The to go is horrible. The food is cold and the soup is the same. Very expensive. You want go Jewish deli... More

We should have tried a seafood restaurant--it looks like there are quite a few in Solana Beach. We were FORCED to eat here--after spending the day at the SD Zoo there was no way we were going to sit in traffic back to LA so we came here. Tiny sandwich. Delicious corned beef, yes. But tiny. Microscopic. Mini. I had... More

My husband and I had eaten here several years ago and loved the dill pickles because they were mild and not as bold as they can be. We decided to go back but, were not as impressed this time. The waiters were nice and the service was good but, the food was not as good as before. The pickles had... More

This is a great place to eat!!! The menu is extensive, and they serve breakfast all day long. The sandwiches are huge, and I had the biggest burger I have ever had in my life! The Banana pudding is to die for! I wish they had one in northern California!

The sign a of a great restaurant is when you go back 2 and 3 times, and try to find excuses to go for lunch and dinner. Quality of food and service was excellent. Had one of the best bagels ever, let my wife loose in bakery and she found some goodies, Quality food and great service, look forward to... More

If I lived in Del Mar, I'd be on a first name basis with the staff at Milton's, I'd be there that often! Great corned beef sandwich, chicken soup, chopped liver sandwich. Good selection of beer. We ate here twice the week we stayed in Del Mar and loved every minute. Some bakery we took back to the hotel was... More

Milton's has an extensive menu with Deli items and full course meals. A half sandwich costs $11 and is more than ample. They have a full deli counter for take out items. The servers have been there a long time and are very competent.
