What is not to like about this restaurant? It has a great view of the inlet, great food and great service! The lobster tail I ordered was one of the best I have ever had. My waitress was so attentive, that when the kitchen supplied her with a side dish of vegetables that wasn't quite good enough for one of... More

Wow!! I was interested in trying this due to their no charge fish toppings and unlimited sides. What I did not expect to find was my new favorite crabcake. Two for $28 all shredded lump - no fillers - amazing. For the record, Captains Galley II previously held this title for me for about 8 yrs. Harrison's overlooks the Inlet... More

My family loves this place since I always request a seat along the window. A second floor window seat is truly best, but the first floor isn't bad. The menu here doesn't have much for the budget traveler. We always get the crab cake sandwich ($15. The cheapest item that could count as a meal is the $10 chicken sandwich).... More

My husband and I had our first date here December 1997 and we recently went back to visit on our 15th wedding anniversary. We sat at the raw bar which is awesome! The food and the service were both great. I love the fact that the oyster stew is made fresh right in front of you!!! and you certainly can't... More

We went on Saturday night near dusk. It's located at the very end of the boardwalk next to the inlet, and our second-floor window table let us look out at the ocean and the boats entering the bay. The view was great. On top of that, I got a heaping plate of tilapia, clams, and shrimp, all of which were... More

What can I say about Harrison's? Its a great location and the views at the inlet are great. They have a great source of locally caught fish and I think with some effort this place could be a "must visit" location - but it just doesn't live up to it's promise. Parking is handy and you get a couple of... More

Right on the water at the inlet. You can see the boats going by right out the window. Great view. Food is good. Crab Imperial is best!! Endless sides is also a plus.

One of the worst dinning experiences I have ever had. I ordered a steak, medium, and it was far past well done. It was completely dried out. They apologized and took it away to cook another one. The next steak they brought back was completely raw in the middle and cold to the touch. The coloration on the inside of... More

This was a great restaurant in a great location on the boardwalk. It has beautiful ocean views - one evening for dinner we saw both wild ponies on a remote beach and dolphins swimming in the ocean. The raw oysters and clams were wonderful. The grilled ahi tuna was the best we have ever had - the sauce it was... More
