This may be contrarian, but 2x we went for breakfast, the 2nd time with a friend - both times were just okay. I probably won't go again, but I won't dissuade you from trying. The environment is terrific, the coffee good, but the breakfast just average - not as good as what I can make at home. 3 Eggs over... More

Better Than Ever!!! Always a favorite in Southeastern Mssachusetts. Incredible seafood offerings, great lunches and breakfasts. We tried this on a Saturday evening, good thing it was 5PM, within a half hour of our arrival the waiting time was 30 minutes or more. This is a BYOB restaurant, and we forgot our bottle at home so we started with a... More

Good food but bring your wallet. $32.00 for breakfast for two. Crowded and expensive. Had the pancakes w bacon. Nothing special but $16.00

Went here with friends for lunch on a Saturday in February. It was not too crowded. The service was great and the food was really terrific - far exceeded my expectations for a small local place! I'd had lunch just a few days before at a pricey seaside restaurant and the lunch here (a special) put their food to shame!... More

First off this is a small restaurant. We usually sit in the back room. We had been in Texas for 2 1/2 months and wanted some good seafood. I have had the best scallops in my life at this restaurant. The bread they serve you before your meal is also great, kind of an onion bread with sweetened butter. I... More

Very crowded front room..waitstaff seemed harried at times and it seemed as if you weren't a regular, the service attention was lacking. My wife and I arrived there one Sunday just before 2 other couples, they were waited on first while our waitress seemed to disappear, (not the way our past visits have gone). We waited an additional 10+ minutes... More

The food was really yummy, especially their custard French toast. All tables, no booths and the front area the tables are close. They do a have a breakfast counter if you are by yourself. No children's menu.

It's unfortunate that this restaurant is so poorly managed. The food is good-when you can get some. Tried to have lunch today. Refused to seat anyone because they did t have any clean plates. I actually would have waited til they had some but after waiting outside in the cold for nearly an hour - when there were many empty... More

This review is based solely on customer service because it was so bad we were not willing to wait the 30 minutes to be seated for breakfast. When we walked into this very tiny cramped place, a young person greeted us and it was obvious she forgot to put her "friendly" on when she got ready for work. We walked... More

Margaret's Restaurant is a great place for breakfast or lunch. The restaurant is small and always busy as its a very popular place to eat. The food is fresh and delicious and you have to try the Norwegian crepes with Lingonberry sauce. One of my favorite breakfast items. They serve breakfast until 11am, so if that's what you're looking for,... More
