About North Georgia

Miltons Restaurant, In a 150-year old farmhouse
Best described as contemporary American Cuisine with a southern flair, Milton's opened with little fanfare under Jay Pollock in August, 2006. Word of mouth spread the news of this new North Fulton restaurant quickly to the point that reservations are strongly suggested, especially on weekends.

In 2008 Executive Chef Boyd Rose took the helm and reworked the menu, leaving some of the favorites but adding his own specialties.

Today, Executive Chef Derek Dollar utilizes fresh, local ingredients to enrich your palette with bold flavors of regionally inspired comfort food.

Although technically in the city of Alpharetta, we always consider the restaurant to be part of Crabapple, Georgia, one of the first towns in present-day North Georgia. It predates both Roswell and Atlanta by a number of years.

The upscale village of Crabapple is home to a number of excellent restaurants including Milton's, whose name is taken from Milton County, the original name for North Fulton. Originally home to Mr. John B's, the 150-year old farmhouse is large and rambling, but divided into smaller rooms which helps make Milton's more personal. An expansive deck makes an excellent choice for dining, especially in the Spring and Fall.

Derek Dollar combines a number of traditional favorites with some new touches that make even the mundane dishes seem new. For example, Charleston Crab Bisque has a unique, spicy flavor with plenty of crab. Salads run from an iceberg garnished with bacon jerky, tomatoes and buttermilk-blue cheese dressing if desired to a Caesar's, but our favorite is the Spinach Salad baby spinach tossed with dried cherries, toasted almonds, tart apples in
a sherry–bacon vinaigrette and topped with warm brie dressing for a tasteful treat.

Milton's offers a variety of dishes within the menu. The Pasta dish changes nightly, but if the chef has the ingredients you want, he will make anything you ask for. We recently had shrimp with tomatoes and spinach which was a surprisingly good dish. Most chefs, in my humble opinion, add too much spinach and cover the flavor of other ingredients, but not at Milton's. The pasta was served hot and spicy, but only the most sensitive palettes would have to avoid this temptation. Another treat is the pork chop, soaked in brine and stuffed with gouda cheese and andouille sausage served on whipped potatoes with french green beans.


One of the dishes Milton's retained from the old menu is the shrimp and grits, an intriguing combination of large grilled shrimp, moist and full of flavor, with cheese grits that have some bacon added for contrast. Milton's chicken dish is a traditional southern fried breast, spiced up with a wondrous andouille red-eye gravy. We also have had each of the steak offerings, the most tender being the Filet Mignon served medallion-style.
