Visited for a late lunch around 2pm with my daughter. Ordered a kid's meal (corn dog basket) and a fish combo (fish & chips w/ fried clam strips). The food was prepared and cooked to order and took about 8-10 minutes to arrive. Fried potatoes were nice and crispy, clam strips were very good, fish filet was fresh and crispy. Corn dog was cooked properly and kiddo liked it. Only 3 stars because of the fish fillet: no flavor on the fish, tasted no seasoning. Not even a hint of salt or pepper. Bland at best. Friendly staff, clean place with a great view of the harbor, deep history and ambiance. Will return and order something different for another chance at a better rating.

Last week, we ate at Harbor Fish and Chips with our nephew and his wife who were visiting from Meridian, Idaho. It was their first choice for lunch, having been there several years ago. The piece of fish was huge and crispy...done just right, with a choice of cole slaw and french fries. We also had the clam chowder.....everything was DELICIOUS! If you truly want a taste of Oceanside, do not miss this place, it has inside and two outside eating areas with tables. We each had a two piece fish dinner but it was so huge, we could only eat one piece. There is enough to share! This is a place we are proud to take visitors.

OMG....get a fish basket with 2 huge pieces of fish and awesome fries and as much tarter sauce as you want. The fish is so good, fresh and huge portions. Sit at a table outside and watch all the harbor action--which is quite a lot!

I stopped here for lunch to sit outside and view Oceanside and the boats and the view was great. I ordered the grilled fish special, and the sea bass was poor quality, the lettuce in the salad unappealing and the coleslaw average. I felt it was also overpriced for the quality of fish I got. I ate it because I was so hungry and I was on my way to San Diego.

Food looked great and the restaurant was highly recommended. We ordered the two piece fish and fries basket and six piece shrimp and zucchini. It was very busy but waited 20 minutes for food. The food looked good and breading was crisp but it was very bland. The zucchini was greasy and had no flavor. Very disappointed. The restaurant offered indoor and outdoor dining and the views were great. Wished the food was better.

Harbor Fish and Chips is a great place to eat. You order at the counter and when it's ready, you can eat outside at the picnic tables and enjoy the marina. The food is freshly made and delicious. It's also very reasonably priced.

I do not eat seafood so I had a Cheeseburger and Fries that was juicy and delicious. My Fiance liked but did not love the clam chowder and liked the fried fish and shrimp but wishes it was crispier. He did not like the cocktail and tarter sauces.

I have always enjoyed the fried fish here. I ate 2 whole fried fish pieces along with some french fries and felt a little queezy afterwards because of how greasy the meal was but the flavor was good. They cost about as much as a sit down restaurant however it is at a neat location and you can eat your food while watching whats going on in the harbor.

Business never stops at this little place on the harbour. The staff are friendly and helpful and they have a slick operation going. The fish comes coated and delicious and the fries are perfect, especially sitting by the harbour wall looking out over the marina. We had lunch one day and dinner another, it was so good. Enjoy

A thin piece of fish with greasy batter twice as thick as the fish. Ordered the Sampler. Got 2 pieces of fish instead of one; maybe that’s why we got two, because the fish pieces were so small. The shrimp was cooked perfectly, but it also had too much greasy batter. The French fries weren’t all that good. But the chowder was all right. Will try all the other places before going back here

The service is excellent and the fish is fresh and tasty. One can eat inside, on an enclosed patio, or outside at water's edge (seagulls and other avian friends sometimes join you there). Wine and beer are available. The clam chowder shows up the fancy places easily. One of the nicest spots in Oceanside.

We ordered take out. The fish and fries were in one box, nice and hot. The chowder was in a container with a lid that did not seal, just sat on top. We thought we kept it level but it spilled all over, made a huge mess. The bit that was left in the bowl was not very thick, and not much clam. I would get the fish again, but not the chowder. Their tarter sauce is very good and creamy. Friendly counter service. Indoor and outdoor seating with nice harbor view. Coke products.

This place is very near the the beach in Oceanside. And you get what you pay for. Fish and chips quickly prepared and served without any frills. We recommend the fish tacos, but be aware that these are very large. The clam strips and fries are probably a good option for kids. You order and pay at the counter. Thereafter, your number is called and you collect your food at the counter. Nothing extraordinary, but everything was edible and reasonably tasty.

Ate here because of the proximity to our hotel and the brochure (excellent resource!). Was dark, chilly and just wanted a quick, simple meal so headed here. Very large portions of fish. The tacos were huge. Chowder very nice and creamy. The service was quick although it wasn’t busy at that time of day. Can see that this would be a popular place during nice weather in the daytime. We ate outside on the heated patio but be sure to sit fairly close to the heaters. The person who took our order mentioned that it was actually warmer out there than inside. You order at the window and they call your order for pickup.
