Food and service are exceptional. Seafood jambalaya, stuffed sole, and grilled shrimp is what our table partook of and it was all very good. Higher up on the price scale ($20+) than your other local fish and chips stop, but well worth a special night out!

Food was excellent - from the salad to crab cakes to seafood brochette - everything was perfectly cooked. The service was great, and the view glorious. Absolutely recommend!

I think the beauty of Harbor Hut is you can sit outside and enjoy the seagulls and views of Morro Rock and surrounding marina and eat great fish and clam chowder. The clam strips are a favorite but this day they were rubbery and overcooked. The staff must have been new and overwhelmed as it took over thirty minutes to... More

This restaurant is 50%+ of the reason why I go to Morro Bay as often as I can. Been going for over 30 years starting as a kid during Labor Day yearly family vacations and introduced my husband to it years ago and it has never disappointed! Food, ambiance and service have been 5+ stars always. And nothing changed with... More

We were here on a Friday evening, and it was lovely. It was quieter than most of the other places we looked into, and the food was excellent. Mom had the fish and chips and loved that the fish was big pieces. I had the local sea bass special - delicious! Service was excellent, too.

This restaurant was recommended by the Hotel at which we stayed. We are so glad we went here. The service was outstanding by Cindi, who has worked here quite a while. She was fun, knowledgeable and knew exactly how to provide great service while leaving us to enjoy our meal. We both had seafood dishes that were excellent. Prices were... More

It was fun eating at the Harbor Hut. We had visited back in the 70's and it was fun returning. The food was excellent and the service was great.

Had the fish tacos. Liked that they were fresh tortillas and lightly breaded fish. Why would they charge you for tartar sauce? Kids had chicken strips and I had them rate them and they rated them a "3". Didn't wait long. My son would rather no olives on the fish taco.
