all of it tasted delicious. The historic details of the building really set the restaurant apart from all the rest. The service was perfect: attentive and knowledgeable, but without pestering and asking how everything is, every five minutes. The only bummer is that they seated a table of eight or ten right behind us, so that we had to raise our voices to have a conversation. Probably would be better to put a group of that size in a more private room, so that smaller tables/ couples can enjoy the romantic atmosphere!

It surpassed our expectations. And an added bonus was that it was Baltimore County Restaurant Week. Even at regular prices, I would recommend it as a special occasion place to dine.
