Great folks and the best fish n chips in oceanside. The harbor view is excellent and we always enjoy the great weather and of course finish off with an Ice Cream right behind harbor fish and chip. We will be seeing you on the 4th with the whole family who love you fish tacos I enjoy your sampler plate excellent.

After reading other reviews, I decided that I would give this a try. It was packed on Friday night after 7. There was no patio seating but inside there was plenty of tables. The atmosphere was worth the wait for the food. But even the few minutes went by so fast. Fish and chips were to die for. I would... More

Good quality. Food for everyone in your group. Reasonably priced. Have eaten here many times. The fried zucchini is a meal itself. Huge proportion.

We followed TA reviews to a wonderful experience. The food, pricing, and harbor sights/sounds were a great combination. We had chowdah, fish/chips and shrimp/chips. Boats, kayakers, and paddle boarders entertained us as we ate outside on the boardwalk under an umbrella. Followed this meal with the same meals at Carlsbad 2 days later with the same success.

I live 60 miles from Harbor fish & Chips. When I am in the mood for fish & chips I jump in the car and head for here. I love the thin crispy batter and the fish is great and fresh, portions are large. I like to set out side and watch the boats in the harbor. I recommend this... More

We spent $32.40 for our lunch here...the specialty of course is the fish and chips which are pretty good. This is an "order at the conter" type of place and is very casual with tables outside overlooking the marina and tourists going to a fro to the beach. I ordered the fish tacos which are very big and the side... More

Casual late afternoon lunch in a beautiful setting. My friend enjoyed his fish n' chips. I tried to eat a little lighter and chose salad with grilled chicken. Guess I'm spoiled...but I've had lots better. Dry plain chicken breast on a bed of room temperature iceberg lettuce. A few chunks of tomato on the side. Ho hum! (The Carlsbad Harbor... More

nice large portions - we had the fish & shrimp combination, very tasty. i like tin-fish by the pier better but these fish&chips are a little more authentic.
