I met my grandson at the beautiful Harbor Mist on a cold weekday this week. The salads were wonderful. Absolutely fresh and inviting with beautiful large vegetables. I also had a burger done to perfection and the steak fries were extremely crispy. The best I have ever had. Service was perfection and the waiters never interrupted, which is a pet peeve of mine. I hadn’t been here in a while and am so happy that the restaurant still is here amongst all the Covid closings. I will not hesitate to go again. And although the view from the beautiful, cozy downstairs room is not the same as upstairs, the drive by the water is gorgeous. And so pleasant to be there on a January day without crowds.

We had a lovely, safe NYE in a Harbor Mist igloo. Service was outstanding, with an incredibly kind staff. Food was delicious and abundant. We even were able to bring our dog, since it was an outdoor igloo. We are grateful that, during this pandemic, Harbor Mist gave us a way to safely celebrate New Year’s Eve!

Great food and great service. My wife and I are so glad the Harbor Mist was open on Christmas Day. We have dined here before, and we never leave the place disappointed.

Our extended family of 11 had an excellent meal with attentive service on Christmas Day. Despite our large party, the staff accommodated our request for a table with a view and seated us by the window on the second floor. Everyone in our party thought the food was excellent, in particular the pumpkin ravioli with cranberries from the specials menu.

Wait staff was wonderful, we sat in an outdoor heated igloo despite cold and windy weather, waiters were amazing and attentive. HOWEVER, We were there celebrating a birthday, I called the day before and requested a special dessert be brought at the end of our meal. The woman I spoke to was very nice, read the dessert menu and I chose a cannoli then asked if I needed to remind wait staff upon our arrival. I was assured I didn't and they would surprise my son with that special birthday dessert. Well, nothing was brought; I am totally disappointed. I called next day to express my disappointment, was told a manager would call to respond yet have not received call

One of the few places that actually honored the reservation. Everyone was very nice and the restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas with a touch of Chanukah . It was our Anniversary and we wanted somewhere different than our usual places. The décor and the atmosphere fit that bill. Very homey and yet elegant. The food was delicious.

We dined in the igloo outdoors. It was exceptional! Because of Covid and my husband's compromised immune system, we haven't dined out in 18 months. It was an adventure that we will repeat!

This is a hard review to write. We had last minute plans, so needed a reservation for 4 prime time on a Saturday. Harbor Mist was available. I can tell you why, it was OK. The service was attentive, food came on time. Salads were shared and came quickly. They were uninspiring. One of our party ordered the Linguini and clams in white sauce. This is a standard dish,,,and we have had decent versions anywhere from fine dining establishments to pizza parlors. This version was atrocious. Pasta in water with rubbery clams, zero taste, no seasoning. OTOH another had the pork chop with cherry peppers and raved about it. The salmon and chicken preparations were fine, again, uninspiring. This was not a bad experience, just...not a good one.

We got there early and was seated right away! The drinks were strong and sent it back. Food was delicious but service was very poor. Not enough help.
Will possibly go back.

Harbor Mist features an outstanding menu, and we will definitely return again in the future. The service here is excellent. Fish is always an excellent choice; on this occasion I had the sesame crusted yellowfin tuna entree, served rare and done to a T. We dined on a Tuesday with a friend at an outside table, warmed by a propane heater that was essential on this cool October evening. Give Harbor Mist a try - you won't be disappointed!
