The food is excellent and great portions, the layout of the shop however is why there is not 5stars. But the crowd is most certainly worth it

I was never a fish lover until we started going to harbor fish and chips. It is battered cod, and it is crunchy and delish! You can eat out by the harbor or inside, it is truly a local fave, and always full of people! One of our must haves, when vacationing in Oceanside.

My husband and I have been going to harbor fish and chips for years. You can't beat their fish it's so tender and flaky. Breading is just right. Coleslaw is to die for. Just a small place in Oceanside by the beach. But if you go once you'll keep going back.we don't go to San Diego with out making a... More

Observing the food exiting the kitchen, I opted for a hamburger. They had turned the grill off so the burger had to be cooked another way, but I can't remember what they said... burger was below average and tasteless. Fish and chips were ordered by another. Large portions, but greasy and heavy. One visit during our time in Oceanside was... More

Fish is delicious, right on the water. Quick service. Definitely recommend. Be sure to go hungry. Fish and chips are a good deal. Fish tacos were also very tasty.

Best fish and chips, good service, Lots of seating but very casual which I liked. Good coleslaw and prices were fair. We sat outside and watched the boats come in. Lots of fun.
