Beautiful setting, delicious seafood!

We made a late Valentine's reservation but were seated quickly in what turned out to be one of the best tables overlooking the harbor with a very large yacht to look at. We ordered grouper and red snapper and both were expertly prepared.

Meandered into Harbourside one evening during our stay last week at South Seas Resort and tried the calamari appetizer, shaker salad and filet mignon - all superbly created. Jackie the bartender was such a sweetheart and the restaurant manager Jim Lee was just the kindest guy! My husband and I struck up a conversation with Jim about our love of... More

The atmosphere was wonderful, overlooking the harbor. The service terrific ! When my WHOLE fish came ( my fault - thought it was a filet) the waiter offered to debone it & did a beautiful job. It was delicious, and the Calamari appetizer divine. The ribeye on the other hand was a terrible thin cut of meat, and would not... More

We decided to give Harbourside a try, as we really felt like staying close that night. The location of the restaurant is a wonderful one....looking out at the boats in the harbor. You also get a nice moon rise in that direction. There was a great guitar player outside that we could hear while sitting on the porch. We decided... More

Had a wonderful dinner of blackened grouper with island rice and carrots and green beans. One of the best meals I've ever had! I'd love the recipe for the rice with pineapple.

Our room was right across the street... would have eaten here more while on vacation if the prices were reasonable. Instead, took the resort shuttle into town several nights and had great seafood dinners for half the price!

The guitar player was amazing. The food got mixed reviews from our group, The oysters were some of the best we have ever had. Shucked perfectly, a good size and tasty; the grouper was seasoned perfectly and the crab cakes were so so. I have heard they have amazing breakfast so we will try that next time.

If you are not a big eater, the $22.00 adult price of admission is steep for what it is. They have a child's price of $14.00 and, by my calculations, they lost money on my 13 yr old grandson, so I figure we were even at the end of the meal. It is an average small buffet with an omelet... More

They had something for the grownups, but also had a great selection for the kids. The brunch was wonderful!
