The menu options were excellent. Every dish served to our table was generous and well presented along with being delicious. The Lobster and Shrimp Benedict was delightful. Be sure to save room for pie!

Surprisingly busy for a Saturday night the Harbour offered a fair selection of true home cooked meals at reasonable prices. Not gourmet but large hearty portions. The service was basic but adequate and relatively speedy. .

My wife, parents and I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast; the eggs Benedict specials were amazing and the coffee was topped up frequently. The Harbour Diner is a Hamilton treasure.
