Lively bar, good drinks and excellent food. Try the salmon and lobster cake! Calamari is cooked just right! Healthy choice veggie burger is homemade and delicious.

The food at Fay's is very good. I had the special seafood dish and found it excellent. My wife's Salmon was very good. Rice was pretty good. Asparagus and Broccolini were good. Nice wine list. Still had Sam Adams Summer. Delicious Grapenut Pudding. All in All, A for dinner!

Brunch food items included Roast Duck with orange marmalade, excellent! Chef Victor is creative, outgoing and very involved in local projects. Have already mark our calendar for the last Sunday of every month for this Brunch, which is reasonable priced.

We had a party of 8. Celebrating a birthday. Everyone loved their food and the prices were reasonable. We had 3 kids with us and our waitress was great with them and didn't make us feel uncomfortable or unwelcome even when they got rambunctious (as 3 boys ages 4, 9 and 11 will do). They brought out a brownie sundae for the birthday person and sang to her.

Always dependably good food! Their chowder, English batter fish/chips, and pizza are the very best around.
We have been steady customers since the mid 1950s. It is my husband' s favorite restaurant

The food and service was superb. The ambiance is okay, nothing great, but I don't think that's what they are shooting for. There's no ocean or harbor view but the food and service make up for that.

I found this place on OT about 6 weeks ago and have been there twice now. Super friendly, family oriented and a lively bar scene for adults with really good live music on weekends.

Would recommend for takeout, casual dinner, more adventurous dinner, with kids and without.

I think it's my new favorite OT place in this area of MA and would recommend to anyone.

I had read good reviews on OT but was completely unfamiliar with the restaurant. What a find! Off street parking, takes reservations, has a bar area and a private room and the food was great.

Seriously, really good traditional fare with some unexpected highlights at a great price. There were 5 of us - 1 appetizer (nachos, plenty of food for all of us to pick at), 3 beers/cocktails, 2 sodas, 4 entrees and a burger and the total was $120. Hard to beat considering how good the food was (outstanding burger, great fries, amazing dipping sauce for the bread at the beginning of the meal, great portions for baked stuffed shrimp, etc., etc.).

Overall, really lively place and clearly family friendly. Prices were really good, entrees were all really good sized portions and very tasty, and the menu has something for everyone from the traditionalist (baked stuffed shrimp) to the more adventurous (BBQ glazed salmon).

Will definitely be back!

It was quite busy the night my boyfriend and I went. It's a little crowded and there were large families next to us with their kids, but overall my experience was great and I'd go back again. The waitress was super friendly and I felt welcomed as soon as I walked through the door.

Our waitress goofed several times. I think she was just young and inexperienced. She was pleasant and apologetic, but really distracted from the experience

My husband and I have been to Fay's many time but this was my first time for a free birthday meal! It was fabulous! I couldn't believe I could have ANYTHING on the menu and a free dessert too, my choice! The server was welcoming and attentive, food fabulous and quiet adult atmosphere (children well behaved) we had a very enjoyable evening! We will be back!

Love your nachos too!

We are at this restaurant every Friday night. From the servers to the bartender to the kitchen, all are top notch. It's a great place to be a regular because it's like Cheers, because everyone knows your name. Couldn't be any friendlier.

Consistently delicious food with lots of choices and the whole spectrum of health/comfort food types. Friendly atmosphere. Bar a nice option too, especially if dining alone.

I love that I was able to reserve a table with OpenTable.com and we were seated as soon as we arrived. The waitress recommended an excellent Pinot Noir which I enjoyed while my dining partner enjoyed a very tasty White Wine Sangria. The hot bread was delivered right away and our order server recommended the meatsauce for my Lasagna which was a great call. Everything we ate that night was really well prepared and my dining partner's linguini dish (I don't remember it was shrimp or lobster) was excellent. After dining we retired to the bar area to enjoy the musical stylings of Chris Richards and Danny Schwartz. It was a great evening altogether.

Traveling far fr home is difficult at times. My husband and I booked Fay's (same day booking). We were in an area on the east coast very umfiloar to us. Upon arriving, the restaurant was CLOSED. We had traveled to the restaurant on a VERY rainy night and had to go back to hotel which tolok 40 mom round trip. We shouldn't have been able to book a closed restaurant in my opinion.

Always good, no matter what we order, from pizza to a full meal. Service is polished and we always ask for Jenn on Friday nights for extra special attention. Else, we sit at the bar and chat with Artie.
