Service was great. I had chicken and it was very dry, but they were very accommodating and offered a delicious Au jus to dip. The waiter was kinda snarky, but in a playful way. Wish we could have stayed for Live Jazz.

Skylarks has a varied menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We LOVE their breakfasts. Great variety, ample portions, good service and comfortable dining environment. Two different seating areas to choose from...street front or off-street patio front. Convenient location in Fairhaven historical district.

We stopped in for lunch while visiting on a Saturday. There were 6 of us including 2 kids and it seemed to be a bit of an imposition. There was confusion by the staff on where we should sit and our waitress seemed very put off by us. We all ordered sandwiches and it took almost an hour for our... More

Traveling through to Canada and stopped here for lunch. Two out of three dishes very good one mediocre. The salmon sandwich was excellent a fillet rather than a ground patty, butternut squash casserole super tasty a light crust. Chicken sandwich not so good honestly. More like blah. Cole slaw not great but not bad either.

OMG!!!! The Corned-Beef and Cabbage is to die for. Melt in your mouth, perfectly seasoned, I hate to say it...but better than your mom makes good. Greatest Lit' Irish Pub in the Northwest. A must visit! Service is great, they have local artist play music, just all around a great place to spend time with fiends and or family.

Always good and quaint. Wholesome food with wonderful waitstaff. We have been coming here since it was first started and nice to have an "old friend" when you come back to visit. Nice wine list.

I have been here before for breakfast but this time I had lunch. They do a real busy breakfast almost like an upscale diner then offer lunch sandwiches etc and then Skylarks turns into a wine and whiskey bar in the evening for dinner. The original structure is from the late 1880's and has burned down at least once. Refurbished... More

Skylarks is my favorite Fairhaven restaurant! Sunday brunch in the sunroom is especially nice. Be sure to ask about the ghosts that move the mirrors and pictures after everyone goes home.

Had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. My wife had the grilled chicken salad with avacados which she liked. I had the beef dip sandwich with clam chowder. The sandwich had a good amount of beef. The chowder was good once I added salt & pepper. The service was a little slow but they were busy. The waitress was very... More
