We were visiting the Asheville area with friends. Had a great dinner at Miltons on a Saturday evening. Food was delicious and service was outstanding. We were seated outdoors on a lovely evening (started to rain as we left). The waitress recommended a few appetizers which were very tasty. Her main course recommendations were also excellent. Will return again if in area.

My wife and I have dined here several times since pandemic as the outside seating area is great. We go on Thursday night for “burger night” where a burger, fries and a beer cost $13. A good deal for sure. However, every time the staff seemed puzzled when we asked for ketchup. It takes them from 10 to 15 minutes to serve ketchup in little cups. What’s up with this? Burgers and fries deserve ketchup. The other issue I have occurred at our last dining. The waitress announced the $13 dollar deal but when my bill came it was $15 per burger deal. I didn’t question it this time as we had another couple with us and it had been a lovely evening. Wait staff should be trained better than to announce one price and charge a higher amount on the check. If only the management would realize ketchup goes with burgers and fries and deliver it at the same time of the entree. One should not have to ask and wait.

Milton's was an outstanding dining experience. The food was excellent and the service A+++. We ordered something that we had never had before, just to try something new. Unfortunately, it was not something that complimented our tastes. We shared this with our server and he was so very gracious. Then the dining room manager came by our table and assured us that we would not be charged. Very customer friendly !! We will return!!

A very nice dining experience. Hostess was friendly. Our server was excellent...explained the menu items well, kept a close eye on our table without being overbearing, enjoyable. The menu had creative seasonal choices and was well prepared and at a good pricepoint. We'll definitely return when in the area.

We placed our order and when the food came out we didn't have any utensils asked for that and napkins just go the utensils no napkins. The waffle was overdone but the chicken was very good. Our appetizer came out after the meal only because we had to ask for it. Not very attentive they weren't busy. Disappointed

Each time we dine here it improves ! We had Fred as our server again which is always a delightful experience and this time I tried the NC Flounder with greens and it was delicious the seasoning perfect. We were with friends from our home town New Orleans and we are not easy to please, they thoroughly their fried chicken, hanger steak, and flounder . Thank you again for a lovely evening .

The company out of Atlanta that bought the Monte Vista Hotel from the family that owned it has taken this place to a much different level. The restaurant, which is now called Milton’s, has gone even to a higher level with both food and service that is fantastic. The new general manager came to the property from the Grove Park Inn and he is giving them a run for their money on a smaller, more intimate scale.
My wife and I ate there two nights in a row, while visiting Black Mountain to go fly fishing and we may go back again tonight. She had the corn meal crusted flounder the first night and a blade roast the second night and couldn’t decide which was better. I had the hanger steak the first night and didn’t hesitate to order it again the second night. Absolutely incredible both nights. If we go back tonight I may try the rabbit.
Our server Fred was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and was very attentive without hovering. A hard balance to strike, but he did a great job. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about him.
Overall a very wonderful experience and we will be coming here every time we come back to town.

My husband and I just celebrated our 29th anniversary at Milton's as part of our stay at The Monte Vista Hotel. It was wonderful! The setting in the sunroom was perfect (and safely spaced for COVID), the service was polished and friendly, and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the ribeye. We shared a carrot cake for dessert. This was our second time dining at Milton's and it's one of our favorite restaurants in Black Mountain. I'm already looking forward to our next visit to Black Mountain, to our stay at The Monte Vista, and to our next meal at Milton's!

The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. The fried chicken is the best around. The pork chop was excellent. A nice touch is the corn bread with sweet butter, chow chow and my favorite, jalapeño jelly. It’s always a pleasure to dine at Milton’s.

Phyllis and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Milton's at the Monte Vista hotel. We started with appetizers--Phyl had an amazing baked eggplant with rich tomato sauce and I had the tasty tomato tart. For dinner I had the delicious shrimp and grits and Phyl had the Steelhead Trout special which was outstanding. The chef here has wonderful flavor profiles down to the cornbread with three condiments (honey butter, jalapeno jam, and chow chow). We also enjoyed Brunch on Sunday which was so good. We can't wait to return to Black Mountain, NC and enjoy the wonderful food at Milton's.

Beautiful old building with high ceilings and wood floors. We sat out back on the spacious brick patio under an arbor. Fleetwood Mac played as background music, to our delight. The coffee surprised us, as we are snobby espresso drinkers and don't expect much from restaurant drip coffee, but it was smooth and full bodied. The food was rich and fresh, with real southern sausage gravy and farm greens. There seemed to be an issue with one of the waitstaff in our section disappearing and overburdening the remaining waiter, but management stepped in and smoothed it out tactfully. You can tell this is a well cared-for business and they were intent on giving their patrons a good experience.

the whole dining experience was wonderful! everything was delicious although the desserts were not as good as the appetizers/salads/entrees. the service was great..staff courteous and helpful. the only issue we had was our table was not far from the bar area and the clientele became extremely loud at one point! the staff should have done something about it. in the future, we will ask for a table further away. we feel some type of screening such as a decorative folding screen should be put in place when seating folks in that area.

otherwise it was a great evening-our 55 wedding anniversary. we will definitely dine there again and would recommend to our friends.

The food was outstanding. They put us back in the corner though and left the door open for flies to come in. The table needed to have something out under one of the legs so it didn’t rock so I did that myself. Go for the food but don’t expect anything else special.
