Food was excellent! The pot roast and crusted trout(I think that’s what was) was very good, like always. The potato cakes and crab cake was also great. Waitress failed to tell us the specials... we later overheard them being told to someone else. I might have preferred the special, wish I had known.

This was our first time to Milner's. I work less than a mile away and never even realized it was there. This will be a new favorite for my husband and I.

Jason was our waiter and he was great. If you like wine, he is very knowledgeable in helping to choose the right one for you. We stated with She Crab soup. It was delicious!!! Between the five of us for dinner we had an assortment that everyone enjoyed!! Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Scallops, Potroast and Salmon. Our meals were served hot and quickly. Efficient waiter, delicious & reasonably priced meals. We highly recommend Milner's!

We came to North Carolina to spend the winter. Milner's caught our eye as a place to try American Southern Cuisine. We weren't disappointed. We went for brunch and were treated to delicious food, great service and relaxing atmosphere.
We will be back

p.s. don't skip the fried chicken, it's super!

Different, but good, menu. Food thoughtfully prepared and good side options. I would have preferred more char to my steak, but it was tasty. The potato cake was a bit soggy, but overall food and service were very good. Recommend Milner's!

My kids and I met my sister and brother from Knoxville at Milner’s for a belated thanksgiving dinner. Misty C was professional and offered many solid recommendations from this outstanding menu. If you like Southern food, this is your place.....

The left over shrimp and grits was awesome.....also the she crab soup was very authentic. We will be back even though we don’t live in WS.....

I was amazed by the flavor and presentation of the special (bone -in pork chop) however troubled that ALL the kitchen staff were NOT wearing masks while cooking / plating. Our server Misty was amazingly attentive and made took our experience to the next level. I have not visited in about a year and I will not be back until I can be confident that the food is prepared with COVID precautions.

I had business associates,one from Maryland, one from Israel, and both thoroughly loved our cocktails and food. Of course, it’s my favorite restaurant! We all had the G & G Martini, and different entrees: fried oysters, crab cakes, fried chicken, Mac & cheese, succotash, and those wonderful rolls. 😋
Bartenders and servers are the best!
