We've dined at this great restaurant several times but recently came in for Sunday brunch and my, what an experience. The ambiance here is as quaint and classy as anywhere on the Eastern Shore. The brunch menu is simply among the best values I've ever seen. The menu items have a "Southern flair" and are very creative. Seafood, chicken, beef,... More

It was the day before Valentines Day and we had spent the day shopping in Fairhope. The Inn closes at 2pm after lunch and does not reopen for dinner until 5pm. The prices increase considerably fir dinner. We were seated on the porch and previous reviews explain the ambiance and courtyard of the lovely old Inn. We shared a crab... More

We showed up around 8:30 and before seating us the hostess looked at her watch. Maybe I should have taken the hint, but posted closing time was 10. About the time we became the last table the music shut off. Maybe it was coincidence but I felt rushed and it was about 9:20 or so. For the price I would... More

My husband and I dined at The Fairhope Inn on Tuesday January 24th and it was truly a memorable experience. The ambiance of the older Inn is lovely and we enjoyed the glass porch. The staff was helpful with recommendations and very professional. A waiter that brings a black napkin to replace the white depending on your outfit, definitely understands... More

Met friends here for a relaxing evening and delicious meal. We had reservations and were immediately seated and drink orders taken. The server was informative, but allowed us time to catch up. Appetizers of tomato bisque and caesar salad were ordered and my wife commented that caesar salad was the best she ever enjoyed. Main courses of Salmon and red... More

This review is about lodging, and not about the restaurant, even though I will mention the breakfasts that were included with our stay. We spent three nights in the Carriage House at the Fairhope Inn this past weekend. Our kids had given us a gift certificate, so, actually, they chose the Inn for us, and I chose the Carriage House...

We have been dining here a couple of times a year for about 15 years during our visits to Fairhope which we love. However, our last meal there was a bit disappointing....food not bad, but also not up to the quality that we are used to at the Fairhope Inn. Servings smaller than normal for the same price, our table... More

Really enjoyed our lunch at this quaint cafe. Beautiful glassed-in patio with nice views of the outdoor patio and the streets of Fairhope. Good lobster bisque and entrees. Def worth a trip here as it is cozy, quaint and the food is fabulous.
