Wednesday’s specials! Clam boils & Lobstah rolls delicious!!! The lobster roll was a New England grilled hotdog roll filled with lots of nice chunks of lobster meat. It had the right amount of spice & mayo with tasty crispy fries & cole slaw. The clam...boil, I was told was also good with lots of clams, a nice piece of linguisa, potatoes, etc. It came with melted butter & warm broth. Curb side pickup was easy. We’ll be back....More

If you want to experience a fun, local townie dive bar - this is your place! They have stuff going on all week: food specials, karaoke, trivia, live music, pool, even things like paint nights. Their food and drinks are very reasonably priced. Drinks and...bar service are always good, food quality and service can be inconsistent. But I still keep going back! It's a fun place to go when you're a somewhat regular, I just wish the food was better.More

My wife and I live in the area and love trying new local places to eat and have a drink. The lounge has several tables that surround the bar. Definitely a local spot but a friendly atmosphere. We absolutely fell in love with Tara “T”....She has a great welcoming and friendly personality. We were amazed at how hard she works and still maintains a smile as well as a few seconds to chat with each customer. We never waited more that a moment for another drink and our food came out just as fast. I had the lobster roll with onion rings, my wife had a hamburger with fries. We split some buffalo tenders. The lobster roll was heaping with large pieces of lobster. Onion rings and tenders were great as well. My wife loved her hamburger it was cooked just right. All in all the food was great as well as the service. We will definitely return.More

We went to see some family members & friends at lunch time. The server ended up being the bartendar. There was approx. 20 people and we all ordered lunch. The food was good but somehow it took forever for it to be served. There needs...to be a big improvement with the cook staff and orders placed first came out last, so something happend in the kitchen for sure. The food was all hot & I heard lots of compliments. Some had a burger not cook well enough anda few little things like that. I'm sure the service in this area will improve over time. We had an arrange of ages in our group from 4yrs old to 90+. Having the pool table to use was great & the back room.More

If you're in Fairhaven, stopping in at the Bayside is a MUST! Besides the food being great, (especially their Fish n' Chips or Steak n cheese wraps!) every bartender is super nice with great attitudes. As a lifelong Fairhaven resident, the Bayside Lounge has been...a staple in the community since before I was born. I love going in and talking with the locals who are happy to see it still thriving (they have the best stories!). They have pool tables, karaoke, country line dancing, and live entertainment on Saturdays. If you're in the area, you should definitely stop in at the Bayside for drink.More

I couldn't ask for more. Food is amazing. You want seafood? The Bayside has the freshest I've tasted. I had a burger last week, cooked perfectly. Their menu has everything you could ask for. Seafood, burgers, chicken parm. There is entertainment pretty much daily. Bands,...Sunday night country night, Karaoke, Trivia. I'm sure I missed some. This place is your local pub with a twist.More

This is a small cramped bar room in the front. Bar service was OK but ran out of martini glasses. In the back room is tables for restaurant and food. Small kids running around made it less than desirable.

Well to start off its very noisy and loud. Went there this evening forgot to wear ear plugs, service is terrible never came back to see how the meal was, I consider Unsanitary, the so call waitress that took hour order was also taking out...garbage handling beer case. Order chowder was mostly boiled potatoes cut in quarter very little clams, (3.50) for a cup, had Fish & Chips the fries were cooked in old oil and cold and very dry. Order two draft beer (3.00) per glass. It was so loud you couldn't hear your self think, we definitely wont be back, the music was over powering has well has the patrons around the bar, I can see why we the only ones eating the so call dining area. I'd advise anyone unless you like a hang out and yell when you talk to be heard I wouldn't go there not a place to take a familyMore

Great food, especially their seafood, and service is served with a smile. Atmosphere is friendly and fun. Pool tables to keep us entertained, and family friendly as well.
