Very Good Seafood

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always very good. Love the hushpuppies. Very good. The only time I eat fried seafood is when I come here and indulge in the fried catfish and shrimp. So good. I have not tried their broiled menu yet but have heard other customers say that is also... read more

Harbor Inn was convenient to our hotel so we tried it. It was pleasant. Decor was nice and food was good.

Loved this restaurant, it was opposite the Candlewood suites where I was staying. I had the Flounder, Scallops and Prawns with Hush puppies, Baked Potato and Coleslaw and it was delicious. Waitress was brilliant and could not do enough to make my stay perfect.

Ram and I love this place, so it's difficult to be unbiased about my review. The first weekend getaway we took together we found the Harbor Inn Seafood in Greenville and it has always held a sort of kitschy sentimental feel for us that will keep us coming back forever. First, there's no illusion here, this is, as the red... More

This is not an expensive place to eat, although it may look like it from the outside. It has a diner-style atmosphere. If you order a steak, you won't be disappointed. They may not be thick, but they are tender and well-seasoned (not over-seasoned...it was delicious). I had the fried jumbo shrimp with my steak, and they were also good.... More

Food was hot and prompt and the service was very friendly. I had broiled scallops and shrimp--well seasoned. The salad was fresh. However, this is not a place for a romantic evening--no liqueur, very bright lighting.

We and our friends always enjoy our meals here. Lunches are very reasonable and you get plenty of food. We rarely eat hushpuppies but theirs are very good. Sweet potatoes are delicious, always well done. Have had various seafood there and liked it all. I really enjoy the shrimp tacos. Wait staff is good - Joy is a delight and... More

Good place to go with a group of friends; wait staff is friendly, and service is prompt. Good variety on menu of seafood; baked chicken is good too!

This place has good fried seafood. The service was a little slow. Had to wait to order a long time and the drink service refills were slow in coming. It was okay but could have been better.

I ordered the scallops. Since I'm from Florida, I know fresh seafood and Scallops are one of my favorite foods. The food, all of it, was so bland, I am unsure that it was seasoned at all. The hushpuppies were hard on the outside and darn near runny/gooey on the inside. Skip this place.
