We did not like the table we were initially seated at as it was in the middle of a couple large loud parties already seated but they were able to accommodate our request to a quieter table...after that everything was fine

We went for Thanksgiving dinner. The food was mediocre at best. The side dishes were few and not appealing to the eye. The turkey was good the first time, but the second time it was very dry and extremely salty. There was no jellied cranberry sauce. There were no rolls or other breads. The salad was not in plain view. The appetizers seemed to be only shrimp and they were not in plain view. All in all, for $45.00 per person, this was a very poor dinner.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there. We were looking for some place quiet and romantic but although it was in the room we were in, there was a family gathering in the area next to us and rather loud. The scallops that I ordered were rather bland. Dessert was the best part! The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant though.

Overall dining experience was a disappointment. Food was adequate although several people in our group of 6 said their food wa served lukewarm. Service was the primary issue. The server was very pleasant; however, we had long waits throughout the evening even though the restaurant wasn't excessively busy. We had reservations and still had to wait 10 minutes to be seated even with several empty tables available. Then we had long waits between every course and with the check.

Think of a seafood menu from 20 years ago and you'll know what's available at Harbor House. After its recommendation from Trip Advisor, our entire group of 6 was disappointed. The room was uncomfortably warm, we had to ask twice for bread (20 minute wait) and we went elsewhere for coffee and dessert. There are much better places in Mystic, especially at the prices charged.

We made a reservation for 6:15pm but when we arrived we were told that we could not have a water front view, which is what this restaurant is know for and the only reason we made a reservation here. Our salads did not arrive until 7pm. At 7:40pm, our dinner had still not arrived!! We complained to the manager and we were told it would be out shortly. Finally received dinner at 7:50pm. At this point we didn't even feel like eating. Overall a huge disappointment. Would not recommend as they obviously have huge kitchen and service issues! And way overpriced!!

5:30 reservation. Did not leave restaurant until 8:45 due to slow service. 3 out of 5 meals had to be returned as they were cold and prepared incorrectly. The overall quality of the food, service and attitude of the manager were very disappointing. A shame since the outside setting is pleasant. A clear lack of professional management and poor quality of kitchen knowledge and food execution. Will never return. Can't recommend this place for anything other than an outdoor drink. And even then, the wait staff has poor knowledge of their rotating beer choices.

My 10 year old son and I spent an overnight in mystic. Harbor house was at our hotel. It was beautiful and the food was delicious! I also appreciated the fact that I could have a cocktail and not have to drive! My son declared the lobster was the best he ever had. I would return to this restaurant in a heartbeat!

After fairly good reviews of this establishment we decided to check it out on 8/18/16. The site was nice but upon entering the actual restaurant building it was musty smelling.
Drinks were fair at best for $10 a piece and took longer than expected to receive. We had a 6:15 pm seating.
We ordered entrees only. All entrees came in reasonable time. I ordered the ahi tuna which was OK. The other entrees included filet mignon and chicken caprese. The filet was good but the pile of mashed potatoes tasted like anything but. The chicken was the worst. A breaded piece of chicken over white rice with unseasoned greens and tomatoes surrounding it. The most unflavored dish possible. No thought put in to dish at all.
For dessert we were told about 3 things they were already out of and when one choice was made to make up for the chicken that was taken off bill we were then told that also wasn't available. Did I mention a 6:15 pm seating?
Mediocre food, old ambience in need of update. Saving grace is view but I can't eat that.
Wouldn't not recommend at all to anyone.

Sad to say this was a very disappointing outing. The restaurant has the potential to be a real "go to restaurant" with a great view but the waite staff needs definite training and the food better preparation. The Bar is very active with alive band (noisy) and plenty of dancing young people - so I would say it is quite successful. The deck off the Bar is popular. Just hope the management concentrates on bringing the restaurant to it's possible potential.

This was our second visit and unfortunately didn't go very well. Sat for quite a while and had no server. I had to get up and interrupt a group of six servers, chatting together, to ask for a waitperson. Soup came not even room temperature, fried lobster tail was good but a little explanation on how to eat it would have saved us some time, no specials were offered. We had to ask for everything, including flatware and water, multiple times. Ordered the chicken carbonaro and everything about this dish was awesome except for the chicken. It was overcooked, dry and stringy and I had to spit it into my napkin, I couldn't break it down by chewing. The rest of the dish, minus eating any of the chicken, was amazing. The stuffed sole was also very good. We told our waitress of the food problems and her answer was "that is why I never order chicken in a restaurant". She offered us nothing for all of our troubles, and we didn't ask. The new asst. manager happened to stop over and say hi and we told her everything and she gave us 10% off the bill. I imagine some day we will go back, but not anytime soon.

Had a pretty average meal here. It was quite a disappointment since I expected better. Service was slow and we felt abused. We ate outside since the weather was nice and the view was pretty. The extremely slow service, which was "apologized" for by the server, left us outside eating in the dark. There was no where near enough lighting for us to see our food which left us disappointed and disparaged. I'll never go back.

Nice , clean, and roomy layout. Tables not squished together. Very good food and very good variety of food. Good and attentive servers. Attentive manager (rare). Also stayed and listened to music which was also very good.
