Historic Tavern Worth a Visit

Located right in the waterfront area, very old tavern full of interesting stuff. Came in for drinks and bar was full so asked waitress if we could take a table in bar area. Answer was sure, except no wait service and if table was needed for eating guests we would have to move. Worked for us and... read more

My wife and I come here frequently and we share the steamed mussels and a 1/4 pound of steamed shrimp. We always ask for the mussels to be more done. Great flavor, and filling. Only drawback is they serve this stale bread for dipping. Had better bread elsewhere.

After a tour of the Naval Academy, this was the perfect stop for beverages. The guys enjoyed a local beer and the gals went for hot beverages. A lovely location with lots of history. We'll be back for a meal.

My wife and I met another couple for dinner at Middleton, because they suggested it. When we arrived, we only waited a few minutes for water. But after about 15 minutes, I had to get up to ask about drinks. Unacceptable, considering we were sitting near the bar. At least the head bartender seemed concerned. But our server, Vince, was...

Lived or visited Annapolis since the late '70's - have never eaten here until now. Stopped for dinner on a MON evening after the football game. Had the option to split plates, so we had the crab cakes. Very good. They also have seasonal outdoor (covered) seating.

Dinner was delicious! I recommend the Rock Fish, hubby the New York Strip. Cooked exactly as asked. Only suggestion is that if u are serving a $40 glass of cognac it should be in snifter. 😊

My office just had our holiday party there in the piano room upstairs in the Tavern. I was really happy to find a spot to have our small office party at on such short notice. The food was good and the staff was very friendly & helpful. You can definitely tell that this is one of the historic places of... More
