Description: 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.

The weather was chilly so we did not want to venture too far so we walked to the Robert Morris Inn for dinner. We choose to sit in the tavern section to enjoy the warmof the fireplace. The grilled rockfish and pepper truffle beef were very good. We enjoyed the relaxed quiet atmosphere of the off season.

We were entertaining some out of town guests and thought it would be nice to take them. Got there at 2:20 in the afternoon and were seated. After 10 minutes an employee came and told us they had stopped serving lunch at 2:30 and that all the food was put away for the afternoon. We were at a loss as to why they seated us if lunch was no longer being served. We did find a great restaurant on the water in Oxford and our friends were impressed.

Mark and I are most disapointed to read of your experience, particularly as you are local. Our last orders for lunch have always been 2.30pm and usually if someone asks for a manager we employ about 10 minutes flexability. Understandably customer often turn up well after 2.30pm due to the Ferry or the drive from Easton. We wish you had something at the time. Ian

Thank you so much, you comments are much appreciated. I have been using the same top local supplier for over eighteen years and that ensures I get the best of the best, consistently. I do little with that great flavorsome meat, to let the great natrual flavors shine through. Look forward to seeing you again. Mark

The seafood platter is my husband's favorite. Each item is a delectable morsel. He raves over the crabcake, fried oysters, crab soup, shrimp, and fish. It is a full dinner with a unique combination of items that can't be found elsewhere.
As for me the crab cakes are to die for. They are all lump crabmeat with little filler and delicate seasonings.
My adult children love the fish and on Sunday nights the prime rib with Yorkshire pudding.
Chef Mark Salter is very talented. If you can come on one of the Saturday mornings when the chef has a cooking class you are in for a treat. After the demonstration the students get together for a two course luncheon with wine at which you are served items the chef has demonstrated. What a wonderful way to spend Saturday morning!
Can't wait to go back.
