Many Reviews here, so this is brief: The fish is top quality as is the preparation and cleanliness; yes, I've been in their kitchen with the staff as a guest. The portions are generous, if a bit pricey. This is the ONLY place I order just ONE "Fish Taco", because its a huge fried fish fillet, heavily garnished, and fills... More

We went to Harbor Fish and Chips due to a recommendation from our hotel. We ordered two 3 piece and a clam strips. My kids shared one pop and my husband ordered one bottle of beer. It was over $50. There were 4 of us and we left hungry. We told the guy at the hotel to stop recommending them... More

This was just a chance stop as we walked along Harbor Drive. It was close to our condo rental. We had very tasty fish tacos and coleslaw. We will be back. We planned on going back for our last meal before heading back to AZ. The kids talked us into eating elsewhere and after a so-so meal, wished we had... More

While they serve more than just fish and chips, it is their namesake and you'll love it. The pieces of fish are large (about twice the size of most fish and chip places), and they have three plates: Small (1); MEDIUM (2), LARGE (3). Each plate comes with a side dish (cole slaw -- yummy; fries -- hot and tasty;... More

The grilled fish taco was really tasty. Lots of other good things on the menu and you can walk it off at the beach.

From reviews I thought this place was going to be AMAZING! It was good...kinda pricey. But most fish places are. Since it's in the shops along the harbor it was super convenient. Always busy. Staff was nice. Fun to people watch while you eat.

They have great fish n chips! My husband liked the clam chowder. Order inside and eat outside amongst the harbor and tourists. Hated the walk from lot to harbor, you share a very narrow tunnel with cars.

This place has been there about as long as the harbor has been there. Always good food & service. Plan on a bit of a wait (not too bad) because it is a place for locals as well as tourist.

This is a favorite for anyone in the area who likes fish and chips. Filet is lightly breaded and fried so you can taste the fish not the batter. Sit outside and watch the marina, don't feed the birds or they will not leave you alone. You will not want to share! The coleslaw also good .
