Met friends here for a relaxing evening and delicious meal. We had reservations and were immediately seated and drink orders taken. The server was informative, but allowed us time to catch up. Appetizers of tomato bisque and caesar salad were ordered and my wife commented that caesar salad was the best she ever enjoyed. Main courses of Salmon and red... More

This review is about lodging, and not about the restaurant, even though I will mention the breakfasts that were included with our stay. We spent three nights in the Carriage House at the Fairhope Inn this past weekend. Our kids had given us a gift certificate, so, actually, they chose the Inn for us, and I chose the Carriage House...

We have been dining here a couple of times a year for about 15 years during our visits to Fairhope which we love. However, our last meal there was a bit disappointing....food not bad, but also not up to the quality that we are used to at the Fairhope Inn. Servings smaller than normal for the same price, our table... More

Really enjoyed our lunch at this quaint cafe. Beautiful glassed-in patio with nice views of the outdoor patio and the streets of Fairhope. Good lobster bisque and entrees. Def worth a trip here as it is cozy, quaint and the food is fabulous.

My second visit to the Fairhope Inn & Restaurant this year...and it was absolutely as wonderful as the first! Breakfasts were wonderful, and staying in the ADORABLE cottage outside of the Inn, but part of the Inn, was unmistakably the best place to stay in Fairhope! We stepped out our doors right into the downtown area. The cottage was clean,... More

Love the Fairhope Inn for all meals (lunch, dinner, brunch), but especially enjoy Sunday brunch. The banana nut French toast is scrumptious, all the calories notwithstanding. #2 of the top 3 in Fairhope.

Crisp tablecloths on a cool, summer "porch" with beautifully presented crab cakes and soup. The crab/bread ratio seemed heavier on the bread content, but the flavor and presentation were lovely.

We have dined a Fairhope Inn & Restaurant on three occasions and have always been impressed with the delicious food and excellent service. Our waiter, Jefferey, was very knowledgeable about pairing wines with entrees and can be trusted for his culinary recommendations for what to get if you're not sure. They have a varied menu of both simple and complex... More

We had brunch at this cozy restaurant in the historic district. Decor is cute, staff very friendly the food however is mediocre. I had a blue crab cake which had more fillers than crab, the muffin was soggy and the egg barely warm. Too bad as my prior visit was more satisfactory

We made reservations at the Fairhope Inn based on a recommendation. We were visiting for a celebration for a very dear friend. We checked in around 3 PM on August 25, 2016. From the time we entered our room we were disappointed. There was nothing in our room telling us about the Inn and its policies. We had been told... More
