Ranked #2 of 4 Restaurants in Nancy
Cuisines: American
Description: We were looking for a nice restaurant to have dinner after attending a family reunion near Somerset,KY last weekend. I found this one online and thought it would be nice to dine at a waterfront restaurant on Cumberland Lake. If you go, don't call and ask for directions. After about 5 calls we finally found it. It is located at a marina and you have a view of some water and lots of houseboats. The hostesses and waitress was very friendly but the decor left much to be desired and the windows were really dirty looking. The chili cheese fries were ok and my husband and I ordered the sirloin since they did not have New York Strip. The steak actually tasted like liver!!!! We went ahead and ate it, probably shouldn't have. Somerset doesn't have a lot to offer as far as restaurants but you are probably better off staying with the fast food restaurants or Ruby Tuesday, etc. We will not be back.

Had dinner overlooking beautiful Lake Cumberland. Wife had a fine BLT; I had a tasty Blackened Grouper -- both meals with Kettle Chips. Food was good & the service was excellent. The view was priceless. We'll be back!

Unfortunately , we our visit was not that exciting. We had steaks, baked potatoes and salad. The steaks were okay, baked potatoes were somewhat waxy and salads were below average. They were busy but we had a difficult time getting our waiter to wait on us. Maybe they were short handed.

This restaurant could be so much more if the food and service could only match the location and atmosphere. Have visited The Harbor many times before and you just never know what you are going to get. Food and service are so inconsistent. My wife and I ate there again tonight and the baked potato AS USUAL tasted like it... More

You can always get a good meal while you watch the boats in the marina. The food is fairly consitant although I have gotten a few less than stellar meals here . Service is the same, usually very good but occationally not the best.

Went here with local friends on Memorial Day weekend. Very busy place but we were seated quickly and served promptly. The views are amazing looking down on the water and the marina. The food was very good with plenty of options. Very casual atmosphere.

My husband and I stopped here to eat lunch while visiting the marina. The grouper sandwich was amazing for lunch and we enjoyed a beautiful view of the marina and water from the deck. We were there at a non-busy time, but I can imagine this place would be packed on weekends in the summer. Casual. Good food. Great grouper.... More

I see a lot of bad reviews on here and I can't seem to understand why. We have eaten here a couple times and haven't been disappointed at all with anything. The club sandwich with the chips is the best sandwich I've ever had, literally. And the sampler platter is a great way to start your meal. We were greeted... More

In an area with few decent restaurants, even chains, This place does not stand out. The food is fairly good compared to the other restaurants in the area but the service can stink. I have walked out a few times because I thought I had become invisible. Again when you compare the Harbor with other eateries in the Somerset area,... More

There are not a ton of options in this area. This is one of the better ones. Service was mediocre, food was average, beer was badly poured (Guinness).

Food was very good. We had the portabella fries which were great. Service was fast and our waitress was very nice and attentive. Had a great view of the marina from where we sat. I've been there on 3 different days of the week and the service and food has always been great.
