If you want fried seafood in Fairhaven, this is a must stop!

I've eaten here many times and love to go there because it's the kind of place where you can stop on the way back from the beach and not have to worry about what you're wearing. They have a room full of picnic tables and a couple of small tables for couples along the windows. Great place to bring... read more

The broiled fish was great - The fish & chips was fresh and tasty. The clam chowder was lacking substance (only a minimum amount of clams) as well as the clam cakes. Clean surroundings and pleasant staff.

Gene's has great clam plates and scallop plates. I'm fussy over my fried food as I don't eat it often because it usually bothers my stomach. Gene's fried clams and scallops never bothers me. My husband and I stop here several times a season during the summer months and we have always had a good meal here. I have also... More

This is one of those places where everyone feels welcome. Picnic tables and quaint nautical themed wall decor welcome you along with the friendly staff and wonderful smell of fish and chips as you wait for your own bag of clam cakes. You will be a welcomed guest at any back yard party if you arrive with enough to share.

You go to Gene's for the food and not the ambiance. I eat there regularly and always eat well. The cooks are all proud of their work. It is the place to go for deep fried shellfish of any sort or fish & chips. All is absolutely fresh and pricing is fair.

I've gone to Gene's many times over the years and it is a simple place with no frills fried food dining. Their fried clams just may be the best in New England. ..and I've tried numerous places in Maine..on North Shore and on Cape Cod..I drive from Dennis on the Cape 40 minutes to get them. The fish n chips... More

Been going to Gene's for a number of years and have always enjoyed it. Considering it is out of season the clams were very good. For 2 of us we order the seafood platter and an extra order of fish. There are more than enough fries for 2 on the seafood platter. The one thing I will agree with is... More

The food is good but it seems that everything taste the same, no mater if it is fish or clams or shrimp. The food is fresh but pre cooked ahead of time(fried fish).
