Overall a good... More

I love the food . . . the jumbo shrimp & oysters were perfectly cooked and you could taste the freshness. You can substitute the slaw for a salad for $1.45 additional and it is well worth it . . . crisp & fresh with homemade blue cheese dressing. The service was wonderful too! Try it the next time you...

This restaurant was conventienty located across from the hotel. It was buzzing with customers and had a list of specials at the front door. The waitress was funny and helpful with suggestions of the most popular dishes. The shrimp and grits will be my next entree because I definitely will re-visit The Harbor Inn. Clean facility and good smelling restrooms!... More

Loved this restaurant, it was opposite the Candlewood suites where I was staying. I had the Flounder, Scallops and Prawns with Hush puppies, Baked Potato and Coleslaw and it was delicious. Waitress was brilliant and could not do enough to make my stay perfect.
