Culinary Institute of America graduate Chef/Co-Owner Jonathan Spak crafts his seasonally changing menus to showcase the best that local farms have to offer. While overall his style is considered contemporary American cuisine, influences and techniques from Asia, Southwestern United States and France are often incorporated. Hand cut steaks, fresh Maine seafood, homemade pastas, fresh salads and decadent desserts are creatively presented. Choose to dine fireside, on our popular screened in front porch, or on our glassed in back porch that offers spectacular sunset mountain views. You may also dine at JONATHAN'S, our lively pub. We have been given Four Stars by The Maine Sunday Telegram and named "Best In-Town Maine Inn" by Yankee Magazine. Please note that specific table or dining room requests made through OpenTable may not be available. Please call us directly if you have a dining preference.

The food was certainly decent and well presented, but all four of us came away feeling a little underwhelmed in terms of its creativity and flavor. Admittedly, we're accustomed to more flavorful, ethnic foods, and this was decidedly New England, so what we felt wasn't inspired, others who enjoy more understated seasoning might really appreciate. The price of the meals suggested they would be a bit more imaginative and wowing than we found them to be. For the right diners, the Oxford House would be ideal. For us, though, it was just a little too mainstream--too similar to too many other restaurants in the Mount Washington Valley.

Our return visit to the Oxford House Inn was no less spectacular than the first visit. Once again we were made to feel right at home in this comfy, welcoming space. The freezing temperatures outside were banished by the warmth of an open fire in the receiving room. Service was again impeccable - professional, friendly, helpful and attentive. Even though it had been a year, our waitress remembered us and treated us like royalty. The food was incredible - we decided to start with the Winter Board featuring a beautiful Camembert flanked by house-made rillette and pickled onion jam. We were a bit unimaginative since we all had the Grilled Filet Mignon, served with cheddar smashed fingerling potatoes and garlicky kale, topped with an amazing Bearnaise. The meat was superb, cooked perfectly and infinitely tender. We wrapped up with a trio of desserts - the Meyer Lemon Budino, Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee and the Dark Chocolate Molten Cake. The sweets were each magnificent and a perfect ending to a glorious meal. We did start with a pair of very well-made craft cocktails - the Maple Manhattan and the Classic Margarita and had a lovely bottle of South African wine made by a native of Freiburg, ME, where the Oxford House is located. Truly another memorable experience and one that will have us coming back again and again.

We always enjoy the Oxford House. We are locals and it is wonderful to have such a restaurant 10 minutes from out house.

Best mussels I have ever had - by a long shot. Wait staff was extremely professional, and service was fantastic. Value for money was also very high!

This is our absolute favorite go to for date night--made all the more special by celebrating New Year's eve with friends on this particular visit. The prixe fixe menu was delectable with choices capturing local delicacies (Maine salmon and beets) to staple holiday dining (filet mignon with Bernaise) and everything in between. Perfectly portioned so the 5 courses did not overly fill anyone but rather left all completely satiated. Chef Jonathan's mastery of food pairings make the most basic ingredients divine and all without trying to hard-he has the art of presenting fine food with simplicity and style.

We have only been there for dinner. Excellent food. Bread to die for. Most excellent salad I ever had. Fennel sausage bites, smokehouse almonds, Bermuda onion, clementines, with orange balsamic vinegar. We were never rushed. We had lots of time to enjoy wine and talk, as the full dining room was not noisy. This was the second time there. Previously we visited in summer with the fantastic view of Mt Washington. This time we were there in winter with the fireplace going. There is a private residential school in the town and it is near summer and winter activities so a reservation is a good idea. Nice wine list.

Every time we eat here we have an outstanding experience whether it is a burger, the best around, or one of their many creative and more elevated dishes. We love it as there is a simple everyday menu as well as a fine dining elevated menu that updates regularly. Always an awesome night of dining!

Phenomenal experience again at The Oxford House Inn. We dined here two evening during our vacation and we were not disappointed. The flavor combinations were delightful and gave us many ideas to try to replicate in our own kitchens. Thanks to all of the folks who make this restaurant such a wonderful place.

EXCELLENT as always! A go to place for us when ever we’re in the area. The ever changing drink menu is phenomenal and the food is always perfect. Staff is wonderful as well. We dined in the basement bar area for the first time, usually up stairs. It was nice and cozy and a more relaxed space. Thanks for a great visit! Look forward to seeing you again soon!
