Downtown Area Cooking Up a Fine Culinary Selection

Downtown dining offerings run from A-Z—there is something for every taste—and restaurateurs are welcoming to downtowners, mid-towners and out-of-towners alike. Several eateries have recently opened in the downtown area; others have been fan favorites for years. Be sure to stop in and support these businesses, each contributes to the vibrant downtown Middletown experience.

The Blue Goose Deuce

401 North Verity Parkway

A sports bar for everyone, the Deuce offers chicken wings, kids menu, daily basket specials, a full bar, pool table, darts and
Wi-Fi—eat in or carry out to events at the nearby Smith Park.

Combs BBQ

2223 Central Avenue

One of the newest restaurants in downtown Middletown and getting rave reviews! Themed '50s and '60s, Combs BBQ takes great pride in its slow, crafted smoking process. This isn't their first rodeo.

The Canal House Bar & Grille

14 South Broad Street

Looking for great beers in a public house environment? Stop in to sit and chat, enjoy time with friends and take in the art performances and live music.

Triple Moon Coffee Company

Central Avenue and Broad Street

Triple Moon Coffee Company offers "Good Vibes, Great Coffee" and a great place to meet up while you're downtown. Of note are the Middletown Police Department's "listening sessions" held at Triple Moon and a soon-to-be-unveiled drive-through service.

The Meadows Restaurant

2102 Yankee Road

Established in 1934, this downtown landmark is now under new ownership. You'll find an upscale menu, rustic pine-paneled walls, high-backed booths and historic prints of old Prohibition-era gangsters—great fun, great food.

Murphy's Landing Seafood & Steakhouse

1054 Central Avenue, entrance on Broad Street

Named in honor of its building's history and the City's heritage, here you'll enjoy fine steak and seafood options in an elegant yet casual dining atmosphere of stained-glass windows, chandeliers and hardwood floors.

Stone-Fired Bistro

1045 Central Avenue

"The Bistro" to its fans, this is a premiere pizza maker with a loyal following—they're passionate about what they do, and it shows.
