“Great presentations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I ate a number of meals while I stayed at the Oxford Inn. Every one was a treat. Service was great. I live in ND where fresh seafood is not found, and loved the selections available. The fresh oysters were wonderful.

“Average at Best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Rock fish arrived looking and tasting like it it was cooked yesterday, hard and luke warm. Way to pricey, many better places in Talbot county.

“Worth going out of your way-”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

On the recommendation of a marina manager, we visited Pope's Tavern on a Monday evening in mid October. What a terrific meal! The crab cake set on succotash was perfectly paired and seasoned. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. Fresh ingredients are used here at the height of their flavor. Definitely worth going out of your way for. The ride back to the marina in the tavern-owned 1957 Austin Healey on a rainy night was also a treat.

“A Great Place for Special Occasions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Neat waterside town, with this great restaurant that has an active owner-host. Food is excellent, great ambiance in a B&B inn. Energetic crowd just adds to the experience. Seafood of course a specialty. Recommend for a romantic out of town dinner. I had blackened MaihiMaihi, spouse had soft shell crabs. Both dishes were excellent, and presented attractively.

“Most inviting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Oxford Inn as we were in town for a wedding. Lisa and Dan the Innkeepers and restaurant owners could not have made us feel more at home. We were made to feel like we belonged in the small sailing town. One of our greatest experiences while in Oxford was dining at Pope's Tavern. The quality of food, exquisite taste, and flawless service far surpassed our small town expectations. The creative entrees showcased local flavor and were brilliantly presented. We sincerely hope to return to Oxford soon, if for no other reason than to enjoy another evening at Popes Tavern at the Oxford Inn.
