We had previously dined here and it was a great overall experience. However this visit was different. A birthday celebration dinner seemed ideal at Milner's. We were quickly seated. The salads and calamari were good, yet the entrees were less than stellar. My crab cake was on the bland side. My companion's sea bass was very uncooked. It was sent back and taken off our bill, however that along ruined my date's appetite. It may have been an off night at Milner's but this experience has left a bad taste.

I sent my parents here for their 45th wedding anniversary dinner. I dropped off flowers for my mom 2 hours before they arrived and and was assured she would receive them. She did not. This was more than disappointing. My parents did enjoy their meals however.

We came here for my mom’s birthday and had requested a booth but were placed at a table in the back by a very loud and unruly party behind us which did not make for the best experience. The food was excellent though. Disappointed as this was our first poor experience at Milner’s.

As always, Milner's provided the best experience. The food is wonderful, service perfect and ambiance outstanding. There was a special, gazpacho, the night we went and it was the best I've ever had. Our seafood entrees were delicious and generous in portion. We were too full to have dessert, much to our disappointment. This restaurant is a good venue for a special night out although it is not dressy and welcomes all comers.

The large table for our party of 7 was perfect. We were seated in the area adjacent to the bar. Most of our group were from Florida and they were pleased with the food as were we (we are local regulars to Milner's). Service was great. Thank you.

I hosted a birthday dinner party for my Son for a table of 5. The bread and butter was excellent, calamari was okay in texture but seriously lacked flavor, and the "top" sirloin was comprised mostly of fat and gristle, and the fingerling potatoes were hardly cooked. My wife ordered the crab cakes. I tasted her crab cakes, which were very pungent. We can afford the higher prices without issue, but this was an entirely unpleasant dinning experience - we won't return.

Really good food. The hangar steak and the fried chicken are really good. Don't skip the collards and the hash brown casserole.

I have not been to Milner's in awhile. I was really excited to return with my co-worker and candidate but was disappointed overall. The food was not as tasty as I remember. The fried green tomatoes where pretty greasy. The fried chicken, whipped potatoes, collard greens were bland and pecan pie was cold and tasted old. I did not share my thoughts with our server as she did not seem too friendly and we were on a business dinner. I am not sure if I would give it another try but if I do, I hope the experience is much better.

Outstanding, original menu, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and great, professional service. We could not have been happier with our evening at Milner's. Highly recommended, particularly if you're interested in a local, "non-chain" dining experience.

Very good food, great atmosphere, live jazz. Were there for our first visit and everything was great except....we felt like we were not treated as well as other guests. Not having been there before, I wore shorts. Guess that wasn't good since most other men had long pants and dress shirts, some had on suits and ties. As soon as we entered (with reservations) they tried to seat us at one of the only 2 person tables, as far away from the music as possible. Not good. We asked for another table and got it. Other couples came in after us and were seated at 4 person tables. Restaurants shouldn't even have those tiny 2 person tables. Not enough room for food. An older couple sat near us and were waited on hand and foot. Obviously they knew the couple and treated them like royalty. We had occasional service at best. It's a mistake to judge people by how they dress or by how well you know them. And...almost forgot. Had a couple manhattens with no ice. Not bad but they tasted like a drink with lots of ice after all of the ice melts, i.e. watered down. Not saying it was, but sure tasted like it. Liked the place but not sure we'll give it another try. If we do, I'll be sure to dress better than anyone else there and see if it makes a difference.
