The apps are fun, (crispy fried brussel sprouts...buffalo shrimp...shrimp tacos)and for a main course,you can't go wrong with the steak frittes.

Had dinner with my parents who live about 15 miles away Was overwhelmingly surprised as I have been coming to this area for 17 years and have been underwhelmed with the food choices for a vegetarian and usually have settled for something put together that less than acceptable The three of us had a great meal in a beautiful small...

Thank you, Kathleen B, for your recommendation. Our chef works hard to make options available for many palates and preferences, including vegetarian, gluten free, etc. Our soup option changes regularly; we are very pleased that you enjoyed it. We hope you'll join us again the next time you're in the area. More

If you're looking for a: 1. true New England inn; 2. overlooking the Mountains; 3. in a Maine "academy" town; 4. with great food, service, atmosphere and views, the Oxford House Inn is well worth the visit. It's a bit of a drive for us, but we've been here a number of times and we'll be back again. Any time... More

Had a lovely dinner with my daughter. The food was wonderful and the service outstanding. Make sure you make reservations weeks even months in advance before your visit to Fryberg.

Wonderful original 100 year old house, like eating in someone's diningroom. Interesting and very appetizing food in creative combinations. The service was very competent and friendly, even though the espresso machine was broken down.

Last Saturday night my husband, two friends and I enjoyed an OUTSTANDING dinner at the Oxford House Inn. We ordered Kale salads, the sweet potato gnocchi, and onion rings for appetizers, all of which were delicious.
