We ended up here due to a suggestion. We waited an hour for our table. The bartenders were super friendly, attentive, and comical while we waited! Once were were seated we ended up in a back room and were 'forgotten'. After 12 minutes we got up and left. It wasn't even busy anymore. So disappointing. Of course we were travelling so we won't be venturing back again.

“Excellent food and staff!!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

My husband and I enjoy going to Harborside for an excellent meal with a great atmosphere. The minute we walk through the door, we are always greeted by the friendly staff. We usually go to the bar for a drink before our meal. The bartenders are great, as well as the martinis! The waitstaff has always been very friendly and we have always had great service. The food is AWESOME! We have ordered a variety of different items from their menu and have NEVER been disappointed. My husband's favorite is the Sizzler - a 20 oz NY strip. I love their pasta dishes and the Chicken Pecan. Saturday night's Prime Rib is to die for!! Even if you are out and about during the lunch hour, stop by to grab one of their amazing burgers or a reuben sandwich!! If you are ever in Manitowoc, you should definitely eat at Harborside. They have excellent food, an amazing wait and bar staff, and a great atmosphere!

“Love this place, highly recommended...”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

I have a party for my mother, there were fourteen of us. We came in early for drinks, and were so happy that the bar tender was dressed so nice. The drinks were very reasonable, and the bar tender was very entertaining. They brought us in to our table and we all ended up getting different things. It was excellent, the servers were sooo pleasant and it was nice to see older people working there not a bunch of kids. The sizzler steak was fantastic, and my husband enjoyed the prime rib. We had the best homemade cheesecake I have ever had after dinner. Well done great experience.
