Seafood
Harbor Seafood & Steak Co. opened in August 2014 and is located on the corner of 2100 South & 2300 East in Sugar House. Since then, Chef Justin Jacobsen has been serving quality interpretations of classic dishes with the highest level of ingredients.

We wanted to create a neighborhood restaurant that gives our guests a sense of home. Our menu is based on simple comfort food, where the taste and quality stands for what we believe in. Founded by Randall Curtis & Taylor Jacobsen, our goal was simple: give our guests not only the freshest seafood and wagyu steaks but also serve an affordable wine selection and great artisan cocktails for only $8. And oh yeah, the music is great too.

Have been there several times, food is always consistent and good. Drinks from the bar have been hit or miss. Service has also been a little in consistent, especially from the host staff.

On Valentine's night, service was very confused -- had other tables' appetizers/mains brought to us at least 3 times. But, that's an anomaly -- we've been to Harbor many other times, and the service has always been great.

Valentines Dinner, Set menu, amazing cocktails. Only issue was soup had to be heated because it was barely luke-warm. Chef Justin is a Mastermind Chef. Amazing prime ingredients. Cocktails were fantastic. Ask about their state winning cocktail.

Best Valentines meal ever. Food: superb. Setting & service was outstanding for a booked out occasion.... have been to more expensive places and Valentine’s has always been less than expected due to crowds and kitchen rush.

Harbor is an exception!!

One Star, Zero if I could.

Our 3rd time to Harbor, and sadly, our last. Reserved a booth near the bar two weeks in advance. We show up, they say it was reserved already!?? Really? When I talked to the folks days beforehand to give my card to hold the reservation, there was no problem.... Furthermore, they did not even try to make it right after they could tell we were upset. Pretentious place that will likely fizzle out with other stiff competition if they don't take care of their guests and stop raising prices. Sea Salt and others have come and gone when they got an ego.

Food was pretty tasty, service bad. Hipster cliche waiters, really young and clueless. Pricing was WAY too high and out of nowhere gratuity was included which added in an extra $43. $217! Owners need to understand that when you add in gratuity for 2 people beforehand, service can then essentially be terrible, which is what happened. How? Because the server and staff have already been tipped!

Crammed way too many people too close together in the tables. Gratuity should only be added in for 6 or more people, which is standard.

Would not recommend to any friends and again, we won't be back, especially for a Valentines Day dinner. Still trying to figure out why we we spent $217 for a meal there. But never again. Current or Ruth Chris. Heck, McDonald's across the street before I go back to Harbor. Also, I have seen many reviews echoing my words, so I am not alone. Really sad part is we are fine diners for many places, but Harbor has now lost out.

I would recommend to a friend, but not for a prepared menu. We will go back and try it again when we can choose our meal and see how that goes.

My wife had seafood and I had a steak. The food was top notch. Service was great. If you’re looking for something cheap, not the place to go as we were about $180 incl tip and that did not include any alcohol. It was however, in line with other meals of this caliber that I’ve eaten elsewhere.

Just not what we expected for the price. The atmosphere is more a bar atmosphere and the price is fine dining. The tables are very close together. This night, we were seated near the bar and it was loud. The lobster was great but everything else was cold and not as expected. For the price of fine dining, I would have expected the staff to look a little cleaner (jeans and dirty shoes) and the ambiance to be different. I worked 20 years in the hospitality restaurant, so I know I am critical. Just do not see myself going back as we were quite disappointed.

We are from Connecticut and staying at the Hampton a mile away. Found this on a google search. What a great find. The food was delicious and creative. Our waiter Jordan was very attentive and knowledgeable. And the atmosphere was relaxing and so beautiful. We love supporting independent businesses and this one is a gem

However, the noise level is very loud and it is tough to have a conversation across a table.

The food options were very limited and the steak options were poor. If you do not like Wagyu then your out of luck as this restaurant only offer 3 options of Wagyu. Being a Seafood AND Steak restaurant, only having 3 steak options is absurd and should absolutely offer Prime rated or grass fed options in addition. The Artichoke dip appetizer was very sweet and caught us off-guard as we weren't expecting that type of taste, however, it could be likened to the right person. The steak and green beans was undercooked and only "okay". The waiter, Jordan, forgot to write down our appetizer and moments after we ordered he came and asked if we were going to put in an appetizer, not to mention we were his only table. He was obviously under educated on the menu and the ingredients of the dishes as every question I asked him, he simply just agreed with me and repeated the ingredients that I thought were apart of the dishes. I also recommend that they change their chairs or add a back cushion, very uncomfortable. On top of this, as we were watching through the glass into the kitchen, my wife pointed out to me that a cook was smoking his vaporizer right in the middle of cooking and once he made eye contact with her he ran out into the back, knowing he was caught doing something he shouldn't!

For the price point of $140 for the 2 of us, I expected at the very least, a pleasurable experience. Unfortunately it was far from that and we definitely wont be back. Very disappointed.

We were looking for a last minute New Year's Eve dinner and decided to try this restaurant. It was not clear from Open Table that the only menu available was a fixed price $80 dinner. I did not want to go out into the cold to look for another restaurant, so I just resigned myself to the high price. The bill was nearly $350 for 3 people. I paid less for a set of new tires for my car! The food was ok, but the dining room was very cold, they had space heaters running and cold air was blowing through the emergency door where we were seated. The waiter was very nice and accommodating, but I won't come again. The price point is just way too high for the quality of the food. I'll save my $ for something more spectacular.

Started with crab cakes and a cocktail. Crab cakes were excellent. Had house salad, which was large sized, with the house vinegrette that was also tasty. I ad the Norwegian halibut and my sister had the Korean bbq ribs. Both were terrific. Ended the meal with two desserts and French press coffee. Overall a great decadent experience. A hidden gem in Sugarhouse.

This was our fourth Christmas Eve dinner that we had at Harbor, and I think it will be our last.
To start, the hostess was rather rude and condescending when we asked if we could get a different table after she wanted to seat us at a goofy make-shift setup right in front of an emergency only exit door.

The food, which had been so very good in the past, was rather lackluster.

And lastly, the prices have gone up considerably!
We shared one appetizer, we each had our entrees, one person in our party had only one beer with dinner (no wine or cocktails), and we all had dessert.
For comparison, last New Year's Eve, at Finca, we had a five course dinner (that was outstanding), with a different wine with each course, and we paid less that what we did at Harbor.

Our waitress was pleasant, but not really that helpful or attentive as others have been in the past.

Overall, it was a disappointing evening.

With a glass of wine at $15+, entrees at $40+, I think
It was way overpriced for the quality of food. Had a much better experience at Current Seafood and Market Street for half the price. Wine was half the price for the same average wine offerings. We all had seafood and the
Maui Maui was dry as was the special my son ordered.
The clam chowder was the best part of the night. Should have stopped there and saved $150+
