This place has really gone down hill. Last two visits the food was terrible. On the last visit I noticed that it is also very dirty. Something has gone very wrong with this place.

Our food was terrible. French onion soup was pure salt it was like eating a bullion cube. My husband's steak was mostly fat and my shrimp crab pasta dish had 3 little shrimp and one piece of fake crab and was very salty.

Stopped in for lunch on our first visit to this restaurant. We were a little disappointed that they only offered a limited menu, primarily sandwiches. The service was good and the sandwiches were reasonably priced and tasty. Will probably go back in the evening to try the dinner menu.

First Impression...Local Establishment. Appeared welcoming/inviting. Upon entering, very dimly lit atmosphere in the bar room. Staff was efficient and somewhat friendly, but not overly. Yes "the Hamburger" was HUGE. The QUALITY of the meat served was VERY troubling. The Burger to be described as very thin DRY patty, grayish in color. It was served Luke Warm, to include a strange...

The Harborside has been a go to restaurant for many years. More along the lines of a supper club than a fine dining establishment. Has a very extensive menu. The food is always well prepared and offers you very good value for the dollar. Youe will not leave hungry. One of their signature entrees is a 3/4 pound hamburger with... More

This place has slipped so sadly into a less than mediocre establishment that it is sad. They have expanded seating beyond the capacity and the talent of the kitchen staff and quality has taken a nose dive. Ordered prime rib -medium- a 'special' on Saturday nights. It came out well and dry, with no added enhancements- no herbs, no mushrooms,... More

This Bar and Restaurant was a double whammy in a good way. The bartenders mix up delicious martinis and the food was absolutely delicious. I can't stop thinking about how good the Cajun Shrimp were! Everything is seasoned beautifully. Cocktails that are sweet without overdoing it too. Definitely make a reservation if you're here on a weekend.

Walking distance from Baymont Inn and Maritime Museum made this restaurant our choice for dinner. Service was great as was the food. However, I was disappointed that there was no harbor view.

Thought this would have a nice view of the harbor from the name. It doesn't ! Old, utilitarian interior. Wait staff, not very friendly. I had the fried perch, and it was a bit over done. I've certainly had much better. My husband had the French Dip sandwich and said it was very good. I wouldn't go back.
