Great breakfast

We had a family breakfast here over Memorial Day. It was very busy, just one waitress - she was very busy but was kind and apologized for the wait. I tried the Norwegian pancakes, they were delicious!

For the past few years, whenever any of our neighborhood friends have a birthday, it's a Margaret's night! The menu isn't overwhelming, but diverse enough for everyone. The BYOB factor makes it more affordable. They'll let you wait upstairs in a lounge for your table and give you glasses and a corkscrew for your wine! They are known for seafood,... More

If ever in Fairhaven, MA and on the waterfront a great place to eat is Margaret's local color, fine dining, and a friendly wait staff make the meal there enjoyable.

Our group of 4 went to Margarets on a Saturday night. Our server was tremendous with a great sense of humor. She tended to us like we were family. Our food was great from the calamari app to the entrees and the wonderful and plentiful desserts. Hands down, a great place to eat!

I have been taking friends here for years to their wonderful amazement! The best broiled spicy calamari appetizer though I noticed smaller portions. Wonderfully fresh seaford. Portuguese breads, great soups and leave room for deserts. Everything home made. BYOB.

Not much on atmosphere, but the wait staff and food make up for that 100 fold. This restaurant is situated in an old house back in a quaint little neighborhood. I had the haddock in a pesto sauce and my co-workers also had seafood dishes that they raved about. This is probably the best meal I have had since I... More

My lunchmate had a seafood casserole which he declared as delicious....and was very happy with it. I had a scallop stirfry of sorts which made me out -of- sorts. A stirfry is not a soup, as this practically was. The broccoli was half yellow, the scallops way overcooked, tasteless and tough and the presentation looked like a mess...very unappetizing and...

We've savored Margarets for many years, willingly traveling and encouraging friends to travel most any distance for local scallops, fish, salads, and just food you enjoy putting in your mouth. They know how to shop, cook, serve and all for a bargain price. This is making me hungry. "Honey, let's go to Margarets."

Margarets does serve the best seafood, always exceptionally fresh complimented by simple side dishes. It can get a little busy there in the summer months so be prepared for a bit of a wait, but it is well worth it.

Very good food, good service, clean place. Staff was friendly and very efficient. The person was alone and managed it very well. The place is cozy.
