While visiting our son at WFU, we're always on the look-out for new tasty places to try. Milner's was really good on a chilly October evening. I had delicious pot-roast with yummy mashed potatoes...My husband had fried chicken...All dishes were yummy, filling and generous.

Dining room was attractive and quiet enough for easy conversation. Service was good. But, food was subpar. Crab cakes were mushy with a butter sauce that coagulated, unattractively, on the plate. Asparagus was super thin, stringy and tough. Mac and cheese came out hot but...More

Honestly the experience and food were decent enough, but the main reason I went to this restaurant was because trip advisor said that this place was vegan/vegetarian and I thought vegan vegetarian southern comfort food sounded interesting. It's not vegan or vegetarian. All the full...More

Based on its reviews I was expecting a great dining experience. Instead we got a quite average meal of trout, veggies & grits. I was also disappointed in the overall maintenance of the building. We sat by a window that had obvious wood rot. The...More

Milner's consistently serves excellent food. The service is professional and prompt. Although the prices are high, we eat at Milner's often, because Milner's always is great.
