Wonderful food.

The restaurant is very pretty and looks out over a marina. We both had sear scallops that were absolutely delicious. Service was good and our server very was very helpful and informative.

2 adults and 2 children 4 years and 2 years had dinner. The food was average to good but nothing to write home about. The kids were happy with a plenty of options. The views were nice of the marina and the staff was pleasant. The bar made a stiff drink and prices were reasonable. I would look for another... More

The service is good, but the food and conditions of the furnishings are not. Surrounded by beauty and on the harbor surrounded by yachts, called a 5 star, it leaves a lot to be desired. The road onto the resort has not been re paved since it was decimated by Hurricane Charley. The restaurants are not top quality and the... More

Must admit despite being on a lovely resort and having a stunning setting at the side of the harbour this was a disappointing culinary experience on several grounds. 1. Food! Ridiculously sweet! Even the butter was full of sugar, never tasted anything quite like it. The steak was beautifully cooked but the sauces and rice again, too sweet to eat.... More

Good to see the place is once again a top pick. We arrived during a busy service on Friday night, great ambience and supper food one whole snapper and two lobster tails and... More

This place is fabulous with it's wait staff, and food menu. There is something for everyone, and the seafood is so fresh! A few steps away from the marina where you can see the resident manatees.

We didn't expect much based on reviews. But the service was friendly and at least b+, the place was clean, and the food was really good. We had a couple whole snappers, a blackened snapper, and a grouper, chicken and fruit for the kids. Everyone liked their food. Wine list was simple and mediocre (typical Florida). But we really appreciated... More

Probably the best of the eating options in the north of the resort. Serves a good buffet breakfast, but 23dollars. Evening can get busy and there is no booking. Outside, both covered and open, and inside tables. Evening menu a bit pricey but food good and service friendly. Cabaret in the Harbourside area until 9pm. Maitre D seemed a little... More

We were staying at the South Seas Resort and thought we'd give the Harbourside a shot. We made a reservation and showed up ten minutes early. Mistake one. Mistake two was committing anymore time to this place. The poor hostess was nearly in tears, the manager was no where to be found and the staff seemed over whelmed by a... More
