Low key bar with a comfortable vibe. Food was good and the staff were really nice. Great place to stop for a quick bite and a cocktail.

The menu was varied with great sounding choices. We had the salmon, pot roast and I had the lobster special. All 3 meals were outstanding! Prices were a little above average but well worth it. Staff were professional and friendly. We definitely recommend the Harbirside.

Hands down the best breakfast I had on my trip. Thick french bread battered and cooked to perfection, then stuffed with cream cheese and a wild Maine blueberry compote and fresh maple syrup
