Good local spot that the locals love. Food and atmosphere are terrific. Service is the best! Always pleasant, polite and prompt. Tastiest New England Clam Chowder in the area. Tuesday is Pizza night....only $5 from plain to the works. Salads always fresh, crisp and cold.

Traditional Italian food. Can be a bit spotty but prices are reasonable and beer and wine selection is good. Specials can be more interesting than regular menu.

Always busy, Fay's has been a local staple for many years. Always good Italian and seafood themed dishes with a local twist. Parking can sometimes be a challenge and there may be a wait for a table.
