Great choices in drinks & food. The bar is always delightful. I had red snapper, friends had shrimp & grits, trout. All were satisfied. I gave service a high mark because I know you're a little short handed post-COVID. It will all be better when you are fully staffed.

The only thing I'd ask to be different is mosquito control on the back patio. Dining out there was perfect, but the mosquitos were noticeable and plentiful.

We'll be back, for sure.

Food was average. Prices were somewhat high for the quality and amount of food. Bread plates, but no bread(!) Flavors on entrees didn’t go together

Great location for Sunday brunch, especially if you're staying on premises, as we were. Husband loved the eggs Benedict, while I had the Brioche French toast with applewood-cured bacon. Delisious, and the service was great!

Outstanding food! Husband had the hangar steak and cleaned his plate. I had the trout and it was delicious. The cornbread with honey butter was a delicious starter. We skipped dessert but had the boozy coffee (since we were staying on premises), and it was great, as was the conversation on the back patio after dinner.

This was the first time we had dined at Milton’s. We were impressed by the quality of the food and nuanced flavoring of everything from the cocktails to dinner. Our server, Hunter, was excellent. We will be making this one of our go-to dining spots.

Such a great local restaurant! Charming and food is excellent. Love this place. The only thing I would critique them on is their limited wine menu. Wish they would add some interesting good quality wines especially reds. They don’t have to be pricey … there are lots of good wines that are reasonably priced.

The setting was amazing on a perfect late spring evening. We dined on the patio starting with Orange Blossom GT and the Smoked old Fashioned. Three of had the trout and our fourth had the red snapper. Delicious! The bread pudding and bourbon pecan pie were a great finish. The wait staff was attentive but not hovering. I could just hang out at bar.

Nice location in the Monte Verde Inn. We sat in the Garden Room which is full on natural light. Service was outstanding. We enjoyed the pimento cheese (just a little zesty) as an appetizer. The omelet with peppedews was very tasty and was cooked to order which for us is very firm and done through. Also we had the french toast which is recommended.

very comfortable atmosphere, nice staff(competent staff), good food. Our server (I'm sorry I forgot her name) was pleasant and attentive. With all the overrated restaurants out there, it's always nice to find one that is worth returning to. Miltons is one of those.

We are locals and we visit Milton's every chance we get. This was a delicious anniversary brunch, outdoors on the lovely patio, with wonderful service and all the ambiance we could ask for. Thank you! (And the locals discount is an extra nice new touch!)

This is a nice place to eat in Black Mountain.

Service was very good. Drinks were great. The food was good but the mushrooms with the hanger steak were overcooked. I was also given a iced teA that was cloudy and undrinkable. It was replaced with fresh as soon as I pointed it out.

Change in menu which is always nice for a change in season. However the food was not as good an earlier meal. A few wrinkles to work out with the recipes.

After a number of weeks of missing out on 'Burger Night' we made an outside table reservation for date night. What a lovely evening to dine outside on the patio. Burgers were excellent as always and the service was exceptional. An added highlight was the recent requirement to wear a face mask.

I thought I could live without ever eating cold acorn squash with custard baked in it, but I was horribly, horribly WRONG. My husband had the flounder which was perfection. The service was great and the atmosphere was outstanding, although we were grateful to be seated in the garden room as the music inside was a bit loud for conversation. The prices, though above our normal budget, were really reasonable for the quality of the food we received. (It was a treat for our anniversary.) The only .... surprise was that the butternut squash bisque had almost no butternut squash flavor in it. It was still DELICIOUS mind you - just wasn't what I expected. And we could've easily made a meal out of the corn muffins and wild berry jam that accompanied. The buffalo chicken sliders with pimento cheese app was spot on, and whatever drink it was that my husband got was yummy! Sorry I can't remember the name...it had bourbon and a cherry and a "king cube" in it.

We ate at Milton’s for Mother’s Day and loved the delicious brunch. Our only regret was that we were in the last seating and they were out of some of the dishes we had hoped to try. The cheesecake was however the best I have ever tasted and the pulled pork, sweet potatoes, collard greens and Individual pecan pies were all outstanding! We will be back.

Lovely place but late or last reservations does mean you may not get full buffet experience because its at the end and staff is ready to break down and kitchen was not serving all foods that were available to earlier reservations. Desserts were out except for cheese cake but the manager did bring a wonderful piece of carrot cake and he compt one of our meals. Great food that we did get and I will definitely go back and I will tell all my local friends about Milton's....!
