My husband and I had lunch here at Margaret's. The menu was extensive and the food was delicious. The prices were very reasonable. We would definitely go back there when we're in the area.

We have had a week here and been to Margarets a few times. Great staff and great food. The omelettes for breakfast are delicious and the scallop salad for lunch are my picks. Def make sure you go here the next time you are in town. Generous servings too

We enjoyed a pleasant & delicious lunch in the heart of the historic area of Fairhaven, not far from the water. The ambiance is casual & the servers very pleasant.

My friend and I ate here on Saturday for lunch. We ordered their green salad with grilled pear. I opted for grilled shrimp to be added to mine($1.00 each). The shrimp were large and tasty. The salads were fresh and tasted delicious. I would definitely return again when in the area and maybe go for dinner.

A great place to eat dinner. Casual, come as you are atmosphere. Fresh seafood prepared in imaginative ways to inspire you and wake up your taste buds. Be sure to check the specials out. Fresh, local produce is also featured on the menu. Leave room for dessert...Pistachio cake. Yum. You're welcome!

absolutely enjoyed it. small and simple but cozy restaurant in Fairhaven. the prices are fair and the food is simply delicious. we only learned upon arrival that it is BYOB, but the food made up for the lack of wine. still dreaming about the Black Velvet Cake
