Very crowded front room..waitstaff seemed harried at times and it seemed as if you weren't a regular, the service attention was lacking. My wife and I arrived there one Sunday just before 2 other couples, they were waited on first while our waitress seemed to disappear, (not the way our past visits have gone). We waited an additional 10+ minutes... More

The food was really yummy, especially their custard French toast. All tables, no booths and the front area the tables are close. They do a have a breakfast counter if you are by yourself. No children's menu.

It's unfortunate that this restaurant is so poorly managed. The food is good-when you can get some. Tried to have lunch today. Refused to seat anyone because they did t have any clean plates. I actually would have waited til they had some but after waiting outside in the cold for nearly an hour - when there were many empty... More

This review is based solely on customer service because it was so bad we were not willing to wait the 30 minutes to be seated for breakfast. When we walked into this very tiny cramped place, a young person greeted us and it was obvious she forgot to put her "friendly" on when she got ready for work. We walked... More

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. They serve breakfast until 11am, so if that's what you're looking for,... More

Don't go to this place. The waitress added $7.00 to her tip on my card. My wife and I went to breakfast with friends. We split the check, my friends paid cash and I used my card. We left her a generous cash tip. Although my portion did not include any of the tip. $30.00 should have been on the... More

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

We All had wonderful entrees. Our server was Tricia and she also made the wonderful desserts. We wanted to take her home with us. The food ,... More
