The location for this restaurant is stunning. It's in the forest and the old building is beautiful. You feel like you've stepped back in time once you enter. The menu has a good variety and we had a large group of people there and everyone loved their food.

We visited the Union for the first time in 15 years and were not disappointed. The restaurant was pleasantly decorated for the fall and we were seated immediately upon arrival. I had the baked sea scallops which were excellent. I actually couldn't eat them all. My husband had the baked chicken which got a 5 star rating. The chicken was... More

My parents have gone here for years. We had not been in 6 years. Dad knew best, the Crab Imperial is the only entrée to get. We had the prime rib ($31)- pretty fatty in the wrong places and the Sambucco Scallops & Shrimp-- just weird. I would go back, only for the crab.

Last weekend we were looking for a place to meet friends halfway between our homes in NJ and MD. We selected Port Deposit, MD. I selected the Union Hotel Restaurant based on the diversity of its menu and based on its 4/5 rating. While it was a bit challenging to get to due to road construction/detours we all agreed that...

Not my first time here but my last. We had 5:00 PM reservations for six and arrived on time. Only several tables had customers. An hour later our food arrive at the table. Two plates of trout were not good and the crab cakes over cooked. I expected more of the peach desert other than a half peach in the... More

Never tried the restaurant before. It's vintage 1790's. Parking is free--the hotel restaurant is on the right, the tavern is on the left as you pull in. The tavern is motorcycle friendly. Upon entering the restaurant, we found ourselves the first patrons of the day, so every table was open. We were seated at one of the favorite spots, a... More

This is a very cool place to dine, it's like being back in the 1790's. Very historic atmosphere. With all the meals I've had here, for me the cream of crab soup and crab cakes are number one. You will not be disappointed what ever meal you choose. If planing to dine here, always make a reservation if not you... More

In the summer, the Union Hotel has an outdoor area next to the Historic Restaurant that has a live band and if the weather is good, there are about 100 motorcycles! Great music and really nice people.

I loved visiting this inn today. It was built in 1794 and it still had it's historic charm. My friend had an outstanding French Onion Soup. We both had a good crab cake sandwich. I ordered their cream of crab soup special which was horrible. I asked if I. Could switch to the French Onion soup but was told that... More

A family hot spot for years. We have never had a bad dinner. My only complaint would be that I wish they would change the menu somewhat. I'm just curious what other amazing things the cook can make.
