Our Story


Since opening in July of 2016 we have been blessed with a tremendous amount of positive feedback and support from the local community and visitors alike.

Poke is a dish that holds a special place in the hearts for many former islanders. It is synonymous with good times, celebrations, birthdays and any type gathering of friends and family. Unlike the majority of poke shops that have been opening up around the country, we strive to keep our poke traditional to our Hawaii roots. We feature fresh air flown Hawaiian Ahi (yellowfin tuna) from the Honolulu fish auction as our staple fish of choice. We make our poke in small batches throughout the day to offer you the freshest poke possible.

Whether you eat in or take out; our casual atmosphere, fast and friendly service and aloha spirit makes Fairhaven Poke a great dining option.
