Harbor House Ratings and Reviews

Went here for the first time to celebrate our 9 year anniversary and couldn't have picked a better spot. The food was outstanding as well as the service & the view was beautiful. Highly recommend the price is definitely worth it!

I had a reservation two weeks in advance and asked for Windows seats to celebrate my wife birthday with a table for 2. We were seated smack dab in the middle of an extremely congested restaurant and we almost left but decided we already paid for valet parking we may as well just stay. Poor attention to detail especially for someone who was proactive in reserving a good table

My wife and I went out for our date night. This was our first time visiting the Harbor House and we had a positive experience. We had a beautiful view of the lake, outstanding service by two gentlemen, and it was the best filet that we've ever had. We typically do not go out to restaurant's of this caliber due to cost, but in the future when we do go out for a more expensive meal I do believe we will be coming back. :)

As usual, the view is lovely. Our server was fabulous Fri night (?Tom and Crystal). Oysters were great, as was the Caesar. The main course (Ahi & Swordfish) didn't amaze us, mediocre at best. Dessert was very good. Surprised when we arrived they checked us in and gave us a buzzer for when our table was ready. Isn't this supposed to be a 4-5 star restaueabt? It wasn't busy, no reason they couldn't walk over and let us know by name our table was ready. In the end, we'll stick with happy hour, a cocktail and the view and forgo the $$$ dinner.

Beautiful setting on thelake. There is a lovely outdoor area when it is warm that is worth the visit in itself. The food is much better than it has to be given the spectacular setting. Service was extremely friendly.

My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary there. The waiters anticipated needs, didn't bombard, surprised us with champagne and TWO desserts! Drinks and food were phenomenal and the candlelit ambient and the lake views were exceptional. Highly recommend.

Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with dinner here. Our servers were knowledgeable and attentive. Complementary glass of champagne was a nice touch! The muscles in butter wine sauce were delicious! Our entres of scallops with ribeye steak and Lake Erie walley were excellent. Will definitely dine here again! Want to try the happy hour menu as well.

The food is good, although a bit pricey for frequent visits. The service was wonderful. A little disappointed in the fact that children were running around outside our window without adult supervision. However, the view of Lake Michigan was very nice.

We always have a wonderful time and enjoy the freshest delicious seafood and the best views. The wait staff are consistently welcoming and helpful. Appreciate too the valet staff who have become familiar friendly faces to us.

Harbor House is a great spot. We were in town for a wedding and a friend recommended it. Amazing! The food was SO good. We were stuffed but didn't want to leave any behind! Everything was over-the-top delicious. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Milwaukee.

Your web site states that Happy hour is from 4-6 and includes beer, wine and appetizers and does restrict it the rail purchases. Upon arrival for a 5 o'clock reservation we told happy hour is restricted to rail purchases . Your web site needs CORRECTION!
A bit misleading !!!

Outstanding ambiance with view of the city of Milwaukee shoreline. Service very slow, 35+ minutes for appetizers at the bar and 30+ minutes for dinner to be served once seated. For white table cloth restaurant expectation would be wait staff with higher level of service skills.

We were referred here by a friend, to take my parents and out of town family. We were not disappointed! They are a bit tricky to find, as they are out in the lake near the children's museum, but that is what provides their view. You get a lovely view of the lake, the art museum, and the downtown. The food was great, the service was prompt, and even though we arrived very late for lunch, when they start seating people in a different area to prep for dinner, we didn't feel they were irritated with us - which is a huge deal. I will definitely return.

Great lakefront dinning. We used to go when it was the "Pieces of Eight" Many years ago. We saw it was open again and went on Labor Day weekend. Food was great! Had raw oysters, many different kinds to chose from, fried clams, not chewy like some, large shrimp cocktail. Also a lobster salad and a lobster pot pie. Both were very large, full of lobster meat and neither us could finish. Next time in Milwaukee, we will return. A little pricey but what the hey? Service was great. Just enough attention with out being intrusive.

Excellent experience. Lively, bright, clean atmosphere. Food and service were very good. Hosted clients from out of town, and I cannot think of a better place to showcase Milwaukee - excellent views of downtown and Lake Michigan. We were in town for the LSU-Wisconsin game and it appeared there was no dress code at least on the night we were there. The visuals on the Harbor House website seem to convey a more upscale, formal atmosphere but in reality it was a very casual place. Not at all a criticism, as it fit our needs very well, but just a heads up for those seeking "formal/upscale" particularly for business purposes.

Terrific location and wonderful meal and service. Place was very busy but the service was excellent. Very knowledgeable staff for both food and wine. View of the water is great from almost any table. (We had a table by the water which was an added bonus.) We were visiting Milwaukee from out of town and when we return to the city, will definitely dine at Harbor House again.

The atmosphere and ambience was nice, but the service was extremely slow. My wife excused herself to make a trip to the ladies room, but she left her order with me. Upon her return she learned the waiter did not return for the order. I subsequently had to waive the server over to our table and we placed our order. When our meal finally arrived, the halibut was dry and very salty.
