The food at Harbour House Restaurant is so well done and so fresh, we were very pleased. There is nothing quite like walking through their garden out back (and meeting their lovely goats) and then later having produce that was just picked from that garden in your meal. THAT is quality and that is what we found (and were very... More

Had not gone there for over a year because the last time we had terrible service and equally awful food. Decided to try it again on a Sunday for brunch at 1130 but we were told there was no brunch menu and that breakfast ended at 11. We could only have the lunch menu. There was only one other table...

The food at Harbor House was certainly very good but nothing exceptional. They make a big deal of advertising their home grown organic vegtables and while they were good, they were not overly exceptional and some of them were undercooked to the point that they were inedible. It is pricey with dinner for two costing $80.00 + including the tip... More

Food was good; staff seemed a bit disorganized. At the door is a sign that reads, "Please wait to be seated". As I arrived at the hotel, I wanted to inquire about reservations for the evening. I waited... and waited... several of the staff looked right at me -- even walked past me, but no one addressed me. I eventually... More

We made reservations for a Sunday night while staying at the resort for three nights on a long weekend. Staff were welcoming and made us feel very special. We ordered the set menu and enjoyed perfectly timed gourmet food being served to us so that we truly could enjoy an evening of fine dining. Not being rushed at dinner is... More

HH was one of three Go To places on SSI to eat - mainly because of Chef Brooke Winters - she has now left (temporarily we hope) for a break (Sept 2014). The menu has suffered as a result of her departure. Sunday Prime Rib was a tradition on the island with reservations a must. Last visit, the gravy appeared... More
