I absolutely loved this restaurant. It is the second time I have been here with friends. I can't wait to bring my husband for a day date. I enjoyed going during the day more than the night just because the view is so spectacular. Our waitress Rachel was adorable and attentive. There is too little space to say all the nice things I could say about this great place.
Food, views and service were exceptional!
Lovely dinner after a play, bread and cracker basket was simple and very good. Beautiful beet salad, the filet mignon was like butter, excellent service. Looking forward to returning.
Our servers, Clarissa and Alex, were amazing and made our visit to Harbor House one of my best dining experiences! The food (a filet and shrimp) were deliciously prepared and the specialty cocktails only enhanced the meal. We finished with a perfectly tart slice of Key Lime pie. Great dining experience!
I love Harbor House! I've never had a bad experience at this Bartolotta gem on Lake Michigan. The staff are always warm and fun, and the oysters and crab cake are dreamy.
It was an anniversary celebration. We were met at our table with Champaign. Food was outstanding and the service could not have been better.
This place knows how to treat people with food allergies
Food was decent but not spectacular. Was really looking forward to this place
Absolutely amazing! Great service, great cocktails, and the best seafood we have had in the Midwest! A definite must!!!
The dessert table leaves much to be desired at the brunch. Seems there are less choices than two years ago. It was good but seems to be declining in food area.
Great brunch! Would recommend the Harbor House, great food and ambiance!
Very good food and an overall excellent experience. We have been to the HH a couple of times and always enjoy our visit. Thank you to the staff for a job well done!
Everything at Harbor House was fantastic - food, service, ambiance! Will definitely be back!
We had a great dining experience. We shared calamari, and enjoyed good wine. I had the walleye which had great flavor. My mother had the trout. She raved about her meal. We had great service, and there were amazing views all around. Such a great place to go for our girls weekend! I recommend Harbor House!
The scallops appetizer was fantastic. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The bowl of lobster bisque soup was highly disappointing. Only three bites of seafood were detected in the entire bowl. The lobster roll sandwich was the absolute worst though. The lobster had no flavor at all. It tasted frozen and watery. Should have just had the appetizer and gone elsewhere.
wonderful spot, beautiful restaurant, great food & service.
As always, The Harbor House is a treat! It is a delight for the senses! The food is delicious, presented beautifully and served expertly! The atmosphere is exceptional! It is at once calm and invigorating. A lovely experience!
Great place for a special occasion. Price point a bit high for amount of food, but food was outstanding!
First of all, it had been noted that we had a bad experience in our last visit so our fabulous waiter (Chris?)
Brought us 2 complimentary appetizers when we sat down. Our dinners were delicious and service was spectacular! We also received 2 desserts, but we could only eat one!
Thank you again, Harbor House!
The food and service were excellent. We went out with two kids and everything was accommodated. Both servers were very friendly to kids. I had the combination; lobster and steak. It was excellent. The mood was very ambient; a good place for a romantic dinner. Servers were very attentive. I would definitely return. I think we found our new favorite place.
We had a 6 pm reservation on a Friday night and were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. The view is amazing. The food was very good and our waiter was very attentive. I think the food is a bit overpriced, but otherwise I can't say a bad thing about this restaurant.
Awesome service and great food!
It had been about 3 years since we were at Harbor House for dinner. We used to go more often as we attend the Rep and like to dine downtown afterward.
It was a Sunday evening and we had reservations for 5:30. We were shown our table on a timely basis. They seated us at the window between two occupied tables and one of the tables had a chair and occupant sitting back from the table. I couldn't get into my seat so my husband not the host, moved the table.
We ordered champagne and my husband asked for specific oysters and before I could add the calamari the waiter took off and I had to call him back. We were told bread was on its way but it took some time before the bread arrived.
The champagne must not have been chilled before they brought it as it warmed the bucket too quickly and we had warm champagne. Our waiter did not come back and check on us or refill our glasses- we had to do that.
We were all through with our appetizers and the waiter then came around for our dinner selections which then provided a significant gap of time between appetizers and dinner. At that time we mentioned our champagne was warm and could they add ice which they did.
The food was excellent but it seems the level of service has gone down significantly since we dined a couple years back. I would also say that the dress code in the restaurant is varied which I do not mind but there were younger men who had baseball hats on and that is just wrong!
Nothing beats the view or the atmosphere here, it's wonderful. The seafood is great too.
One thing, though - would it kill them to give the cocktails names that don't make me want to cringe? Do I they need to make me utter the phrase "Pear-don My French"?
Had a wonderful experience for date night! The service was attentive and extremely friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we were having a great time and felt welcomed. If you are able to take a night to treat yourself, this is the place to do it!
Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The food, service, and ambiance are all phenomenal. We sat at the chef’s table and were treated to a few surprises including their scallops appetizer - delicious!!
A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. No regrets. Will definitely go back.
My husband and I went to the Harbor House for our anniversary. We had excellent staff and a wonderful meal. I love the decor. Tables are a little close I felt like your neighbors could hear your conversation. High ceilings made it a little noisy. We had a beautiful view. Would love to come again in the summer and sit outside.
had a wonderful experience. food was great. Service excellent. Great views.
Enjoyed a great lunch of good food, conversation friendly with a beautiful view. Service was attentive from the whole staff. Thanks Harbor House. Will keep you in mind next time I'm in the Milwaukee area.
Great food and great service! We just relocated to Milwaukee and Harbor House is a new favorite!
The food is amazing, the view is spectacular, and the staff is great! It was a wonderful dining experience!
The bar, location, menu and facility are all very nice. We were at a table near the kitchen and it ruined the entire experience. Very loud, was unable to have normal table conversation. The table location became uncomfortable and made us want to leave as quickly as possible. Not the "high-end" dining experience we were seeking.
We arrived early to enjoy cocktails at the bar. The cocktails were ok, slightly on the weaker side and the service was average. The server took our order, brought our drinks then we had to get his attention to order an appetizer. When our table was ready, we were greeted by a server who explained they were a team. We placed our order and waited for our meal. The servers did not return until our meal was brought, they never offered an additional beverage in between , in general they were not very attentive. Service was so so. The ambiance was very nice but unlike the old “ Pieces of Eight”, not very conducive to a romantic evening. The restroom facilities were lacking in space for the number of customers. The food however was very good but could have been served warmers.
Overpriced, overcrowded, overloud. Poor layout with everyone smashed together...our wait staff changed in the middle with no explanation and we didn’t get our app until we asked...after the soup and salad...terrible crab cake. Devons is much better -food is great, ambience is much better, prices as well. Will not be back.
The place and the food were great but was kinda disappointed with the service that we had to wait for the waitress to come by that we need something. Have to tell you that the food were excellent and very pleased with the seafood (South African Lobsters )! I thanked the manager for taking care of the situation that we have face problem . They were great !
This was by far the BEST seafood meal I have ever eaten! The branzino was simply amazing! Everything about our dinner was absolutely fantastic. Can't wait until our next time there!
Helped us to celebrate a special occasion in style. We mentioned to service staff that we were celebrating parents anniversary and their respective birthdays; they brought a flight of champagne as a toast and dessert to celebrate, and made them feel very special. Food and service very good. Service team was very attentive. Waterfront location and view is hard to match. Overall, very happy with the evening and would recommend to others.
Amazing water view, good food. Expensive, but worth it for special occasion.
Such a pretty place on the lake! Very friendly when we came in...but the waitress seemed to not like her job...don't know why-she should make a lot of tips based on the expensive menu. Nobody seemed too thrilled with their food...just not that great...one exception...the french fries were excellent!!!
Everytime we have chosen The Harbor House for dinner, we have not been disappointed. The food is top notch, the atmosphere is upbeat and the view is unmatched. The best part are the servers and Kaitlyn. We had our son's rehearsal dinner last summer in the Captain's room and it was fabulous. We haven't been able to get back down until last night and even after 6 months, Kaitlyn greeted us and made our family feel right at home. They are doing something right at the Harbor House!
