My husbands dinner was burnt. He ate most of it because he refuses to send anything back for fear of having something done to his food in retaliation. My food was good but my desert wasnt as good as it used to be. I had the orange crush cake. It was lacking in flavor and a little dry.

My wife and I have been to the Harborside twice in the past two weeks and both times have enjoyed top notch seafood entrees. There is nothing fancy about Harborside as it resembles a southern seafood shanty. It sits right at the harbor and you can watch the fishing boats coming in. Needless to say the fish is so fresh...

The service is the worst I've ever seen, we asked to speak with a manager and she refused to see us right in front of us. I've never seen anything like it!

The food and beverage in this establishment is phenomenal. I had a seafood pasta that is almost unmatched, second only to the wonderful cajun shrimp pasta my fiancee makes.

A dilapidated building that looks like it should be condemned. Smelly inside & cold on enclosed porch they feed u on. Famous orange crush taste like tang. Food a non event. $75 lunch for 2 was next to horrible. Go anywhere else- The Shark across the Harbour for example. Wonder when the board of health visited this place last?

This place used to be a biker bar of some type in the past. There is a sign at the entrance that says NO COLORS. However the place is friendly and very casual atmosphere. If you go in the winter time be sure to dress warm. The dining room is a converted outdoor deck with plastic sheets instead of windows.... More

Generally a fun place, located on the water. Decent, standard seafood menu with burgers, salads, etc. Service was very slow on both visits, and not during the busiest time. More enjoyable in nicer, warmer weather when the windows are open.

Four golfers on our annual trip to OC dropped in for Happy Hour (s). Right beside the harbor snd across from commercial fishing trawlers. The beer was cold, the oysters were fresh and the shrimp were tasty. Rustic inside and that might turn off some people but if you go in knowing it's a real casual place with wood floor... More
