Friendly and fancy

Enjoyed two meals here and would suggest this restaurant and Fairhaven are well worth the trip. Filet medallions were perfectly cooked, squash was tender, and service warm and professional. The calamari were a little dry...the only reason I marked it down.

We had our anniversary dinner here and from the first interaction making a reservation to the last bite of cheesecake, Dirty Dan Harris' exceeded expectations. Asking for a nice table when making the reservation actually resulted in said nice table and the owner remembering how many years this anniversary is. We started with an appetizer of scallops which are some... More

I have to start by saying the staff were very pleasant and service was excellent, but that is all this place has going for it. You go out for the food, Dirty Dan's does not deliver. They ran out of the wine my husband was having and the alternative was not what they said it was. His steak was underdone,... More

I would really like to rate this place twice - once for the prime rib and once for the lobster mac and cheese. The clam chowder was very good and a large serving. My mother had the clam chowder, and had ordered a "side" of the mac and cheese. When it came, it was the size of Texas. Unfortunately, the... More

My best friend and I had dinner here the evening we arrived in Fairhaven Village. It is very pretty and historical looking inside with beautiful dark wood everywhere. We had DELICIOUS lavender martinis!! I soooooo had a taste for ribs so ordered them but they were way too spicy for my liking. But those of you who do like your... More

Stopped in at opening. Nice atmosphere (1880s feel). Nice window table. Very good server: attentive and gave us time to decide on our meal. Was nice enough to split salad for us. But the main course meals simply lacked flavor. "Wild" salmon was not pink, hardly had any taste with average lemon sauce. Baked potato was just a baked potato.... More

This is a traditional style restaurant but it had something for everyone. Don't miss the garlic bread....very cheesy and garlicky!

If you order the prime rib I don't think you will be disappointed. Cooked to perfection and great flavor. I appreciated the choice of sizes. The six ounce was perfect for me. The 12 oz. perfect for my husband. The salad nice and crispy. The only thing that did not live up to my expectations was the stuffed mushrooms. Just... More

I had high expectations for this restaurant. The reviews were glowing, the website appealed to me and Trip Advisor ranked it high for the area. Unfortunately, the experience didn't like up to expectations. The service was impeccable, however, the food was average. We ordered the Gorgonzola Bread Sticks and Crab Cakes for an appetizer. The bread sticks were good but... More
