We had a great family dinner here while I was visiting my hometown. The menu was varied and my crab cake was great with a lovely corn relish on the side. It was quiet, and the service was good.

Our family of 4 stopped here for dinner. The atmosphere was loud but cozy and the food was good. Unfortunately a hair was found in one dish. The staff immediately and efficiently addressed the issue, but it put a bit of a damper on the meal. If not for that I would have rated the experience 4.5 stars.

Banning's Inn is an attractive place with really good food and caring service. We enjoyed their rack of lamb and grilled pork chop. Both dishes were well seasoned and prepared. Our server, Amanda, could not have been nicer nor more efficient. We will definitely return to Banning's when in Easton.

Visited Bannings late in the evening after a late flight and ride in from Baltimore. Ordered the scallops and rack of lamb which was delicious. Plenty of beers on tap and a great selection of wine. Nice place to sit at the bar or enjoy romantic dinner.

I loved this place. We took a Valentines trip to Easton for a few days and visited this place twice. Friendly conversation among the folks at the bar. Best banana cream pie in North America.

We stopped in between errands to have a an believable chicken and spinach soup. It was just so good and then they made a specialty drink we requested but they had never made. They did a great job and it was a fun place to experience. No request was too little or big!! Highly recommend.

We were there for lunch and a little nervous as it took just over 10 minutes to get water. But things picked up after that service-wise. I had the oyster broth which was very good and huge fresh oysters, 5 of them. They were very tender. I wished later I'd asked for some hot sauce or something to add more... More

My wife and I needed some lunch and walked into Banning's Tavern. We were seated at a very comfortable booth by the window and check out the menu. Our server Ashleigh provided us with excellent service. I ordered the Fried Oyster Entree and an Ultimate Margarita. My wife ordered the Ploughman's Lunch. We shred each others' wonderful meals. Fantastic Place!

Thank LordThomMohr
