1861 Restaurant and The Grille at Back Creek: Best Restaurants in Middletown


Back Creek's house-made Reuben spring rolls are made with corned beef, sauerkraut, green cabbage and Swiss cheese and are served with Thousand Island sauce.

Hooray for 1861 Restaurant, a casual gastropub-ish place with something for everyone—lamb burgers, grilled pizzas, steaks, chops, duck tacos, even chicken and waffles (with a twist, of course). The signature cocktails get fresh-squeezed juices. The wine list is well rounded. The beer list is small, but interesting. It’s just what Middletown needed. 423 N. Broad St., Middletown,376-7956, 1861restaurant.com
