Food is very good portions are a little
Smaller than expected. Ambiance is small tables and crowded. If you are near the patio doors you smell cigarette smoke from outside. Service was exceptional.

The seafood is always fresh and cooked perfectly… great raw bar oyster variety . For a casual, dining option Close Harbor has a welcoming comfortable atmosphere with an attentive, friendly staff. The Close family owners are always present assuring customer satisfaction. Certainly high on my list of go to eateries!

Magnolia provided great service, she was very attentive, helpful, and friendly. Drinks were good, NE clam chowder was delicious as always- creamy with plenty of clams, oyster selection was great- probably could've eaten a dozen more. Tuna tartar was a little bit of a miss, the fish was fresh and a decent portion, avocado was fresh and perfectly ripe. However, since the marinade was a bit sweet, it didn't pair as well as I hoped with the sauce. I would suggest getting it without the sauce or on the side instead. Also, I thought the crisps would be more of a chip but they were still a nice crunch factor on top. The swordfish was ok. In our opinion, it could've been done better. The piece of fish was great but not seasoned enough, the jalapeno was barely tasted, and the char looked nice but didn't hit the flavor mark we are used to with a grill. We will still be back but probably won't do the tartar or the swordfish again.

Drinks, food, waitress and ambiance were all great!
I thought the clams casino were delicious but a little pricey.
Oysters and seafood are always sooo fresh!

We had to go to the bar to get our own drinks because they sat waiting on the waitress . The manager had to come over a couple of times because the waitress didn’t return. She would disappear for long stretches of time until it came time for the check and tip to be paid. I don’t normally complain as I was a waitress once, but this was awful. No apologies or acknowledgement. She didn’t even realize she never brought our drinks.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and drinks. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Outdoor seating was comfortable even though the weather was not ideal. Our waitress, Magnolia, made us feel welcome and timed our dinner perfectly. Definitely coming back; we have been searching for a good local seafood restaurant and it looks like we’ve found it.

Always completely satisfied with food and service. I’ve honestly never had a bad meal. The salads and fries,etc are wonderful. Salad is freshly prepared and, thankfully, no iceberg lettuce! But the fish is outstanding! It is a fish market, also. I tried something new this week, the Philly Swordfish on the ciabatta roll. SO GOOD! This will make my decision harder in the future. I love this place so much, we even ate outside in the winter, during the bad part of COVID, IN 45° weather and thanks to the elaborate heating system, a coat and blanket, it was quite comfortable. I highly recommend Close Harbour.

Oysters on half shell, baked stuffed lobster, jambalaya and flounder Milanese were all great. Servers friendly and professional with everything served in a timely manner.

First time eating outdoors..was very loud and the table was was metal wire, so drinks kept dripping on us below. Food is good and prices are good. I only wish the clams casino were bigger. :-)

We have eaten here many times both in person and takeout. We have never had a bad meal. Took advantage of Restaurant Week prix fix menu and had a wonderful meal again. Good size portions - I had to bring some home.

Food was very good other than salad dressing and undercooked burger. Lobster and jambalaya was excellent. Fish and chips-loves the breading. Beware lobster dinner is $52 and not $32 as shown on menu. Also, they said soft drinks had free refills and we were charged for our refills.

We enjoyed having a valentines dinner together, and having a staff that was attentive to our needs. At times a door would get left open, allowing the frigid temperatures from outside to enter the dining area. But everything else was fantastic.

I included special requests, I took my husband out to celebrate his promotion, and they totally ignored my requests. So that was frustrating. And our reservation was for 745, and by 830 we felt like we were getting rushed out.
