Lots of seafood dishes and the huge fireplace is amazing. Good dessert selection as well. The staff has always been accommodating and the owner usually does the rounds to make sure your experience was a pleasant one. I had the porterhouse staek cooked perfectly and my wife had a chicken dish she thoroughly enjoyed. We will go back!

Only had one meal here so unwilling to generalize. Did dine early and there is an early bird menu that seems to be popular with locals. I chose from that menu and had a well-prepared small filet mignon that was enjoyable. Partner chose oysters on half shell and crab cakes. The steak came with a good Greek salad. What could... More

Excellent place to eat. Very nice and upscale. Service was spot on and the food was delicious including the deserts. I went there while staying in Granville, NY for business and a friend on mine lives in Vermont took me there and i am glad. We have a very enjoyable evening there. the atmosphere is very elegant.

We live nearby and I always choose this place to dine for special occasions or just want a great meal and excellent service. It has a Greek theme with a real classy atmosphere. I usually have a different fish dish each time we go because they are experts in preparing it. My wife usually has the the lamb or duck... More

We used to ice in the area and Fair Haven Inn was one of our favorite restaurants. We were back for a party, and went there for dinner. It was even better than we remembered. The friendliness of everyone, from the owner to server, made dinner a really nice experience. We each had fish (halibut and swordfish), their specialty -... More

Service is a step up from others. Seems seafood is there thing, which I would agree with but many other choices to choose from. They also have some nice early bird specials.

Went here to celebrate my Mom's 85th birthday. We sat near the fireplace which created a great ambience. As this was a Sunday they serve their dinner menu at lunch which was superb.

I travel all over the world in my job and have dined at the finest restaurants in Europe. For the price, the food here is some of the best I have ever had. The Greek baked lamb shank is especially awesome - reminds me of the way my mother used to make it!

The dinner menu had many choices, and ordering off the alternative shorter menu contained therein offered several entrees and was extremely reasonable cost-wise - and delivered a delicious meal. Great service as well, and a lovely venue.

This is a place the locals come to. Close to the New York state line, it draws in local people from the area. We were surprised by how busy it was on a week night. Fair Haven, VT feels like a small village and we didn't expect to find this quality of a restaurant here. Definitely stop by if you're... More
