Reservation was made on OpenTable two weeks in advance for a 50th birthday dinner. During the online reservation process, OpenTable asks if we are celebrating a special occasion such as birthday, anniversary, etc. I indicated online that we were celebrating a special birthday, both on the automated response and in the comment field.

When we arrived, we asked for one of the open booths and were told that they were reserved and I could have asked for a booth when I reserved my table. I asked how one would reserve a booth as I didn't know it was possible. I was told it was done either on the phone or on the app itself in the comment field.

Moving ahead, dinner was good. The filet was cooked properly and delicious, as always, but the brussel sprouts with bacon was disappointing as I saw only a few small pieces of bacon on the plate. Dinner progressed and there was no mention at all from the server regarding our celebration and I didn't want to point it out as I wanted it to be discreet, but acknowledged. Apparently the comments on the online reservation are noted if you want a booth, but not if you are celebrating a milestone birthday at their establishment. That was a disappointment.

The fried chicken with tomato gravy is just ridiculously yum.

The food was ok. We were the second table seated for dinner service and the two of us were seated next to a table of 6 boisterously celebrating a birthday. The whole restaurant was available but we were seated next to the loud group and my seat stared straight at a large black trash can and broom. Oh well. I guess it was going to get busy and a good table couldn’t be spared.

Even with reservations we were seated at a table in the middle of the room next to a large rather noisy party. Would have preferred a more isolated booth. There were 2 available nearby and I wish I had requested to be moved because people were seated there after us. Would have thought reservations would have meant better seating.
Food was delicious/ service good except my husband ran out of water.

This restaurant looks understated from the outside, and the interior is a little dated. However, we liked that they seated us next to the fireplace. The food is delicious, as are the cocktails. I highly recommend their "New Old Fashion." We loved all our food, from the fried pickles (best we have ever had; lightly fried), to the braised short ribs and steak. The food is simple and done very well. We have started to visit Winston-Salem and often stay overnight so the drive to Hanging Rock State Park is not too far. We'll definitely be back to Milner's. I plan on trying their fried chicken next!

It was a little loud when we walked in but they moved us to a nice quiet section in the back. We enjoyed our food and had wonderful service but we felt that it was too overpriced. I wish they had their fireplace going but for some reason only had the pilot light lit. Overall a good experience for Friday night. Mostly older couples which we like because it’s not crazy and loud.

Menu sounds good but execution wasn't great. The Bruschetta was soggy and had too much garlic. The crab cakes were bland and had no texture or crunch. We didn't stay for dessert.

Milner’s is always a guaranteed favorite place to go with family and friends! I have seriously never had a bad experience there. Our server was wonderful and very friendly. This last trip I tried the Yellow Fin Tuna ceviche and it was hands down the best I’ve had. Of course - the collard greens and Mac and Cheese are ahhh...mazing too! Highly recommend!

I had the Mahi mahi special while others had the shrimp & grits and the salmon spinach salad. All three were simply delicious! This was one of the best meals I’ve had all year. Friendly, attentive service as well! Definitely recommended. Nice place for groups too.

Server was prompt, friendly. The food was delicious, a terrific blend of flavors. We had the duck, the mahi special, and the forbidden rice dish—there was something for everyone, even a vegan. This was our third dining experience at Milner’s and will definitely return.

Great service all the way around... The hostess is also a multi tasking server, bus person and overall phenom. The bartender, John, also multi tasked (like a woman would) and was extremely attentive to our large group. He served water, drinks and helped keep the billing straight and was overseeing all our needs with great care. The good was fabulous, as always! We LOVE this place💕

Everything is always good at Milner’s, but they did substitute shrimp for scallops with my Seabass without giving a reason. It was very good, but scallops beat shrimp any day.
