FRESH clam strips, outdoor seating available while gazing at the boats in the harbor. So relaxing. Friendly staff. Fair prices. Perfect!

The food was pretty good and the servers were very nice and helpful. Fish was cooked well. Enjoyed the coleslaw and fries. The clam chowder I really like, needed a little salt and pepper but would definitely get it again.

My family has been visiting Harbor Fish and Chips for many years. Great for lunch on a sunny day! The food is in no way a healthy choice, but great for an occasional splurge. Crispy fish, mild and delicious. Not at all fishy. Nothing fancy here. If you are looking for that this probably isn't for you. Worth a trip... More

Mostly fish and chips but they also have Hawaiian burger which is excellent. View of harbor at sunset - stunning! This is not a fancy place which is why I liked it.

This restaurant features both indoor and outdoor tables. The outdoor setting is quite nice being right on a small inlet. I was the only vegetarian in group so had slaw and chips which were very good. My wife/friends had fish and enjoyed their meals. You order at the counter, find your own seat and the meals are delivered to you.

Harbor Fish n' Chips is by far the best there is. It's right at the harbor, so after dining you can browse all the shops, go to the sports bar, look out over the harbor, or walk to the beach.

It is fun to go to the Harbor shops and dog friendly. Stay away from the fried food. The bike trail from Santa Fe goes all the way to the Harbor. I start from Douglas and the bike entrance on the West side of the street.

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
