Reviewed July 10, 2021

It definitely was a bar atmosphere and we were the only ones inside the restaurant part. It took a few minutes before we got menus and a few more before the waitress took our order. We each started with a stuffed quahog, it was okay...but it had a sweetness to them I wasn't used to, then we each had fish and onion rings. My first piece of fish was cooked perfectly and flaky but the second one I was concerned that it wasn't cooked all the way through as it was a little gray instead of flaky white. The onion rings were real onions not frozen and that was a plus. Overall it was a bar atmosphere. I was not a big fan. Food was just okay.More

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.

The food was worth the wait, and the prices were excellent, so I would go there again. Just be prepared to wait a long time (we had a group of 11 and took 90 minutes to get food) and get your own drinks from the...bar. Fun atmosphere, but definitely a local bar.More

I just revisited this place for the wonderful fish & chips that I had last time I was here. I have to say it was sadly disappointing and the service really poor. We arrived on a Saturday night. There were four or five other tables...occupied. One waitress for all the tables. It took a good twenty minutes to just get menus. it took another 20 minutes for her to take our order. I ordered the fish and chips again. This time there are no rolls or no salad included like they used to have. We also ordered baked fish and a steak sub. The food took forever to come out. It took at least 35 - 40 minutes. As soon as she put the plate in front of me, I knew it was going to be disappointing and I was right. The fries stone cold. That plate must have sat for 15 minutes before our waitress brought it out. The portion of fish was very small. I sent my plate back and my family members were just about done with their meals by the time I got mine. Their meals were lukewarm too. My son said his steak sandwich wasn't that great. I hated the atmosphere. I didn't mind it the first time but this time I was aggravated by the whole meal. I won't be back and I surely won't recommend it. Service was really poor and food sub par. They need to decide are they a bar room or a restaurant. Huge disappointment.More

I've tried take out twice, as I've read good reviews of the food..however BOTH times the order was WRONG. I asked the woman on the phone to read the order back to me, as there was a lot of background bar noise & she sounded...confused..however we kept getting hung up on. I guess the phone line didn't work. Then when we picked up the food (not what we ordered ) we were told there was an added charge of $1 per meal due to "Hurricane Irene" which was still off the Carolinas at this point in time and quite sunny here (Friday evening). This to me was due to pure GREED. I will NOT give this restaurant a 3rd chance! If the food was really excellent I might overlook the poor service, but it's not-I'll stick with the Kool Kone.More
