Fun special occasion place for many decades. Friendly yet expert staff. Traditional menu, but with updates. Overall excellent. Expensive, but it should be.

The food at the Milton Inn is always very good. Presentation beautiful, atmosphere lovely. The food is served on hot plates, however I had a steak and cake (fillet and crab cake with béarnaise sauce) and had to send my crabcake back because it was not hot. Concerning because when I placed my order The only request I made was to have my food very hot. Another member of our party order the same thing. They requested to have their fillet cooked medium. It was cooked medium well. They elected not to say anything about it, stated that although it was overcooked to their liking it still had great flavor. My fillet was cooked perfectly.

The Milton Inn is one of my favorite restaurants. The short ribs I had on my most recent visit were excellent. Our waiter (Tom) is always terrific, as are the other servers. The ambiance is cozy - I love the fireplace. Brian, the owner, pays attention to the details and it shows. I love this place!

I've always loved the Milton inn so I was excited to take my fiancé there for his birthday. Requested nice table not crammed next to people and was taken upstairs where the table next to us consisted of couple with toddler. So much for the romantic special ambiance. When waitress ( who never mentioned name) finally approached us, we had waited approximately 15 minutes and were ready to order appetizer and drink. She informed us in a very matter of fact condescending tone that that was not the way they did it. They preferred to take entire order at once. I said I'd like to get a drink but don't want to order one without a little food and she acted very put out but said she would check with the chef. We were so mad at this point we actually considered just walking out but when she came back and said they could make an exception, we decided to go ahead and order entire meal. My fiancé had a question about the short rib, whether it was on the bone and the waitress merely said, I don't know. Not " I'm sorry let me go check," but just I don't know. We ordered and ate and sat with dirty plates in front of us without her returning once to see if we needed anything. I finally flagged her and asked for the check to which she said oh do you want coffee? By then we just wanted to get the hell out of there and tell everyone to join us in never wasting our money there again. Ruined the night! Never felt so disrespected in a restaurant before.

Just very pricey for what you get....need to have some lighter options. Last two times we went were “stuck” in back room behind bar. Not near as nice as other rooms ...tight and small.

All n all, though, probs the nicest place in Baltimore Cnty for a special occasion dinner.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate Valentine's day, the service was impeccable, our waitress was attentive without smothering or hovering. The food arrived promptly and was hot and tasted delicious. The only downfall was that they had sold out of the dessert that we originally wanted but the one we chose was just as good. The atmosphere within the restaurant and outside was cozy and charming. 10/10 would definitely recommend to friends and family.

I was very disappointed in the seating arrangements. This restaurant is known for it's Victorian charm. We did not get to enjoy this as we were seated in a section of the restaurant that reminded me of a woodshed. The seating was too close & very inconvenient. We had to slide our table to the side in order for the people sitting next to us to go to the restroom. Our waitress had to lean across the table to serve my wife & the guest sitting next to us. A good potion of my night was spent leaning to my left in order to make room for the waitress as she was struggling to do her job. If this were my first experience at The Milton Inn, It would not have left a good impression. We did not enjoy our night at this restaurant for this special occasion.

The food was impeccable. Our server was very good, but she was the only one in our dining area (fireplace room), and so the wait was a little longer than we preferred. Also, we waited quite awhile from appetizer to entree. The clams casino and oyster imperial were delicious for our appetizer. For our entrees, the rockfish and rack of lamb were succulent and very well presented. The lamb could have been hotter, but the taste was still wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant, but be aware that the service is a bit lacking with wait times a bit too long.

This was our first trip and very disappointing. Our server greeted us without a wine list or specials, both of which he had to retrieve separately. By itself, these are not a big deal, but it should have been an indication of things to come. The service overall was very slow. We like a slower pace, especially at this price point. The Prime Rib in Baltimore does it best, this was just slow, period. The Maryland Crab soup was very full of crab meat, but the vegetable broth was among the poorest tasting I have ever had. Once I finished the several lumps of backfire, I left the remainder of the soup. My Filet Chesapeake special, medium rare, was not of a high enough caliber to be served at Outback, and it was medium well at best. The crab cake was average. My wife's tuna was also very tasteless as were the short ribs another guest order. I will say that the rockfish special ordered by the fourth guest was very good and clearly the plate we should have all ordered.
I am really not that picky, my wife and I met as servers in a restaurant, but between the slow service and the lukewarm and mostly poor food, I cannot recommend this for a $450 dinner for four.

This was my first experience at the Milton Inn, and I would have to say it was very good, but not great. Although the food was cooked perfectly some of the side dishes lacked seasoning. My wife got the lobster tails with the cheese grits and I got the salmon with risotto and spinach. The grits were bland as was my risotto. A little bit of attention to the sides would have pushed my review to an outstanding but this was not the case. I got the macadamien torte for dessert which was delicious, but my wife got the vanilla bean creme brulee which was not up to par. I have made creme brulee many times using real vanilla bean and every time I've made it there was a trace of vanilla bean in every ramekin. It was evident that this was not the case at the Milton Inn. It felt like false advertisement to me. Going to a high end restaurant I was expecting a little more.

Had not been to this restaurant in at least 20 years but had previously gone for our anniversary dinner. I was happy to see a similar but updated version of the restaurant-perfect for a special occasion or a great meal. The restaurant week menu was a bargain. The menu prices are a bit high but you get what you pay for. We truly enjoyed our 32nd anniversary.

We had a lovely table right by the fireplace. The service started6 out great. Appetizer served. Not half way through appetizer,main course. While I was eating a server,not our server told me to get up,my chair was in the way. Standing up,chewing while he moved our table and my chair. We had to ask for the reminder to our bottle of wine to be served. The young man who serves the bread had to assist us. Lovely dinner,but, left feeling rushed,not relaxed.

We ate off the Restaurant Week menu on Sunday night and the food was outstanding. My wife had the chicken liver pate and filet; I had the mussels and pork tenderloin. The food was great and we both loved our choices. It was an unofficial anniversary for us and the waiter brought a delicious, sweet champagne to top of our visit. We'll continue to use the Milton Inn as a favorite for delicious meals.

When we arrived we were told that we didn't have a reservation. This is the second time in a year that this has happened. This time the hostess doubted my word that I had a reservation until I produced my OpenTable confirmation. 15 minutes later someone else from the staff came to our table and in front of all the guests to ask me to again produce the OpenTable confirmation. It was quite embarrassing. Chef Boston was rude and the manager was condescending. It doesn't much matter how good the food is when one is treated shabbily.

The Milton Inn is a classic place for fine dining. The ambiance is elegant, the service attentive, and the food excellent.

One caveat: if you don't like garlic, you need to ask whether there is garlic in anything you order. The filet, which is wonderful, can be ruined by the butter they put on top of it, which is highly flavored with garlic. Vegetables can come sauteed in garlic. Some forms of potatoes can have garlic in them. So ask in advance to avoid being surprised.

A wonderful by chance 'find' after a business meeting. Housed in a quaint, elegant 1740 Inn, the restaurant provided a superb lunch. We started with the Grilled Wild Boar Sausage (the house made cranberry chutney was superb). My son dined on the Grilled New Zealand Rack of Lamb while I enjoyed the Roasted Pork Tenderloin. Both were prepared as requested and the accomplishments were great (I particularly enjoyed the wilted spinach sauteed in garlic and olive oil). We wash the meal down with a couple glasses of Chateau La Cardonne. Simply, enjoyable.
