Harley Gray hit it out of the park. My wife and I made same-day reservations for our date night and we were completely satisfied with our experience there. The food was exceptional, the service was friendly and efficient, and the ambiance was cozy and warm.

We come here once a year or so for lobster night and decided to taste test the other food on the menu. The food was a big disappointment. My husband and I could not forced ourselves to finish half of each dish. Service was ok. The waitress keeps touching us, I know she was being friendly but she did it too many times. Would not recommend.

I enjoy going to Harley Gray. The service and food is always top notch. They feature weekly specials and the pricing for restaurant week was too good to pass up. Sunday brunch and happy hour attendance is a must! You will not be disappointed!

The overall experience was extremely good on my visit. The food was extremely good and was at a reasonable price point. The only downside was the service we were provided. The service could have been better.

We went to Harley Gray Kitchen for prime rib night (Friday) - the price is good but the cuts all came out more well done than we had wanted. They could also use more horseradish in their sauce since it was really light on the horseradish ...

Since the demise of the Boat House on Harbor Island, we had been hoping to try Harley Gray, their sister location. The lobster was great, service what we were used to at the Boat House and a thoroughly pleasant location in Mission HIlls. We'll be back for the prime rib next.

Prime rib special was great! Also ordered a couple of side orders. Both were excellent. Only glitch was desert( apple pie) — took a long time to prepare (?) and served.
Overall experience was outstanding!

We LOVED this restaurant! Went early Sunday evening and so it was not yet busy. Restaurant has a garage-type door that opens onto the sidewalk so people watching was fun, and there was a nice breeze to enjoy. Staff are super fun. Every menu item we tried was absolutely delicious. I was delighted to see pork schnitzel on the menu - perfectly breaded and fried with terrific brown onion gravy and potatoes.
Harley Gray has wonderful daily specials and fabulous happy hour cocktail prices - even on the weekend. Sangria was the best I've ever had. Be sure to see the photos that give you the origins of the restaurant name! We will all be back again and again. It's a Passport Dining restaurant too.

Your weekly specials are what keep us coming back, especially the live Maine lobster and the prime rib. I also love that you can order a double cocktail for three dollars more. The service is relaxed and friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant and informal.

Loved the whole Maine lobster, superb value. Yummy Bellini. The rice was boring. My friend wears a hearing aid and doesn’t hear well in restaurants. We were seated in the best place for his ability to hear. The noise level was high, as it is in most restaurants anymore. I will definitely go back again. The wait staff were excellent.

It was very hot inside, despite that we we’re sitting next to the open patio. Server was polite but hard to get refills on any drinks. Coffee grounds were in both our coffee cups but we didn’t bother asking for new ones in fear we’d never get the coffee back. About 3 people came to deliver our food (there were 4 of us) and they still forgot a side of eggs and we asked for salsa 3 times. Disappointed. May go back when the weather is cooler.

We were patrons of the Boat House, but when it closed, we tried the Thursday lobster dinner special at their sister restaurant. The lobster was delicious, but the ambience doesn’t compare to overlooking the bay. This restaurant is located in the residential area of Mission Hills, so there’s no view. Our server, Tara, was terrific and so was the food. Would love it if they added corn on the cob to make the meal a little more substantial. We’ll be back on Thursday’s while we’re here for the summer.

Great place for Sunday brunch. The open concept is great. It's a littl tight in there, but that's ok. I was a little out off by all the dogs, but I will definitely go back.

Went for Friday Prime Rib Special for $13.99 we expected a small thin piece of meat, but were pleasantly surprised to see a generous size of perfectly cooked prime rib. Can't wait to go back.

Prawns was on the menu but server said they no longer have them. Paid my bill with cash. Server never brought my change back to me. Very presumptuous of him to think that all the change was his tip. Bad vibe from the server.

Went for fathers day dinner. Fried chicken (special that day) tasted like it was made long ago and kept warm. Short ribs were good portions, and tasted pretty good. Calamari appetizers were rubbery and chewy, as if they were overcooked or old. We were disappointed given the great reviews they get on yelp.

Harley Gray always has excellent food. Their cuisine is basically nouveau-Americana. This Father's Day brunch was really good. I had the avocado toast and my husband had the chilaquiles. The service was fantastic and we had a nice conversation with the couple next to us.
