“Same Kitchen as Elizabeth's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is the even less formal side of Elizabeth's. We went there for lunch, and the food was the same quality as Elizabeth's, but without a liquor license.

Ate here twice on vacation and loved it both times. The food is quality and the service is terrific. Cannot wait to go back next year. The locals know a charm...

“Clarification”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I am a long time resident of Fairhaven and know the owner very well. I see some mis-statements here and I want to clarify. Margaret's and Elisabeth's are not owned by "sisters" They are sister restaurants. Both restaurants and the Ice Cream shop in between are owned by ONE man. Margaret is the name of the former owner's mother (or grandmother) And when the new owner bought it, he kept the name. He then named Elisabeths after his daughter, and the Ice cream shop in between he named Brady after his son.

Always a pleasure to visit either restaurant. The menus are similar. Elisabeth offers alcohol but Margaret's does not possess a liquor license, so BYOB. There was a period where portion sizes got a bit skimpy, but it never stopped me from going back and it seems to be getting back to normal. I have never had any problems with service, most of the staff has been there for years and years.
