All was good. Good service, outside dining available. Two sections inside, tavern area and fine dining. Mark Salter, the executive chef, is excellent and also caters.

We fell in love with the quaint town of Oxford, MD as soon as we arrived. Our first stop was lunch at the Robert Morris Inn, which made our visit very enjoyable and a memory worth keeping. We loved walking all through the town. Our next visit had to include a stay in one of the Inn's "step-back-in-time" rooms, as... More

We enjoyed our dinner here - wonderful service and really thoughtful, diverse menu. My husband at the prime rib (on Special on Sundays) and had his first Yorkshire pudding. I had the burger with apple and blue cheese coleslaw. We shared a heirloom tomato and goat cheese salad. All if it was delicious. Just a bit disappointed we didn't have... More

Breakfast was outstanding. My poached eggs were so fresh they must have been under a hen until the last minute. The porridge was excellent. The inn's location is perfect. My only disappointment was the room in which we stayed. It was extremely "tired". Perhaps the inn will update their accommodations to match the level of their food and location sometime... More

We were painting around Oxford for the Easton Plein Air event and we're very hot after a day in the sun. Dressed like artists, we wondered if they would accept us "as is". Instead of snubbing the noses at us, they welcomed us in warmly into the cool pub. It was like stepping back in time, and the colonial murals... More

We couldn't have had a more enjoyable afternoon for our anniversary lunch. Food was outstanding but what made it truly special was our server Alyssa. She was warm, knowledgeable and so very friendly. We will be back because of her!

The food was good and so was the service. My husband and I The restaurant and tavern are actually called Salter's and is located on the first floor of the Robert Morris Inn. We enjoyed eating a relaxing breakfast on the front porch that has a nice view of the river and landscaped prettily with many native flowers. The breakfast... More

On a quiet Monday in Oxford, we initially had the dining room to ourselves at lunchtime, but before long several couples and small family groups appeared to add energy to this most historic and loved inn and restaurant. Our server was a delight and our food appeared quickly. The panko-fried oysters were fresh, a delicious hint of brine, and came... More

AnotherHappyTraveler Thank you for visiting our ancient Inn for lunch. These low summer temperatures have extended our outside dining this year and being on the water makes that a special pleasure. Delighted our dishes hit the mark, for you. We have one of the most experienced kitchen teams on the Shore and this shows through in each dish we serve.... More

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.
