This inn has a cozy resturant with a small bar attached to it. Service to our table was outstanding. Very limited menu which we enjoy. Wife and myself had the flounder with herb/ garlic mash potatoes and spinach. The crusted bread came with a garlic infused olive oil. Garlic overload !! Between the bread and potatoes taste buds want into overdrive! Dessert was a raspberry infused cake which was too sweet for us. Think the garlic might have been the cause! Next time we dine here will stay away from some of the garlic!

Oyster special $1.00 each was a treat- delicious, tender and properly shucked. Main dish of roast duck with potato and poached pear in a port sauce was delicious. Limited list of wines by the glass but I found one that was good.

Food was great, staff friendly. The dining room decor reminded us of a french country inn. Out front is parked the "Pope's Mobile", an English taxi vehicle (don't know if it runs or not). Enjoyed ourselves

I ate a number of meals while I stayed at the Oxford Inn. Every one was a treat. Service was great. I live in ND where fresh seafood is not found, and loved the selections available. The fresh oysters were wonderful.
