    This is our go to place for a nice date night. Everything from the service, food and ambiance is top notch. We have never had a bad meal there. I love their trout and my wife’s fillet is always cooked to perfection. The bourbon pecan pie with caramel ice cream is so good.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience this afternoon. From being seated to delicious cocktails and “oh my goodness this is good” food, we had a wonderful meal with great service. We were celebrating my birthday today and Milner’s was perfect for our small, quiet dinner. Each of us enjoyed it!

    Our date night went great, it was our first time to Milner's. Had heard good things so we tried it on Saturday at 645pm to our surprise it was not busy at all we walked in and was seated immediately. Our waitress was very prompt and courteous, she did Check on us a couple of times, our food came rather quick and it was good, I got Shrimp and grits, it was good I've had better,the grits were too runny for me,my husband got the grilled meatloaf which was good but his turnip greens were dry and chewy. All in all it was a good experience we will go again!

    Food was greasy and did not taste fresh. We had the fried chicken and the salmon, both underwhelming. Very noisy restaurant and just no atmosphere at all. First time here and we will not be back.

    Waitstaff was lacking in basic courtesy and waited 15 minutes to offer bread service after odering, food was slow to come kut. ( restaurant was empty with only 2 parties in seated at the time) ‘ Signature’ seasonal cocktails were very much substandard in both taste and appearance for menu price point; presentation of meal was lacking but ok, not great in taste. We will not return and can not recommend. The restaurant should have their social media and website match their reality: very much an average to below average dining experience in the local market at their price point.

    Always an excellent dining experience. Today we tried the Seared Scallops with black-green tomato, salt ham and sweet chili glaze. Amazing flavor profile! And the Fried Oysters with boursin grits, bacon, tomato gravy were excellent as always! Only wish we had room for dessert! Thank you!
