The food was excellent: sweet, fresh, succulent seafood perfectly prepared. Many scallop entrees on the menu -- a treat for those us who who love this bivalve and are tired of only seeing seared diver scallops, It's a BYOB restaurant -- something that adds to its value. The service was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. The space, itself, has a lot... More

A group of former high-school classmates, now living in different parts of Massachusetts and the country, get together once or twice a year to reminisce and catch up. Sometimes if we all can't make the larger reunion in the summer we have mini get-togethers when those afar return to visit southeastern MA. Margaret's has often been a place to gather... More

Margarets is a very pretty drive from New Bedford to Fairview where it is located on a lovely side street. It appears to be a home turned restaurant. The whole area looks historic and quaint. The service staff was excellent and the food, I ordered lobster ravioli was excellent too. The asperagus was placed kind of lackluster in the sauce... More

I took the advise of another Trip Advisor reviewer. Thank you. The food was absolutely wonderful. Everyone around me also seemed to have the same opinion and I had the feeling they were all regulars.We had a lovely young girl serving us and her enthusiasm and attentiveness was refreshing. The seared shrimp were terrific. The only complaint I have is... More

Four of us visited this restaurant on a Saturday night - BYOB makes this venue a great deal. If you had to purchase wine to accompany the meal, then the review would probably be 3 stars "good" - portions are adequate, presentation and temperature were satisfactory - in my opinion, the flavor was just adequate - start with really good...

I miss living next to this restaurant. The freshest seafood is always served by the friendly waitstaff. There is something on the menue to suit everyone's tastes. The varieties offered make your mouth water. My staple is always on hand but the specials always lure me away. The atmosphere is calm, inviting, and relaxing. You are never rushed and all... More

Boat problems got us to and had us stay for two weeks in Fairhaven. 10 minutes walking from the shipyard we discovered Margaret's where we went in for lunch. Delicious fresh seafood, unexpected taste combinations, nicely presented on the plate, friendly service, moderately priced. We obviously weren't the only ones to have discovered this restaurant: with all tables occupied, people... More
