My wife and I found this place about 9 years ago while visiting in the fall. It was full on a rainy Saturday afternoon, with live music and college football on the TV. Above anything else, you must try an Orange Crush, the official drink of OC and this is where it was invented.

We ate here on Friday night. Husband had the blackened scallops and I had the coconut shrimp and seafood bisque. We enjoyed the $5 orange crushes with our meals. Waitress was friendly, service and food were good. Lot's of choices on the menu. Restaurant patrons seemed happy. We will be back on our next trip>

We are now big fans of the infamous Orange Crush!! This bar is hopping and people have a great time there. We had a late dinner and really enjoyed everything. Even though it was off season they were open late for food unlike other spots close by

Now that the summer is over my wife and I can get back to old reliable restaurants which are full of tourists during the season. We went to the Harborside again last night and while it is little more than a fishing type cabin the food is always good with some very fresh fish. I had a cajun mahi mahi... More

Checked out their weekend specials online and found exactly what I wanted. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found out that ALL of their dinners are half price on Sunday. Double score! I had a seafood pasta dish with mussels, scallops, shrimp, and crab tossed with linguine in spicy marinara sauce. And although I love it hot, it... More

Food is good, nothing special or unique. Can be sweltering in the summer. The orange crushes help cool you down.

Soft shell crab was excellent. Seafood is very fresh. Wait staff was very pleasant. We were there for an early lunch and really enjoyed the setting and watching the boats along the dock.
