    Seafood Gumbo and Fried Green tomatoes were very good. Salmon was overcooked, but Trout was very good with the grits. Potatoes were supposed to be Fingerling but small Yukon Gold were substituted. Roll while good, were not warm. Will probably not come often, as the prices are way high for basic southern food.

    The food quality was excellent but we saw that portions were smaller and prices much higher. The salmon was our entree. Also, we had two birthdays in our group and the complimentary dessert was no longer done. Very disappointed.

    I arrived at 12:55 for a 1:30 reservation, thinking the parking would be problematic. Although crowded, I quickly found an open space! I went inside to simply let the hostess know we were there, and she said she thought we could be seated now. We were! The entire experience was just what I needed after a busy Holy Week. The food was plentiful, well prepared, and DELICIOUS! The tables near us were filled, but the ambiance was perfect - jovial atmosphere with soft music and conversations. I had the pork chop and grits - who knew collards and eggs would be perfect with this - entree!? My friend had beef and oysters, again with grits and collards. Both were excellent, served hot, and beautifully presented. Milners never misses!

    Everything about our dinner and experience was excellent. Our table was ready upon arrival; Vanessa, our server, was spot on, helpful with menu questions, professional and friendly. And both of our entrees were delicious and perfectly prepared. My dining partner had a special - frogmore stew, and it was packed with seafood and was complemented by a light and flavorful sauce. I thoroughly enjoyed the sautéed shrimp & scallops with gnocchi with a lovely béarnaise butter. We look forward to having both of these dishes again! First rate in every regard!

    We went for dinner before a concert with friends. The food was excellent, as usual. Our service was very good. Drinks were delicious. Prices were fair for the quality. The jazz music was nice but it did make the whole atmosphere a little loud. Drinks came right out, appetizers were timely. It took a bit to get our dinner but acceptable. Busy night. It was easy to make a reservation though.
