Historic tavern

It is fun to be dining in a tavern that has been entertaining for a couple of hundred years but don't expect much above average for food. Sitting outside is the best as there is always lots to look at on Market Space!

We ate outside on the deck. Service was quick and professional. Food is good and consistent. Not overpriced. It is great fun sitting outside and watching people. Middletons is an Annapolis icon not to be missed.

Salad tasted like soil, Prime Rib was made with a horrible Asian sauce/spice and the decor is horribly creepy. Tower for two was overpriced and the crab cakes full of crumbs instead of crab. A raccoon, a roaster and a fish walked into a hole, they never came back.

Great food, decent prices for the area. Service was off a bit, however, we would return again. Sandwiches were piled high and presented well. Tea in plastic cups were way overpriced! We enjoyed the outside dining porch.

Mom and I went to lunch here on a Friday afternoon. It was not crowded inside, just a few families and couples. However the tables are almost uncomfortably close, since the dining area is not that large. (Does have a larger bar area.) . The decor and ambiance was to mom's liking, circa old...with old pots/pans hanging over the fireplace,... More

This is a must see place while in Annapolis. Its history is very cool with noted visits from George Washington and other founding fathers. They have a pamphlet with the history that is pretty cool. The food and drinks were very good and the atmosphere is great

We stopped in on a Friday night for a bite to eat. What a mistake. I think that one would like this place if you were already drunk. I ordered the crabcake sandwich and I have to say that best thing on the plate was not the cold congealing French fries, but the pickle. The crabcake was mushy and mostly... More

A quick late lunch turned into a slow meal in this popular restaurant in a historic building by the harbor. The stacked tomato caprese ($9.95) was attractively plated: a whole tomato sliced crosswise and layered with fresh mozzarella cheese and basil. The bowl of Maryland-style crab soup ($7.50) looked skimpy, as if a cup-size serving had been poured into a... More

We almost walked past this place bc it looked so cramped and full. One person eventually went in and we got a table for 8 rather quickly by pure luck. To get in you have to go up one step and then two cramped doors which was a challenge with two little strollers. Once inside there was more room. Food... More
