This place is so amazing that we hosted our wedding dinner here. We are the type that are spoiled by growing up North eating places in Chicago like Ruths Chris and Ditkas regularly. This not only competes, it surpasses. I'm not really a seafood person but those we have taken to Middle Grounds that are when in town visiting are so impressed that they want to go back the next night for more seafood. My husband and I LOVE the filet. Somehow fancy but not pretentious, this place is hands down amazing. I know we will celebrate many special occasions at Middle Grounds, as well as just popping in last minute for a Saturday night date.
