“Nice Meal with Family”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

This restaurant accommodated 6 of us and didn't care how long we stayed to chat. Even offered to refill our water when they knew we were just catching up after not seeing each other for awhile. The food was great! The staff attentive. I understand why the locals recommend it. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked. The full bar was a nice compliment & they know how to make their drinks!

“A breath of fresh air in Middletown”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This innovative restaurant in a traditional casual restaurant setting adds some new tastes in this small town. There isn't much from which to choose in town, so Boar's Breath is the best around. The selection is good enough and the staff is attentive. Had a very good beet salad and some draft beer. I would return.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Boar's Breath is the happening place in Middletown; good food, good prices and lots of great wine and a full bar. I don't like the TV, but there is a bar to sit at so I'm sure some people like that. The tables are intimate and the place is dark and can be a bit noisy, but in a good way. The beet salad blew us away with flavor and the onion soup is sweet and cheesy. The wait staff took time to chat us up a bit, which was sweet when they were so busy.

“Excellent food in a small town”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

I was totally surprised that a small town like Middletown -- the first town that one comes to after leaving Napa County and Calistoga on Hwy 29 going north had such excellent food. I had the salmon and it was cooked so nicely -- just melted in my mouth -- also came with fresh, nicely cooked vegetables and mashed potatoes/cauliflower. My husband had a very good steak and a crab cakes appetizer ( good flavor and more crab than fill). Servce was great -- a very friendly waiter for 6 people -- and he split the tab any way we desired.
Middletown is in Lake County. Clear Lake is a large lake in the county. AND there are many excellent wineries to visit. Visit on Wine Adventure weekend in late July -- and taste at many wineries that also have food and music. Lake County is rural, but beautiful and less hectic than the Nap/Sonoma area. Enjoy !
