This place has wonderful waterfront dining. We were there on a sunny, warm day and could not have had a better experience. It's casual, kinda "beachy", and comfortable. The menu was typical bar food but was prepared perfectly. Friendly service put the icing on the...More

Everyone has a different twist on their crab cakes and we found Harbor Shack's selection to be a bit on the spicy side which overwhelms the subtle, quiet flavor of crabmeat. Service was a bit unorganized, very casual.

I saw dogs out on the dock but didn't see any on the deck. I didn't see any signs. But then they didn't have signs up for smoking and you weren't allowed. You had to walk out towards the front. Sorry wish I was more helpful.
