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 on ...
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!
Surprising find in Fryeburg
All the reviews we saw on this restaurant were excellent so we decided to try it. The calamari appetizer is amazing. The trout dinner was also outstanding and the fingerling potatoes that accompanied it were just right. Swordfish dinner was also very good. Will definitely go back again!
White Mountain View Cocktail
The Oxford House is a great place for a summer/fall cocktail on the back lawn, looking across the meadows to the White Mountains. The food and service inside, either on the screened porch or in the fireplaced living room are great. Warm and inviting old new england charm. The downstairs bar is reminiscent of olde England with stone and brick walls and plenty of warm libations. Enjoy!
Great drinks and food
We went in the winter so it was cold, but the inn was cute and had a nice front porch that would be nice to sit and have a drink in warmer weather. It was a good thing we made reservations on a Sunday for the long weekend as they were completely booked up. We went downstairs to the small and cozy bar for a drink before dinner. Megan, the bartender was very nice and helpful and recommended a drink. I had a white cosmo and sangria martini which were great. The bar was small but could reserve seats down there for dinner. We got the filet which was amazing and the chicken which takes about 30-40 min to cook but surprisingly came out around 20 min. We asked for the front window seat which was nice and romantic. If you are in the area, check out the Oxford Inn.
Steak Frite Groupie
Great diverse menu from small plates to bistro to full entrees. Love the Steak Frite bistro meal. Always done perfectly. Mussels as a appetizer to share were delicious. We had the spicy ones. Sat right in front of the fire-- fine dining on a quiet weeknight !
Worth a trip
The dining room at the Oxford House Inn is worth a trip. The dining rooms are cozy, service is thoughtful, the menu is local, fresh, and seasonal, and the chef is superb. There's a great wine list and plenty of local beer to choose from. Don't miss this gem in the western Maine foothills.
We found this restaurant on our way back from a trip to Bridgeton. We are SO lucky! The food is great the drinks are creative gems the service is always spot on...The worst comment I have about this place is that I prefer to sit anywhere but the far back room.
Metro food served is out little corner of Maine
The Oxford House Inn is the best kept secret in Maine. New York and Boston quality fine dining being served by a husband and wife team of food artists. The dining experience is superb, the food is amazing and they serve the best cocktails around. The staff couldn't more pleasant and efficient.
We have eaten at the Oxford House Inn on several occasions and we have always been more than satisfied. We just ate there last Saturday and enjoyed their Fall menu. I had the Haddock...Yum, my daughters both had the Steak Frites - double yum, and my husband had the sesame encrusted chicken . The bread is great along with the flavored butter, delicious drinks, decadent desserts rounded out the night. I look forward to our next opportunity to eat at The Oxford House Inn!
Saturday night out
Wonderful little restaurant right over the state line from NH - cozy with excellent food. The fireplace is a bonus. We appreciated the menu with some interesting features above and beyond the usual potato and vegetable choice but some very interesting variations. Definitely check it out!
The BEST resturant in the Mt Washington Valley
As part of my previous job, I used to travel and entertain customers all over the country. The Oxford House is easily in the upper echelon of restaurants in any foodie city. It is easily in the top 5 for Portland, Charleston, SC, top 10 in San Francisco, Dallas even in the top for NYC or Chicago. Wonderfully consistent and has very nice gluten free or vegetarian options. Love this place!
Small town gem!
I love this place. We go every 6 months or so and it's better each time. Our waitress, Megan was on point. The food was absolutely delicious-I ordered an entrée and my honey had three apps-we were both very pleased. The only gripe I might have is once a spotlight was removed from overhead of our table, I could barely see my food. But it didn't stop me from practically licking the plate. So lucky to have this within 10 miles of our little home!
Always have a great experience at the Oxford House
The food is great. The service exceptional. The atmosphere in the dining room is elegant and romantic while the pub downstairs is casual and yet still the same amazing menu!! Never had an experience less than great at this spot!!
