Prix Fix Lunch is Perfect

The Harbor Grill is delicious. The prix fix lunch deal is the best option on the menu. For $25 you get your choice of 3 courses. You can even substitute a course with a glass of wine of beer. My husband had delicious clam chowder and cobb salad with dungenous crab with a great Belgian ale. The... read more

The harbor Grill in Dana Point Harbor is a local eatery with very little atmosphere. The food more than makes up for that. The Smoked Halibut app is not to be believed. the fish is fresh and John's Mesquite Grilled Fish Burger is great with Dijon mustard.

Harbor Grill is a tourist restaurant with average food at prices higher than they should be. Don't get me wrong, the food is OK, but the value is not there.

While tucked away in a harbor front shop strip mall, this restaurant cooks up some of the best Lobster in the area. My wife and I both got the steak and Lobster combo and while not the... More

The Harbor Grill, specializing in seafood, has long been located in the heart of the Dana Point harbor restaurant area. The extensive seafood menu provides something for every taste, including choices for non seafood lovers. My choice this time was the lunch portion of grilled scallops in red Thai curry sauce - which was a choice to die for! The... More

The fish at Harbor Grill is excellent! Always delicious. They do it all right; salads are excellent, steaks are cooked to perfection, and burgers.yum! Whenever we get to CA we do not miss this spot.
