halfway between Hyannis and Providence?

Looking for a decent place to meet for dinner that is halfway between Hyannis and Providence. I ate at a clam shack type place a few years ago in the New Bedford/Fall River area that was recommended by the Providence Journal but I can't remember the name. I do remember it had a decent lobster roll.

Any suggestions?

  1. Margaret's in Fair Haven. A BYOB which is very unusual on the South Coast. Great food but they don't take reservations.Go early.

    1. Aunteejoy, the years do fly by don't they? Here's that PJ review of Margaret's dated 03/08/01 & preserved on the internet;
      Seriously, AGM's advice is spot-on. Go early, BYOB &, for heavens sakes, let's keep this little jewel amongst the three of us, okay?



      Margarets Restaurant
      16 Main St, Fairhaven, MA 02719

        Thanks for the research, but I don't think this is the place. However, my sister seems to remember that we were in Fairhaven.

        It's possible it was a place called Gene's???

          Jeez aunteejoy,
          Why didn't you just say so?
          Of course Gene's Famous Seafood's in Fairhaven!

          Harp, aka Gene, as well
          BTW, I would STILL give Margaret's a try.

      2. It does'nt have a lot of seafood, but another option in that area is uglyAmerican in Fall River. It's a burger joint you might want to try.
