We we seated at the Chef’s Table.. it was A bit hot and noisy, but the complimentary appetizers made up for it. Two of us were vegetarian and the chef was quite accommodating considering it is a seafood restaurant. We will visit again, but request a regular table.

Our son is in the US Navy and was leaving the next day for San Diego. I noted on the reservation that we were celebrating his departure. Our service team was SO amazing to our son. They acknowledged his military service ... and even asked about San Diego! And, after our meal, they brought us champagne and 2 desserts. Our son was very surprised and appreciated it - even though he would normally tell you that he doesn't like people to make a "fuss" over him. Thank you so much to the Harbor House staff for making our son's last evening at home a memorable one. This Mom greatly appreciated it!!

The regular bar was packed by 4:30 on a Friday night so I decided to sit at the oyster bar not expecting a waitress to offer to take our drink order but she did. A pleasant surprise. Marini was very good but also very pricey.
I ordered the small filet and lobster combo. The lobster was great. I asked for my steak to be served rare-plus and it was cooked medium. It was a business meeting so I did not tell the waitress.
We got a seat by the window and it was terrific. Can't beat this place for the view.

This has become one of our favorites! The food was great, and since we were there for our anniversary, we were also treated to a champagne toast to start our meal, and a piece of key lime pie for dessert. We enjoyed a 3 HOUR DINNER, and kudos to the staff for not rushing us.

WE make a 1.5 hour drive from Madison for the Sunday brunch for special occasions. The selection is always reliable, the quality is outstanding. The restaurant is open and comfortable, with most tables at the windows , or with a great view. It's even impressive after dark, or on winter days. Even at $40 a person for brunch, its a good value because of the quality of the experience. The staff is welcoming and friendly, and very accommodating. I would recommend Harbor House very strongly for Sunday brunch, or any special occasion.

We went there for our Anniversary. I had noted that in the reservation. I also asked for window seating. We were first seated in the back area not near a window. We told the host that we requested window seating because of our Anniversary and we were moved. We did get two flutes of champagne. Our meal was very delicious.
