Description: Once the home of Robert Morris who gained fame as "Financier of the Revolution". General and later President George Washington was a close friend and visited Robert Morris often. In more recent times author James Michener outlined his famous novel, Chesapeake here and fell in love with our renowned crab cakes.Now the Eastern Shore's most unique historic restaurant with rooms under celebrity Chef Proprietor, Mark Salter and Ian Fleming.Enter the Inn and step back 300 years: a pristine yet historic interior welcomes with timber beams, panelled walls and open fires in the cooler months. Through to Salter's Tavern featuring historic red brick walls and old slate floors, with magnificent fires in the cooler months and offering casual outside dining on our Terraces and Veranda during balmy warm summers.This is a truly historic Inn, cosy with a natural patina running through. Friendly, great cuisine and understated professional service.

Have had cream of crab soup all around the Eastern Shore of Maryland. This is by far the best I have had.....just excellent. The restaurant is located in a historic Inn in a very picturesque town on the Bay.

A very historic property, on the Chesapeake Bay. Eat in the pub area or one of 2 more formal dinning rooms. Great burger and fries! Oysters. Dinner salads, soups.... Very nice selection on the menu. Excellent wine list. Local beer on tap. On a cold night, large fires warm the rooms.

Charming atmosphere, friendly staff. Loved that it was near where we were staying and that it was open. The fried oysters tasted like they had been made ahead and frozen. The crabcake was decent and a good size, but I've had much better for a lot less. The chef does vegetables well. The wine selection by the glass was meager,... More

My wife had wanted to go to this place for years. However, we didn't stay at the Inn, instead staying at Sandaway, which had been spun off from the Inn. We were both pleased with the food overall. I was especially pleased with my combination seafood platter. I wish I'd known the cream of crab soup I got on the... More
