Stopped here based on Trip Advisor reviews last Sunday. Was surprised that the place was quiet, I guess everyone had gone to the game! The staff were friendly & our meals were timely. They didn't have a gluten free bun, so ate my hamburger with a fork... The meals were good & we enjoyed watching the first quarter of the... More

The bartenders are one of a kind and make some of the best martini's ever! I highly recommend to get the oil with the red pepper flakes as it is the tastiest appetizer ever! I consistantely order the steaks and have never been disappointed. The staff is absolutely wonderful and always makes for a great experience.

This is a MUST GO TO place. Hamburgers are excellent (buns are excellent). Also tenderloin salad is a great choice. Went there for lunch. They serve decent-sized drinks. Going back for dinner there. WHY? Some great selections we just have to order and taste. Setting up a dinner there for the Rolls-Royce Owners Club. Steaks are supposed to be awesome... More

A friend and I stopped in for lunch on a Thursday, and were seated immediately in the separate dining area from the bar. Service was fairly slow, considering there were not many customers in the restaurant. I had the special, a chili burger. Big mistake. It did not have much topping on it and that tasted mostly like processed cheese,... More

Stopped here for dinner on an overnight trip to Manitowoc. Food was wonderful (I had the prime rib sandwich, she had the prime rib special). The staff were some of the best I have ever experienced. Very friendly, funny, helpful, and fun to talk to. There is no doubt we will be back next time we are in the area.

The Harborside has the best fish sandwich in town. My wife loves the Northern pike. Great service and a very nice bar. Everything we've ever eaten there is pretty good;' and you get a lot of it. Down side, we've tried their perch basket. The breading was like concrete, and the fish was mushy. Like a lot of restaurants, they... More

Our second visit to the Harborside. Just by chance, we found this delightful restaurant/ bar last fall, on a trip around Lake Michigan. Lunched here again today, and it was, as we remember: friendly people, great food and service. We will return. Looking forward to our visit next fall. Can't wait to see Todd and Dorothy again.
