My family and I have been enjoying lunches and dinners here for many years and we expect to continue to do so as long as the quality and service remain at such high levels.

Hard to find in the harbor, but worth looking for. Great salmon and steaks. Live piano player in background. BBQ cooking can be observed thru large glass area.
We are local so this is a frequent visit for us.

Harbor Grill's bouillabaisse is simply not a bouillabaisse. It is a fish or seafood soup and definitely not of the best I have tasted. How it can be called a bouillabaisse is beyond me. The place, however, is very pleasant and the location excellent.

Went to Harbor Grill for dinner while at a conference. It was recommended by the hotel and it was a great choice. There was plenty of fresh fish options, as well as meat options for those who prefer land creatures. Best of all is the many choices of Martinis. I tried the Pinapolitan, which is a cosmo with the additional of pineapple juice. It was very delicious - and you could not stop at just one! One of the people i my party had the chocolate cake for dessert and really liked it - but I was stuffed. The portions are pretty large!
