We loved this restaurant - we were STARVING when we showed up after a long drive and they did not disappoint. The ambiance is fun and the food was DELICIOUS. We had the specials and chocolate carrot cake for desert. You probably can't go wrong with any entree here. We had fun sitting at the bar and will return when... More

This was our second time dining at The Robert Morris Inn. It is very quaint and rustic inside. We dined on a Monday evening. I had the crab cake dinner which was good. Wife had the steak, not as good as she was expecting. Our previous visit we had breakfast and dinner there and it was wonderful. Definitely, worth visiting.

We were in Saint Michael's for a family reunion and came here for dinner. We were 22 people in a private room with a large square table. The food was good and the service very friendly. This was by far the best meal we had in the area!

This is the second time we have been here. First time was last year. The inside is somewhat old and crusty. You might wish to sit outside instead. Rather than sit in the bar area, it is nicer to sit in the room next door. Then there is a strange old dining room after that, which might be ok if... More

We eat here every year. The food and service are great (Ben was a great host and server). The main menu and specials offer a wonderful variety of food for all tastes. You have to try the Smith Island Cake!

We did not stay at the Inn but took a bike ride there for breakfast. I had a crispy Belgian waffle served with fresh strawberries and cream. My husband had poached eggs, bacon which was cooked perfectly. Service was very friendly! I might just have to stay here next time

Like most people, my husband and I put off visiting the attractions in our "own backyard." Yesterday, though, we did not and we traveled to Oxford to eat lunch at The Robert Morris Inn. There were enough lunch selections on the menu to please anyone. Items ranged form salads to soups to sandwiches, to small entrees. The cream of crab... More

My husband and I visited Oxford recently and had dinner here. We both enjoyed the seafood platter and were very impressed with the quality of the fresh crab, oysters and fish. Sit outside when the weather is nice - delightful!!

The Inn is beautiful inside. We had breakfast on the front porch and it was terrific. We even got a 15% discount for staying at Sandaway B&B

We found ourselves in last minute need of a place to stay and had the good fortune to stumble upon kindness that is rarely seen these days. My husband and I will be patrons for life! The inn is lovely and hospitality could not have been any better. The food smelled delicious and we were very excited to try the... More
