Westlawn Inn - The Quintessential Experience Fine Dining, Drink, & Music in North Beach MD

The Westlawn Inn is a family owned and operated restaurant, bar and live music venue located just one block from the Chesapeake Bay in the charming resort town of North Beach, Maryland. Opened in 2004 in a renovated Arts & Crafts style building that had been a guesthouse for nearly a century, the Westlawn has the look and feel of an old-time inn — where the outside world stops and dining becomes a nightly experience to cherish.

This Just Inn…

Dining Out: Food, Music and Fun at the Westlawn Inn


Your hosts: Will Travers (manager & bartender) with
Jan and Lee Travers (proprietors)

What our patrons are saying …

Dining on the porch on a beautiful spring, summer or fall evening is a special bonus to the lovely seasonal cuisine. An experience not to be missed.

The 9200 Club

As a lifelong musician, Lee Travers has turned the Westlawn into an award-winning live music venue dubbed The 9200 Club. Every Saturday night, and one or two Fridays a month, the Westlawn hosts regionally acclaimed bands in genres that span the history of modern music — from instrumental jazz and R&B to Dixieland jazz and soft rock.

Bands play in the 44-seat main dining room, creating an intimate environment with regular interaction between musicians and dinner guests. Lee, a rock guitarist whose music career began in the 1960s, appears on stage with some of the best rock musicians in the area. Like the fine food and drinks, this is music to be savored among friends and family enjoying a relaxed meal together.

Take a look at our upcoming music & events. We hope you’ll join us!
