Had breakfast there this morning as we wanted a break from Cracker Barrel. Nice quaint, older atmosphere. Food was delicious. Prices were reasonable. Service was good. The only thing that Cracker Barrel is slightly better with was the table arrangement and sound. I felt as if conversations travelled fairly well in Fava's and less so with Cracker Barrel. Probably not... More

Food has always been good. Sad to get news that Jessica is leaving. She always knew what we wanted & always brought us to go drinks without asking. Friday nights there will not be the same. Interesting to see if new ppl can live up to the best service I've had.

Restaurant has been there for over one hundred years. It has been handed down through family's and serves breakfast lunch and dinner. You can always get a hot meal here any time you are in town. Always loved stopping in for a meal or just to chat👍🏻

Beats Cracker Barrel hands down. Try their biscuits and gravy. Just like my mom used to make! Friendly staff, down home feel. Vintage decor.

The atmosphere is very friendly. The people are very personable. This is a hometown restaurant that has been serving Georgetown for over 50 years. Not a chain, but a restaurant that caters to homegrown Georgetown. Everyone is welcome and the food is outstanding!

Fava's is a go-to for this local girl. The atmosphere is quirky and fun--lots to look at while you're waiting for your food. There's definitely a local feel as servers know many of the clientele by name. Try the catfish--it's my fave. And of course, don't leave without a hand-scooped milkshake.

Best cheeseburger & pattymelt we've had in a long time! French fries were good (seemed to be fresh cut potatoes). Would visit again when in area.

This wonderful historic eatery is a must stop when in Georgetown. The food is down home delicious and the nostalgic diner atmosphere dating back to 1910 makes the dining experience truly meaningful and fun. Add to all this all of this a truly customer focused and pleasant team, and you can see why I will continue to come back!!!

We were driving downtown Historic Georgetown, the architecture of the old homes is fantastic and decided to eat at a local family restaurant. So I hit the Foursquare option on our Garmin and upped popped Favas, which was literally across the street. I choose the Rachel, roast turkey and cheese on Texas toast, with fries. Yum! + at $7.99 good... More
