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.

Cautious Precautions!

  • Our menu is available right on your phone on the front page of our website OR you can use our printed menus that are sanitized between each use.
  • Our servers will be wearing masks and washing hands frequently. Their personal health and exposure situation will also monitored closely, of course. They will keep an eye on your needs from as much distance as possible.
  • Wipes, tissues, and hand sanitizer stations are strategically placed by any doors you may need to access (particularly the entrance and the rest rooms).
  • Our tables are spaced apart, both in distance and time, and are completely cleaned between customers.
  • Food and drink preparation will be done with our customary high standard of cleanliness, “kicked up a notch.”
  • Our premium-grade dishwasher will sanitize and sterilize our dishes, cutlery, and glasses for your use.

We could use your help! Please do:

  • Stay home if you have any chance of being symptomatic or asymptomatic.
  • Step aside or back to allow at least 6 feet between you and our other patrons.
  • Wear a mask until seated. You may remove it at your table, but if you leave your table, please put it back on.
  • Use our wipes, tissues, and hand sanitizer freely.
  • Share with us any suggestions for ways we can make you feel safe and comfortable.
  • Be patient. We are dealing with a variety of challenges and are doing our best.

We will keep our veranda open all year round, for any evening that might be comfortable, if you dress warmly, and perhaps BYOBlanket.  We have limited outdoor heaters at this time. For indoor dining, we have spaced out our tables both in placement and times, using both our upstairs and downstairs dining rooms.

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!
