Recently came to the ghost dinner and food was amazing! The butternut squash soup is to die for! The Valentine's dinner and specials were also out of this world. Best servers Casey, Daniel and Susan!

There are lots of quality restaurants in the Easton, Maryland area but none can compare to the quality of the chef, the quality of the food and the welcoming atmosphere. Mark Salter, the executive chef, is an excellent teacher as well. We are regulars at his cooking classes and love his special events. From crab cakes to Eggs Benedict and... More

With a friendly chef/owner on site, quite a romantic place for dinner. We were surprised to learn that this is the oldest inn in America!

A lovely, historic Inn/Restaurant in Oxford MD. On a cold night, with good friends and a fire. A solid menu with the occasional special night. Last night was pasta night. The chef had several pre made sauces to choose from, chicken or shrimp, and 2 pastas to put with other ingredients. Very good. Service is also good. Limited beer on... More

We ate dinner here last Saturday night. The atmosphere, service and food was excellent. My husband had the sirloin steak and I had a duck breast. Neither of us was disappointed. It was one of best dining experiences we have had on the Eastern Shore. The best chocolate carrot cake ever! We will be going back. Worth the drive from... More

As our dinner friends commented, "Wow"! We overdosed on Oysters Rockefeller and Oyster Pot Pie (taking advantage of the seasonal comfort menu.) Topped with a delish dessert in front of a warm and inviting fireplace. Can't wait until the next special menu comes out!

Didn't stay here, just stopped in for lunch... Cream of Crab soup was very good, fish & chips were good as was the oyster po-boy. Cocktails were nicely poured. Service was more than adequate! It's off-season, it's probably better in high-season, but still good!!

Went here for thanksgiving and was very disappointed. Food was ok but this place is in poor condition and the wait staff was comical. A waiter at a ruby Tuesday knows that you clear before serving the next plate...our waitress was hadn't a clue. Toilet paper on floor of hallway and ceiling looked as if it were going to collapse....

Dear ejh25 Thank you for visiting our Inn & Tavern. Thanksgiving is our single busiest service of the year and much goes into the planning and execution to ensure great customer experiences. We are so sorry that we seem to have failed you on most levels, with perhaps little bar the food to redeem it. We certainly are not perfect... More

Description
Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here and fell in love with our renowned crab cakes.Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming.Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers.This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.
