I was referred by a friend. Was surprised when I eat my take-out fish and chips. There was no moisture left in the fish. It was a flavorless chunk. Not sure if it was an off night, but with my eyes closed it tasted like over cooked chicken. No fishy taste at all.

Have been coming here for years. The fish is fresh, flaky tender and cooked perfectly. Large servings. Outside seating that is pet and child friendly. They have an eat in restaurant right next door if you prefer with an expanded menu.

I have been going to Morro Bay for more years than I can remember. I always stop at the Harbor Hut for an afternoon drink and the steamed clams! It's a can't miss! The people are friendly and the food is great!

I have been to the Harbor hut many times over the years. Usually it is pretty good food. However, tonight, that was not the case. We had 2 fish and chips with chowder and salad. And a chicken spaghetti dish. The fish was tough and the spaghetti sauce was not very good. On a bright note however, I did enjoy... More

I and 3 girlfriends stopped here for a late lunch on a weekend. It was not our first choice, but there was room for us, and no waiting. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. However, we were seated next to the window, and the sun was beating in fiercely. If the aircon was on, it was not keeping up. For... More

First off, we stand at the front for almost 10 minutes before somone acknowledges us. Then as we waited to be seated, we watch many locals get seated before us. When we finally do get seated, we wait for 10+ minutes before a server comes over to take a drink order, then they disappear. We actually watched our server talking... More

A friend who lives there recommended this to me. We ate there for lunch. It has been sometime since eating at a restaurant in Morro Bay. Our favorite place changed hands a long time ago and their fish was not good. I dislike to hunt down what I think is good fish and chips. We like the standard fish without... More

We visited at over the Labor Day weekend and although busy, we were seated quite quickly. We ordered a shrimp salad and a chicken Caesar salad, both came with the most wonderful garlic bread which was hot, crisp and dripping with butter. Probably not the best thing for the waistline but it was absolutely delicious. My husband said it was... More

Dinner out again. Nice restaurant. Friendly staff and decent service. The food was very good. The setting was great over looking the water. Crab cakes were very good and the clam chowder was good as well. I would repeat except there are many eateries to choose from in this area.
