Our group of 20 had a lovely lunch at The Fair Haven Inn after attending a Bruce Blanchette Art Exhibit at Castleton University. The restaurant was a wonderful surprise! The exhibit was excellent and then to top it off with a great lunch made for a very pleasant day. The calamari was cooked to perfection and the Greek Salad was... More

Spent the most romantic evening over Christmas. The lighting was second to none. In fact, I knew about it from an article in the local paper. Inside, the fireplace, the lighting, the music was simply spectacular. Then came the food. I had Oso Buco, with an appetizer of cauliflower and parmesan. My lovely date had fresh mussels for appetizer and... More

We had a great meal. The ambiance was nice, the bar well stocked, the menu had a nice selection, the wine list well ranged and the desert cart was perfect. I would highly recommend especially while staying nearby at the Marble Mansion.

We went to this Restaurant on New Years Eve. Since I am a prime rib fanatic, I ordered the prime rib. The steak was very tender, tasty, good size and was priced extremely well. I will certainly go back again and highly recommend this business. (Oh, the Baileys Irish Cream cake was fantastic also).

I have had lunch here a few times. The food is top rate and the atmosphere is wonderful. Sitting by the fire enjoying a delicious lunch is very special. Great lunchtime selections. I had the scrod. They are truly the "poets of seafood".

This is one of our local favorite restaurants for lunch and dinner. I love the French onion soup and the Grecian Scrod. It is a fun and festive place and always decorated for the season. Staff is excellent and well trained.

We thought it would be better than it was. Dinner was good but not amazing and my glass of wine was a bit on the skimpy side. We both had dessert, one of which was a bit dry, but there were gluten-free options, which was great. We should have asked to move to another table as the couple next to... More

Actually ended up a bit lost in Vermont and came upon this place. It was a good choice with good service. Hamburgers were excellent. There is an ice cream place when the season is right.

We really enjoyed the Fair Haven Inn. We ate there twice for lunch. They serve warm bread and the fish stew was excellent. We also had the Grilled Rueben and the Prime Rib sandwich, both were really good. Patty at the bar provided great service both times we were there.

We were in Fair Haven for an overnight stay, and had never been there before. We asked for a restaurant recommendation, and were directed to the Fair Haven Inn. The atmosphere was pleasant, the food was excellent, the service was good on a busy evening. We were pleased with our experience.
