Thank you for welcoming me and my son - the meal was outstanding and the service excellent. I particularly appreciated that we were not rushed, even though our reservation was for 830 on Thursday night - thanks to the excellent waitstaff!

Dining Bar
Easton
About the restaurant
The Stewart is an intimate bar-and-lounge in the heart of Easton, MD, with an unparalleled focus on the very finest of single malt Scotch whiskeys and vintage Champagnes. Upon entrance, guests are transported to a sphere of sheer refinement and spirit sophistication where one of the most impressive assemblages of Scotch in America is gloriously ensconced in the eloquent Federal Street enclave. An elegant evening progresses in an atmosphere of updated and distinguished Highland splendor: gleaming dark woods, handsomely refurbished period seating, gilt-framed oil paintings of Highland scenes, an intricately pargeted plaster ceiling, and, naturally, tartans galore. A crackling fire in the cooler months provides cozy ambient undertones within an 18th century walnut and brass trumeau chimney.

From the moment you open the door, you will know you picked the right place. The attention to the details is wonderful. The Retriever bar is fantastic… the oyster selection and servers knowledge of each oysters essence is superb. I had the lamb street tocos and my partner the lobster roll. Terrific!!! The craft cocktails we enjoyed were equally superb…. Even the quality of the chairs and barstools made you feel perfectly at home…. We were only disappointed by the coleslaw, very disappointed! Maybe we were there on an off night. It appeared to be homemade, but didn’t live up to the excellent character of this great experience!

About the restaurant
The Wardroom is situated on a prominent corner in historic downtown Easton, Maryland, in what was formerly The Brick Hotel — considered a marvel of its time in the mid-19th century. The gastronomic, European-style shop and bistro offers handmade pastas, house-cured meats, and artisanal chocolates from top French chocolatier, La Maison du Chocolat. Both a pasta and wine bar, the Wardroom’s menu consists of authentic Italian pasta dishes, cheese and charcuterie plates customized for each guest, and seasonal salads and antipasto dishes. The basement houses an extensive wine cellar and intimate tasting room called The Locker, as well as a temperature-controlled cheese “cave,” and a kitchen where chefs produce fresh pasta each day.
