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

The Fairhope Inn is a really nice place for dinner. Nice entree selections and desserts. The apple crisp dessert was excellent. I recommend the Fairhope Inn when in town.

We ate there for our anniversary and returned for Sunday Brunch. The atmosphere is a comfortable and tastefully decorated older home with a semi-quiet atmosphere for dinner. It was a but more lively for brunch. The best aspect was the service. Everyone was effortlessly spot on. We really felt welcome and cared for. The food is very good. I will... More

This restaurant was one of several recommended by shop owners in Fairhope. It is located in the Fairhope Inn; very charming. The staff and servers were welcoming and most hospitable. There are 2 main rooms for public dining. One is in the same room as the bar and one is on the enclosed porch with lots of windows. We liked... More
