Great atmosphere and experience. I had a service dog and they sat us in a beautiful location but was a little cold and no lights. Had to use phone flashlight. Service was great. Food was tasty. Son's steak was cold and charred vegetables but the greatest but overall good just a bit pricey. Thank you for a great dinner.

They advertise oysters special but didn’t have them available. Since my son and I love oysters we ended up paying an extremely expensive oysters.

I want to take the time to tell you the host wasn't all that friendly, so we were skeptical going inside but Brigitte our waitress was very attentive and kind she made our anniversary well worth coming. The seat that the host gave us was infront of a patio door and it was really cold but Brigitte closed and we were able to enjoy the view and our meal. WE Will definitely come back due to the tasty food and her service.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary dinner. Even though I sent a note of the occasion through Open Table, it was not acknowledged. I loved to see the social distancing enforcer both on inside and outside seating. It makes you feel way more comfortable. We ordered the shrimp tacos and the linguini. To fill that spot we added an order of French fries. The tacos and the linguini were totally meh. The shrimp in the tacos is not battered, so diet wise it's better lol. The fries were bomb. Our waitress was very nice and she would share suggestions which we always love. She recommended the red sangria vs the white one and it was pretty good. I finished with two expresso martinis that were just wonderful and some bread that was also pretty good.

From start to finish it was a great dinner experience! We were greeted with a Happy Anniversary off the bat and walked to a cute private patio table with a great view of the water and sunset! Our server congratulated us a few times during dinner and was so thoughtful and attentive! The claims and lobster bisque was great and our meals were filling and delicious. We were presented with a beautifully plated desert at the end. We’ve celebrated many special occasions here over the last 20 years and will continue to as they always exceed expectations in every way!

Visited Harbor House for lunch. Decided on this restaurant because of the incredible views from the second story. Service was good and the food was just "okay." The calamari was okay and we felt that there was something off with the She Crab Chowder. It had no flavor other than tasting like flour paste. We would come back but would try other menu items.

Lobster bisque came out and had obviously sat under the warmer too long. Very little sherry to add.


Beet salad was underdressed and underwhelming. Too many greens. Couldn’t find beets or goat cheese.

Nice view. Good for tourists. Locals avoid at all costs.

Wonderful experience dining out for the first time is awhile! Food and service were excellent. We were seated outside in a beautiful area with a view of Seaport Village. Only draw back was the exterior lighting....wish it were lit better.
