“Great fried shrimp”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I have eaten at Harbor Inn numerous times, including bringing out of town family to Harbor Inn. The foods I have eaten included fried shrimp, fried fish, and fried clams. They were all excellant and the fish was not fishy tasting. Their cole slaw is one of the few cole slaws I will even eat in a restaurant. It tastes freshly made every time I've eaten there. Did I say, love the hush puppies...best I've EVER had.

As for the previous bad reviews, I can only guess that occasionally you
eat at a restaurant that the people just weren't giving it their all. I have never experienced bad food or poor service.

Lastly, the prices are very reasonable and generous in portions. If you have room for desert, they are a bit pricey, but gourmet cakes do not come cheap and the serving size makes for about two servings per slice.

“Not the best seafood!”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Have eaten here several times and each is about the same. Not much flavor to the seafood. Prices not bad if you want filler food. Baked potatoes off flavor and seemed recooked. The Hunts ketchup bottles looked reused at least a year. The labels are dirty and half worn off. Not nice to touch or look out. Lost me for not spending a quarter extra for new bottles.

Reviewed February 15, 2012

Price is great. Food is good, not great. Volume of food is very good and it is a good place for fried seafood.

“Superb seafood in an appropriate atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

The fried oysters are to die for! I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The desserts look incredible but I'm always too full to go for them!
