    I have mixed emotions about my dining experience at this restaurant last night. I hesitate to give it a bad review because much about it was very good. On the other hand, some things were just terrible. For an upscale venue that purports to offer gourmet dining, there’s no excuse. I’ll start with the good. The restaurant is the only waterfront venue in Lewes with fine dining. Its location on the canal provides interior and exterior seating with a closeup view of passing watercraft, which creates a charming nautical vibe. The staff seems sincerely friendly, which can be hard to find in a busy resort town. Tables are well spaced to allow casual conversation without shouting even though the restaurant was full. Service was attentive without being intrusive and our waiter responded earnestly to questions about the menu. Now for the bad. We ordered the shrimp toast to split as an appetizer. Although the portion was fine, it arrived burnt to the point of being inedible. Frankly, the dish shouldn’t have left the kitchen in that condition and the fact that our waiter served it with a smile was insulting. When he came back to check on our progress I bluntly told him it was terrible. He immediately apologized and said there would be no charge, but surprisingly didn’t offer to substitute another dish. For the main course, my wife ordered the fish special, a triple tail, and I ordered the glazed brisket based upon our waiter’s glowing endorsement. Her fish was moist and delicious, being perfectly cooked. However, its delicate flavor was overshadowed by the red curry lentil stew it was floating on in the dish. My brisket was a total disappointment. The three thick slices were charred on the ends and dry. A light slather of salty gravy couldn’t save it. The sides consisted of green beans, which were excellent, and a good slice of potatoes au gratin, also a bit on the dry side but still tasty. When our check arrived, the GM graciously comp’d my meal, but alas the damage was done.

    Another wonderful meal at The Harbor Restaurant. Shrimp toast a must...as usual. My Husbands duck was superb in every way. Fresh lobster tail flown in that day was "out of this world"!! Drew our waiter could not have been more pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable of the magnificent menu! Last but certainly not least...compliments to the Chef for an inventive and perfectly executed cuisine. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    I wish we hadn’t waited so long to try this restaurant! This was the best dinner we’ve had out in quite some time. We ordered the Shrimp Tagliatelle and Salmon entree and both were fantastic. Great selection of wines and drinks. Service was great! Dessert was delicious. We will definitely return soon and hopefully we will get to try one of their special wine dinners too!

    Beautiful setting along the Canal in Lewes. We were greeted at the door and led to our table right away. It was a Sunday evening so there wasn't much of a crowd. It was our anniversary and the Hostess wished us a Happy Anniversary. We were later given a complimentary Champagne. Cocktails were good. Server was very competent and nice. The appetizer was nice sized but lacked flavor. Their version of a wedge salad is different but tasty. My wife had the Mahi Mahi which she enjoyed. I had the Beef Brisket which was also tasty but a little tough. Creme Brule and Profiteroles for dessert. As it was our first time there, the server gave us a tour of the outside patio which would be gorgeous in warmer weather. We will be back

    Was looking forward to going here. Service was excellent. The setting was very nice. The food was only ok. My bread pudding was burnt. Never should have been served. I sent that back. Risotto was just ok. One or two large mushrooms but seemed just ok. I can and do better at home. Dessert was ok. Berries on the cake. There were two. Ok, fits the definition but that’s the whole dinner. I’ll. Try it again. I’ll look forward to it. But if that’s as good as it gets. There are several better restaurants in the area. But I will hold onto hope. I really want to like it a lot more. Simply not impressed at all.

    Most of our food was spectacular. The one main course was not but they quickly made it right. I had the octopus fritter as a starter it was one of the best things I have ever eaten. My mother had the halibut special and she liked the sauce so much that she asked Drew our server for some more. It was my mom birthday so it made it a successful experience

    Our entire Anniversary dining experience at Harbour was outstanding. Food and service were both superb. Ceviche and crab dip appetizers were well-advanced beyond the typical local restaurant preparations. Crab-stuffed flounder entree was exceptional. Our waiter, Tom, was very attentive and engaged, without being overbearing. Also, met new friends in this intimate dining space.

    One of our favorite restaurants but dinner last night fell a little short. The appetizers (pate and ceviche) were both excellent. The lamb shank was also great. Unfortunately the scallop entree consisted of small scallops that were only seared on one side and the sweet potato latke that came with it was charred black on the bottom. Surprised that they actually put it on the plate.

    The entire experience was excellent from arrival to departure. You’re surrounded by a warm and relaxed decor, beautiful views and friendly people. Your food choices will be unique yet comfortably familiar ingredients paired to created a delicious meal. Our table enjoyed a variety of starters, the crab dip was hands down the crowd fav. The duck and goat cheese salad is creamy and savory. The steak OMG, cooked to perfection. Scallops fresh and tender. So Put it on the list and make a reservation.

    We’ve been here several times and have loved it every time. Last night things seemed to be only so-so. Our server was excellent and we had a table right next to the decorated Christmas tree which was beautiful but the food was underwhelming this visit. Under seasoned dishes from the soup to the mussels to the specials of the night. Dinner was served warm at best and was cold before we finished. Cocktails, dessert, and French pressed coffee at the end of our meal were all great… just wish our food had the usual amazing flair we have experienced in the past. We’ll be back for sure but last night wasn’t our best experience- hoping it was just an “off night” for the kitchen.

    Our experience at Harbor was excellent. Four of went for our weekly supper club and had a great table overlooking the canal. Drew was our server and provided a wonderful experience. He was knowledgeable and helpful with questions on the menu. Everyone’s meal met or exceeded expectations. The atmosphere is casual upscale but very welcoming. We will be back.
