We love Harbor House- we make it our fist stop off the plane and before going to Costco. The beer schooners are icy cold and very fun. So cold you can get ice in your beer. The fish of the day is always good in a number of offerings. They have great burgers for those who don't want the fish. If you have a child who needs a high chair get a table on the outside- as the servers never use that isle, but serve from the inside divider. Birds in this open air restaurant know high chair means food on the floor - they flock. Which was fun for our granddaughter. It is fun to watch the boats come back in and see what flag they fly for the type of fish the caught.

Excellent restaurant and very casual. The food is so good. Great management and very attentive servers. The calamari is out of this world and the burgers are SO good. We go there regularly.

It's the real thing when it comes to fresh fish as the vessels are visible . The food has always been great and the view of the harbor is always a treat. I agree that the birds are petty..

By the time we finished the whale watch with Captain Zodiac we were ready to eat and drink. A very cold beer served by a waitress who hustled was just the ticket. The fried calamari was average but the location and beer and view made for good memories. Hard to complain when you're warm on the Big Island and its' ten (10) degrees back in Oklahoma.

We like this place. They do a great battered fish sandwich. Big $5 schooner beers.
But the owner needs to get the birds and flies under control they always disturb your meal.
Staff is ok. Could be more friendly. But the location is great right by the marina, view of the harbor.
