My sister recommended this restaurant and I had lunch here today with a friend. Great staff - very welcoming and hospitable - nice selection of menu items - we both enjoyed our picks - burger and a wrap. Kudos to Midtown Eats!

My husband saw their great reviews while we were checking another restaurant on trip advisor. It is the best 'hole in the wall' place I have ever seen. It is small, but I think if he expanded it wouldn't be the same. We enjoyed interacting with the staff and owner. Brianna, our server was wonderful.. We really enjoyed meeting her... More

Mark Baldwin, the proprietor of Midtown Eats, has created a very special local restaurant. It is evident that a lot of time and care has been put into the creation of Midtown Eats. While it is located in a underutilized strip mall, don't let its looks fool you. The food is always fresh and the specials are constantly changing. The... More

We stopped by here for brunch and have now found a new brunch spot. The service was quick and friendly. I asked for bacon instead of eggs for my dish, preparing to pay extra, and they did it with no extra charge or fuss. When the food came, I was very surprised to find a huge pile of bacon. I... More

For the geocacher - there are several close by! I had wanted to try this a few days ago but got stopped by events and came a little after noon. There aren't a large number of seats, but all of the tables were either occupied or not cleared (only one of those) but there was a seat at the counter... More

First time at this place but not the last. They normally open at 11:00 so I was prepared to sit in the car for 20 minutes. As I approached the door I noticed they were open, the owner had decided on a whim to open for breakfast. My wife really enjoyed her breakfast sandwich and hash browns, I had the... More

Midtown Eats isn't much to look at from the parking lot. However, the appearance is deceiving. There isn't much room to sit, but the food is amazing! Plus the helpings are quite large. This is a great place to get lunch.

We just had lunch at Midtown Eats. The salmon wrap on special was amazing. Thai wrap and chicken sandwich were great. Not the food you expect in the strip mall (behind the Burger King) setting. they could easily charge twice as much in a downtown setting. Met the chef and sounds like a paella wrap may be coming soon -... More

Just got back from lunch at Midtown Eats. Amazing! Cozy place (8 tables-4 seats per). Friendly service. Welcoming chef! I had club wrap ($9) pork loin, chicken, lettuce, tomato, cheddar with a side of delicious dill potato salad. Hubby had cypress chicken wrap (great balsamic dressing, chicken, lettuce, olives, feta) $8 with a side of Asian slaw. We also sampled... More

Midtown Eats is a small diner. The food features original recipes, fresh local food and decent prices. Service is good, but waiting for food comes into play when the place gets really crowded. Chef Mark takes pride in each dish. You can't go wrong with burgers, summer wraps or shrimp BLT. The Ruben is classic. The Cuban is wonderful. Specials... More
