We all enjoyed the sea bass that was featured the night we were there but unfortunately the staff in the restaurant seemed disorganized not overly friendly. Dining out is about more than the food and Harbourside Grill failed when it cam to atmosphere.

Had the breakfast buffet here and for the priced I expected more options. It was decent, not worth the $20/person though. Server and hostess were great.

We ate breakfast here every morning and although the service was slow, it was a good buffet and you only need a server for coffee, water, and your check. Saw Manatees at the harbor right next to the restaurant one evening, which was fantastic. Not sure on dinner, as we only ever ate breakfast here but the food and selection was good!

Staying at the South Seas Island Resort we found it easy to visit Harbourside Bar & Grill.
The main theme of of our dinner was the amateur waiter and food which was overpriced.
Here are some examples;
1) a group of four persons, only three of us had a glass of icewater and one to one of us, the icewater was served in a plastic cup.
2) We had a smoked fish dip for starter which was quite good.
For main course we had prime rib and roasted chicken over salad and feta cheese. At a price of $24 I guess we paid for the whole chicken.
3) The waiter tried to do his best, however we felt like it was his first time serving at a restaurant. When three out of four people had finished their meal, he took their plates and did not pay attention to the last person still eating.
4) Furthermore, the waiter asked the three persons whether they would like any dessert, meanwhile the forth person still having his main course...!
5) When having the cheque, the sum was too high, which the waiter agreed.
Won't go there again.

While it is a bit pricey, the food and service is well worth the cost. We spend a week in Captiva every year. We try many restaurants, but we make sure to dine here. Year after year, our best dining experience is Harbourside.
