My husband and I had a lovely dinner at the restaurant. Our server, Casey was an absolute delight! She was so friendly and nice and made the best recommendations for us. We tried the avocado fries which was divine - so much so that we asked the chef for his recipe so that we can try it at home. :)... More

Found by default three years ago when we had engine problems with our yacht. Desperate for a coffee so called in. Noticed the meals served so we ordered as the looked so good and friendly staff . Now Oxford is our boatyard base for summer. We have stayed there twice and eat there regularly. Always look forward to returning

Cream of crab soup - very bland other then the scorched taste. Gazpacho- the best item we had.....not bad, but nothing special either. "Fish and chips" - watery (obviously frozen fish product), breading was tough and chewy, fell off the fish.....the taste and color of the batter suggested that the fryer had dirty oil that is cooked in. The "chips"... More

Great big thanks to Meredith for amazing service and to the chef for a delicious dinner. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner. Meredith was our server and she was an absolute delight. We couldn't have asked for better service. We both loved our meals. Neither of us can eat seafood so we were very happy there were... More

I had the prime rib Sunday special and it was probably the best steak I have ever eaten. Our server Amanda was very attentive and made the experience that much more enjoyable. We are from out of state,but if we are ever in the area again, we will most definitely be back.

Nice dinner on the terrace outside looking at the sunset. Great crab cakes and very nice service. The inside room seems to be well decorated with antiques

My friend and I have lunch at the Robert Morris Inn the first week of every month for the last two years and have never been disappointed. The wait staff is outstanding, we particularly like Cara and the food is excellent. There a number of spots in Oxford lunch but none have the historic charm of the Inn

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.
