Fodor's Review

Horatio Middleton began operating this "inn for seafaring men" in 1750, and Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin were among his guests. Today four fireplaces, wood floors, paneled walls, and a Colonial theme create a cozy atmosphere and seafood tops the menu; the Maryland crab soup and pan-seared rockfish are standouts. Try the tavern's own Middleton Oyster Ale, perhaps during happy hour or on weekends in the upstairs piano bar where you'll enjoy everything from showtunes and blues to classical pieces. Brunch is served on weekends, and you can dine outdoors in good weather.
