We were one of only 2 couples in the restaurant. We were there for a dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was very high class and our waiter was exceptional. After dinner we met the owner he was gracious enough to take us on our own private tour of the inn.

Ron Mitchell owns and operates this wonderful restaurant in a beautiful old home in Easton, MD. It is upscale, quiet, excellent service, great wine list (Ron will help you find a great wine to have with your meal), the chef is flexible...in short l, it’s a great venue for a really nice meal in a nice setting where you can have a quiet conversation and celebrate a special occasion. They made a gluten-free birthday cake for my girlfriend (now my fiancée as we got engaged at the restaurant that night) that was delicious, gorgeous, and decadently chocolate.
It’s on the expensive side but we’ll worth it.
Best of luck and thank you again Ron.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and the evening, service and food could not have been better. I have dined at the Peacock Restaurant a few times however this last visit reminded me that I need to return sooner and with more frequency. One of the best restaurants, IMO, on the Eastern Shore.

This is the very best restaurant in Easton and Talbot County for excellent classical cuisine in an elegant dining setting. Prices are quite reasonable given the quality of the dining experience. The menu varies with innovative and tasty seasonal entrées, all excellently preprepared and presented. A good selection of interesting American and French wines at all price points. The staff is well trained and attentive to every detail. Spoil yourself and your guests at this magnificent restaurant in an impeccably restored beau-arts mansion from Easton's historic past .

Walking into The Inn at 202 in Easton, MD., protrudes a well thought out creation to make one feel very welcomed into the Mitchell's beautiful home. The Peacock Restaurant in this home exemplifies what good cuisine food is all about....right down to the presentation on a plate. Chef Potts exceeded my expectations from the chilled Cucumber soup with Crabmeat to my Seared Sea Scallops with his homemade pasta in succulent lovely light sauce. I am all about food and presentation since I was one of the Southern Living Cook Off finalist (15 finalist out of of 40,000 entries) and a mad scientist in my kitchen to create the finest in fine cuisine and especially baking making it the food healthy and enjoyable to the palate. this chef of obviously high quality, has certainly gone way and beyond. We will be back soon! Thank you Chef Potts. Nancy and Bob Fazakerley

The Peacock was wonderful from the moment we entered the restaurant from the attentive waiter, special martinis, the elegant food including beautiful and delicious first courses, the special entree of wild boar cooked perfectly, and an entree of squid ink negra linguine with perfectly seared scallops and sauteed spinach. White table cloths, exquisite food presentation, exceptional staff and a visit from the the chef to our table all made our dinner that evening quite special. Next time that we are in Easton we will also try to stay the night at the Inn at 202 Dover where the Peacock Restaurant is.

We were in town for the weekend and chose the Peacock Restaurant from Open Table and were so happy we did! The food, service and ambiance were all top notch. Ron, the owner chose a wonderful white wine to accompany our crab dishes. The wine was not something we would have normally picked. We had a wonderful evening.

The attention to detail and wait service were outstanding. The staff went out of it's way to accommodate our request for a special Mother's Day celebration - even set us up a private table outside in the garden on a patio with trellis, very intimate ambiance. All the food was outstanding and the chef paid us a visit to say hello. Our cosmo and dirty martinis were outstanding. Recommended wine (Bliss cabernet) was well received and enjoyed by all. Highly recommend the Peacock to celebrate special moments or any time for a well-deserved treat !

Do not go to this place. Grossly overpriced, mediocre food, hideously pretentious. The wine list tells you nothing about the wines on offer ("Cabernet sauvignon", no other info). Needless to say, the wine wasn't very good. The servers try and they were nice, but since it's pretentious they're obnoxiously present and overly servile instead of just getting the job done in an unobtrusive way. Truly awful.

We arrived well before opening and were graciously admitted for a spot in the very comfortable lounge. Adult beverages were available and they offered to seat us before opening so we could order. We had the lobster poached in a butter sauce and bacon wrapped venison. Both entrees were cooked just right and the presentation was lovely. The ice cream dessert was flavorful and coffee delightful. Server Lynn was attentive, courteous nd helpful throughout. We'll be back!

Our dinner at The Peacock was just fantastic. The service was so personal, our host was happy to answer our questions and show us around the inn. He even remembered a stay my parents had enjoyed more than 5 years ago, something that was very special to my mother who was dining with us. The food was absolutely wonderful. Every single thing is made in house and it shows. If you have the opportunity to dine here, take it!

The restaurant is located on the first floor of a beautiful home that also acts as a b&b. We were seated in the front room overlooking the road. The inside is beautifully restored and provides a quiet and cozy environment for a romantic dinner.

The food was phenomenal. The food definitely seems to be seasonally inspired. They served sweet potato rolls with cinnamon butter. We shared the fig and goat cheese salad as a starter. It was perfect for a fall evening. We also ordered the roasted bacon wrapped venison with sweet potatoes and a baked scallop and shrimp au gratin dish. We shared creme brûlée for dessert.
The serving size was very generous for fine dining.

The service was great. The servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and were able to make recommendations.

We will definitely return to the Peacocks whenever we are in the area.

What a delight to return to this outstanding restaurant which delivers the whole package: delicious food, great service and a warm and welcoming ambiance. Peacock Restaurant is the epitome of fine dining. We started with a flavorful pumpkin soup and a serving of baked dates stuffed with blue cheese and topped with duck confit. Our entrees were a generous, perfectly cooked beef tenderloin in a flavorful mushroom sauce and an entree of large lobster sections steamed in butter and beautifully presented in a warm flavorful sauce. Desserts were a warm peach bread pudding and a creme brulee. A bottle of smooth Chardonnay accompanied the meal. We arrived happy and left ecstatic that such an outstanding meal was enjoyed locally with such perfect surroundings and expertise. Please make a date to reward your life with such a welcoming experience. You deserve it.

We dined on a Sunday evening. As soon as we arrived, we realized that the air conditioning in the Inn was not working - the temperature must have been at least 90 degrees. Even so, the rest of our dining experience was perfect. Although the menu was somewhat limited, each member of our party ordered a different entree and no one was disappointed. Although it was a bit of a wait between the time we ordered and the time we first saw our food (at least 1/2 hour), it turned out to be worth the weight. The chef definitely has a way with sauces - thegrilled filet of beef, the poached lobster and the bacon-wrapped venison were all perfectly sauced and a delight to eat. Four out of four clean plate, even though portion size was untypically larged for such a classy restaurant. Our server was attentive and professional and shared photos of the building restoration during our wait to be served. We'll be back if they ever get their A/C fixed. We would have given 5 stars if it had been cooler.

The food was very good. The service was great. It was too hot in the dining room. We were sweating during our meal. The wine list was limited and they didn't have the vintages listed. But we found a great bottle of '13 Daniel Pinot Noir to go with our meals. My wife's filet was outstanding. My wild boar was a little chewy, but the sauces were outstanding.
