Large dog sitting on a seat & licking the table. Barman petting and kissing him and then filling drinks without washing his hands. Overcharged £10 on our first and only round which was refunded without quibble when queried. Were we taken advantage of because we werent Northern. No wonder tourism is down in the North.

This is one of those places that's a little bit of a victim of its own success. It can be a long wait before you a table. Although it's a kind of family restaurant that can lead to impatient cranky children. (and adults) Because it is so popular it lacks a little attention to detail. As other people have mentioned,...

My mate and his step-father had a belly laugh in The Harbour Bar last week. We stopped in for a few drinks before heading to my mate's Mum's for dinner. I wish we could have stayed on. The outisde is unpreposessing, as is the interior, almost to the point of design. I suppose the intent is that the focus is... More

What a jewel... seriously, even if you don't drink guiness, just try a glass here - Willie Greg treats it as an art form!!

The food was nice and arrived quickly. I'm not that keen that you order at the bar and have to get your own drinks and no one comes to ask how the meal was. I had wanted to try this restaurant for a while and even thou it is nice, the food quality at Jackman&Pye is definitely better.

myself and boyfriend had dinner at the harbour bar a short while ago. we said we would get a starter as we were starving but looking at the menu there wasn't a great choice to choose from for starters, so we went ahead and order the cheese fondue and it was delicious. I would have never thought it would have... More

Mark was visiting from Sydney and expressed a wish to travel a Northern Ireland. After a lovely journey North through Sligo, Donegal and Derry, we came to Portrush. My son had recommended a call to The Harbour Bar and he was right; what a time we had there. A few beers followed by a fabulous meal in the Bistro and... More
