The food is good here. No complaints. And, it is convenient if you are staying at the resort. But the prices are ridiculous - perhaps 1.5-2x what is justified. This restaurant is part of the South Seas Plantation Resort. You are much better off leaving the resort and eating at a nearby establishment.

I have been coming to South Seas for over 10 years now and we had come to reserve our visits to Harborside for the special occasions because the food and atmosphere really was wonderful. In July we frequented Harborside three times. It would have been more had it not been so disappointing. The good: fantastic fish spread; beautiful bar and... More

This is your typical "inside the resort restaurant", Average and Overpriced. My Wife had a Seafood type Soup with shrimp, scallops, etc. She said it was good. I had the "Skirt Steak", it was hard and chewy not cooked as I requested. Wine list is decent so that is a plus. Service is ok but our waiter would go "MIA"... More

There are a couple restaurants to choose from at the South Seas Island Resort. The Harborside Bar & Grill ended up being our "go to" restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was very good!

We looked forward to a fine dining experience but were disappointed in the limited menu. Service was very good though. It was an expensive restaurant.

The buffet has wonderful options and tasty food. The service was oddly slow & scattered when a server was needed. For the price we hesitated to bring our kids and chose to have brunch after we dropped the kids off at the kids camp.

Fresh mozzarella on the weekend buffet with great variety of food. Would not return for weekdays to order from menu. Service on both visits was very spotty; almost got up to go searching for someone!! Pretty setting.

We had an amazing stay at the South Seas Island Resort, so we decided to try the Harbourside for breakfast. We were pretty disappointed. We were seated immediately but there were not many guest at the restaurant. We waited about 10 minutes before our server came and she was preoccupied by something. She brought us coffee and waters and that... More
