I go here for the outdoor patio. It's not too loud and a nice breeze. I got the lobster roll here and it was very good! The specialty drinks are ok. I wonder if the bartender was new because he wasn't making them as described on the menu. Service is good. Casual environment. I would... read more

Went all over Martha's Vineyard and Boston to find that Fathom would take the cake. Great service and amazing food. GET THE CHOWDA.

Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Large servings and reasonably priced. Our server did a great job with our large group of rowdy fishermen. We will be back.

Went here after two flights from Manchester via London Heathrow to Boston and then a one hour car journey , so after a hospital visit to a. Family member it was so good to get a typical local meal. I had New England clam chowder followed by the fried Scallops jacket potato coleslaw and it was all delicious! Others had... More

A group of friends ate there on the recommendation of a employee of Enterprise. There couldn't be any fresher seafood. I had an amazing Lobster Roll. Everyone in my group loved the food. The service was wonderful. And we arrived in plenty of time to see the bridge move. I wish it had been warmer so we could have eaten... More

I just wrote a review and it seems to have gone poof so I will make this short. The prime rib was excellent, and apparently the food in general is very good (5 of us in the party). The clam chowder was also very good. The service was good The atmosphere was great I will definitely go back.

I have only been there twice. The food and service is good but never had an opportunity to sit on their porch overlooking the harbor. Both times we ate indoors. We are both mature diners and prefer a place that is not blaring with loud sounds or music. If you like that atmosphere you will love it.

Ate on the deck on a beautiful summer day. The baked scallops were excellent as were the roasted potatoes and veggies. Reasonable prices and fast service.

Not sure why this is not rated higher on Fairhaven restaurants it is the best in my opinion. My family and I eat here regularly and never have a bad meal. The prices and portion sizes are awesome and the seafood is fresh and prepared well. My favorites include the Tuna app or meal and the swordfish, my husband loves... More

This is one of only a few restaurants in greater NB with any water view. The view is of the working waterfront and the NB Fairhaven Bridge. The outdoor patio with canopy and roll down sides if needed is fun in summer. The indoor part of the restaurant is mostly a large bar and about 6 or 7 booths and... More
