Circa 1776. One of the country's oldest continuously operating inns, the Griswold is also known for its important maritime art collection. On Sundays, indulge in the popular Hunt Breakfast that was originally served at the request of the British after they invaded the harbor during the War of 1812. Enjoy lively music nightly in the handsome, award-winning Tap Room. Dine on authentic American cuisine, featuring New England favorites and inspired orignials, in one of the five dining rooms: The Covered Bridge, The Gun Room, The Library, The Essex Room and The Steamboat Room.
