Food and stories that will warm your soul. Middleton has an abundance of locally owned and operated restaurants, offering a variety of food in all different styles and our Middleton Dinner tour exposes you to a little bit of everything! During this night time indulgence we stop at a Cajun-creole restaurant that has been bringing people back for 25 years, a classic Wisconsin tavern that gives you the feeling of being hugged when you walk in, and a diner that is bustling with friends and families from sun up to sun down. All food and drink tastings are included in the ticket price and portion sizes will leave you feeling satiated.
Just enough time outside to be ready to warm back up. We know that Wisconsin winters are full of cold temperatures and snow, which is why we have designed this tour with minimal time spent outside. All of our tasting locations are within 4 blocks of one another, so we take a few minutes to enjoy the magic of winter in downtown Middleton as we quickly walk to our next tasting where we have plenty of time to warm back up. The walk is a very easy, flat half mile that moves at a comfortable pace for all fitness levels.
A great night out for locals and visitors. Capital City Food Tours aims to provide each guest with a memorable evening walking and eating. We combine delicious tasting food with rich history and architecture to provide our guests with an all around impressive food tour experience. Our personable guides share the interesting stories of the restaurants and their owners as well as the historical events such as the “Great Fire of 1900”. Learn the theory behind why Wisconsinites started making the Old Fashioned with brandy and how Middleton became known as the “Good Neighbor” town. Local residents and visitors alike are sure to develop an affection for this quaint town that is just outside of Madison.
