South Coast Date Night: Valentine's Day Edition

Time to wake up and smell the roses! And schedule your Valentine’s Day date. 

We get it… Valentine’s Day is not everyone’s jam. But any excuse to eat and drink is a good excuse in our book! That being said, take a look at these South Coast date night spots we picked out for you and your boo. 

Keeping It Classy 

Below are some great options if you’re looking to impress your partner. These spots have upscale vibes, so be sure to dress to impress! 

Pasta House, Fairhaven 

The Pasta House is an Italian grille with the freshest pasta that is sure to fill you up. Their filet mignon, chicken parmesan and shrimp scampi do not disappoint either! End your night with a delicious peanut butter cup martini (trust us, you’ll thank us later). The Pasta House is reservation only for VDay weekend, so be sure to plan ahead! 

Carmine’s, New Bedford 

Carmine’s At Candleworks offers an Italian fine dining experience in the second oldest building in New Bedford. We highly suggest starting with their Calamari Balsamico appetizer or their Risotto Balls (or both… #treatyoself). From flatbreads to soups, steaks and seafood, pasta options and more, they really do have it all. Call 774-510-7901 to make your reservation! 

Fireside Grille, Middleboro 

Fireside is located on Bedford Street in Middleboro and also serves as a beautiful wedding venue (keep in mind if your date goes well). Their extensive menu has something for everyone. Their sharable stone oven flatbreads are some of our favorites in the South Coast. Reservations can be made on OpenTable through their website.  

The Black Whale, New Bedford 

Located on the waterfront, The Black Whale in New Bedford serves fresh, bold and innovative food that reflects the history of New Bedford. With so many great options like Shrimp Carbonara, fresh lobster rolls, and bacon wrapped scallops, you’ll have a hard time choosing just one. Their dessert list and after dinner drinks are definitely something you’ll want to make room for. Reservations can be made online

Cute and Casual

Looking for a more low-key night? Not to worry! We also scoped out some casual, but tasty, date night spots around the South Coast that will be perfect for you laid back Valentine’s Day. 

Tipsy Toboggan, Fall River 

Tipsy Toboggan is a casual dining gastropub offering something for everyone! Tipsy Toboggan is located within walking distance from the waterfront, Narrows Center for the Arts, and Canned Heat Craft Beer Company, should you and your date decide to take a walk after dinner. Tipsy is currently hosting outdoor igloos if you’re looking to change up your eating scene! They currently have a Valentine’s Day Special with delicious meal options, dessert, and fresh cut flowers. Be sure to make your reservation

Fat Cousins Pizza, Lakeville 

You may have heard us mention Fat Cousins before. That is simply because we cannot get enough of it! Their pizza is amazing and the staff makes you feel at home. Enjoy pizza by the slice, a whole pizza, calzone, or subs and salads. Whatever you choose, we guarantee you’ll love it. Check out their menu here

Baldies Craft Pizzeria, Lakeville 

Baldies in Lakeville is also a top spot for pizza in the South Coast. Since being featured on Phantom Gourmet, we would have to say the people agree! Not only do they have a great selection of pizza, they also have 40 beers on tap, and mouth watering starters such as their tater tot poutine and mac and cheese with an herb cracker crumb. Check out their website for more! 

Fiesta, Dartmouth, Fall River, Somerset, Norton, East Bridgewater 

With five locations around the South Coast, finding a Fiesta near you shouldn’t be an issue! Fiesta has an array of enchilada, taco and burrito options as well as an endless list of margaritas. Check out their menu today! 

Barrett’s Waterfront OR Alehouse, Fall River 

Barrett’s in Fall River has two locations, giving you an option for your atmosphere! Barrett’s Waterfront is (of course) on the water, while Barrett’s Alehouse gives you a more pub-vibe. Whichever one you choose, their food will be great. We highly recommend trying their chicken mozambique bowl! Barrett’s also offers craft burgers and various house specials. View their menu

With so many options to choose from, we hope you and your special person get to enjoy each other’s company this Valentine’s Day over a delicious meal! If you decide to hit one of these spots, be sure to tag us with your meal on social media!
