Good Food & a Great view

Menu has a good selection of seafood, raw bar and sandwiches, and it's family friendly. Harrison's has a water front view and is at the very end of the boardwalk, making it a great place to eat and then "walk the boards".

My wife and I went to this restaurant for our 10th anniversary. Site made it seem on the more upscale side. We had made reservations for 7 and when we arrive we requested to be on the 2nd floor and that we would be willing to wait at the bar until that request could be accommodated. At the bar my... More

Made reservations to celebrate an anniversary and was expecting something spectacular from all the reviews! Unfortunately very disappointed. The restaurant is worn and dated. We were seated alongside the window on the main level that just looked over the roadway watching cars drive by with the odd boat just beyond. Not the "amazing view" we were expecting. Not from here... More

I will say this is the one restaurant we continue to go to every time we are in OC because their fried clams are the best and very meaty. This trip I took my sister and niece and my daughter here. We did get a variety of appetizers and entrees. The crab dip and calamari strips were really good (the... More

An excellent place to go out in OC if you're celebrating something or just want to treat yourselves! It is a little bit pricey, but it's an upscale restaurant with food and staff that hit the mark. They've got an excellent seafood selection, but also offer a few "land" choices if someone in your party is not a seafood lover.... More

We had dinner for 23 people at Harrison's for our wedding on June 24, 2015. I had provided them everyone's order the day before so we could keep on a time schedule due to a sunset cruise we were taking after dinner. They were extremely accommodating, the service was exceptional and the food was amazing! Thank you Harrison's for your... More

We always saw this place at the beginning of the boardwalk, but just started eating there a couple years ago. Always a great meal and service. Don't forget the coupon from OC book for a free shrimp cocktail or glass of wine for everyone that orders a meal :)

-- Any feeling of dining with a great view is immediately nullified by the large amounts of bird waste all over the windows. -- Food was a step up from bad. -- Extremely absent wait staff. We waited 15 minutes after being seated for someone to ask about drinks. -- We had a group of four, by no means a... More

Their seafood chowder is on my must have list for every visit. This trip we also had the seafood au gratin, it was only so so, don't think I would order it again. It is very peaceful watching the boats come and go in the harbor. Nice place for a quiet lunch. Very attentive staff.

I had a plate of fried oysters that were outstanding - very large, very sweet, almost creamy inside, and fried to perfection. My husband had a mixture of seafood in a cheesy broth. It was very tasty, only the shrimp were a bit overcooked. The meal comes with bread and tiny muffins and a choice of as many sides as... More
