Since Columbia is only about ninety two miles from Charleston and Mount Pleasant with their famous seafood places; I've tasted some good and not so good seafood. What a pleasant surprise to find a place at 7375 Two Notch Road, in Columbia, SC that does down home southern seafood with the best of them. Five of our clan went there... More

As tourists we dropped in to a very busy popular place. Good basic mostly fried mostly frozen seafood. Service was good. Several large family groups eating. Not gourmet but decent food. Well received by locals.

Visited 1/8/17. Fantastic seafood, great service, and a cheery atmosphere. The oysters-on-the-half-shell were outstanding, and the seafood platter... let's just say it was heaped up enough to warrant a take-out box (and I'm one who can usually finish my plate!). Also, one of our party wanted something not on the menu that day and the staff was able to accommodate... More

My boyfriend and I wanted seafood but not at $$$$ prices so I read reviews about Harbor Inn and we decided to try. We were not disappointed! Cheap, delicious fried and grilled seafood. Though, don't get the calamari-it wasn't that great. The salt and pepper catfish was excellent!

The amount of food we received with the seafood platter was amazing. Everything was great, the sweet tea was fanatic, and our server was very attentive. It's nothing fancy, just a "diner" atmosphere, but the food and value is wonderful.

Service could not have been better. We were greeted in a friendly manner and seated immediately and our server, Bob, came quickly to take our drink orders. I asked whether the flounder fillets were thin and he confirmed they were a bit on the thin side. I asked about the cold water cod and he said those were thicker. My... More

I have a problem with this restaurant. I eat lemon with my fish. This restaurant refuses to give more than 2 lemon slices with fish, no matter if you request more. This I cannot abide. Therefore, I have not returned.
