Milner's American Southern
Milner's American Southern is a family operation, which means that whether they're Oprah or just an everyday diner, visitors are almost guaranteed to meet a member of the Milner family.
The most prominent of those are co-owners Buddy and John. Since establishing the Winston-Salem restaurant in 2005, the brothers have also helmed the kitchen. Here, they pay tribute to their local upbringing with a selection of refined southern fare complemented by an award-winning wine list and plenty of craft cocktails. Read on to learn more about the menu's standout items.
- Small plate: Diners can whet their appetites with Milner's buttermilk-fried oysters, a tasty starter accompanied by a cake made of grits and pimento cheese, Milner Brother's bacon, tomato butter, and jalapeño jam.
- Salad: Crispy fried chicken, cornbread, black-bean-and-corn relish, tomatoes, red onions, and buttermilk ranch dressing form the restaurant's decidedly southern fried-chicken salad.
- Entree: The Camel City frogmore stew is packed with flavor, thanks to a medley of seafood—shrimp, mussels, whitefish, scallops—plus Surry sausage, hominy, and baby corn, in a savory broth that blends amber ale with tomatoes and herbs.
- Dessert: The sumptuous white-chocolate-and-almond bread pudding is drizzled in caramel sauce and accompanied by a scoop of vanilla-bean ice cream for a sweet conclusion to meals.
- Drink: The New Fashioned, a twist on a classic cocktail, blends Angel's Envy bourbon with housemade smoked-peach bitters, brown-sugar simple syrup, and a touch of ginger ale.
