Softshell crab BLT sandwich with avocado. Sit outside.

Had the soft-shell crab BLT with avocado. Recommend. Friend had the Lobster roll, tasty, but highly seasoned. Fries were also very good. Service good. Sit outside if a table is available. Very enjoyable.

Place smells unpleasant but is really old! Sat at bar for Happy Hour. Bartender looked tired and seemed disinterested. No big deal. Had 4 raw oysters, two large and two really small. Nice presentation and freshness made this something we'd reorder. They were $1.50 each. Then we ordered the steamed shrimp , a special, for $5, which turned out to... More

We went for lunch yesterday and the place is in shambles. We ordered the fried green tomatoes parm style. They were flavorless and burnt. I ordered the sliders with cheese. They came out with no cheese and the fries tasted like they were leftover from the day before. This is after waiting 20 minutes for our food. The place is... More

Visited for dinner on a Saturday night. Our server was mediocre at best. He was nice and polite, but slow and thoughtless; he was obviously overwhelmed. The restaurant is filthy and noisy with doors slamming. Stay out of the bathrooms! The clam chowder tastes like it came from a can and the crab cakes were mushy and tasteless. All the... More

This is our go to place in down town Annapolis ! The table side made spinach salad is outstanding ! We've been coming here for 10 plus years and have never had a bad meal ! If you can sit outside the view of the town square and water is fantastic.

For the most part the food is above average but nothing to write home about. I added crab to my salad and it was just a dusting of crab. The crab cakes are excellent and they are worth stopping for.

This restaurant has been here forever but the staff is friendly, the interior is a walk through history and the food is very good.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning. Thought breakfast in Annapolis would be a nice start. Wanted to go to Iron Rooster, but wait was 40 plus minutes. We didn't want to wait and thought we'd give Middleton Tavern a try. Boy was that not a good decision. We sat inside so we wouldn't have to wait for a free table... More

We came to Annapolis for the day and tried the Tavern for breakfast/lunch. The oyster casino (Savannah oysters) were delicious and the omelettes were very good.

My father and I stopped here to enjoy a drink. We loved the historic atmosphere. There was a good drink menu. We sat at the bar. My dad was excited keno was available. Story has it the place is haunted. A glass did break on its own while we were there. The place does get very crowded and the man... More
