We are local to the area and consider the Inn an excellent dining and entertainment option. We love the deck overlooking the harbor on a summer evening. Food is great and hosts charming.

Found this great little place off the beaten path near Fairhaven. Lovely views from the porch. Stopped for a local IPA but stayed for a great dinner.

I've eaten at The Inn on Shipyard Park many times. The food is usually consistently good as is the service. After dining here last week on my birthday, I will probably not visit this establishment again or at least not for a very long time....More
