  1. Mike Zink

    Special drinks. Good food.

  2. Sally Carlson

    Stopped in for a quick lunch. Hate their parking lot, not near enough space to park

  3. Renate Huber

    Muffuletta: olive & pickled vegetable salad, mortadella, salami, Italian ham, provolone, fresh mozzarella, parmesan cheese, arugula, tomato & pickled pepper relish on a Sicilian style roll

    (Available vegetarian w/ roasted mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini &taleggio cheese)

    Large portion (able to split). I suggest not to eat it while driving…kinda messy plus you’ll want to take time to sit down and enjoy every mouth watering bite!I’ll be back for the vegetarian one!

    shiro plum soda: refreshingly delicious

    Order ahead if you’re in a rush. If not there’s outdoor and indoor seating. Wait time isn’t that bad 15-20m (Friday at noon).

    Friendly service!

  8. Abby

    Nice ambience, the tofu Bahn mi was really good, fries were amazing too. Parking is behind the building. They had a couple of vegetarian options

    Came across this little gem on a scenic drive out to deception pass. You can smell the delicious flavors before you even walk through the door. The interiors is full of houseplants, clean bright white walls and lots of sunlight streaming through the windows. The staff obviously enjoy working here. The food is fresh, flavorful and delicious. It’s a must try!

  10. Deanna Ellefson

    Absolutely delicious! Access off of Burlington Blvd. and Hwy 20 is a little tricky, but it’s well worth the effort. A hidden gem with an interesting menu that satisfies a variety of tastes. The falafel and pork sandwiches were both yummy and robust portions. Bring your appetite. Excellent service, too.

  11. Richard Daly

    Great food, folks and feel!

  12. Becky Ellenberger

    Tiny little restaurant kicking out big flavors!! Excellent customer service with handcrafted seasonal food that comes in very generous portions. Wine, beer and spritz are alcoholic beverage options, also lots of wonderful nonalcoholic beverage options.

  13. Cid Blase

    Both vegan sandwiches were fantastic, Bahn mi and falafel. Didn’t love the fries, fat cut, but liked the fried jalapenos, though not the healthiest choice. Hope they add more vegan options.

  14. Nathan McCourt

    Stopped in after hiking all day, and everything was fenominal! From the sandwiches and sides to the Mac and cheese. So cute and yummy 😍

  15. Julie Belanger

    Stopped for a quick bite on our way to Coupeville. Rear wine selection. Delicious fried chicken sandwich. Jalapeno chips super good. Seasonal squash cannelloni was BOMB. And the baked goods… Don’t even get me started. Lemon square slaps.

  16. Jake P

    The food here is perfect. One of the best meals I’ve had in Skagit county. If I had to choose one restaurant in this area, the Fairhaven would receive my highest recommendation.

  17. Ian Thomas

    A masterfully curated combo of atmosphere, excellent service, high quality local ingredients, and culinary skill. Be sure to check their website for their daily/weekly specials, and try their jalapeno chips, chicken fried cauliflower, or brussel sprouts as a side with your entree, you won’t regret it. This place is near and dear to my heart for its kind staff and delicious food, but I won’t spoil the magic of experiencing a restaurant of such quality as this with wordy descriptions any longer. Go try it.

  18. Jose Aguilar

    Love everything they have here super good tasty food probably the best around Encourage everybody to come eat here it’s amazing

  19. Rich Kohr

    A little spendy…. Twenty bucks for a sandwich in a cup of coffee. And a bit loud for me. The small little cafe is pretty nice…cool place.

  20. Abigail Viers-Kemp

    An absolute delight every time! Not only is their food fresh and made from scratch but the chef also does a wonderful job adding specials based upon what is in season. I true gem for our area!

  21. Dakota Maisey

    Soooo yummy, & so fresh! Highly recommend

  22. Tom Andre

    Great service, behind the counter was a very bubbly person to take our order and laugh at our jokes. Valley gem.

  23. Paul McGackey

    Oh my freaking Gawd!!! I’m in LUUUUUVVV with this place! Amazing mix of ingredients that work PERFECTLY together! They must season the breading on everything, because it’s like nothing I’ve ever tasted… Onion rings, chicken strips, and even the breaded cod thingys… A-FREAKING-MAZING!!! The sandwich was a perfect mix of everything. You’ll never have a more flavorful delight… It will leave your mouth salivating through the entire experience! Ya gotta try this place!!!

  24. Nicole Deitz

  25. Nona Yerbusinez

  26. Victoria Hohenstein

    Stopped here for lunch on the way through town. Both my partner’s food and mine was incredible. Awesome looking menu, cute place and friendly staff also.

  27. Omid E

    First time here and the food was excellent!

  28. Christian Valoe Hannesschlaeger

    Fairhaven restaurant offers a superb experience with its great atmosphere, delicious food, and friendly, fast service. What impressed me the most was the meticulous cleanliness—from the entrance to the bathroom, every detail, including the table and restaurant area, was impeccably maintained. It’s truly a great place, and I wholeheartedly recommend trying it out!

    This place had some of the best food in Skagit County

    I have always had the best food at the Fairhaven. This day I ordered the veggie sandwich….don’t remember if it said grilled or not….and fries.
    The fries were barely crisp on the outside and mushy on the inside. The size of the fries and the mushy inside led them to be bland & tasteless, definitely NOT enough seasoning, garlic & parsley etc.
    The sandwich came wrapped nicely in parchment paper. Unwrapped it to steam rising and a wonderful aroma. That’s about all that was good about it. The vegetables were over cooked and dripping with oil. It was not ‘grilled’ over wood or charcoal, maybe just on flat kitchen griddle. The bread is usually the highlight of a sandwich there. That day the bread was soggy due to it being wrapped in parchment paper. The bread was soaked in oil.
    The tray was sat in front of me with two containers of something. Not sure if I was supposed to use it for the fries or the sandwich, but no explanation was given by server. I tasted them. One was a lemon mayo the other I have no idea what the flavor of the mayo was. No cutlery. No service check during the meal.
    The ambiance is ok. It’s very very noisy when packed. You can’t hear the music. If you wear hearing aides without ambiance noise block….this is NOT the place for you. On good weather days there is always outdoor seating. But on inclement weather days there are very few inside tables, so there’s a backup and tight quarters.
    Go give it a try. If they have the muffaletta sandwich that day try it. It’s super yummy. Hard to find a muffaletta west of the Mississippi.
    Oh parking lot is difficult, better to park in lot on opposite corner.

  31. Eric Hall

    Great folks and a very unique menu which has many healthy options.

  32. Jennifer Dwyer

    So I went here with my beastie and while the service was impeccable and the atmosphere was pleasant the chicken on the chicken sandwich was a horrible piece of meat! But the roll it came on and the breading on the chicken was sooooo good! My friend said her salad was excellent! Just unlucky 🐔 day for me I guess haha

  33. Will Wheaton

    All around great experience, atmosphere, kind servers, DELICIOUS sandwiches (Ruben and classic fried chicken…which is HUGE). I’ll be back!

  34. Mary Spurgeon

    Great food. We had the corn beef handpie, Blt . Chicken bah mi sandwich, fries and lemon bar. The quality was amazing and they put their touch on everything. Nice outdoor seating. Pets on a leash are welcomed. The staff were very sweet and the place was very clean. You gotta try the cider too. This place is worth the stop.

    Our new favorite spot for lunch on the trip north from Seattle to Vancouver.
