The Harbor Grill Restaurant Review

: Locals keep coming back to The Harbor Grill for several reasons: the fresh seafood, the strong cocktails, the gregarious atmosphere and the view of the harbor. Sparkling blue Dana Point Harbor sits right outside the window, while you order up strong house-made cocktails like the fresh grapefruit juice martini. To pair with the drinks, try the sweet and savory scallops with citrus-soy glaze. Other winners are the tangy sea bass ceviche and barbecued shrimp. Soups, salads, tacos and burgers make an appearance on the menu, but most guests stick to the mesquite-grilled seafood entrées. We enjoy a smoky and tender Chilean sea bass with a savory tomato broth. Filet mignon is tender, and the just-grilled lobster tail has a surprising smoky taste. A three-course prix-fixe menu is offered at dinner and is a pretty good deal for the big portion sizes. Desserts include the seasonal fruit cobbler, creamy carrot cake and civilized mocha mud pie. Sunday brunch offers Belgian waffles, several variations on eggs Benedict and a number of seafood omelets. Most of the offerings on the wine list are reasonably priced, although there are a few expensive, high-end labels available should you wish to splurge.
