Met a group of 10 friends, so 12 total, the day after Christmas. 4 of us arrived later and the waiter was obviously quite put out by this. The restaurant had a waitress, Mandy, handle us 4 and she was fabulous. Her attitude was very...nice and his was not. I had the tuna wontons and my husband had Maryland crab soup and French fries. The original group had ordered mussels as an appetizer and they were very tasty. I almost dinged this rating by a star due to his attitude toward us, but felt that would be unfair. Mandy more than made up for him and the food was very tasty.More

There was a live band but the room was full so we were places in a side room with a fireplace beside a stack of storage items. The ambiance was not there and we left after a beer. It seems like sitting in the band...section would be fun though and the beer was fine.More

The most expensive dining in downtown Annapolis! — But — definitely worth every dollar. . From the upstairs piano bar to the downstairs bar and restaurant the delicious meals, friendly service and live music always continues to keep Middleton’s at the top of the heap....*Great live music every weekend!More

Good stop in dock area. First meal in Annapolis. Some tables outside. We opted for inside. Small table good for us off the side. We had the Prime burger, Steamed shrimp, raw oysters. All tasted good and fresh. Pricy, but this is a tourist area...in a prime location. Joshua our server did a good job.More

Food was average at best. Fried green tomatoes were very overcooked, the steamed clams, half of them were good. The other half, they felt like they were previously steamed, and just reheated. Very chewy. Tables are way too close this day of COVID.

With our daughter at the Naval Academy, this is a very convenient stop. We actually visited twice in two days. The three of us enjoyed lunch on a Saturday, then brunch on Sunday. Lunch included a burger, a chicken melt, and fries. All of the...food was good and the service was great. (The receipts don't name the server, so I can't give a personal shout out.) For brunch, we added a fourth guest. We ordered two omelets, a country breakfast, and oysters and shrimp. The omelets were ok, the country breakfast was demolished, and the seafood, I was told, was great. A little pricey, but we expected it going in. Service on Sunday was just as good.More

Crab cake was good--the reuben was really excellent. The service was uneven, but they were busy at lunch

We have been here years ago and it was just an ok restaurant. Today's visit, we shared their crab dip that was ok but not worth buying again. We both ordered a burger cooked medium and got raw burgers. The waitress just said I am...sorry and tossed them in the trash and gave us a bill with no offer to delete the burgers.More

Half of my food was uncooked. Was offered nothing off the bill. Charges a lot for a small amount of food and doesn’t care if it is edible.
