We are visited the upland and decided to go to the Harbor Queen for dinner. The service was average nothing special. The menu prices have risen considerbly since our last visit. The portion appeared to be smaller and the food not quite as good. Happy hour drinks were well priced. We have been dining at this restaurant for several years... More
