The View Makes It Worth The Price!

Food: We didn't realize how pricey it was going to be, so we obviously ordered the cheapest meal we could find. I had the Fish and Chips and my husband had the clam chowder. Both were delicious! They had a very unique pineapple coleslaw, too! Service: My husband and I walked in after an all day... read more

My wife and I are clam chowder lovers. So this little place is perfect for a quick lunch or bowl of Clam Chowder. Right on the wharf so the sea air breeze is part of the enjoyment of this little place.

If you want really good clam chowder, don't fight the lines at Splash Cafe in Pismo - come to Harbor Hut in Morro Bay. In my opinion their clam chowder is much better than Splash!! It's think and after they add the fresh ground pepper, it's hard to beat!!

We have been eating at different restaurants in Morro Bay while spending the winter here. So far this is by far the best! It's the only one we have visited more than once (3 times so far). We have tried different meals each time and they have all been excellent. Their fish and seafood is always fresh, not over battered... More

Went in got a table right away, now I know why, asked for Fish and Chips. Very pleasant waitress . Stuffy inside no air conditioning. Owners must be cheap because it always feels stuffy inside this place. Really looking forward to a nice meal before the long drive home. So I ordered the meal and it looked good when it... More

Was expecting much more from the specialty corn meal batter for the fish and chips and pineapple slaw was regular slaw watered-down with pineapple juice. The shrimp on the shrimp and chips were large but lacking flavor. Overall bland food but great view!

Lot of good daily specials. Ask for the Father Ed Special, even though it is not on the menu. It is a tuna steak on a hamburger bun with steak fries and cole slaw. Delicious crab cakes and shrimp cocktail. It has a full bar, with the best Bloody Marys. It also has a wonderful view of the bay and... More

Great food - waterfront with quick and easy service! Good for families. I enjoyed eating outside and did some people watching while eating lunch.

My wife's family living in Morro Bay, California are frequent enough visitors to Harbor Hut to be greeted by name. They serve a wide variety of seafood dishes, all done quite nicely and they are quite happy to accept special preparation requests.The six of us enjoyed a variety of dishes making us all happy and satisfied.
