Basic but good

As several people have mentioned, this is not a big place. a reservation might be a good idea. The food was good although they may be serving instant iced tea....not sure about that. The servers were nice and desserts are a big area of emphasis.

Coconut Shrimp appetizer was sweet-spicy-delicious. Simple setting, tucked away in a corner or Fairhaven. Driving there allowed us a view of Fairhaven's spectacular municipal and private buildings. A tour of the town and Phoenix Park is reason alone to head to Fairhaven. Margaret's is the bonus! Very reasonably priced with excellent food. Be aware this is a BYOB, which made... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and was very pleased with the recommendations for brunch. It was a bit busy in the morning, but my girlfriend and I were able to get a table quicker than expected. Our waitress had her hands full with a big party, but she apologized for the wait and once our order was in, it came... More

Went to Maragaret's on a recent Friday night. The food, service, and value were all excellent. We have dined there many times and have never been disappointed. It is the place to go for excellent, fresh, and interesting seafood dishes. They also have great selections for non seafood lovers. You can bring your own wine (or whatever you choose), which...

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
