This was one of the finer seafood restaurants in town. The meals were tasty and the service was always prompt and friendly. Unfortunately the restaurant closed about three years ago. Many of the waitstaff found jobs in local area restaurants. This place will be missed.

Although i liked the SS Milton as one of our "everyday" restaurants, (the food was pretty good) it was closed last year and new the owners gutted and renovated the place to a much more impressive restaurant.

A very reasonably priced restaurant with a children's menu and a good selection of entrees. We sat in the enclosed porch (very windy that day), but they also have a nice deck in the front of the restaurant or you can eat in the old...More

Service was good enough, but the decor was cheap and the food virtually tasteless. After a longer-than-normal wait I had a pesto chicken-breast sandwich that did not have the slightest scent or flavor of basil or garlic. The chicken was apparently processed, and it was...More
