Whether you stop in for lunch or a drink, it's a nice venue with a pub feel that is not too noisy. The crab cakes are good, but very rich.

We are from PA, and often make the trip solely to visit Middleton and Mikes Crab House. We have never had dinner here, (so can't speak to that) but we always sit at bar and enjoy the seafood and food from the bar menu. One of The most interesting thing about this bar, is you invariably meet people and make... More

Mid after noon cocktails and the largest and best tasting Oyster Shooters. Largest meaning the oysters. Maryland at it's very best.

I really felt like it was an old timey tavern feel in there. Went on a weeknight after 10 for drinks so there was not much of a crowd. But they had a guy playing guitar (he was good!) and some pretty inebriated people around to entertain. The bartender was great, no nonsense. I had my first taste of natty-boh... More

Nice Historic Building. We were on top floor for a group dinner. Lots of stairs, not good for the older family with disabilities. Good thing the bathrooms were up there! Food was tasty, but my salad had something strange that could not be explained. Drink menu prices were reasonable and they had a nice selection. I understand the place is... More

Dined there with a friend. I had a pretty good salad customized to my preferences; friend ordered a burger reportedly unexceptional and a mixed drink that was reportedly very good. Sat outside at a very small table on warm evening. Server was busy, not very attentive, but courteous when he did show up. I expected better from Middleton's as I've... More

Stopped for an early lunch as they were opening. We both had the crab soup, which to me was mild. There was plenty of meat in it. We both had the signature Middleton Crab dish. It was above average. This place has a big reputation and I was underwhelmed.

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday evening. We asked to sit inside as there was an awful smell outside. Nice historic building but didn't seem very clean. You have to go up a lot of steps to get to the bathrooms so beware if you have any disabilities. Food was overpriced just because of the area and it was... More

Visited the Middleton Tavern for a late lunch at a non-peak time (2:45 PM). Sunny day so we asked to sit on the patio. The hostess put the six of us at a table for four. We asked to push over another table as we were squished and were told we could not do that (although there were many empty... More

The craft beer selection was sorta limited. If you get the pick 2 the salad and panini are regular size so you might want to share it.
