Margaret's Restaurant is a great place for breakfast or lunch. The restaurant is small and always busy as its a very popular place to eat. The food is fresh and delicious and you have to try the Norwegian crepes with Lingonberry sauce. One of my favorite breakfast items.

I love Margaret's and Elizabeth's! Being in the Real Estate profession I could think of nothing better for a closing gift for someone moving into Fairhaven than a gift certificate to Margaret's and Elizabeth's. I picked one up just prior to the closing last Friday and unknowingly must have dropped the gift card on the floor. The people took the... More

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.
