Middleton Tavern can be found in the historic down town section of Annapolis, located on the corner of Dock Street and Market Space, just before Dock Street turns into Pinkney. Middleton Tavern is in a 1740 Georgian building that originally was a private residence. The Georgian style of architecture was named in honor of the "four British kings named George,... More

My husband and I were visiting Annapolis for the first time, just for a day trip. We were looking for a good lunch spot and I wanted crab legs. We thought the few places near the water seemed "touristy" which we try to avoid. So we just started walking and decided to try this place. It's an old building and... More

Went in for dinner and they sat us in the bar side and so glad they did. We got there during happy hour and they had $5 Apps and drink specials. The food was good and so was the live entertainment!

The restaurant dates back over two hundred years old. Nice meal and great piano bar after the meal. I like sitting inside better than outside at this restaurant.

Busy Saturday afternoon. Had Maryland Crab soup, mussels and fries with orange chipotle. Mussels were great, service was perfect.

Love the piano bar upstairs! Too much fun! A great nightlife option. A group can gather around the piano and sing along. The piano player takes request. Did not try the food on this trip, but have eaten before and thought it was good.

we sat outside, hoping for a good view, what we got was truck/car exhaust the entire time :(; we had the mussels (just ok, nothing to brag about) and shared a soft shell crab BLT--this is good. Bathrooms are upstairs--would be difficult if you were ADA.

Any trip to Annapolis is not complete without a meal at Middleton Tavern. The food & service is top notch. All the crab dishes are excellent. We love this Annapolis institution for all it's history, delicious food and place to share good times with family & friends.

This is a nice spot and a good place to sit outside and people watch. But, that being said, the outside seating is tight and only one in each party really gets a good view. The service is a bit cavalier -- the hostess with a wave of the hand gave us our menus and told us to find our... More

Can only comment on the crab cakes which we ordered broiled. They were very good! The sides were also very appealing and the restaurant decor was also pleasant. We ate inside as the outside dining was crowded and it was a hot day. The menu was pricey but competitive with the other neighboring restaurants in downtown Annapolis.
