Installing her tavern in the spot Jane Vobe abandoned for the King's Arms was a good move for tiny, rotund Christiana Campbell—hers became George Washington's favorite place. The tagline on the "Bill of Fayre" is "Giving Satisfaction to TRAVELERS and TOWNSPEOPLE with a Taste for SEAFOOD," which means the way to choose between this and the King's Arms is by what you feel like eating: You get a similar experience at either. The $35 "Waterman's Supp'r" includes clam stew, herb-crusted codfish, and ice cream. Oyster dishes are the only ones to be avoided. As at Mrs. Vobe's, a stack of sides comes free; here it's cabbage slaw, spoon bread, biscuits, and sweet-potato muffins.

Open daily 5 to 9 pm.
