Stayed over in Georgetown on the road trip back home (see other reviews for hotel info). We like to eat at local establishments, as opposed to chain restaurants and FYI - breakfast is my jam! Fava's fit the bill nicely - a sweet little spot...More

Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Family owned and one of a kind business. If you're visiting in the area put Fava's on your list of things to do. Good food and conversation.

I’ve been to Favas a few times now and the food has been great each time, but the service is the best part. Super friendly staff, cool location. Love going here

Great place for lunch, big variety and reasonable prices, and good pies. Pretty busy during noon hour so try to get there before or after noon.

Husband and I stayed two nights in Georgetown while passing through. Decided to try Fava’s per reviews from Trip Advisor. The restaurant opens at 10:00 am on Sunday and we were early, so we decided to take a little stroll down the main drag and...More

Fava's has been open for a long time for 2 good reasons. The food is great and the staff is always friendly. If you're in a rush, it's not for you. Sometimes it can take a while for you food to arrive. But, it is...More

The food is average. Nothing on the menu stands out as great. Decent little place with decent food. It's not my favorite place to eat in town but it's not the worst.

My family had been to Old Friends and were looking for a spot for lunch in downtown Georgetown. This was a perfect local gathering spot. Many people knew each other. A cute little diner. No frills, just a good basic lunch. Would definitely return

No online menu that we are aware of, however, as I recall the menu was mostly American fare. Prices were, by comparison, a bit more than competitors, however, it was worth the small upscale amount to take in the environment... More
