Great location, but that may be the cause of complacency..

The food is average, the prices are high, and the service was slow and disorganized, although the waitress tried hard. I had crab soup and it was watery and way less soup than $7.50 promised. Their soft shell crab BLT was very good. We had raw oysters and clams (excellent) but the white wine came... read more

Tons of places to choose and we were unlucky and chose this one. Liked the rustic setting and ambience, but the food was mediocre and the service was terrible. Maybe it was just our waitress, she seemed a little nonchalant and not educated on the etiquette of how to present pleasant hospitality. The crab cake sandwich my companion had was... More

This is a very busy little place but I whenever I am in town, we MUST eat here. Staff always works hard. Seafood is always VERY clean & tasty. Highly suggest coming here. Inside has cool, colonial feel. Outside nice to enjoy the view.

The Middleton came recommended by the Lowes concierge . They took reservations. They were going to seat us inside , the atmosphere was damp and musty. We were going to leave but the found a table outside, albeit very cramped. The food was ok and the service average. I would not return.

I have been to the place for so many time. The fresh seafood from raw oysters, steamed clams, mussel, crab balls and more. If you are in Annapolis area you should stop by You will have an awesome experience Ellen the bartender will make you a delicious cocktail or nice cold beer

I had lunch at the tavern and sat on their patio. Seating is on wooden benches so not too comfortable if you plan to stay a long time. It is pretty much pub fare for the food. The French Dip sandwich was decent and they had a good selection of beers on tap. Nice view of the harbor from the... More

We have made several trips to Annapolis over the years. So many places to choose from to eat. This was a second time eating here. Both times we felt the prices were high. The food was ok. We both had prime rib which was the special at $19.95 ea. That wasn't too bad of a price. They sat us a... More

Very cool restaurant dating back to 1700's. This is a place where some of our founding fathers would go. Food was good. Service was better. Prices were so. so.

I made two visits in two days to Middleton. The first visit was late afternoon for oysters and a locally brewed beer. The oysters were delicious--two varieties, one of which was sweet and the other salty. The horseradish and cocktail sauce served with them was nice and zippy. I returned with eight friends the next night for dinner. The entrees... More
