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!

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
