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…

*** HOURS CHANGE: Following Columbus Day weekend, we have moved into our Winter Hours. The main change is that we are not open for dinner on Sunday evenings from now until Easter Sunday. The New Hours are Tuesday – Saturday 5:00 on. Sunday Brunch from 11 – 3.

***The Guest Quarters at the Inn units are booking well! If you are interested – or know someone who is – visit our NEW PAGE on the Guest Quarters. That link leads to full descriptions of the units, a picture gallery, and how to book. We added the link to the top of the website home page too – see above! You can also book through us directly.

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!
