The oyster shooters in this tiny little maritime establishment just bring this indescribable grin to your face, especially when they land all over your face if you're not paying attention. Great beers, diverse foods and very attentive wait staff despite wall-to-wall people on a Valentines Day. Imagine the sailors that have come and gone thru the back door......

This is my favorite place for a nice dinner in Annapolis. Middleton Tavern consistently delivers whether it's a romantic dinner or oyster shooters with friends at the bar.

Steamed mussels are the best, along with the discounted wine prices during Happy Hour. The atmosphere is intimate, warm & inviting.

Middleton Tavern has lots of seating to enjoy the music upstairs ....or just relax downstairs or in the sidewalk seating. The libations are plentiful and the oysters are outstanding !!

Food was good, nothing to exceptional. Nice area. Great outdoor seating. Very busy as it is central to the Naval Academy and downtown Annapolis shops.

Went here with friends and family for Christmas day dinner. They had added a couple of tables in the bar area on the first floor and this was where they seated us. There were a lot of drunk people milling about our table, loud and obnoxious, bumping into our chairs, their rear-ends in our faces. It was terrible.

I love history and the fact that this Tavern was owned by the man who on the ferry that would bring George Washington back-and-forth means a lot. Also, being able to trace additional patrons of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin make this an even more unique spot. Dinner was relatively expensive but, not out of line. The crabcakes were out... More

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!
