I have been on a quest to find the best crab cake on the east coast. I've been to Maine and other New England spots, but I finally found what I was looking for in the lovely, small town of Oxford Maryland. The Robert Morris Inn boasts the Best Crab Cake in Maryland, as recommended by James Michener, the author, no less. Well, it's true. My husband and I wanted to get away without our two small children for our 10th anniversary weekend. The Robert Morris Inn was a great destination for just that. They do not allow children under the age of 10! It's an historic inn built in the early 1700s. Our room was very quaint and quiet. The staff at the inn is very congenial and we were able to enjoy quiet solitude along the banks of the Tred Avon River, which is near the Chesapeake Bay. The best part, however, were the crab cakes which I had for dinner and then again for breakfast--yes, you can order crab cakes for breakfast in the lovely dining room at the inn. Oxford is a wonderful little town, very friendly, slightly off the beaten path but close to other destinations on the Eastern shore of Maryland as well as Annapolis where we took a tour of the Naval Academy. I highly recommend this inn for a weekend getaway, but most definitely for the crab cakes!!

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. ... more less
