This is one of the most respected restaurants in Middletown and the proprietors seem to take a real interest in their patrons. At 1:30 in the afternoon all the seats at the bar were occupied, my colleague said that this was a great place to make business contacts and I don't doubt it. The Stromboli that my friend ordered was... More

Went on Sunday afternoon for a return trip, first trip enjoyed the sausage grinder. Waitress was very slow for service, meal was dry. Disappointed after much anticipation of having a delicious sandwich and a nice afternoon lunch.

We went to First and Last over the weekend and we were very disappointed. Although our waitress was friendly, she didn't inform us of any specials (we happened to see the board on the way out, after our meal) and she neglected to bring oil for our bread. These issues were minor compared to the problems we had with our... More

My family discovered First and Last Tavern last year when I was visiting nearby Middlesex Hospital for an appointment. We asked one of the nurses for a good place for lunch that was not fast food. She recommended First and Last and it was perfect. They start out with hot focaccia bread that could be a meal on its own.... More

My husand and I decided to pick up a pizza after the movies and went to First and Last since we hadn't been to one in a long time. I was very disappointed. The pizza is mediocre with a flavorless crust. The toppings were generous and the wait staff very pleasant, but $32.00 for a large pie is way too... More

I went with a group of four on a Wednesday night. The host and waitstaff were very pleasant and friendly and we were sat with no problem. The bread you get at the table is delicious. Anywho, we ordered beers and a few pizzas. The Napolitan is DELICIOUS. We finished eating, and that's where things went downhill for me. I... More

We've only been to the First and Last Tavern one time while on a short stay in Middletown but my wife and I were pleasantly pleased with both the atmosphere and the quality of their food. We had the shrimp pizza and a few brews and were happy with both. Actually, the shrimp pizza was the best we ever had!.... More
