We had a reservation just after sunset this past Valentine's Day and were not in the least bit disappointed. Delicious seafood, great wine, beautiful view, doting and remarkably friendly wait staff. It really made a special night come together perfectly. Thank you so much.

Service is friendly and efficient. Very knowledgeable staff. The Sunday brunchbuffet from 10am-2pm is a can't miss for anyone! Trust me, it's worth the $40! You get way over your money's worth with the fresh and absolutely delicious salmon and steak, pastas, made to order omelettes on the spot, fresh mini waffles with a full topping station, all the bacon and breakfast sausages you can dream of, and the best part, the crab legs and specialty omelettes! (You order the crab legs and specialty omelettes from the server as these are not out on the buffet line. The day we went they had salmon omelettes and crab cakes eggs Benedict which were absolutely glorious!) And let's not forget the cold foods station packed with peel and eat shrimp, oysters with a wide variety of sauces and garnishes, cold cuts, cheeses, salads, and a dessert bar full of dozens of fresh delicious goodies! Also have a good selection of alcoholic drinks and wines by the glass at very affordable prices! And the views of the lake front and the art museum, simply immaculate! Worth going just for the view especially on a bright sunny morning.

Great dinner for wife's birthday. Alex and Michael were very attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent and the meal was paced perfectly. Would definitely return and recommend to our friends. Would like to try the Sunday Brunch.

The Harbor House is extraordinary in every way... service, ambiance is just the best. The food was exceptional. Definitely the finest Milwaukee has to offer. You will not be disappointed but amazed. Five stars all around!

Tom and Cory (waitstaff) were great. Attentive to asking how the dining experience was going, made sure wine was poured at timely intervals--but not overly pressing with stops at our table. Gave us time to dine and visit. Milwaukee nightlights shoreline is amazing!

I used to love the brunch at Harbor House. Best one in town, I thought. So, because my daughter was visiting from Germany and my granddaughter's birthday was that day, I reserved a table for 7 at 12:45pm Sunday, February 5. First of all, prices have gone way up. Food quality has gone way down. For example, when my daughter and I went to the cold selections there was just a tiny dab of caesar salad dressing left in the bowl, only 6 lonely peel and eat shrimp in the ice bowl and no tuna tartare at all. What used do be a delicious lobster pot pie is now called "seafood pot pie" and I found no trace of seafood in mine. Coffee not included. Mimosas not included in the price. More attention should be paid if Harbor House is going to continue to charge the prices they do. We were so disappointed!

I have been to the Harbor House many times for business meals but this is the first time I took my wife as it is a fair drive to get their. She had the filet with shrimp and I had the filet with lobster tail. Both were phenomenal. Excellent date night or anniversary spot for a romantic evening; the lights around the harbor at night can be seen from any table in the restaurant. We will be back.

We celebrated our anniversary there and they made it really special. Seated us in a booth to give us more privacy, even though restaurants only concerned about the dollar usually won't give up a booth that accomodates 4 or 5 to just 2. Food was outstanding! Best filet I believe I've ever had and my wife had the branzino. When she hesitated about having it served whole, they promptly told her that would fillet it for her. And to top it off, they brought a nice complimentary dessert to recognize our anniversary. food, service, atmosphere, location were all just perfect.

Wife celebrated our 57 years of marriage with a brunch, food and tables were super. My only complaint would be that there is not a good place to sit while waiting to be shown to table - they have the bar stools but I do not like the high chairs.

We haven't been here in a while. The food was very good, and the wine list seems to have improved since our last visit. We chose an interesting (and delicious) Chardonnay from South Africa. Service was attentive. Our only complaint is that we were not offered coat check and had to ask. Noticed there were coats all over the dining room, and the coat room was practically empty when we fetched our coats. What's the deal with not taking coats?

Terrific brunch! Freshest, highest quality seafood (crab legs, smoked salmon, tuna tartare, oysters, mussels) for buffet-style brunch available anywhere in the midwest, and includes some made to order items - crab cake benedict was one of my favorite eggs benedicts that I've ever had. Simple and elegant decor and awesome location. Great service.

They are known for their Sunday brunch and they delivered! Food is spread over separate stations around the restaurant including a Bloody Mary/Mimosa bar. Great views and wonderful ambience including the right music for Sunday brunch.

Food was good - not great, and it was luke warm when it arrived at our table. Not at all what I am used to with a Bartolatta Restaurant. Service was good not great. I am used to great service, at a Bartolatta restaurant. Do not care for $6.00 for valet parking, way out of line. I can park my own car. Would like to return to see if restaurant gets there act together. But they were off on this night. Would pay the valet parking, but I do expect much better attention to the food and the service. When you pay as much as they charge, I want to receive that in food and service. It should be excellent. Mr B.'s is always excellent, my hats off to there manager.

My husband and I rave about the Harbor House! The oyster selection is amazing for the MidWest! Always fresh and different we enjoy the oysters every time we come. The wait staff is overly attentive and polite. The cuisine is impeccable! The bar, amazing drinks especially the Amelia!! Food presentation is beautiful and tastes amazing! We also love the proximity to the waterfront!
