The best scallops you'll ever have, and all the other seafood is excellent. Other people tell me the beef and chicken dishes are also superb, but I never miss the chance for great seafood. The only drawback is that they've stopped serving dinner on week nights.

Did takeout. No online menu but staff was very helpful and patient. Baked stuffed haddock and cheesy mashed potatoes were excellent. I will have to go back to dine in - local down-to-earth harbor side atmosphere.

This place is obviously loved by the locals. It's in a house in a semi-residential neighborhood. Quirky. First off, the food was good. At our table, we had haddock, lamb shank, and a pasta dish. The food wasn't spectacular, but, good and tasty for the price. The desserts were really good. They seem to specialize in unique twists on cake... More

Crepes are yummy, coffee hot and delicious. Not a huge menu but enough. Seating is tight and it's cold in there in the winter.

I've been to Margaret's several times for lunch and it has been excellent every time. There is a varied menu and the service is quick and friendly.

The food is excellent and creatively prepared. Fresh ingredients, friendly waitstaff, although interior is more dated than charming.

This was a place that I had driven by many times before. My friend deserved a breakfast for helping move my boat and suggested Margaret's. Arriving we found a small place that was crowded. If you did not know your neighbor you would by the time you left. I had two eggs and bacon and my guest had the special... More
