Amazing food. Frequently rated one of the best restaurants in the area. Easy walk from beaches and such. Definitely one of the nicer restaurants in the area but worth the price. Menu chances with the seasons but any time of year, you are going to find great food!

We were very impressed. Service was fantastic so was the food. They had live music which was a pleasant plus. It was two blocks from the water. It was a great way to spend a Saturday night. They also have tables outside

I recently decided to host a surprise birthday party for my wife and chose the Westlawn for the venue. We had never been to the Westlawn despite living in the area for 16 years. I found the owner to be very engaging and helpful during the planning process. My initial reservation was for 10 and at the last minute I... More

I had the pleasure of hosting my niece's baby shower at the Westlawn Inn. I live in NYC so arranging such an event in MD was not easy. However, the innkeepers of The Westlawn Inn, Jan and Lee, were absolutely marvelous. They guided me each step of the way, from decorations to menu. The party was wonderful. Everyone complemented me... More

This restaurant is the ground floor of an old house. Very nice atmosphere about 2 blocks from the water. The waitress was friendly and helpful. I had their fried red tomatoes, which had crab meat stacked between the tomatoes and was delicious. The cream of crab soup had a tabasco oil drizzled on it which took the soup up to... More

We went for Easter dinner. There were few restaurants in the area that had availability. We made a reservation though we did not need one. There were only 3 other tables taken in the restaurant. The service was very good and they even allowed our children to order from the bar menu. I had the duck and risotto. The risotto... More

The cream of crab soup is still the best ever. Both the pork chop and filet entrees were superb. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The martini was spot on. The wine choices are desirable.

We had an excellent dining experience tonight at West Lawn Inn. The owners, Lee & Jan were wonderful and very accommodating. It was nice to meet them and get to know them. Our server, Anna, provided exceptional service. The ambiance was very nice. We were seated in the upstairs dining area, which provided sufficient seating for our seven-person group. We... More

Our party of five recently came here for the first time for brunch. We had our drinks within 10 minutes and then placed our food order. It then took 50 minutes for our food to arrive and 2 of the entrees came out over 5 minutes before the others! There were only 4 other parties in the restaurant while we... More
