Just got some drinks at the bar, bartenders seemed a bit preoccupied but friendly when they finally came around, wife got the Ruby Finn which was very good! The bar seemed a little smaller than I envisioned here, but being one of the oldest restaurants in America and having that rustic charm, was a nice place for a drink.

I loved this place. I ate in the bar with the charming fireplace and TV's around. Friendly and interesting patrons. The menu had great variety and the fish was great. Also, most importantly, Frank the bartender was one of the best I've every had. He was the perfect combination of friendly, informative and engaging without being all in your business.... More

We had a group that kept growing, and our waitress in the bar was incredibly accomodating. Food and drinks all at different times and she was unfazed. We had a great time.

My friend and I flew in for a conference, and it was close to 9 when we arrived starving. Our food came out very quickly, and perfectly cooked. We both had the filets, and they were excellent! I also had black bean soup, which hit the spot! Our waiter was helpful, personable, and attentive. Casual, relaxed atmosphere. Something for everyone.

We had a very good experience. Service was great. The raw oysters were tasty and not over priced. The house ale was very good. My wife and I shared the smokehouse sampler. The sausage was very good, chicken was very tasty, the brisket was ok. The baked beans were excellent. We also shared the chocolate moose which was also very... More

Stopped in mostly in part to being such an old and historical spot. It is all that. Happy Hour prices were in effect so had the Middleton Ale-pretty tasty and a glass of Cab. We're from the South and this pub had a nice but crusty bartender. Didn't seem too big on tourists but didn't hurt our feelings. Overall the... More

We wanted a good, simple meal in a friendly spot with some character. The Middleton took care of us. Good oysters. Their house ale was good. Sandwiches tasty. Parents, kids and grandkid left happy and full.

We've been to Middletown for dinner on previous visits, but this visit we did brunch. The brunch menu was varied enough and each of the three of us found something to like. My wife started with a strong Mimosa and enjoyed it enough to warrant a 2nd. Our son had a pancake stack that was a generic stack. I had... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. The crab cakes were amazing and my husband loved the black bean soup. We had a very attentive waiter and found the restaurant charming. I later read some negative reviews which surprised me since we had a wonderful evening. We will definitely come back!

It just couldn't get any worse. The service was horrible. The food was even worse. Bland, overcooked and the place was filthy. So many places to eat in Annapolis, any of them would have been better.
