The tavern is in a great location in downtown Annapolis and just a stones throw from the Naval Academy. The food is okay and the atmosphere as well. It was too cold to sit outside but it would be a great place to sit and people watch in the summer. The waitress was friendly but then disappeared for a while... More

Sit out side they have a great menu, I'm a tourist but unlike the whiney tourist that populate this site, it was an absolute delight to sit outside watch the people go by, have a bunch of apps and share an entree. I warned my waitress ahead of time my tips start high and if you can keep my heineken... More

Horrible service! 20 Minutes at the table and never even saw a waitress. Should have read other reviews before going and would have seen many negative reviews about service! We eventually just walked out with-out even a glass of water! What a shame, because I heard they won some sort of award for best Steaks in Annapolis!

It is so disappointing to see that two restaurants within blocks of each other have exactly the same menu- how lazy can a proprietor be to own both OBriens and Middleton and not provide different menus or at least food befitting such a marvelous location- guess they cater to the no repeat tourist crowd

Middleton's is full of history. The building is full of small spaces and a big room. The food is great. Try their mussels or their pork dishes, as well as almost anything on their menu. Service is great too. Be sure to check out their piano bar nights upstairs. Great fun!

Why, why, why didn't I look at the Trip Advisor reviews before choosing a restaurant??? I asked a merchant in town where we were buying a sweatshirt for a friend. He highly recommended it for a great seafood selection (not!) and food (again, not!) The service was fine. The food was not. The Maryland Crab soup is a red based... More

I'm not sure if they were just off on the day after Christmas or they just weren't ready for the crowds that Virginia Tech brought to the Military Bowl, but the service and food were terrible. After we ordered our food, it must have taken close to an hour before those who ordered soup, salad or appetizers to get their... More

Stay away! Middleton's was once the gem of downtown Annapolis. No more! In my 56 years I cannot ever remember a more indifferent, more innattentive, ruder service staff, including even the bus staff. After a 30 minute fiasco trying to get the attention of ANYONE on December 23rd, we finally were seated. The place was virtually empty except for the... More

My wife and I enjoy the fine dining establishments in Annapolis and decided to eat Christmas dinner at Middleton's. From srtart to finish this meal was a disaster. At 7:30p it wasn't as busy as we expected. After the appetizer we decided on the Chateaubriand, their signature dish, rare. It wasn't cooked. It wasn't seared, no crust. No seasoning. No... More
