This was a place that I had driven by many times before. My friend deserved a breakfast for helping move my boat and suggested Margaret's. Arriving we found a small place that was crowded. If you did not know your neighbor you would by the time you left. I had two eggs and bacon and my guest had the special... More

Margarets is an oasis of incredible, inexpensive dishes of fresh fish as well as other fare, most of which are accompanied by amazing sauces and all of which are served by wonderful, pleasant staff.

I've come here for breakfast before and now have been back for lunch. Had a delicious sandwich and my favorite is the oven roasted haddock with mussels, linguica and tomatoes. It's typically a $20 dish elsewhere but half the cost and double the taste at Margarets. Service is always friendly and atmosphere is cozy.

Margaret's is a local jewel. The atmosphere is casual, it is BYOB with free corkage, and the food is consistently fresh, and excellent. Seafood is the specialty, with many creative preparations. We go often for both lunch and dinner. And, the pistachio cake is worth the calories!

Went in during the week for breakfast. Front room was pretty full, so sat in back room which is comfortable. Had bacon, eggs with one blueberry pancake. The bacon was cooked just like I like it, the home fries were very good with a nice seasoning on them. The blueberry pancake was great. Not to big or small, with lots... More

We've eaten lunch here twice, and have been very impressed with the quality of the food, the value, and the fantastic service. Both times I ordered seafood dishes--they were fresh and delicious. Both times there was one waitress serving 20-30 people, and she was phenomenal--pleasant and efficient. I've read a few negative reviews, but really can't relate to them. This... More

I've been eating at Margaret's for years and it is the restaurant my wife and I dine at the most. The setting is quaint and food is consistently good. I love the meatloaf, crab cakes, lobster salad sandwich and various scallop dishes. The desserts are remarkable as well and the staff is hard working and friendly. Margaret's is also a... More
