We have been here before for lunch, but not for dinner.
The expectations were high going in with such a reputation.
Unfortunately, they did not meat the expectations. Food was good to great. Service was good.
It is a beautiful restaurant. But the service details were just not there to give it a high rating or review.

It was our first time at the Harbor House. We chose this restaurant because my daughter and her husband had been there before and had raved about the steaks. They were right! The filets were delicious as was everything else, from beginning to end!It was my son's 25th birthday and they brought him a complimentary cheese cake for dessert. How nice! I definitely recommend the chocolate mint brownie as a dessert. Amazing!!

With tickets to the theatre, we were hoping for efficient service and they delivered. Paying for parking is a little excessive, however after paying for a meter on the street we realized lunch parking is free. But the signage is so small that it is hard to see until you walk up. The food was delicious and great selection of wine.

The Harbor House is absolutely beautiful! It felt so inviting and warm too. Everybody was kind, the food came out much quicker than I expected, and my boyfriend almost cried because his lobster was so good! I can't wait to go back!

Dined here for my birthday and it was a wonderful experience. The food was fresh and very tasty. The ambiance was perfect for a cozy, intimate dining experience. You cannot beat the view of the lake; it's really a wondering perk for fresh seafood dining.

We had high expectations and were not disappointed. The entire staff made us feel like VIPs. We had clam chowder and crab cakes for starters and lobster and king crab for our entrees. Everything was perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and brought to our table piping hot. Not bad for a Sunday night.

Seafood Brunch. Wow. Seafood Brunch. Cold Bar: Oysters. Three types. Lox. Salmon on cracker. Tuna poke. Shrimp. Salads. Deviled Eggs much more. I went back 3 times to just the cold bar.
Second station. Lobster pot pie. Cedar Planked salmon. Plus carved tenderloin and ham. Pasta. I went back twice. Third station, omelette bar and breakfast favorites. Desert station. Key lime pie. Chocolate Mousse. Dark chocolate brownies covered in dark chocolate. Much more. Special order snow crab legs and crab cake benedict. Plus their usual multiple draft beers and drinks. The brunch is a very good bargain for the quality and items you get, if you are a seafood lover. For non seafood lovers, they might think it is overpriced. And the view. I have gone twice, and I live in Iowa.

Excellent dinner!! Great food, amazing location! The only complaint (and it's super minor) is that our request for a window table was not fulfilled. We had an amazing time and a wonderful waiter named Ken!! We'll definitely be back!!

exceptional views and extraordinary food and service. No better place to eat in the state of Wisconsin. A perfect setting , active atmosphere , and top shelf all the way. 5 stars plus and a fair value. Not over the top prices but a little more than its peers but worth every cent.

Service was very good. The waiter was friendly and informative. The house surprised our party with complementary sparking wine as there were two wedding anniversaries being celebrated.
The surf & turf was done as expected as was the salmon. The trout was some what over cooked. The last dish was the scallops, which I have had before. They were slightly over cooked but he biggest problem was the size of them. As a restaurant known for upper end seafood dishes the quality of these scallops was something I would would only expect if they were bought from the local grocery store. Except for the scallop disappointment we had a nice evening.

All nine of our group were impressed with the great atmosphere, food quality, and great service. We dined on a Sunday evening which sometimes can be less satisfactory but this was not the case at the Harbor House. I would put this restaurant on my "A" list
