This was our 3rd time this year and it only gets better with each visit. We went on a Sunday evening for the Anniversary Special and it was wonderful! The combination of the fabulous food, impeccable service, and historic setting create not just a dinner but a lovely and romantic event! We are already planning our next visit. Special thanks...

I made a reservation for my husbands special 65th birthday and requested a table in the hearth room by the fireplace. I made it for early at 6:30 on a non busy day. When we got to the restaurant the hostess took us to a different room. I asked her for the hearth room that we had made the reservation... More

We have been enjoying birthdays, anniversaries, other special occasions here for more than 20 years and have never been the least bit disappointed. Our most recent visit was a Sunday evening and was excellent as usual. Our server, Sarah, was delightful and knowledgeable about the evening's specials as well as the standard menu items. My husband had Cream of Crab... More

The old inn will make satisfy any fan of historical buildings. It has all sorts of fun, quaint dining rooms, including one with a huge stone fireplace. Some very intimate spaces. The food was a pleasant surprise. Beef Tartare was excellent, the French Onion Soup had a rich, deep flavor, and the pork tenderloin was exceptional- the wilted spinach and... More

This was a second visit. First visit a 5. Second visit lacked on: 1. underpoured wine. 2.crabcake was overmixed and cool compared to rest of plate. 3. Other patrons were given a "complimentary appetizer". We didn't receive any. Guess we didn't look snobby enough. 4. Bread was hard. Butter was hard. My first visit we were given a fresh baked...

My wife and I had our Valentine's Day dinner here. In reviewing the Valentine's Day menu and comparing it to their regular menu, we found that there was only one combination of items that would cost as much as their prix fixe price ($100/p). That was disappointing in that unless one ordered that particular combination of items, you were paying... More

I grew up in Timonium and have known about the Milton Inn for 40+ years but as an adult I never had a desire to dine there. Partly I guess is that over the years I have heard multiple mixed reviews that it was very expensive, way overpriced, everything was a la carte …but the ambiance was nice as the... More

My wife and I went out for dinner on a Saturday night. This was during the Baltimore County restaurant week during which they offer a prix fixe menu - $35.17 for three courses. The MIlton Inn can be quite pricey, and so this was quite a welcome offer and made the evening a great value. The food was absolutely delicious.... More

Went here for my anniversary. Had reservations, but still had to wait for close to an hour before being seated. The atmosphere was very nice but just a little bit crowded for my taste.

The Milton Inn, a 273 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!
