Great staff and attitude earns top marks, as does beautiful venue, refurbished historical building in the Fair haven district. Food average, at best, a couple of steps down from our last visit. Inedible stale foccacia on sandwich.... staff whisked it away after inquiring how our meals were! Pasta a little better, though couldn't find the shrimp / prawn component in... More

The band plays at the street entrance, around back there is a door to the dining room. Pasta, burgers entrees and salads. I had grilled salmon with Dijon, it was very good, not exceptional. My partner had linguini with clams that she liked a lot. They had a small, but good craft beer list on tap.

While strolling around Fairhaven with international guests we made the right choice and had lunch at Skylarks. Given the classic atmosphere of the Fairhaven area the "old west" décor of the restaurant really set the mood. We each enjoyed our sandwiches (burger, salmon, & classic fish sandwich) along with the very tasty desserts. Lunch for 4 came to about $90... More

My wife and I hadn't visited Skylarks since 2000🎩🍾. Geez that makes me feel old. Oh well, we stopped in about 10pm and got a great little table by the band. Had the best chai-tea latte ever!! Great little place.

Had lunch here mid July. Seated immediately at nice window table facing tree lined street of quaint Fairhaven. Server was very pleasant and accommodating. Water brought right out and a latte we ordered without flavor was taken back at her suggestion and flavor added. Very nice. We followed server's recommendations: soup (tomato and kale), sandwich (Italian Combo), calm chowder (lots... More

We have eaten here before and enjoyed the experience. The best price for wine is a 1/2 carafe of wine ($12). One glass is $6 so you actually get more than 2 glasses, almost three. The avocado chicken sandwich was very good. The only comment was that the chicken was tough. The cook forgot to pound it before hand.

We stopped to have desert and drinks. We had bread pudding with rum sauce and you could definitely taste the rum :o)

Really tasty homemade breakfast and lunch items. Even the grilled cheese is good - not dried out and tasteless like others make. Reasonably priced, very good service as well.

We eat here on a semi-regular basis, so can judge the consistency over time. Most times the food is excellent, but at others it is not as interesting or innovative. Service is also good, but there are times that one must wait, even if it is not crowded. Ambience is always great.

Want a great breakfast in Fairhaven, this is the place. Set in an old building, it's very cosy. Only had breakfast here but would like to try lunch or dinner next trip.
