Really delicious, speedy service and right on the Harbor. Try the fish tacos. I would order 1 first since they are so big, and if you're hungry for more when you're done, order another one. You probably will fill up on just one. The clam strips were also delicious. Nice and soft, not chewy. You can choose to eat inside,... More

We knew from the crowd outside this would be a good stop. We weren't disappointed. We chose a combo of fish and shrimp, It came with a huge piece of battered fish and an equally sized shrimp, fries, chowder and coleslaw ! All were generous servings. Everything was very tasty. The coleslaw was outstanding. The receipe was one made by... More

Rustic and crowded - absolutely worth a visit for delicious food. We have tried about every item on the menu here and it is traditional, but scrumptious fare! LOVE the fish and chips. Hamburgers, salads, soups, and cole slaw are also yummy. You can sit by the water on old picnic tables and watch the sea lions. Super fun, beachy... More

The fish and chips are hot, moist, tender, flaky, and delicious! Everything you want in a fish fry. We visit every time we are in Oceanside. We love to eat outdoors along the harbor. Watch out, the seagulls know the food is great, too and want to join you to share your lunch.

Located on the Marina at Oceanside Harbor Village, it is an excellent place for lunch... Very popular, very busy, but order placed, freshly prepared, and delivered. Family business since 1969 and great fish n chips.

The food was pretty good and the servers were very nice and helpful. Fish was cooked well. Enjoyed the coleslaw and fries. The clam chowder I really like, needed a little salt and pepper but would definitely get it again.

My family has been visiting Harbor Fish and Chips for many years. Great for lunch on a sunny day! The food is in no way a healthy choice, but great for an occasional splurge. Crispy fish, mild and delicious. Not at all fishy. Nothing fancy here. If you are looking for that this probably isn't for you. Worth a trip... More

Mostly fish and chips but they also have Hawaiian burger which is excellent. View of harbor at sunset - stunning! This is not a fancy place which is why I liked it.
