I love this place. I discovered Skylarks about five years ago while on a business trip. I love that this a very old building with tons of charm.

We have eaten here many times over the years, and never were disappointed. Breakfasts are great, but I prefer their Soups, Burgers, Sandwiches, and Desserts. My wife always has a fancy Salad and Dessert. Drinks are very good as well...

I chose this restaurant as they were listed in the top ten best in Bellingham, WA. I was so disappointed when my hungry son found a long strand of hair in his shrimp salad. He couldn't finish the salad and left hungry. Quality control is lacking. They did not charge for the salad but the damage was still done. Too... More

Came here with friends for a fancy might out. The food was good. They have a good variety of food available. It is pricey but really good.

I read the reviews and stopped in today. I ordered the chuckanut blue salad. The turkey that was described on the menu was not that turkey - cheap deli pressed turkey was on it / the dressing was awful and it had too many walnuts and cranberries. I was looking forward to it too :(

Stopped by for lunch after church. We were able to be seated right away, which is nice. The lunch menu has many good choices, so it's hard to make a bad selection. The service was prompt and friendly, and the food very tasty. If you're in Fairhaven, I wouldn't pass up on eating here.

Family friendly, very good food with a vintage restaurant feeling - this is a fun restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the heart of downtown Fairhaven. With a 7 time award winning Clam chowder definitely start your meal or have a small cup with whatever you choose to order. Tip: They take reservations for dinner!
