The cream of crab soup is still the best ever. Both the pork chop and filet entrees were superb. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The martini was spot on. The wine choices are desirable.

Our party of five recently came here for the first time for brunch. We had our drinks within 10 minutes and then placed our food order. It then took 50 minutes for our food to arrive and 2 of the entrees came out over 5 minutes before the others! There were only 4 other parties in the restaurant while we... More

It was mother's day and they were booked. they found my step-mother and myself a quiet booth off of the kitchen/bar where we could talk in a very private setting. I would recommend you patronize this establishment and decide for yourself. It is a very nice place.

Lovingly restored by the owner himself, this historic restaurant -- originally built in 1926 -- features great American cuisine in an intimate, elegant atmosphere. Perfect for couples and a romantic night out (not a place for kids -- no children's menu, though they will try to accommodate). The fried red tomato appetizer is amazing -- you won't want to share!... More

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
