About The Oxford House Inn
Culinary Institute of America graduate Chef/Co-Owner Jonathan Spak crafts his seasonally changing menus to showcase the best that local farms have to offer. While overall his style is considered contemporary American cuisine, influences and techniques from Asia, Southwestern United States and France are often incorporated. Hand cut steaks, fresh Maine seafood, homemade pastas, fresh salads and decadent desserts are creatively presented. Choose to dine fireside, on our popular screened in front porch, or on our glassed in back porch that offers spectacular sunset mountain views. You may also dine at JONATHAN'S, our lively pub. We have been given Four Stars by The Maine Sunday Telegram and named "Best In-Town Maine Inn" by Yankee Magazine. Please note that specific table or dining room requests made through OpenTable may not be available. Please call us directly if you have a dining preference.

We travelled from SC to enjoy the ambiance of this unique place. Definitely deserves the TOP 100 rating on Open Table. We feel Oxford House is deserving of the second 5.0 we have given in over 100 Open Table dinners we have eaten.

Interesting old house. The sign coming from North Conway was hard to see. Cocktail of bourbon and maple was a good choice. A pasta special of lemon peas, and home made pasta was delicious . The duck and pancake was disappointing . Wasn't sure what I was ordering.my companion had scallops that were good. Based On the surroundings this is a good bet to eat in town.

Always enjoy the Oxford House Inn. It is our go to Special occasion spot. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful meal. Always enjoy the ambiance of the dining room as it reminds me of the Inns we stayed at on our honeymoon in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.

2nd time dining here this week...and it was just as amazing as the first time. We are camping in the area and decided "no cooking"'this week. It turned out to be a great decision. I have already made reservations to come back in October!

Great tasty food and beautiful décor. The tuna appetizer was fantastic.
For dessert, the crème brulee was too liquid and with too much sugar crust however the chocolate boudino was amazing
I would go again to try the other interesting offering on the menu

We have dined at the Oxford House during our NH lake vacation for several years now. The Oxford House never disappoints! The food is always fresh and expertly prepared. The service is always attentive and timely. We were celebrating our sons engagement this year so I requested to be seated in an area with a mountain view. They were very accommodating and gave us a wonderful table in a quiet room overlooking the New England landscape.

Oxford Inn restaurant is our favorite spot for a special dinner every time we're in the area (I've been known to make up reasons to go). Don't expect a quick meal - the kitchen is small and everything is made from scratch. Sit back, enjoy the basket of bread (yes, it will ruin your appetite but you'll be so happy), a glass of wine and prepare to have a truly amazing meal.

Hannah was our wonderful waitress/server. she more than made up for the not-so-wonderful service from our last 2 visits. we were almost not coming back but decided to give you another chance. Food and wine was great and I would recommend Hannah as a server to anyone.

The food was fantastic. The service was a little off. We were not offered bread when tables around us were and it took along time for the entrees to arrive. We had to ask for the check as we were attending an event but had allotted an hour and 1/2 for dinner. I would definitely go back but either go earlier if I had a time constraint or when timing doesn't matter.

We were staying at the inn for the night to attend a concert at Stone Mountain Arts Center that evening. Pre dinner cocktail was a Vermont maple old fashion, delicious, for appetizers we shared the chefs pickle plate and a half portion of the lemon pappardelle. The main courses were the seared yellow fin tuna and jerk rubbed pan roasted chicken breast followed by vanilla bean creme brûlée and lemon blueberry dacquoise for dessert, all were exceptional. The hosts and wait staff were spot on assuring us enough time to make it to the concert on time. Breakfast the next morning was fantastic and very relaxing as we watched the birds at the feeders outside.

The Inn is located on 302 and is easy to get to and there is adequate parking available. The food is very good and not over priced. The rooms offer a nice comfortable place to enjoy diner. The room at the back of the Inn has a lovely view of the Saco river and the mountains behind it. Downstairs is a "pub" room which can be a bit loud depending on the crowd. All and all a nice place to meet friends and enjoy a nice evening together.

Amazing meal at Oxford House Inn! Not only was the food amazing, but some of the best service I've ever had. My boyfriend and I ordered a variety of dishes to share, and the kitchen carefully split each dish into two and served just one meal at a time to make our dining experience that much more enjoyable. Also worth to note that while some of the main courses are a bit pricier, you could easily order a few appetizers/bistro plates to share and still have a delicious meal without a huge price tag. Will definitely be back!
Always looking for an excuse!
My Husband and I were so happy when Jonathon and Natalie moved to Fryeburg. We frequent The Oxford House Inn every chance we can. It is a truly special place. We are always looking for an excuse to dine their. We stop in after Mass on Saturdays, Mother's Day, Birthday Celebrations, special anniversaries and especially when we want to show off to visiting friends and relatives.
Love the Oxford House Inn-now and always!
We have been here about a dozen times. It is by far the nicest restaurant in our rural area. The other night was as good as ever. I had lobster & corn fritters and risotto. My husband had duck. Absolutely delicious. But the service is really outstanding. Lastly, I love the cocktail (can't remember the name) with gin, marishino cherry liquer and crème de violet. Yum. Thanks for being such a great place for a date!

First time eating here. It was fantastic - from cocktails & appetizers all the way through to dessert & coffee.
Perfect service allowing us to catchup w/ friends we hadn't seen in awhile but still keeping food & drink coming.
Somewhat different menu offering wonderfully flavored foods.
We hope to return again when in the area. Good price performance as well. Bravo!
