Good fish, friendly people

Looking for good fish (and a lot of food) with friendly service? Harbor Inn in Morganton is the place. Of course, the cake is unreal.

Harbor Inn Seafood used to be the place to go for an excellent fish dinner or lunch and offers take out but the last year or two I have seen a decline in business and each time we go I hope for improvement but so far it hasn't happened I'm sorry to say.

I say "deceptive", because they do hush puppies differently than any place that I've ever eaten before. And I think they know that people aren't aware of what they're up to, so they use it to make a little extra money. Here's what I'm talking about.... ALL seafood places like this that I've ever been to, bring you out hush... More

I am always shocked at the amount of food you get on a plate here. This evening I even got a daily special and still had a full meal and full to go box left. My wife, my two children and I ate all we could hold and still walked out the door with three to go boxes full for... More

The Service is fast and the staff is courteous, Good selection of Seafood. If you're the land lover in the family,that's not a problem either. It's a very clean Establishment, the bathroom was clean as well. Very affordable.

I always experience great service when I eat there. The food is always hot and the wait time has always been short for prepared to order food. You will find it noisy at meal time because the folks who eat there are many and varied from kids crying to old folks jabbering and groups laughing. This is a good time... More

Every time I eat here I find hair in my food. The parts of the food that don't have hair were actually really good.
