Harbor Fish and Chips
Harbor Fish and Chips is a family-operated spot which is known for its good food rather than the fancy decor or fine dining amenities. But, if you are looking to relax on the Oceanside docks and munch on fish or chowder, then this venue is your place. Pictures of early fishermen, along with their catch, line the walls. Most guests prefer to dine on the outdoor picnic tables. The simple menu offers long-time seafood favorites. Be sure to try the Clam Chowder. Better yet, consider the Sampler Plate, which offers fish, shrimp, coleslaw, fries and chowder.
I've been hearing about HF&C so I decided to go. I ordered the large F&C then waited 15 minutes which was Ok (the place was not busy). It arrived and there was a lot of fried stuff on the plate. The fries were the highlight. the fish was a little hard to find in the coating that was overcooked in old greasy oil. The fish - I'm really not sure what kind it might have been.
I won't be returning for the fish although I heard their clam chowder is worth a try.
the very first time i had their clam chowder i was forced and im glad i was because they have the best clam chowder that anyone could ever have. ive been to many other resturants to find clam chowder that compairs and no one can top harbor fish and chips
Great location... Sitting outside eating the meal is the way to go. The meal itself was decent, but not stellar. It seemed a bit overpriced for the portions, too. The clam chowder was excellent though.
Great Place for family. I went with my wife and 8 months old and ordered the take out around 5pm, then sat on the benches next to the restaurant to enjoy a wonderful fish and chips while taking in the beautiful sunset.
Note: Location of restaurant is actually at the end of Carlsbad Village Drive, not on Harbor Drive. It is right down the street from Carlsbad Inn.
