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…

“Thanks for the Memories!”
The time has come – the restaurant has closed!

It has been a wonderful chapter in our lives and we hope in yours as well. We have made many friends and even more wonderful memories, and consider it all a job well done! Lee and Jan look forward to an actual and real retirement, with a sense of pride that we added to the community of North Beach in very positive ways. 

 So, here are the important details:

** The Guest Quarters are not affected by the restaurant’s closure. Click the link above for GQ information. 

**The new property owner has leased the Westlawn space to a new restauranteur, who is working toward getting open later in the season! We’ll send a final newsletter when we have more information.

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.

Ron G.

A special combination of food, music, community and genuine pleasure in the company of others. Rare and treasured … keep on truckin’!

We love the Westlawn Inn. Lee, Jan and Will are phenomenal hosts. The Westlawn is upscale but not pretentious, a bit more formal but not fancy. The food is good, the servers are great and when we eat there, it’s not just a meal, it’s an experience.

Ian G.

We love the atmosphere of the restaurant and bar. Sitting on the porch is great when the weather permits and the food is always delicious.

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!
