Great date night

Good food, live music performance, and friendly staff. Nice spot for a date night. Not a place to bring kids this is good for couples.

Found this lovely little place right here on Trival Advisor. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a Jazz show.

Have traveling inn and out of North Beach for a few years, and was curious about the food and atmosphere at this neighborhood location. Set back a couple of blocks from the "beach" / water in North Beach, the restaurant occupies an old house, with a veranda style porch on at least two street sides of the building. I believe... More

We are locals. We know the places in the Twin Beaches pretty well. Westlawn Inn is a subtle gem in North Beach. If you're not careful, you might cruise by the low key presentation. That would be a mistake. Front the front steps, the comfortable appointments are a welcome change from the tourist trap regularity of the rest of the... More

Went to the Westlawn with friends for New Years Eve dinner. It was packed but they still seated us on time. We were promptly greeted by Kate, our server, who delivered impeccable service all evening. The live band provided a wonderful ambiance without overbearing conversation. The lobster tail was delicious! I highly recommend the Westlawn Inn for special or romantic... More

Lee, Jan and Will have built and run an amazing establishment. Beautifully restored chesapeake bay boarding house that serves the area with fine food and great local musicians too. Do yourself a favor, order the hand made margarita!

The starter we tried were Bruschetta, calamari, Salmon Quesadilla, and fried tomato-all excellent. The entrees we tried were Duck, Filet, and Salmon, all properly prepared and of good... More

Over the past three years, we've dined here more than 10 times because it has had well prepared food, a nice ambiance, the promise of music, and it's within walking distance of the cottage where we stay. And we've returned because it has had, in our opinion, the finest dining and best prepared food in North Beach and Chesapeake Beach.... More
