Had several broiled seafood dishes, all good,the haddock in particular. Hush puppies are a guilty pleasure, tasty fried cornbread. Liked the corn chowder with oyster crackers. Tastes as good as chowder served at high-end seafood restaurants. The desserts are surprisingly good for a mid-priced restaurant. Get the coconut cake or key lime pie. Staff was very courteous. Overall a good... More

I love the food . . . the jumbo shrimp & oysters were perfectly cooked and you could taste the freshness. You can substitute the slaw for a salad for $1.45 additional and it is well worth it . . . crisp & fresh with homemade blue cheese dressing. The service was wonderful too! Try it the next time you...

The restaurant is nice, well lit and clean. The food arrived really fast which makes you wonder if the items are already precooked or something. I ordered the scallops and shrimp platter, broiled. They managed to overcook the whole thing. I also ordered iced tea and get free refills. The waitress never came back with my refill, but she managed... More

This restaurant was conventienty located across from the hotel. It was buzzing with customers and had a list of specials at the front door. The waitress was funny and helpful with suggestions of the most popular dishes. The shrimp and grits will be my next entree because I definitely will re-visit The Harbor Inn. Clean facility and good smelling restrooms!... More

Loved this restaurant, it was opposite the Candlewood suites where I was staying. I had the Flounder, Scallops and Prawns with Hush puppies, Baked Potato and Coleslaw and it was delicious. Waitress was brilliant and could not do enough to make my stay perfect.

Ram and I love this place, so it's difficult to be unbiased about my review. The first weekend getaway we took together we found the Harbor Inn Seafood in Greenville and it has always held a sort of kitschy sentimental feel for us that will keep us coming back forever. First, there's no illusion here, this is, as the red... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always very good. Love the hushpuppies. Very good. The only time I eat fried seafood is when I come here and indulge in the fried catfish and shrimp. So good. I have not tried their broiled menu yet but have heard other customers say that is also good. Their... More
