“Good Batter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The batter on the Fish and Chips is not greasy. The fish tacos are very fresh and they give you a ton of food

“The best Fish & Chips in North County!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I have to say, Harbor Fish & Chips are excellent! The fish batter is thin, greasy and hot. Very good! I think the fish is a little better quality in the morning because it does seem like the fish is alot fresher in the winter months for sure and not when there is a line out the door! The clam chowder is ok and there is a big variety of items on their menu. Not really fast food but it's pretty darn fast and worth it! If there is a line out the door, my suggestion, wait, it is worth it!

“Taste like my hometown's fish & chips in Cape Town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

First time we visited this restaurant. It was a Beautiful day, sat outside eating fresh fish & chips overlooking boats coming to dock, just like back home in Cape Town, South Africa. We have a new favorite restaurant in Oceanside now.

“EXCEPTIONAL place to eat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had fish and shrimp combos, as well as clam chowder, washed down with a couple of Coronas. Delicious, light batter and awesome tartar/cocktail sauces! Plus, dining is mostly outdoors on the marina, with little chipmunks scurrying up to see what you're eating. Will definitely be back!

“Good Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We have eaten at Harbor Fish & Chips a number of times and have always enjoyed not only the food, but also the whole experience of dining outside at the harbor.
