The restaurant is not kind and friendly I would not recommend it to anyone the food was decent the portion size was okay the desert portion size however was more like a Slither of cake that I ordered Holly the help slash waitress whatever she would like to be called either didn't want to wait on an African American woman or just had no personable skills to lend. She was very short with me she was very abrupt and she was very rude to me I paid $17 for a meal which I don't mind if the service and the atmosphere equates to the quality of the food I would not recommend Harbor City Diner to anyone
Posting this on Yelp instead since it'll be seen by far more than just the Yellow Pages. Given my rating though, it is not good.
STAY AWAYLast night my family had dinner at the mentioned location. Our experience was ok, but that's not the case.This morning (9/24/07) we received a warning from our bank, informing us of 2 suspicious transactions. When we called the bank we came to the conclusion that this unknown transaction were made at the restaurant using an I phone with a Square scanner (possible a fake account)I called the restaurant and talk to the manager. She was no helpful at all and took it very personal. On her own words "no one here do that, call the law enforcement, I can't help you".Her tone was very defensive. Very disappointed about the lack of concern of this manager.And yes I been contacting my local law enforcement department about this issue, and oviously my family will never go back to that location.
We come here to the Sebastian Squid Lips when we want a special dinner at a nice seafood restaurant, maybe once a month. I get the grilled salmon, my husband has the grilled Maui Maui and my mother loves the fried fish. Vegetables are so good with rice and the complimentary bread loaf is so tasty. Service is always prompt and courteous. Prices are within our budget, very good meals and a wonderful out-of-town experience. Love you Sebastian Squid Lips!
I have purchased the crabs, shrimp and corn/potatoe combinatin. I love the seasoning and it stops me from missing Maryland! Lol
Didn't have what I ordered, veg. was undercooked, and drink watered down. Use to be nice place to eat.
My husband and I went to squid lips by recommendation. I ordered a burger and he ordered a Cuban WITHOUT mustard. The meal arrived and his sandwich was smothered in mustard. He sent it back and was told 4 minutes. Well 4 minutes turned to 20. He was told the sandwiches came pre assembled and they are making his from scratch. It finally came and was smaller than the original. He was told they doubled the meat. After a few bites, he again tasted mustard. When he took the sandwich apart, there was mustard. Apparently they took the old sandwich and put the halves with little mustard together thinking he would not taste it. The waiter CRAIG LIED! My husband was disgusted by then and just sent it back. He didn't pay for it, but he didn't eat lunch either. We will not be back!
After reading such a great article, in the Florida Today Newspaper, on Shep’s Diner we encouraged our group of bowling friends to try it out. What a mistake that was. We waited a long time for our orders. I ordered a cheese mushroom hamburger cooked medium rare…it was well done and dry and wishing I could see the mushrooms. Waitress kept calling it a cheese burger and I guess she was right, but she did bring me more very greasy mushrooms after I had my hamburger half eaten. My husband’s hamburger was tough…yep tough. How do you make a tough hamburger unless it was reheated in the microwave to long. Another order of fried clam strips was rubbery. Someone else’s order of hash browns was so greasy they could not eat them. AND then we waited and waited for our checks. Bad service…bad food..we will not be going there again.
I recommend the vegetarian omelet and add asparagus! And I also love that the owner was willing to donate GC's to the BOOTY RUN 5K for Colon Cancer Awareness to benefit our local charity (Cancer Care Foundation.) and I like to patronize these places that do give back to our community. So when I decided to give this place a try and found it to be clean, waitress to be friendly and attentive and my service to be fantastic. Food came out HOT and I enjoyed it very much. I think people who writes a novel for a review and nit-picks every tiny aspect of a café needs to relax + calm down and realize your crappy review just makes you look like you have nothing to do but make themselves feel relevant. IMO
I've eaten at this diner for years and for diner's it's great! I'm wondering if the previous reviewer is in the right place???? I've never seen any of the things he/she said happen there. Waitresses are always on top of their orders. Never, ever have I seen anyone (worker or customer) appear as dope heads!!! This is an out and out attack on this restaurant, maybe from a disgruntled dope head ex-employee? I would highly recommend That Little Restaurant to everyone. Food is great and service great as well.
