Great food, great views, great service. Our favorite spot for special occasions!
Great food and great service
One of the rare "get up and walk around" multiple-station brunches
In MKE. Only real issue is the cramped set up. Narrow aisles make it easy to get bumped into while sitting by others headed to the buffets. Stony value for the quality and variety
Sunday Brunch at Harbor House is a wonderful way to celebrate! Whether it's a birthday, anniversary or just-because, the service, the food, the ambiance all add up to a great experience!
The Sunday Brunch will satisfy every seafood fan...and meat fans too!! Fresh oysters, cocktail shrimp, tuna tartare, baked salmon, lobster pot pie... it's all there! Add made to order omelettes, a meat carving station and amazing little waffles and a great selection of salads and you'll get your money's worth. You may think it's expensive but it's worth every penny!
Add the view of downtown Milwaukee that is nonpareil!!
Best service, Heidi is awesome!!!
Great service. Great servers and waitress. Delicious food. I really enjoyed my first visit here. We will definitely be back.
A friend recommended going here... Took my fiancé and another couple..Overall a disappointing experience. Dark, loud and crowded (seats VERY close together) had to dodge customers and servers going in, out and to the restroom. Scallop appetizer was over cooked (and overpriced.. 3 small scallops for $21.00, and I don’t think they were even U10’s. Steak was medium, wanted medium rare, but didn’t want to fuss... not THAT big of a deal. Sides were warm at best...
Service was the one bright spot. Our servers were on point... very polite and attentive.
Sadly the food was just ok, ambiance was not for me. Wouldn’t recommend.
Great all around. And no surprise. Always wonderful.
Minus my boyfriend learning he was allergic to oysters, the meal was fantastic.
We've never had a bad meal, here. The service is always exceptional; a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Food was flavorful without complication. Service was top notch. Views were great!
The Harbor House is a great asset for the city. Upscale atmosphere, outstanding views of the city and superior food. we were disappointed with the dessert menu..fruits and veggies (yes, carrot cake).
Awesome service and delicious food and drink
Just a bit too loud. Loved our table right by the lake. Dinner was very good as always. Servers were attentive without being intrusive.
We love Harbor House for special occasions but had never had brunch there. It was wonderful with many choices of fresh, delicious food. Worth the money for great food, excellent service and amazing view.
Food is fresh,. View and ambiance is perfect. Best buffet food experience in many years. I would recommend to anyone.
Everything was just excellent!!!
Great place, great view - but for what the brunch is it was very expensive. Also the layout isn't the best with scattered stations. Also forgot about Bartollatas rewards - wish the server would ask each time so I remember to get the points.
The food was amazing. The service was outstanding and very friendly!
Great venue to entertain out of state guests! Service is excellent
Service did not meet expectations for this upscale restaurant. It was slow. The noise level loud and the seating was cramped.
Halibut was good but steak was dry.
Not our first time at this restaurant but unlikely to return.
We got seated in the back by the kitchen. I had asked if we could be moved closer to the windows as it was our Anniversary. Was first told no by the person who sat us. Then I asked our server and she asked the hostess which then moved us. Everything wonderful....service mediocre. Joel was good, other server not very attentive.
The majority of food was good. Service from the first server was not good. Several of us had the crab legs. They where dry and either over cooked or freezer burnt. We did eat them but very disappointed. Had the server asked how our meal was I would have told him. It was not until we gave him the check I asked if he would let kitchen know about the crab. He did credit us the crab dinners.
The second server did provide free desserts for our birthday folks.
As soon as you walk in, you have a warm and inviting feel. Gorgeous lighting and seating arrangements for viewing the city. Taste of food was remarkable and thoughtfully presented. Perfect place to have a lovely dinner and good conversation.
Bartolotta restaurants never disappoint and our evening at Harbor House keeps the streak alive. It was our first time to this facility. We were early and had a couple drinks at the fabulous bar. Just a beautiful, light envioronment and the staff is tops - one of the key reasons we love Bartolotta restaurants! The other thing we love is the food. I had Scallops - absolutely devine. I don't know how they do it. We've lived in both the East Coast and West Coast and the greatest seafood shows up at Bartolottas. It was our anniversary and they treated us to a piece of cheesecake. The whole night was exceptional. Thanks
A group of friends went out for dinner after a conference in Milwaukee. We enjoyed a nice dinner together the last evening. The food was delicious, location was great, and the service was good. Food is a little pricey, however.
My wife & I dined at Harbor House from 6:00 to 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 3. We were seated, as per our request, by a window overlooking the bay, with views of the Milwaukee Art Museum, of the reddening sky, and of the many, many Canada Geese coming and going.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The food was delicious; the service excellent. For many years, Harbor House has been our favorite place to dine during our semi-annual visits to Milwaukee. We'll definitely be back next year.
Wonderful dining experience...from the valet greeting to the hostess to the excellent service.
Leisurely dining; perfectly paced; delicious food.
Very special evening, thank you HH! This was our 4th annual dinner (son at Marquette/family weekend). Freshest oysters, shrimp cocktail, perfect lobster and steak. Perfectly crafted cucumber Moscow mule, classic old-fashioned and side car. Sweet treat for my birthday surprise, and even the burger our youngest ordered was amazing. Nicely done HH. We'll be back!
The servers were absent through the whole dinner. They were more concerned with a larger table and paid no attention to us. Constantly had to wait for them to come back and find out we’re still there so that we can order our dinner. The food was mediocre at best not worth the price tag. Will not return. Presentation of the food was terrible and the quality was low. The gluten-free options were a joke. The french fries seem to be frozen instead of fresh cut. Felt like cafeteria Quality.
Back room next to the window was quiet and beautiful w a night view of the skyline. Oysters were excellent and so were the scallops. Def coming back!
Great service. Food was beyond good! Can't wait to go back!
Very nice evening!
Excellent service, wonderful food, great experience overall.
Wonderfully evening! Our server was perfect, one of the best we’ve ever had! The halibut was delicious, however the portion size of the cous cous that came with it was very small.
Our food was delicious, modern, beautiful, healthy, and light. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. We had a beautiful use of both the lake and the city. Classic, timeless restaurant with updated fare.
Our lunch at the Harbor House was absolutely outstanding! Both the food and the service couldn't have been better. What a beautiful view of the Milwaukee skyline and the lake while we dined. Excellent!!!
A solid lunch experience. I’ve been to several Bartalotta’s restaurants over the years, I moved two hours away from Milwaukee nine years ago, and it’s always our favorite to come back to when visiting family or friends. Took my mom there for her birthday along with a few family members recently and while the service and ambiance were great, the food was just “good”, not great as usual. This was my first time at Harbor House. Maybe it was a fluke? I hope so.
Excellent Birthday celebration with great food, service and ambiance!
You cannot beat the view of the Lake if you are lucky enough to get a window view (which we were)
Our wait staff was excellent and very patient; I was not happy with the taste of the margarita and it was promptly corrected.
We ate at Harbor House in August and my husband chose it again for his birthday dinner. He informed me we will be back soon.
