"Charming Inn Steeped in History"

Dine at the inn where British soldiers stayed during their occupation of the Shoreline in 1812 and soak in the quaint charm that cloaks the tasteful confines. The restaurant at The Griswold Inn, lovingly referred to by locals as "The Gris", serves traditional New England fare in a relaxed and lively setting that is favored by locals and tourists alike. Their seasonal menu takes advantage of fresh seafood, regional meats and produce whenever possible to ensure an authentic flavor for their dishes. Christmas is also an excellent time to visit, and you can bet on a quartet of carolers stopping at each table to sing your song of choice. On Sundays, come for their famous Hunt Breakfast, which offers a delectable variety of breakfast and lunch entrées in a buffet style. Every night of the week, there is live music in The Taproom, and guests can pick from a range of savory bites to accompany their choice of beer.
