The Milton Inn, a 278 year old field-stone building in Northern Baltimore County,is counted among Maryland's historic treasures. It is believed that construction of the Inn began in 1740 and it has grown and changed over the years to become one of the premier country dining spots in the United States. The tradition of excellence has continued to grow under the current ownership Milton Fare Inc, who purchased the business in 1997. Executive Chef/Owner Brian Boston was named Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Maryland in 2011.Chef Boston has also received many other awards including The Five Star Diamond Award by The Academy of Hospitality Sciences , The DiRoNA Award,and top ratings from Zagat. The Milton was named The Best restaurant in the Counties by The Baltimore Sun . Over the years , the Inn has engendered a legacy of romance and numerous couples have become engaged in its candlelit dining rooms and open air garden terrace. Many return year after year to celebrate!

Good food and service for a quick meal. We ate in the lounge as it has a more casual feel than the dining room.

The server delivered meal to wrong person twice and bumped into my chair three times. They were extremely busy but I guess for $95./person we expect better service.
The meals were excellent.

Beautiful quaint restaurant away from the city. The service and the food was amazing. We had filet mignon with a crab cake and hollindaise sauce. Beyond delicious. The cream of crab soup was just as delicious. Our waiter was on par and very attentive. Serving size was just right. Desserts were ordered and taken home for later. Peanut butter cake was very rich and the portion is enough for two people to share. Highly recommend for that special occasion or event.

This is the first time in many visits that I can complain. My side dish potato did not arrive until I was almost finished with the entree. I chose not to send it back (I love the Jack Tarr potato), and no offer was made to rebate the cost. I don't know if the kitchen or the server was at fault (I reminded the server three times that I was waiting). At a restaurant of this caliber - and prices - this is inexcusable. Other than this issue, dinner was up to the usual high standards.

Going on a Saturday night may have been a mistake. We had 8pm reservations but had to wait for 35 minutes before being seated. It then took quite a bit of time to initially get served. After the initial delay service and food was amazing. All in all worth the wait and the cost, but started off a bit rough. Next time will be on a weeknight.

Had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation time.
Went to the bar & never got served- bartender said she would be right with us, and never acknowledged us again. She was not attentive to the those seated at the bar.
Only 6 bar stools and everyone had to wait an unreasonable amount of time to get a drink.
Dinner server was good...but we had to ask to hear the dinner specials.
Filets were way over charred on the outside - and dried out inside (even though they were pink)
Way overpriced for the a la carte menu.

This is the second time I have been to the Milton, which I believe is the best dining in the area. The food and the service are exceptional. I gave it four stars but would have given it 4.5 if possible. The Milton is a more traditional dining experience, where you can dine together and have a conversation without raising your voice, and where a dinner jacket is standard attire. It is a huge step up from chain restaurants near the shopping mall, and so is the food which ranges from standard Cordon Bleu favorites like rack of lamb to imaginative surf and turf combos. It was great both times we have been, just a bit slow on the dinner service this past time, but maybe due to Valentine's rush. Highly recommended for that special night, or when you want to be treated like a king and queen.

It's always a treat to eat at The Milton Inn. This time was no different. The service was efficient and the server was wonderful. The food is outstanding. We would liked to have sat in the dining area with the fireplace but it was full. Also, it was exceedingly crowded as we were told it was the last day of Baltimore County Restaurant Week. Nevertheless, that will not deter us from returning.

The Milton Inn never disappoints. It is truly a gem, one of the very best restaurants in the Baltimore area.
My wife & I took advantage of Baltimore County Restaurant Week to dine at The Milton Inn, and I had the beef tartare, blackened catfish and the macadamia nut cake while my wife enjoyed the asparagus soup, the salmon and the tiramisu for dessert. Each dish was delicious.
Terry was our waitress. She could not have been more attentive, polite, or professional. Her colleagues kept our water glasses filled and cleared our dishes promptly.
We will most certainly return.

We took our daughter and husband to celebrate her birthday. We were seated in a room with a wood burning fireplace that smelled so good ~ perfect for a cold winter’s night! The lovely ambiance, our attentive waiter, and expertly prepared food provided us a most enjoyable evening. It was our first visit to the Milton Inn and we’re already looking forward to our next one!

We always enjoy the Milton Inn and this past week was no exception! The food was outstanding as was the service. Our server Diana was very friendly, easy-going, and attentive. Their Restaurant Week menu included a nice variety of appetizers and entrees. We both chose the Fall Harvest Salad for our appetizer and the Salmon for our entree. The presentation was very artistic and pleasing to the eye. The food preparation was equally good and we both enjoyed our meals -- including the Creme Brulee and Flowerless Chocolate Truffle Torte we had for dessert. Overall a great time. The Milton Inn is highly recommended!

Unfortunately the meal fell short. If the food doesn't meet or exceed expectations then regardless of the amazing atmosphere and wonderful service, the value of the experience is diminished. We started with the cheese plate which was nice. My oyster stew was amazing, great flavor with several large, plump oysters. My wife stated her smokes salmon was fine. She raved, however, of her filet oscar. My venison, on the other hand, while cooked as requested, had some indescribable 'off' flavors. The presentations were beautiful. For desert we shared what sounded amazing on the menu, a peanut butter and chocolate creation. However, it turned out to appear to be pre-purchased packaged and disappointed in texture and flavor.

We have visited The Milton Inn several times over the years and will definitely return. Tom is an amazing server. The character of the decor is very relaxing. This lackluster meal will be chalked up as an off evening for the kitchen.

Try to update the atmosphere and not sit all two tops together shoulder to shoulder.
It was just odd to have someone so close to you and not be eating with them.

Excellent food! Love the mussels and the filet! Try and get a table on the first floor. Alcohal is a bit pricy, but everything is great. We did tell them we were celebrating 2 birthdays and they just brought a plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate. It was pretty, but they should have given complimentary dessert. The bread pudding was dry and tasteless. However, we enjoyed our dinner

We went early Saturday evening for restaurant week. Always a good deal as the appetizer is usually worth half the price of the meal. My only complaint about The Milton Inn is that the dessert choices are a crapshoot. If I could see what they are offering, I might make a very different choice. Their description of a dessert and it's actual appearance were the only minor disappointment of the evening. Other than that, this is an excellent special occasion place that we return to again and again.

We have been to the Milton Inn a few times over the years and decided to celebrate my husband’s birthday there this year. He said the cheese plate and the crispy skin salmon Florentine were excellent. My French onion soup and the seafood curry were good but very salty. The tiramisu was ok and the cocktails were mediocre. We ordered 3 different ones and were not impressed at all. I didn’t finish the seafood curry so the waitress said she would wrap it up for me but she didn’t bring it back to the table even when the dessert and coffee were served. I thought it was odd but I have gone to restaurants that they kept the leftovers up front with the hostess so I didn’t say anything. When we got ready to leave, the hostess didn’t have my food so they went looking for the waitress. She said she forgot and ran to the back. Five minutes later she came back with a box inside a bag, apologized for the oversight. The next day, I wanted to eat the seafood curry with the rice I just cooked. When I opened the box, it was not seafood curry! Instead, there was a fillet of fish with mushrooms and polenta. The waitress gave me someone else’s leftover. I threw the fish away but I was annoyed! I wanted the seafood curry for lunch!!

The atmosphere and service couldn’t have been better. Our table by the fire must have been the most romantic and cozy spot in the restaurant, exactly what I had requested. Our food was good but not memorable or delicious. I would return for the atmosphere and service, not for the food. The menus could be more creative.

We have enjoyed going to the Milton Inn twice now. We will continue to come back! The food has been cooked to our satisfaction each time! My husband has gotten the lamb special each time and loves it! The food is not only cooked perfectly but it also tastes great! My favorite dessert is the peanut butter delight! Also feel relaxed and catered to the entire time. When we arrived we were greeted by a couple young ladies who smiled, took our coats and seated us right away. We had Cheryl and she did a great job spacing out the food so nothing overlapped and also never rushed our decisions and answered all the questions we had. Our glasses were always full and table cleared off properly. We had another great experience here!
