Great Shrimp

Decent food, mostly fried. Next door to an open air bar that's located next to the marina. Good atmosphere. Take out only.

The reviews are correct. It is a little hole in the wall that serves great food. It is attached to Woody's and you have to walk to the side where there is a sliding window with a chalkboard. Do not let this drive you off! They have great food-you can eat next door at the Back Porch Bar-which is right... More

Harbor Grill is wonderful. We ordered a shrimp po-boy and a pulled pork sandwich and took them next door to the Back Porch Bar to eat with a cocktail. The shrimp po-boy was exceptional. At least 5, maybe 6 very large, perfectly fried shrimp with all the fixins. The pulled pork was also very good. Another great place in the... More

Pros: Went with my wife at lunch. We split a shrimp poor boy. The shrimp were very fresh and perfectly fried. The bread and french fries were excellent. The cook/server was very nice. Cons: There were only four small shrimp on a $10+ sandwich. The bar next door doesn't open until 2 pm so the seating is limited to 2... More

The food is consistently great. You will not find a better grilled or blackened fish sandwich anywhere. You get your food & take it to The Back Porch Bar (also on the water), get cold beer, eat the terrific food, and listen to quality live music. Can't beat it.

I live in Port A and take clients and friends to the Back Porch Bar a few times a week and if one did not know it, the Harbor Grill serves food to the Back Porch business as well as the entire community. Pat who owns the Harbor Grill makes sure the food is fresh and tasting good. My wife... More

We have eaten at the Harbor Grill several time, primarily because it it adjacent to The Back Porch Bar in Port Aransas. Never had s complaint. The grilled Black Drum I had a few nights ago was simply outstanding. Same night Gary P. Nunn played the Back Porch. Terrific food at a local outdoor pub on the water with a... More
