No wait or hostess staff. Overpriced and small portions. Water was warm with no ice and had an odd taste. Would not recommend if you’re actually looking for a meal.

The food was delicious, the service was amazing and you can’t beat the view! Our family (with 2 little kids) had a great time eating a late lunch at the pub. The friendliness and service of the staff really made this a 5 star for...me. Bartender/ server / hype girl Erin was just the best! Go there have a beer and get the tomato bisque soup.More

Not very large without the outdoor space. Place order, pick up food and go to your table. Poutine with kimchi was very good fries with spicy red cabbage & cheese, not really kimchi. Clam chowder was very good. Caesar salad - average. Everything would have...tasted better without cardboard and plastic. Only one in staff, very pleasant but overworked.More

The Harbour Pub used to be one of my favorite places on earth. After a day of sailing it was icing on the cake of a perfect day to stop there for good food and beer with a great view and ambiance. Now it’s been...ruined by extreme hygiene theater with disposable cups, paper food containers, disposable utensils, no table service, most of the menu deleted, and barked orders yelled from the hostess. The great experience I used to have there has been eviscerated. To the owners I ask that you close or open, but right now your purgatory approach is just a memorial to all the half hearted measures taken to prolong the Covid epidemic. Anyone afraid of Covid shouldn’t go to a pub. If you’re afraid close it. If you’re vaccinated open it. Right now your solution is horrible and I won’t be back until it changes.More

We are never disappointed when we come for dinner at the Harbor House-it is a bit off of the beaten path and probably has more locals than the average ferry tourist restaurants on Winslow Way. We very much appreciate the large parking area which has...plenty ty of spaces. The open area seating has booths and their windows are opened for extra ventilation but we live their massive deck! It has seating for many tables-tables for two, four, and round tables that seat 5-6. The open are bar is easy to navigate-scan the QR code or ask for a menu-drinks can be ordered (non alcoholic beers, we had cosmopolitans and Moscow mules) quick turn around. We the. Ordered the smoked salmon clam chowder which was amazing! We would order this again. The fish and chips-cod and chips as well as salmon and chips were a wonderful change. I do have to say that the bread pudding is enormous and absolutely divine!! Thanks for an outstanding evening with great friends!More

This place is great. The staff were helpful and the view from the deck is lovely. We ordered a couple of their cocktails which are served in large plastic cups over ice. The lavender lemon drop was excellent. There menu is limited, and we were...looking for an app to share, so we ordered the salmon and goat cheese main course between us ($18). It was served in a to go container, for covid, but was really delicious.More

The Pub used to be my favorite spot for the food, service, and view. It still has the view. The menu is extremely limited and it no longer table service - order at the counter, pick up at counter and bus your own table yet...prices still reflect table service. Everything is served in disposable dishes including plastic cups for cocktails. I really hope they can return to what the Pub used to be....More

Service? What service? You look at your cell phone for the menu.....what no chicken, what no meat......you stand in line at the bar and order your food and drinks..........when your food is finally ready they call your name, you pick it up......the food is served...in disposable containers, and you may have to share the one plastic knife that you are given, and if you want any condiments (salt/pepper) you must go back inside to fetch.....after eating a mediocre Caesar Salad or another small entree....you bus your own table. Oh, forgot to mention there is no reservations, self seating and closed on Sundays. Menu is greatly reduced, with none of the old favorites. Not sure who decided to "upgrade" to this new version, but it was a huge mistake in our opinion. Only thing going for this restaurant is the view. This new version of dining fortunately couldn't change that because there was no room for the drive-thru window.More

Huge swarms of tourists disembarking from ferry, but I guess this place is not that interested. Last time I'm using trip advisor. Google maps gets it right.

One of us had fish and chips. They were well prepared. I had a salmon salad bowl. Really good. Strong Mojitos, thought they needed a bit more simple syrup. Plenty of mint and muddled nicely. All food was served in plastic ware. So that we...could take outside, or sit on dock. View is pretty right next to docks and secluded walkways along the water. Great spot.More

Because the #1 restaurant was closed for inside dining the Italian restaurant, we chose this one instead. Bad...Bad choice. Let's see, you order from the bar, then find a table, clean it yourself, then you are your own waiter, going back to the bar when...called for your food and refills. The coleslaw my wife had reminded me of the TV show Alone, when one of the survivalists, ate the remains of a muskox stomach. In fact that might have been better! I think that it was spoiled. The fish is good, the fries terrible. If you are really hungry, please find anywhere else to dine.More

We come here several times a year. We were big fans prior to the pandemic. There have been numerous changes now starting with the self service aspect. The food is also packaged in to go containers. We only saw one person working the place on...a Friday afternoon. I guess that’s all that’s needed with seat yourself and bus your own table. The food is still good and the view is too. I just miss the old presentation.More
