Just as good as I remembered!

The last time I visited was 6 or 7 years ago, and I wasn't even sure it was still open; we took a chance on the way home from a day in nearby St. Michaels and weren't disappointed! Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior. I had the filet which was tender, flavorful and cooked to order. My... read more

Four sail boats from Solomons, Maryland visited Oxford last week-end. All eleven sailors descended on Latitude 38 Sunday evening for a wonderful supper. Most of us had dined here before but there were three that this was their first time. The meals were served hot and fairly quickly after ordering. Some of us had the half portions which were quite...

The exterior is an attempt to mislead the hordes of tourists that descend on the small historic town of Oxford. Ignore that and hurry inside, as Latitudes can get busy fast. Sit at the bar for some local news or enjoy the dining rooms. The nightly bar special at under $10 is unbeatable. Portions are ample without being super-size overwhelming.... More

Love that you think the gas is to deter the tourists, but not so! We are the only gas in town so the pumps stay to satisfy the needs of the locals. The building once was a gas station, liquor store in the old days! Glad you liked the bar plate priced at $7.95, so super size, unless you want... More

We have many fine restaurants here in Talbot County, but we dine here as often as we can. The food is outstanding, the service is great. It is hard to beat this, our favorite restaurant. The half entrees are a terrific idea and all we can eat.

One of the few open restaurants when we visited Oxford. Really liked that you had the "half plate" option for most entrees, as this was plenty of food and left room for desert. The fish was quite good, and the wonderful waitress gave us a ride back to our hotel after our meal!

Thanks so much for your kind review. We get so many compliments on the half entrée on our menu. Diners today want that option and we are way ahead of that curve because we have been offering that for 20 years! Hope to see you on your next visit to Oxford! Wendy Palmer Owner More

Latitude 38 is a quaint restaurant with excellent service. Our waitress suggested the evening special which was shockingly priced at $8.95. The portion was small but certainly sufficient and well seasoned. A perfect meal. After we ordered, a couple at a nearby table said they had the meal also and highly recommended it.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. It sounds like you enjoyed the bar dinner which is "shockingly" priced at $7.95 each night. It is a small plate dinner that our locals love because they don't have to cook! We hope you will return soon to see what we have next! Wendy Palmer Owner More

My wife has Caesar salad and mussels and I had the baked oysters and the rockfish in both half portions. All were very good especially the baked oysters. The wine was reasonably priced. Overall, an enjoyable meal.

I have been in the restaurant business for 35 years. Visited Latitude38 for the first time this week. You would never know from looking at the exterior, that the interior would be so warm and sophisticated. I was there for lunch and had cream of mushroom soup and tarragon chicken salad. The soup was one of the best cream soups... More
