Great evening for my wife and I

We went on a Saturday night at 7:30. They have music that starts at 9 pm on the weekend. We started off with Mushrooms and onion rings. They were great. Nicely battered and deep fried. We then ordered the Pasta Sampler Served with lasagna, spaghetti and chicken Parmesan. $12.99. Very generous... read more

Always get fresh seafood; good beer choices on tap; live music is an extra bonus. Also have choices for vegetarians

Ate a business lunch here today. Had the blackened salmon salad - very good. Good service. Lots of choices to pick from.

Even though not directly in the water, it has a "beachy" feel. They have many items to choose from. The wait staff is good, but sometimes can take awhile for them to initially acknowledge you. The food and drink have always been good. Maybe a little pricey, but I would return.

This restaurant was very close to the Baymont hotel we were staying at across the street, and the front desk recommended that we try it. My entire family really loved their food. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the mahi mahi, both which turned out to be very good. However, the service was a bit slow, so... More

The food was good. We were here at lunch time and I had a BLT panini with a blue cheese sauce. It was really good. What I really liked was the variety of local beer on draft. I would eat here again.

Most of my family have special needs , it is nice to know there is a restaurant around who will make anything you want from scratch. The chef made every meal with our food allergy needs in mind even walked out and talked to us about them on a busy night. Reservations recommended on weekends as we waited about 30... More

The restaurant is a good local place to go for dinner with family members but it has aloud atmosphere due to several large screen TV's with the volume turned up . It can be hard to hear the person across the table from you . The food and service is good and the Menu has a limited steak & seafood... More

If you want a great meal, come to the Harbor Inn & Grill, or as the locals call it, "The Round House." I love their sirloin tips, oh, so tender, and their Pasta Sampler plate is the most fantastic pasta meal ever. Everything about this place is awesome, great service, short wait time for the food!

Restaurant was busy, even on a rainy night! We were seated and served immediately. Waitress brought a sample of a beer I was debating on so I could decide if I liked it. Ordered onion rings for an appetizer which came out quickly. Perch, bluegill and shrimp in one meal? Sign me up! My mom had the frog legs and... More
