This was by far the BEST seafood meal I have ever eaten! The branzino was simply amazing! Everything about our dinner was absolutely fantastic. Can't wait until our next time there!

This is a beautiful spot for dinner. The food was wonderful. The service was a little less attentive than usual. Our drinks and water were slow to be refilled and the servers were not as attentive as usual. This was notable because the service is usually impeccable.

The food for brunch, as always, was fantastic. The our server on the other hand didn’t seem very pleased with her job this day. Reserved and cold was her demeanor Sunday. I understand the restaurant is busy but it took her a good 15 minutes to get our drinks. And every time we ordered crab legs or eggs Benedict, she looked displeased.

While most of the food was delicious (my steak was great, but husband's lobster tails were overcooked), I thought the value for the price was a little lacking. You get nothing with your a $44 entree other than 2 small sides. No salad, no soup. Not even a bread basket for your table. I guess I just expected a few "extras" for a $160 dinner for 2 people. Portions of the sides are also rather small. Would also appreciate some non-seafood appetizer and soup options.

We had soooo much fun celebrating my birthday! Love the fact you offer corking fees to bring our own wine. The service was fantastic, the food was outstanding (as usual) and we were the last ones to leave the restaurant! Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Given the reputation of the Harbor House, I expected a bit more. Was the food delicious? Yes. However, the service was a bit off. From the time we sat down to the time our drinks were served was a noticeable 15 minutes. The Main Dish was about 75 minutes to serve from the time of sit down. That is a bit long for me.
I want to clarify that our waiter and his assistant were pleasant. In no way rude. Perhaps just too many tables to tend to.
Will I go again? Yes, perhaps. The food was very good.

Food and service were excellent however the walleye portion was very small and they loaded the plate with potatos I presume to make it look larger.

Shrimp appetizer was large and very tasty.

Will definitely return however would like to see the portions reflected in the price.

Everything was excellent. Drinks, apps, dinner, and dessert were so good on every level. It's spendy, but worth it.

We were in Milwaukee for a weekend without kids and this was a perfect date night restaurant. Food was amazing and we had a great view of the harbor. I would love to come back in the Summer to enjoy the location a bit more.

Service is always great with 2 wait staff to support your table. I departed from my usual filet to get the Lobster puff pie, it was tasty! Harbor House is always a safe bet for a delicious meal.

We are regulars at the Harbor House, except we had not been here for a few months. I made a reservation and requested a window table (which I usually do but rarely get one) Tonight we had a very nice private table in the back room. It was 5:30 pm on a Friday night and already very busy. We had two male servers and both were attentive without being intrusive. They were also very well informed regarding the menu and wine. We had oysters, chowder, salad (the beet salad was wonderful) and shared 3 appetizers, the shrimp, bay scallops and crab cake. It was all excellent. The server had recommended and asked the chef if we could do half salads as they are very large, glad he did as we had plenty of food.

overall a good experience just not the value I expected. The cat of the meals are higher end but the quality for the money does match the food. The selection is not outstanding but rather ordinary. I had the filet and king crab , the filet was fired perfect the king crab had been sitting but was ok . I think the prices are due to hi cost of location rather than the food . Will go back for sure but not running back

Overpriced for the amount of food received. My steak was overcooked when I ordered the combination platter and got only 3 scallops.
