“Smoking Permitted”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We went on the bay cruise offered by Harrison's Landing. Didn't see much as boat crawled around the harbour for an hour.

Afterwards we were going to have dinner. My wife's appetite was spoiled by the smoking patron's even though the server advised us that smoking was not supposed to be permitted. Our garlic and cream cheese appetizer didn't taste right, so we finished our beer and went elsewhere.

“Great for outdoor dining”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have eaten here several times and while I enjoy it mostly for the atmosphere, I would say the food and service are average. We've run in to issues with being out of menu items, taking an excessively long time when they didn't seem that busy, etc. But we go there because the food is pretty decent and to hang out and socialize and have a few drinks too so it fits the bill well for what we want and we will return for that reason.

“Awesome setting with excellent seafood”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

I love going to this place to eat on the water. I get my usual fish sandwich with red snapper. The bread the sandwich is on is excellent.

“So So”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Took some friends from out of town here. Food was pretty average, nothing fantastic, and definately not for the cost. You pay for the atmosphere, service was pretty good, and the view is nice.
