We have been regulars to the Westlawn Inn and there is much to like about it, but our recent dinner left much to be desired. Our first recommendation is to avoid the special of the evening; it seems like the kitchen hasn't practiced enough to produce the special--something we've noticed previously. The lamb chops were tough as leather (cooked medium-rare)... More

I enjoy quality food and drink at this family owned establishment on a regular basis. You can dine indoors or on the wrap around porch of this historic Inn. With a reservation you can enjoy live entertainment of various genres on Saturday nights and some Friday nights. Suite style will be available here later 2017. The Inn is located one... More

They have the best crab soup. Also owner was very nice and accommodating. However this is not a kid type restaurant so leave them home. Would recommend for Valentine's Day or adult outing

Underwhelming. For the area (North Beach), this is a 'nice' restaurant, but that's about it. It is trying too hard to be upscale and fancy and the food definitely suffers. Service was spotty, the waitress wasn't big on checking up on the table. I was there with friends and we all ordered different things and none of them were great.... More

The Westlawn Inn frequently gets mixed reviews. It may be the chef on that night or it may be the menu prices which may seem high. We've had mixed results earlier this year with softshell crabs that were seriously overdone. But we like the ambiance--it's one of the best settings for a nice dinner in the Twin Beaches--so recently we... More

Had a great meal ! We each had the salmon which was cooked perfectly! Friendly service! The rolls were divine! Would definitely go back. Had outdoor seating but it was too warm for us to try. Would love to try that!

First off if your interested in Jazz and want to listen, you have to make a reservation. Apparently the Jazz is in the dining room only. So if you just want to enjoy some music and drinks, not here. We showed up to listen and were rudely told you need a reservation. So we asked if we could take the... More

We went here on a Sunday night to celebrate friends wedding anniversary. The server was attentive and food delicious. My favorite was the spaghetti squash and salmon entree.

Went with family including a curious and active 2 yr old..they sat us out on the corner of a patio that extends around 2 sides of the classic old restaurant It's 90 years old and classy but casual Excellent scallops, filet with risotto was perfect. Tempted by the veal as well Try the fried red tomatoes with crab appetizer
