Based on the reviews I was not going to give the place a try. We are staying at Southseas Plantation and dinner choices are limited. I'm so glad we came here. The Yucca fries were really good and the aioli it came with was amazing. I had the Steak Frites, it was so tender and cooked perfect. It is the... More

Our waiter was wonderful and knowledgeable! The servings were large and tasty. The wine menu was average. The restaurant is located on the South Seas Resort and takes some liberties with opening for breakfast and dinner but not lunch. I was a little upset about this when I wanted to eat lunch here BUT dinner was quite good. It was... More

Fine Dining with lots of table attention. Fresh Seafood, great pasta dishes. Nice interior and view of the marina. Flatbreads and special butter were a treat prior to dinner.

Stayed at South Seas Resort for 5 nights. Ate at Harborside for 2 dinners and 3 breakfast. So awesome! The Jerk Pork dinner was extra spicy yummy! Can't wait to visit again! Happy Hour from 5-7 good deal on appitizers and drinks!

The food is good here. No complaints. And, it is convenient if you are staying at the resort. But the prices are ridiculous - perhaps 1.5-2x what is justified. This restaurant is part of the South Seas Plantation Resort. You are much better off leaving the resort and eating at a nearby establishment.

I have been coming to South Seas for over 10 years now and we had come to reserve our visits to Harborside for the special occasions because the food and atmosphere really was wonderful. In July we frequented Harborside three times. It would have been more had it not been so disappointing. The good: fantastic fish spread; beautiful bar and... More

This is your typical "inside the resort restaurant", Average and Overpriced. My Wife had a Seafood type Soup with shrimp, scallops, etc. She said it was good. I had the "Skirt Steak", it was hard and chewy not cooked as I requested. Wine list is decent so that is a plus. Service is ok but our waiter would go "MIA"... More

There are a couple restaurants to choose from at the South Seas Island Resort. The Harborside Bar & Grill ended up being our "go to" restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was very good!

We looked forward to a fine dining experience but were disappointed in the limited menu. Service was very good though. It was an expensive restaurant.
