Middletons on Main, located in the quaint village of Wauconda, Illinois- in a building originally built in 1847 and operated as a stagecoach stop, a brothel and then the Grand Hotel- operating in recent years as a historic restaurant and bar and now the area's first gastropub.

The term gastropub originated in the United Kingdon in the late 20th century and refers to a bar and restaurant that serves hig-end beer and food without pretension.  We proudly offerover 100 different types of beer from all around the world including twelve choices on tap.  We also have a full bar stocked with the finest top shelf liquors and an impressive wine, single malt, and Irish whiskey collection. 

Our cuisine is a mix of classics as well as the nouvelle.  Our Chef and his crew use only the finest and freshest ingredients to create a well rounded and eclectic menu.

Stop by for a nice meal and pint at the bar.  We look forward to seeing you at Middleton's on Main!

If you were to walk into almost any restaurant kitchen, one thing you will consistently find is cooks listening to music.  There is something about food and music that seems to be ingrained in the collective consciousness of humanity.  Much like pairing wine with a meal, here at Middletons we believe that music also pairs well with food. From local musicians to Nationally touring acts, we pride ourselves in bringing the best entertainment around to enhance your dining experience.  A meal at Middletons is not just about the flavors you taste but a total experience with all your senses. So sit, eat, drink and listen to your dinner.
