I went to this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. I think overall is overrated. Painfully slow service. After a very long wait for a waitress to take the order, Food was served 5 minutes after we ordered. which makes me think if this is not microwave food sold at a markup. Drinks were good. Don't think I will return.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here during our visit to Oceanside. The Harbor area is great. We shared the Baja Bucket and it was delicious.

I don't really love seafood so I was happy to see some "Mexican" food on the menu as well. I got the chicken enchiladas and they were the best I've ever had! My husband got the lobster lovers meal and he liked his too. The Salsa bar was fun but I didn't love the chips; they are heavy corn chips... More

I took my family here for a harbor lunch experience. The wait staff was friendly and kept our sodas for. The food was delicious and plenty of it. A little pricey but to be expected for a harbor restaurant.

This location at the harbour in Oceanside has terrific food, very reasonable prices and a menu with good variety. I noted a number of menu items for couples that were a very good value although I opted for something else. My wife and I actually shared the Fish and chips (Great value for certain!) and the shrimp basket. Both meals... More

The food here is very good but be prepared to pay for it. Love the chip and salsa bar, and the seafood baskets are all very good. Great location right on the marina.

I am currently in Oceanside for work and stopped in here for supper. The free chips and salsa bar had the best salsas I've ever had. My waitress recommended the tequila shrimp bowl and it was incredible. Also $6.50 25 ounce Tecates were nice too.

The food was good, but the prices are high. The drinks are crazily overpriced. I had the lobster lover combo- a lobster taco, a small bowl of lobster chowder and a lobster enchilada- it was good but not spectacular, there wasn't enough bites of lobster in any of it to justify the $20+ price. My husband had a taco plate... More

Go on taco Tuesday and scoop up $2-5 tacos that are amaizing. The carne asada are so good. They have drink specials ever night and a free salsa and chips bar. The drinks are fun and the bartender ladies were awesome.

Great fish tacos, great atmosphere. We had a good time at this place and would go back for an informal meal with good food.
