I cannot believe I have not rated Harbor F&C before. We have made the 45 mile drive for the Thursday taco special three times over the last year. Never disappointed in the Fish Tacos, chips and cole slaw. They are the largest and tastiest fish tacos we have had. The integrity of the staff is worth a lot to me.... More

My husband and I got to live in Oceanside for a while, and this was one of our Go To places to eat and spend the afternoon walking around and enjoying the view of the harbor and the little shops surrounding. Delicious fish and chips!! Don't know if they still have them, but they used to have fried oreos...the BEST!... More

Oh my goodness this little place on the Harbor is THE best. I ate there 3 times in one week and have craved it ever since my family left. Their fish is to die for, I think I did... Don't miss this little place for anything!!!

Freshly-cooked and delicious food in an excellent setting to people-watch with plenty of activity on the water close-by. They really know what makes a satisfying meal.

I travel in my job and this is a regular stop for me. Delicious chowder, huge fish tacos, and light and crispy fish and chips. I'd stop just for the cole slaw but that's just me. If you are looking for a local experience and love seafood you will enjoy a local favorite right on Oceanside harbor. Try the fish... More

There’s something special about enjoying authentic fish and chips when you’re seated at the edge of the sea! To be specific, harbor fish and chips is located at the Oceanside Harbor. It’s been around for quite some time, and the one thing they have perfected as their namesake. The fish is crispy and light, the coleslaw has the perfect combination... More

This restaurant sits on the Boardwalk at Oceanside Harbor. It is a good location to sit, eat and people watch. I ordered the 2 piece fish and cole-slaw basket. For $ 10 the price was decent. The deep-fried crust on the fish was savory and the fish itself was very good. While the portions were large, the meaty fish portion... More

Traditional no frills Fish and Chip shop, but the food was awesome (and this is coming from a Brit). We went back 3 times during our stay. Helpful friendly staff. One word of warning, they do seem to stop the cooking a few minutes before they close, so be careful you dont miss out.

Nice! Exactly what you'd want from a local fish&chip. Come hungry and not caring about health, and you're in for a greasy fried treat! The food tastes great, the staff seemed very friendly, and the prices are reasonable for waterfront casual dining. It's filled with all sorts of wacky nautical themed decorations, making it that much more fun and family... More
