A word from Peacock Restaurant & Lounge at The Inn at 202 Dover
The Peacock Restaurant & Lounge is located in the Inn at 202 Dover, selected by American Express, Travel + Leisure and Food & Wine as Best Inn in America and named by Maryland Life Magazine as the "Buckingham Palace of inns." We offer casual yet a fine dining experience. Selected as Top 11 Romantic Restaurant in America. AAA 4 Diamond. Our guests remark that dining at the Peacock is more like dining at a friend's home than a typical restaurant. You will probably be welcomed by one of the owners, Shelby or Ron, offered an opportunity to start your experience with a cocktail or glass of wine in our lounge or, if you prefer, be seated upon arrival. Executive Chef Douglas Potts brings a classical flair to the freshest local ingredients since he was raised on the Eastern Shore. The Eastern Shore is teaming with extraordinary bounty and we present it to you with a sense of pride. We look forward to having you dine with us.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The service was great! our server and the busser girls were very kind and attentive, and with a great service attitude, their presentation was impeccable. Congratulations! those are qualities that I are hard to find in this area."

  • "What a wonderful setting! The owners seem to have spared no expense to refurbish what was once a rundown old multi-resident, in town tired building. It looks like they got their money's worth. In addition to being a high end B&B/Inn the restaurant is very well run. Four of us had dinner recently and everyone enjoyed their meals. Luckily we were able to take advantage of "Talbot Dining Week" prices, which helped the budget. Peacock Restaurant is a special occasion destination, whether for Brunch, Afternoon Tea, or for Dinner. The competition in Easton for fine dining and great food has certainly heated up over the last few years, and Peacock is one of the top 3 destinations in town."

  • "We drove 1 1/2 hrs on a Saturday for 1000 points. Also the reviews looked good. The meal and the ambience were outstanding. I had the Osso Bucco that was delicious and just fell off the bone. My wife had the crab cakes ...also excellent.. So, we were invited back on Monday for a six course gourmet meal and wine pairing. It was a memorable evening. The food and wine pairings were perfect and well thought out. The presentation was full of imagination and cleverness. Two top chefs trying to out do each other. Should be worthy of an article in food and wine magazine. We did plan to stay at the inn and it couldn't have been nicer. The owners were very hospitable and we felt at home. We ended up paying more than we thought, but it was worth it."

  • "We were excited about dining at the Peacock Restaurant for my wife's birthday as the Open Table reviews were spectacular. After dining there I had to go back to see if I had the right restaurant as our experience was so different from what we had read. We were in a room with bright lights, fake flowers, no music and for the life of us could not see how anyone would interpret this as romantic. As I was examining the wine list a server plopped down a card which was the menu and said that looking at it might assist with selecting a wine. The menu was quite limited which is not necessarily a problem but when I asked what came with one of the entrees I was told "some kind of vegetables." That sort of sums up our experience. I could go on..."

  • "We've eaten her over 10 times in 4 years, only because it's a wonderful restaurant, as I have rated above. Very consistent with gourmet quality food. Ample servings but not overwhelming portions. The restaurant is the first floor of a beautifully decorated posh style Victorian B & B. The chef's work is outstanding and the service hits the spot. You won't be disappointed. Go there !"

  • "Peacock was special event venue for us. The ambience we experience in our initial visit was fantastic. The owner gave us a guided tour of the B&B and walked us through the renovation of the historic house. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. For Valentines Day we visited the Peacock again. The physical environment was everything we recalled. Service was extremely slow (15 minutes to get menus and get drinks ordered) and our server was unable to answer basic questions about the entres (does it come with potatoes or rice..) The prefix menu was on the expensive side ($60) and the food was good at best. With such as limited menu, better preparation was expected. We will not return."

  • "The setting is beautiful, but the bar tender didn't know what a Bellini is, the service was very slow (but very nice), I got a fork placed on my right, and we were asked twice what our reservation name was, and one table got all the attention from someone who looked like a manager or owner. I would say that a lot of staff training is needed. The wait staff was very nice, but seemed way out of their depth. Not a smoothly run place. Food is good enough."

  • "We absolutely LOVE Peacock Restaurant! It is a wonderful dining experience! The wait staff is impeccable, the chef is amazing, and the ambiance is delightful! I highly recommend you make a reservation today! Once you do, you will be hooked and will keep going back! A definite golden find! Every meal we have had here has been an explosion of flavor for all of the taste buds in your mouth. The chef has a way of reaching the depths of flavor that you didn't know existed! We love the beautifully restored home which has interesting decor which delights the eye. A must try for any foodie!"

  • "Your restaurant works very much at providing a great atmosphere. We had a two person table among large parties and when we asked to have our table moved toward the back near the conservatory, we were quickly accommodated. Great food, and we enjoyed meeting the owner. Our wishes for a great 2014."

  • "Outstanding in every way. A special treat was the vodka assortment. The food was superb ... all of it. Go! You will love it. And even better, stay at the Inn. An absolute treat and great get-away from the insanity that is the Washington metro."

  • "Driving to Easton through a rainy fall evening in heavy traffic is a pretty stressful way to go out for dinner, but all that is gone when you enter the Inn, a beautiful mansion in the heart of historic Easton. The decor is elegant and tasteful, and the Peacock Restaurant makes you feel you've been invited to dine with local gentry, refined yet in no way stuck up. From the first bite of my oyster bisque and salad I knew this was a winner, and the rockfish main course was equally well prepared and presented. My companion greatly enjoyed her leek velouté with roasted chicken and duck breast main course, and we topped things off with delicious home-made ice cream. Truth be told, a little pricier than Open Table indicated, but well worth it."

  • "We enjoyed our meal so much that we ate here again the following night. It was definitely one of the best meals we've ever had and we come from NYC where you can have anything. We frequent different restaurants often and are happy to pay the price for an excellent meal like the one you will find at Peacock. The menu is creative and presentation is beautiful and appetizing. The flavor is phenomenal. The service is outstanding, they are very attentive. We couldn't find one thing we didn't like about this establishment. The oyster soup is an absolute must. We were equally impressed with a NY strip special (cooked perfectly) and the duck. If I were to even pass through Maryland again I would make my schedule fit in a stop at the Peacock."

  • "Both of our meals were out of this world. The Beet Salad was a work of art. Plus, it tasted as good as it looked. The servers were friendly and the decor brought you back to more formal era. It was classy without being stuffy. Can't wait to return when in Easton."

  • "We happened upon Peacock (thanks to Open Table) and were thrilled to find the excellent reviews were all well-founded. A small but interesting menu - very seasonal with duck and wild boar, both delicious - was supplemented by some great sounding specials. The owner guided us to the perfect bottle of wine to accompany our meal. The enclosed porch is a beautiful setting. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the service attentive, knowledgeable and not intrusive. After dinner we retired to the lounge - we didn't want to leave and the owner was happy for us to linger and savor the dining experience."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner immensely at the Peacock Restaurant located at the the Inn at 202 Dover. Our appetizers and entrees were very well prepared, and could match any dishes that we have had in places like New York City, Los Angeles, or Paris. We enjoyed chatting with the owner, Ron, and the service was great. I would highly recommend this place to all diners in the metropolitan DC/Baltimore area."
