    Last night the dinner was exceptional! The pork shank I had was delectable, the meat was so mist and tender it fell off the bone. The Belgian Dark Chocolate Marquise dessert was the best chocolate confection I've ever eaten! A delightful meal!

    We really enjoyed dinner. The food was wonderful. The ribeye cooked perfectly, my husband had not heard halibut before and he loved it. The sides were perfect. I loved the bread, but we had wondered for so long if they served bread, decided they didn't, then she arrived with it as her buzzer was going off to come to the kitchen to get out dinners. We were there early and there was nobody else seated in the dining room with us, so we were a bit surprised by how long it took to both order our drinks and then to order dinner. After our food was delivered, she never said is there anything I can get, she just ran away. And then never checked on us. Just seemed strange. It was $111 for two of us, with 1 drink each and no apps. The ribeye was Market Price which i forgot to look at in the bill.

    We have been frequent guests at Oxford House Inn, and have always enjoyed the food, service and overall ambiance there. We love to sit at the bar downstairs as you certainly have your peace & quiet while enjoying your food and drinks. We will definitely be back there many times again.

    My wife and I have come to the Oxford House Inn for our wedding anniversary at least 10 years in a row. This is such a great place to go and the food is always to die for as it was last night. The staff is great and they are very attentive. This is the best restaurant in the area for sure and we will be back again.

    Wonderful food every time we go. Service was a little slow this time, due, I’m sure, to the leaf peeper crowd. Bibb salad is excellent, and so is everything else! Delicious cocktails too!

    I enjoyed a dinner and a breakfast as an overnight guest at the inn. For dinner, I ordered the vegan Mediterranean plant-based "chicken" with grilled vegetables and Israeli pearl couscous and red pepper coulis. It was utterly delicious, beautifully presented, and plentiful (a good thing, as I'd just spent the afternoon hiking in White Mountains National Park). For breakfast the following morning, with another day of hiking ahead of me, I ordered scrambled eggs, toast, and fried potatoes. I appreciated that most of the ingredients were locally sourced (l mean right-down-the-road local!). The eggs were perfectly cooked, the potatoes perfectly seasoned, and the toast was made with "real," artisanal bread--not the usual wimpy, commercial stuff that turns to mush in your mouth. Plus, the view from my table in the glassed-in porch was lovely: In the distance, green meadows undulating to mist-shrouded purple mountains; and right under my nose, goldfinches enjoying their breakfast, too, at the feeder on the other side of the glass.

    When we head to our place in Western Maine, the Oxford House is a highlight. We have been enjoying dinner here for more than 10 years. Always good! Last night we had a party of 5 with our mom, turning 100 in 2 weeks joining in. I asked for a table at the front of the house so she would not have to walk as far. A resounding NO! "Your reservation for 5 is a table in the back." They could have easily moved a chair and swapped the reservation with the other. I was taken aback this manager would not take 5 minutes for a kindness.

    We requested reservations on the porch, which was lovely except for the fan noise...needed the fan as it was hot, but wished the fan was quieter as it was difficult to have a conversation. Food was very good but also very expensive, but the quality and quantity was excellent.

    The food was really delicious, but we were especially impressed with the fact that there were two vegan options included in the Entrees. This is so unusual, but so very much appreciated -- and the two offerings, Darling Chicken and Impossible Burger, were really wonderful. Our server was also really delightful! The view from the back window out onto the White Mountains was spectacular.

    We stayed at the inn and ate at the restaurant. The food was absolutely outstanding. Our cocktails were tasty, the charcuterie plate was delicious, and the entrees were stellar. The scallops were the standout - the rice tasted like a creamy risotto with some corn cream and was just amazing. The presentation was on par with fine dining but in a much more rustic atmosphere. We also had breakfast the following morning and it was also top notch. Fresh cinnamon buns, and breakfast to order. The eggs with cheese curds were amazing. Would absolutely eat here again. 5/5.

    Easily the best pesto in my life. Excellent use of fresh in season local produce-- which in August means the most perfect tomatoes and green beans. Scalloped and Ribeye cooked to perfection. You won't be sorry if you have something to celebrate!
