Middletown is a census-designated place (CDP) in Lake County, California, United States. Its population was 1,323 at the 2010 census, up from 1,020 at the 2000 census. Middletown was given its name because it is halfway between Lower Lake and Calistoga which is 17 miles (27 km) to the south. The town was severely damaged by the 2015 Valley Fire.

Buddha Thai Kitchen

Reviewed By byebye2u - Windsor, California

We stopped at this restaurant after reading other Trip Advisors' comments about how good the food was. Boy, where they right! We ordered from the lunch menu, I ordered the Lemon Chicken plate which was really great served with steamed rice and a side salad dressed with delicious dressing. The amount of food was just perfect. My husband ordered a curried chicken dish that was really good too, but hotter (spicy) than what I had ordered. Both dishes were satisfying and delicious. We've already promised ourselves that we will make a special trip to Middletown to enjoy the food at this great restaurant again soon. The decor is very nice, the place is very clean and the service was excellent.

Finally, an authentic juice shop. I am so impressed with the integrity this business has in their product. Only the freshest all organic products are used in their juices. Go in and order a fresh juice for yourself and see what i am talking about. I am so bummed that there is not a business closer to where i live. Santa Rosa?? Please contact me if you open when up here, i will be your best testimonial.

Moved to the Hidden Valley Lake area around 12/16/15. After a busy day of moving and not knowing when food establishments closed we succumbed to hunger around 10pm and desiring more of a meal than snack. When I approached the shopping area outside of our gate I happened upon Stonefire Pizza; "thank God your still open!" - I exclaimed, only to find that "no, we're closed". This very cute family was working that night and when I shared my story and situation - I was informed that there were a few items of food which could be done quickly to include: delicious large twisted bread-sticks, party wings and a luscious salad (Cesar i think?). Enough for two and affordable as well. Now Sold by this experience, I later returned by ordering for delivery and wow, Wow Wow!!! Their pizza is delicious. Made however you want it and delivered with a smile. Ya gotta know by now - I returned again by ordering and this time a Large pizza.

A nice introduction to my new and beautiful home and area - I've since discovered other wonderful options, but know this - I can always rely on Stonefire Pizza!

La Parrilla

Authentic homemade Mexican cuisine.

Reviewed By Hedy M

For years we've been enjoying the enticing Mexican food that Jonathan Obaza and crew prepare. Capturing the flavors of Districto Federal of Mexico City, this is not your usual "Mexican" fare. The use of cactus, pineapple, great red and green sauces along with tasty preparations for enchiladas, burritos and nachos are family favorites. There is much more to savor here. Do yourself a favor and visit one of Lake County's best eateries.

The food was very good, but the menu listed roasted Yukon potatoes, but we received red potatoes with way too much thyme. Our steaks with mushrooms were very good, lots of fresh vegetables. One in our party did the Friday night buffet and enjoyed the salmon, chicken, and prime rib offerings.

Mount St. Helena Brewing Company

Reviewed By Troy D - Paso Robles, California

This staple needs some serious upgrades. A lot of the beers from 8-9 years ago weren't available. The food is ok, but nothing extraordinary. Still looks like it did when I was last here in 2008.

I have been here three times in the last two weeks, for me that is a lot! I just found this gem and have loved everything that we have ordered, and I am sure they have the best burger in all of Lake County! This is actually up on Cobb Mountain, not in Middletown, but that is the official address. It is a nice drive up the mountain, and well worth it. The french dip was amazing with real tri trip sliced and homeade beef gravy for dipping, along with melted Havarti and mushrooms and onions you cannot go wrong. Try the fried brussels and you will be a believer... the fries are great too as well as the gorgonzola salad that is enough for 2. We bring home leftovers and they are great.
