Much improved

We use to go here quite often. Don't know what happened but the quality went steadily downhill. On this visit we found the food & service to be much improved. My hubby had a steak & I had broiled haddock. Both were very good. Looks like they are back on track.

We happened upon this place walking around Manitowoc. The decor and setting are nothing special. The food is good. Our server was awesome. She snuck us some dinner rolls and balsamic dip which weren't part of our meal. The food and service made this place stand out for me.

Small restaurant that is deceiving from the outside.. Good food and friendly service. Large bar area. Décor a reminder of the Rat Pack. Enjoyable lunch.

Most people go to Harborside for their steaks and seafood. Not me! We go for the BURGERS! They can not be beat. We always ask for a double mushroom swiss. Each burger is 3/4#....so that is 1 and half pounds of meat! The burger comes on a 8 inch bun with steak fries! Imagine eating that! People look at us... More

Thanks to fellow TA reviewers, we tried Harborside for lunch. Flavorful French onion soup, icy cold Ale (properly served) and a patty melt and a reuben loaded with meat. terrific lunch! I suggested they post a menu outside as I did see more than one group look at the outside and move on. They should have come in! We will... More

Harborside had a great menu selection. We each opted for a burger and were all pleased with our meal(s). The service was great. The dining area is dated, but it did not take away from the other attributes that are really important about a dining experience... food and service!

The menu was boring with little choices of local fare and variety... No whitefish... Plain tables... Few if any booths. We did have the cheese curds which were amazing... Not impressed.
