A friend tipped me off to this place. He said he went there for Sunday brunch and really liked it. My wife and I spend several months in Ponce Inlet and have tried all of the other restaurants, some of which are quite good. Tonight we decided to try something new, The Harbour Village Pub. We followed the instructions for gate access to the community that were helpfully provided in an earlier review and found the pub without any problem.
The pub is decorated in kind of a nautical modern, sports bar motif. We sat at a high top table, although there are booths as well. It was early on a Thursday evening in the off season, and was quiet. We were there in time for the happy hour - $3 house wines and cheaper draft beers.
I ordered Caesar salad and the catch of the day, broiled, which was a snapper. My wife ordered Caesar salad and the fish and chips. Drinks came, salads came and then the main courses came, all right on schedule. My fish was fresh, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. I got a large piece of fish and a large portion of slaw. My wife's fish was haddock and was very good. She said the fries were way overlooked.
This is a casual restaurant that's off the beaten path, and because of the gated entry, I suspect that many people are discouraged. I certainly would have tried it before now if the access was easier. That said, I encourage others to give it a try. The food is good and reasonable, the service is excellent, it's clean and well managed. Oh, and they have a British beer on draft.
