A well-organized event was planned by Leo and Lisa of the Harbour Grille. For a recent Celebration of Life for our daughter, we contacted Leo concerning our desire to offer a lunch buffet for our friends and family who attended the morning service. Lisa provided...the guidance and the organization for a group of 65+ who attended. Several weeks prior to the event, I contacted Lisa many times with questions concerning the seating, menu, and other related items. Every single contact was handled by her in a professional and also helpful manner. The preparation and presentation of the selected foods, and the efficiency of the wait staff was absolutely wonderful on the day of the event. Throughout the luncheon, Sandy our head waitress, remained on top of everything. She touched base with me several times to check timing for several items to be presented during the lunch. Individual requests were met promptly and efficiently. Thank you all for a beautifully coordinated event, not only for ourselves, but also for the daughter who we were honoring. MA & SkipMore

We dined here yesterday for the first time. The food was quite good and the service as friendly as can be. I enjoyed the Fish and chips and the Maryland Crab soup and both dishes were delicious. The food might have been a bit warmer...but that may be an issue with our table to ten and the kitchen wait times. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Crab platter and claims that she will order it again upon our eventual return.More

We had a group of 22 out of towners who got together before a high school graduation party the next night. Lisa, Joe, "G", and Nick made it a wonderful evening. Everything flowed smoothly, the food was prepared well (Thank you kitchen), and the bar...kept up. Will be returning on our next trip up from Florida. And "Thank you" for the private area where we were able to socialize without disturbing others or them disturbing us.More

This wasn’t our first choice to go but the other choice couldn’t accommodate our family of seven. In town visiting our daughter and grandchildren and booked this as our second choice. It was fabulous! The staff was amazing, the service was on point and the...best part was the food! I had the salmon and always worry it will be over cooked but it was just perfect! Loved the OrNge Crush drink they are known for and best part is now our daughter found a great restaurant for her and her family.More

This restaurant has changed hands many times and is now the Harbour Grille. What a lovely spot on the water with a view of the boats. They have a large patio and a lot of seating. The staff is super friendly and some stand outs...are the manager, I think his name is jessie and we had a great server named TJ. I have been here 3 times and gotten good service each time. Regarding the food, I have found the sandwiches to be really great, the prime rib sandwich is a stand out. The fish and chips were not very good at all. Tasted as if they pre-fried the fish and then heated it up in the microwave to re-heat. Instead of crispy, they were rubbery and spongy. My husband ended up not eating it after a bite to try it. Just a bit of feed-back for the kitchen. My friends had the pasta and loved it. We will certainly go back.More

I went to brunch at the Harbor Grill yesterday because the previous reviews claimed that they observed social distancing. This is entirely untrue. I sat outside and the hostess sat people at every table. I had people sittting less than 3 feet from me on...3 sides. The restaurant even had the bar open with people sitting next to each other on bar stools. The bloody mary bar was open. People were walking to their table with out masks. Waitstaff didn't were not always wearing their masks. I did not feel safe as a person with diabetes.More

With Covid-19 full blown, it is awesome to be able to join friends and eat lunch outside and not worry about the disease. This was my second visit in about a two-week period. The first time we ate, we sat outside under the tented deck,...but because of the movement of the sun, it got really hot the longer we stayed. This time, we decided to sit under the wooden structure on the deck where cooler air was moved about through fans. Although the menu was varied with salads, burgers and sandwiches, I enjoyed a pound of peel-your-own shrimp and a blue cheese wedge salad. The steamed shrimp was a lovely, Bay seasoned dish served with cocktail sauce and drawn butter. The wedge salad was drizzled in balsamic vinegar, topped with tomato and bacon pieces served with the chunky blue cheese dressing on the side. The only downside to the visit was the cost: I paid $43 with the tip for the salad, an iced tea and shrimp which is a bit pricey for lunch. But to enjoy my friends' company in a safe, healthy environment: priceless. The server never left our drink glasses empty and offered to split our check without us even asking. Overall, a great place to enjoy good food, good service and good company.More

I remember this place many years ago and a local hangout named the oasis. Now named the Harbour Grille, it is been renovated and is really nice. It appears it is still be upgraded and the future changes look remarkable. There is a bar, private...dining, outside covered seating with plastic curtains that roll down if the wind and rain occur. Really worth your time to visit.More

Had never heard of this restaurant but glad someone in the group I went with had. We went on a cold, rainy Monday night and had a great time. Our server was cheerful and attentive even though she was tasked with a table of 18...all by herself. I chose the salmon with seasonal vegetables and shared a bottle of very good and specially priced Pinot noir. The salmon was well prepared. The only down note was the over-salted vegetables which I gave up eating. I’d love to come back when the weather’s better to enjoy sitting outside with a beverage.More

I was visiting my daughter in Woodbridge and she took me to the charming little town of Occoquan. It was a village right out of a Hallmark movie. It is a must see for visitors in the area. We stopped at a number of places,,...one being the Harbour Grille. It was relaxing to sit o the back deck with a cocktail and see all the locals interacting with each other. The early evening we were there, a guitarist was playing and we even got up and danced. We had Margaritas and they were delightful, however we did not eat. I didn't want to leave to go home for dinner.More
