You don’t have to travel all the way to the beach to enjoy a waterfront dining experience – Harborside Restaurant on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes is just what you need.
This lakeside eatery is located on the beautiful shores of
Lake Shipp in Winter Haven and has been a local favorite for over 20 years.
They have a spacious dock area which gives customers the opportunity to arrive
via car, bike, boat, Jet Ski or sea plane.
Regardless of your transportation,
you will definitely feel the ambiance of sun and sails as soon as you enter
through the doors.
Sticking with their nautical, rustic theme, on one side of the restaurant they have a horseshoe-shaped bar and at the other end is a copper-plated raw bar. If the rustic tiles, brushed copper and gray walls inside the restaurant doesn’t put you in the mood for seafood, the outdoor patio surely will. Sit outside on the deck and enjoy the iconic Florida sunshine and the breathtaking views of Winter Haven’s Chain of Lakes.
While Harborside offers steak and pasta, they are known for fresh seafood dishes during lunch and dinner.
Hot and Cold Appetizers
Harborside’s starters will have you hooked before you get
the chance to view the entrees. With options like lobster tail and fried gator
bites, Bang Bang Shrimp, and seared ahi tuna you won’t second guess whether you
really need an appetizer or not. Check out their raw oyster bar – you have the
options of eating them raw, steamed, or grilled.
Lunch and Dinner Dishes
For the main course, entrees include Atlantic salmon, gulf grouper and mahi mahi, all cut in
house daily. Crazy about crustaceans? Harborside’s snow crab legs are served
dusted with Old Bay seasoning and drawn butter for your dipping pleasure.
We recommend trying “The” Harborside Fish Sandwich. The white fish filet itself is as big as the plate it’s served on. For the
non-seafood lovers, their steak, baby back ribs or pasta won’t disappoint.
