Follow up meal to the Inn at Easton

My husband and I are celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary this weekend with two nights at the Inn at Easton. We have reservations at the Inn for dinner on Sat night. Where should we go Sunday night? Also, any 'can't miss' lunch suggestions? Much thanks in advance for a perfect weekend...

  1. We ate at the Inn in Easton in July and had a fantastic meal. I would recommend dining at Scossa, an Italian restaurant in Easton, Sunday night. We didn't have the chance to dine there, but sat at the bar and had cocktails and appetizers and were impressed. It is also a beautiful space, and you can walk there from the Inn. The other option is Tilghman Island Inn, which is a bit of a drive, but a beautiful location. Although the food is not as well executed and "fancy" as the Inn at Easton we had a lovely meal there as well. They offer a $25 wine pairing option, although the wine was not memorable, they did serve a lot of it. If you want to go to the other extreme, you could always have crabs in St. Michael's at the Crab Claw. Great place for lunch as well, especially if the weather is nice.

    1. I would recommend Out of Fire in Easton for your other dinner. It's a totally different experience, more casual than the Inn, but it was quite good.

      1. Yes, Out of the Fire is a couple blocks away and is a fun/noisier alternative. It's a lively place with a cozy wine bar in the back and seating along the bar of the open kitchen. Nice wine selection - good hummus app and pizzas (avoid the margherita), plus steak and seafood entrees. I've never had a bad time there. It has a SoCal vibe - quite a change for stuffy Easton.
        Mason's and Legal Spirits would be fine for lunch. (Avoid the bar across from the courthouse.) Also, a few yrs back, we had a decent meal at General Tanuki's (sp), across from OOTF - don't know if it's still there.

        1. re: Sop

          thanks. we were going to hit out of the fire for a lunch i think. any thoughts on 208 talbot or perry cabin?

        2. too funny, i was just about to suggest 208 or the Inn at Perry Cabin before I read your last post.

          was in st. michael's last weekend and looked forward to returning to 208, but were warned by all the inn keepers that it was under new ownership since our last and oh so memorable visit. we took our chances and had a truly stellar, memorable meal. nothing changed in our book. though apparently there were a few months of mixed reviews while they were getting on their feet.

          the Inn is always fabulous, but depends what you're in the mood food. 208 is more intimate.

          heard great things from all the locals about TownDock (i think?), right on the water in St. Michael's. That's apparently the place for fresh seafood, far superior to the crab claw, so we were told.
