Always good food and nice seating outside on the patio. We tried the "squid" burger and it was pretty good. We always have lunch here when at the coast area.

We had a wonderful "birthday" lunch for my husband. Had a great Irish Coffee and shrimp cocktail. My husband had a shrimp and crab croissant. They were kind enough to bring a complimentary piece of cheesecake to celebrate. Good service and view.

Had some great appetizers during the visit to Morro Bay in the late afternoon. View outside on the patio of the ocean as well as seals playing in the water. Had the shrimp cocktail and the garlic fries. Very tasty fries that leave you with the ability to fight vampires afterwards. The shrimp cocktail was excellent and good size portion... More

Sunset and darkness come early in the winter. Shouldn't these waterside restaurants drop their prices 50% when the view has disappeared? Why am I overpaying for spotty service, Denny's quality food, and a run down interior that looks (and smells) like it did in 1970? Another Morro Bay tourist trap.

One of my favorite restaurants in Morro Bay, great service and ambience. Fresh fish and a great view of Morro Bay makes this a winner. They even have a hut outside the main dining room which serves great fish and chips. A super place to enjoy after strolling out to the rock and you want to enjoy eating outside. Recommend!

Food and service are exceptional. Seafood jambalaya, stuffed sole, and grilled shrimp is what our table partook of and it was all very good. Higher up on the price scale ($20+) than your other local fish and chips stop, but well worth a special night out!

Food was excellent - from the salad to crab cakes to seafood brochette - everything was perfectly cooked. The service was great, and the view glorious. Absolutely recommend!

I think the beauty of Harbor Hut is you can sit outside and enjoy the seagulls and views of Morro Rock and surrounding marina and eat great fish and clam chowder. The clam strips are a favorite but this day they were rubbery and overcooked. The staff must have been new and overwhelmed as it took over thirty minutes to... More
