Step back in time and experience one of Long Island’s hidden treasures…Milleridge Inn (585 N. Broadway, Jericho). You will forget the hustle and bustle of the island while you dine from American set-price menus served in a fireplace-adorned Colonial home amid a small village of shops.
For generations, more than 80 years, families have made a tradition of dining at the iconic Milleridge Inn in Jericho. The Long Island staple continues to offer delicious, classic American cuisine, coupled with special seasonal delights (Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc).
Not much has changed about the Inn. It’s as timeless and quaint as our grandparents remember it to be. It has distinct old-world charm and is comfortable and relaxing.
The compound includes a banquet hall (The Cottage) and the quaint shops and services (bakery, general store, cafe, Christmas Shoppe and candy store). Milleridge Inn continues to offer dine-in, take-out, catering and banquet services.
If you have returned to dining out, stop by the Inn and remember all of the reasons you have loved this place since you were little. If you have never been, it is a must-dine establishment on Long Island; add it to your list.
Here are some of our favorites on the Milleridge Inn menu:
Popular cocktails on the current menu include the Orange Creamsicle and the Coco Loco Martini. The Creamsicle is made with delicious Absolut vanilla vodka, Amaretto, orange juice and a fresh slice of orange. ($14).
Italian Popcorn is a peculiar menu item until you try it and then wonder how you have never consider this to be a must in your life. The fried gnocchi is seasoned with parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar. It’s crunchy ($14).
Poutine short ribs has a base of French fries that are then topped with shredded short ribs, gravy and cheese. Don’t eat it alone because it could be a meal all by itself. Share it or order as your entree. Depending on how dressed you like your fries, go ahead and order a side of gravy to dip or pour over ($15).
The wedge salad is a fresh, generous hunk of iceberg lettuce, Beefsteak tomatoes, Applewood smoked bacon and creamy blue cheese ($19).
Try the Chicken Milleridge, a boneless breast of chicken filled with ham and Alpine Swiss cheese with Marsala sauce ($34)…think of a blend between Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chicken Marsala.
Or the unbelievably delicious Lamb Osso Bucco—slow braised lamb shank with rosemary au jus and a sautéed wild mushroom and creamy polenta ($28). This shank is beautifully presented and is tender, fall-off-the-bone good.
Warm apple strudel with golden raisins and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, the drizzled with caramel is sure to hit the spot ($8).
Grilled cheese, chicken strips, pasta and macaroni and cheese are offered as kids’ portioned menu items ($12-14).
There is plenty of parking to accommodate multiple events happening on the property, including dining, village and banquet activates.
