“Great waterfront views!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I usually go here for afternoon or after-dinner drinks and sit outside by the water. It is by the marina and you can watch the boats plus there is a nice breeze in the summer. Food is good and the menu is varied from seafood to burgers.

“Far less then our expectations”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Great waterfront location that we wanted to try after several good reviews. Atmosphere was really good, but food, wine list and overall experience left a lot to be desired. Salmon was dried out and tasted like was it was not too fresh. Service was excellent, very friendly staff. They are in process of revising tapas menu, and renovating, so that might be part of the problem. Hopefully will add some better wines. May go back to try some other items at a later date to see if they improve.

“Dockside Food, Fun and Drinks”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Want a relaxing evening surrounded by congenial patrons, land and sea food , beer, wine and/or imaginative drinks with a view of water and pleasure boats evocative of a seaside resort? Mariner's Harbor is the perfect place for this. Sat night my husband and I jumped in the car about 7:30 and headed for the Rondout Creek in Kingston . Both inside and outside dining areas and bars were jumping. I had an Iguana, which is the Sangria of Margaritas. This super tall drink packed a wallop. Hubby had a plain margarita up with salt followed by a beer. Menu runs the gamut from seafood to burgers prepared Italian,
American, Far East and Retro Styles. We both opted for shrimp cocktails followed by lobster tail over delicious moist and flavorful rice pilaf. Service was great. We will definitely return there many times this summer, especially bringing our company, too. If you find here on your birthday be prepared for a surprise courtesy of the management. Place is open year 'round.

“Typical”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Simply a typical "on the river" restaurant - nothing outstanding but not bad either. Very ordinary menu and service.

I am sorry that you found Mariner's Harbor in Kingston to be just typical. We have been voted the best Seafood restaurant in the Hudson Valley for quite a few years now and we have always taken pride in the quality of our food and service. Our menu is also very varied and offers many options, not just seafood. Thank you for your feedback.

“Good Time”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I didn't go to Mariner's to eat but being from the area I know that the food is great. I went to Mariner's on a Friday night because they had a DJ there and a few of my friends decided that we wanted to go out for a few hours. Well we had a blast!!!! We danced to every song that the DJ played. I didn't get the name of the DJ but he was fantastic!! I can't say enough how much fun we had; probably the most fun we've had in a long time. While I was there, my glasses must have fallen out of my purse (I had just bought them too). I called every place that I had go to that night and no one had them. I called Sara at Mariner's and she said she would take a look and she got back on the phone and said that she had a pair of glasses there and asked what they looked like. I described them to her and she said that they might be them. I was elated to hear that but I wasn't going to get my hopes up. So I went there and to my surprise, they were my glasses!! I couldn't believe it!! I skipped back to my car with a huge smile on my face. So thank you to whom ever found them and turned them in and a huge thank you to Sara for reuniting me with my glasses!! And thank you to Mariner's for have a great DJ and allowing us to have a great night of dancing!!
