Dinner

Service is a step up from others. Seems seafood is there thing, which I would agree with but many other choices to choose from. They also have some nice early bird specials.

Went here to celebrate my Mom's 85th birthday. We sat near the fireplace which created a great ambience. As this was a Sunday they serve their dinner menu at lunch which was superb.

I travel all over the world in my job and have dined at the finest restaurants in Europe. For the price, the food here is some of the best I have ever had. The Greek baked lamb shank is especially awesome - reminds me of the way my mother used to make it!

The dinner menu had many choices, and ordering off the alternative shorter menu contained therein offered several entrees and was extremely reasonable cost-wise - and delivered a delicious meal. Great service as well, and a lovely venue.

This is a place the locals come to. Close to the New York state line, it draws in local people from the area. We were surprised by how busy it was on a week night. Fair Haven, VT feels like a small village and we didn't expect to find this quality of a restaurant here. Definitely stop by if you're... More

Upscale dining at a reasonable budget. Lots of seafood options, and some delicious desserts! Its nice in the winter to sit up next to the fireplace in the main dining room for a romantic atmosphere.

We took our Mother for her 84th Birthday and had a fantastic evening. Everything was perfect from our cocktails to dessert. I had the Veal Florentine and it was excellent. Other meals were Grecia Scrod, Filet Mignon, and Scallops. No complaints. They have this place beautifully decorated for the Holidays. We'll be returning soon.

Relatively speaking this restaurant is expensive for the area. If you want to save a little money, sit in the bar, which is a nice environment. There is a bar menu that is limited, but worth the cost savings. The bread that comes with every meal is spectacular. Service is good, food is good, but if you are a really... More

We had a celebration at our FH Branch of HFCU. The Fair Haven Inn catered it (awesome job). After the event we all went to the FH Inn for a fabulous dinner.

We have been going there for over 25 years without a hic cup. Warm and friendly with excellent cuisine. The setting is so nice with two working fireplaces.
