Loved the Farmer's Vegetable plate! The Key Lime pie was also a great choice.

The hostess did not greet people walking in and was not very friendly. Not sure if she was having a bad day, but this is the first impression people get in a restaurant. Other than that, the rest of the staff and the food was excellent. The view is spectacular.

The Peel & Eat shrimp was very good. The Bisque soup was very good as well. I would not recommend the Caesar salad with shrimp. The Caesar was very bland. They do pour a very good drink and our server was great. The atmosphere is nice with a cool view out to the water.

Food was absolutely delicious except the she crab soup was overloaded with onions which ruined the flavor. Our waitress was more interested in talking to friends at another table than serving us. The restaurant was within walking distance of where we were staying so it was very convenient. The prices were quite high so we only ate one meal here

Unattentive waitress. My food came out and looked/tasted like it had been sitting on a warming plate for a while.
Our reservations were at 8:30pm and we were seated near the the outdoor eating area. Evidently there had been an event in the space and they were cleaning up. The cleaning supplies they were using to mop the floors was very pungent and made for a very unsavory dinner.
I have eaten there several times and it was always good. I will think twice before going back

Chip was awesome!!! Great recommendations and fun conversation with him. Dinner was delicious - salmon and shrimp and grits. Grilled shrimp appetizer was some of the best we have had in a long time. Chip was attentive and hard working and your cook staff was top notch! We will be back soon!

The food was ok but the poor service ruined our experience. Our server was very pleasant but far too busy. Our wine arrived after the food, only once we had reminded the server. One person’s drink arrived and we had a further wait for the other one! Definitely not worth the money.

Food was barely ok. Service was horrible. Server needed to be reminded to give our kids their desert ice cream sandwich. Filled our 1/2 full glasses of Rosé and charged us full price. Gave us bill before asking if we wanted desert.

We have had better experiences with Harbor Fish House. We are a local family and this is our fourth Christmas Day dinner. The Seafood tower was not on the menu and the Burger was gone as well. Our appetizers and entrees arrived at the same time. Our server seemed new and very distracted. She passed our table several times before she finally spoke to us. My husband had to go ask who our server was.
Things were just a little off this time but we plan to come back next year. Hopefully, our next experience will be more like our first experience.

My husband and I were visiting Charleston from Florida and knew there wouldn't be a lot of restaurants open on Christmas day. This one was so we made reservations. We figured there would be a limited menu and weren't put off by this. We were happy to see prime rib was on the menu so we both ordered it. Prime Rib was not good. Mine was small and extremely fatty even for a prime rib and my husbands was very grizzly. Mashed potatoes were good but we weren't given much. Vegetables were some carrot concoction. Strange looking but edible. After finishing our meal, we were still hungry so shared an apple tart for dessert. It was like having a toaster streudel from the frozen section in a grocery store! I'm hoping that due to this being Christmas it may not represent how the restaurant usually is food wise but for the price we paid we expected better and were both disappointed.

For the price I’d recommend many other restaurants. My husband’s meal didn’t come out until we were done with ours and no one apologized. We also requested a table w a high chair in our reservation and there wasn’t much room to fit it at our table while there were 5-6 bigger tables available.

Staying at Harborview and decided to try this place out. I had a very pleasant server and she checked on me often. I really could not see the view from my table, but the restaurant itself is very pretty.

I ordered fried green tomatoes for my starter and topped it off with peel and eat shrimp. Both were good. The key lime pie was the best part of the meal.

The service we experienced was wonderful but the food was just so terrible. From the mushy fried green tomatoes to peel & eat shrimp that was slimy & far from fresh. We heard great things and were so disappointed.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner and the wait staff were friendly and attentive, even though they were away from their families. The food was fabulous, thanks Haywood and Trevor, and the bourbon pecan cocktail was a desert in itself.

We had dinner reservations for Thanksgiving and sat down at the table at 530pm. They were already out of many of the dinner choices. Our meals were served almost two hours after we ordered. The kids were hungry but the restaurant didn’t even have bread to hold them over. The prime rib was mostly fat and undercooked. The service team seemed oblivious that anything was not going well and made no attempt to apologize or correct the situation.

Nice water views, good location. Staff was nice, friendly and helpful. But the food was very average at best. We had Thanksgiving dinner there and the turkey dinner was just "meh" served luke warm, nothing on my plate was hot, but we waited so long for our food to come out, I just let it go... kid's pizza was barely edible. The two others at our table had fish and said it was good. I will not be going back.
