Magnificent from start to finish! The food was amazing and the chocolate torte was to die for! Our server, Karoline, was friendly, knowledgeable and very welcoming! She was outstanding!
The manager, Curt, was affable and fun to talk to. He made us feel welcome and special. We can't wait to return and next time not only will we eat at this superb restaurant, but we will book a room at the hotel and explore all Black Mountain has to offer!

Miltons was fantastic we will be back. Service was top notch, professional helpful and warm.
Food was great no complaints, Janet steak was delicious. Appetizers deviled eggs and pickled shrimp were awesome!
We sat in indoor porch area, was private enough but still lively, and had very nice character. Loved our experience

Server was only good thing, she was very good. Overall very slow service from bar to kitchen. After waiting over hour for dinner, server informed us of kitchen problem, obviously. Earlier notice might have eased pain. But pain got worse when fish dish arrived not as ordered but tasted good. Rabbit dish was not good and not prepared as described. At least they removed rabbit dish from bill, but not a good way to celebrate a special event

We enjoyed this place. Good atmosphere, charming and a good variety on the menu. Their wine list is weak though which is why I did not give 5 stars. I do wish they would improve and increase wine options but our food was delicious and we will definitely go there again.

Hard to find a vegetarian entree; Pasta would have been too much; But... They accommodated nicely and made a mixed veg sides bowl that worked out great. Dino Kale salad was a hit too. As was the Pimiento cheese. You get the drift.

First time eating at Miltons and it was very good. Not many people there so a nice quiet atmosphere to meet our friends. Did not drink it alcoholic beverage this time but they had a good selection but the food was very good.

Food was great except one in our party had the rabbit and dumplings. Seemed more like soup and could have had a little more rabbit. The other entrees were all fabulous. Kids chicken tenders, roast and fried chicken.

Seating felt like sitting in a hotel lobby vs a restaurant but the food and service more than made up for it.

Bartender made a really really good Manhattan.

And despite not having room we were glad to have ordered pecan pie!!

Went for a Sunday Brunch. Service was great. Food was just ok. Not worth the price. Will say the Bloody Mary was one of the best I have had. Might try again. Or just go drink Bloody Mary's!

After missing out on our anniversary night back in January and being out of town a lot we finally made it back to our favorite restaurant in Black Mountain. Staff was very welcoming and our trout dinners were delicious. Looking forward to another date night at Milton’s.

We came for the Valentine's Day Special.
On paper it looked great, however it's execution was disappointing.

We were seated in the banquet room where the ambient noise level was high.
Not a deal breaker, but not the romantic dinner spot we were hoping for.

We opted for the shrimp appetizers, there were 6 good size shrimp for 2 people.
That was good, but it seemed a couple more might have been better.

The next course was a mushroom and cheese item. Ours was served cold in the middle and warmed up on the outside, obviously pulled from the oven too soon. Mine had an extra portion of crust, from another plate. Not much loving there...

My wife had the steak, I had scallops.

The steak was very tender and the portion was good.

I received my plate with 3 scallops, they were very good, however, for $45 per plate, I would have expected a better portion. Most restaurants have at least 4 on the plate.

Then there was desert, we ordered the berry crumble, what we received was a scoop of what appeared to be pie filling with a few crumbs of vanilla wafer on top.
Dismal at best, we didn't eat it, the waitress didn't question why.

We expected a decent dinner for $89 for 2.
What we were served was small portions of hastily prepared banquet food.
I understand there are challenges with Covid for restaurants, however, there is no excuse for this.

In an area known for great cuisine, there is no reason to ever return.
