Really great service! I love how they work as a team and everyone was checking in us. Cannot say enough good things about the server's here.
Buffet was pretty basic and some of the food was cold and dry. For $28 a person we were hoping for a bit better food.
We will try it again and give it another shot just because the service was so amazing! Hopefully the food will be better next time!

Recommend reservations!
Very nice evening on the outdoor patio overlooking the water. Koodos to the family entertainer- love the songs from Neil Young, awesome!
Relaxed environment to kick back and relax with a glass of wine and an appetizer. Staff very attentive. Definitely planning to visit again.

The perch was awful. Very rubbery as I saw on line from others after our visit. We mentioned to manager but she still charged us the full amount even though we were not able to eat our dinners. My wife and I payed $100. For a meal we didn’t eat and my mother-in-law payed over $50. for a meal she did not eat. Very disappointed in the food.

If you have nut/seed allergies not everything is listed on the menu. Be sure to ask. Poppy seeds on the ahi tuna that is not labeled as so. Chef asked if I’m not deathly allergic he could just cut it off. I said no. And ordered something else. Luckily the waitress was awesome 👌🏻

This was my second time and it felt kind of tarnished because the last time was awesome.

Our server was great very attentive and friendly always checking up on us. The food was fantastic and the weather turned out to be nice.

Dinner was too loud, but lunch was perfect. I would recommend.

Enjoyed our lunch. Love the restoration of this building. Food was great. Lunch menu is a little bit limited but adequate for the time of day. I heard more choices on the dinner menu. Very friendly staff and attentive throughout the meal.

We had wonderful service for our lunch yesterday. I had the lobster bisque, which tasted very good although was luke warm, and a terrific Greek salad. My girlfriends had the shrimp tacos and lobster roll and both were very pleased with their meals.

Had lunch on the patio. There were only a few yellow jackets that we had to swat away. Friendly attentive staff. The lobster rolls were delicious and the fries were crispy and hot.

Good food. But not amazing. Ceviche was too sour and meat gravy not robust. The meal did not come as described on the menu. Busy weekend and ran out of some foods. The venue can’t be beat and I would return for a different food item.

Food was very similar to what you would find at other establishments within the city. Food was tasty but did not have anything that would make you say - oh I have to be back for that dish, it was exceptional. Service was subpar. Waited 15 minutes to be asked of we would like water or drinks, bread was brought out without plates, when asked for small bread plates waiting 10 mins, actual food orders not taken till about 30ish mins in. Food came to the table at the hour mark and second drink orders that where ordered when food arrived came as we where packing up to leave. Overall 2 hours in restaurant, that was not slammed. Hoping it is just new opening jitters, will try again in a few months hoping the service is figured out. Should hire an experienced service manager who knows how to zone staff.

Reservation for 4:30. Seated and then forgotten about. In the special notes for the reservation I put it was our 24th anniversary. At 5:10 after being left at our table with just the menus. No water no anything we left. I was very upset as my husband is the one that always plans these things. This was my first time and it turned out awful

Server never returned for coffee, ask if we needed anything, ketchup for eg. Selection poor, omelette station never opened, reason given is they couldn't find a table. Very disappointing for $28.00 a plate.

We were a group of 4. After we sat, we ordered drinks and appetizers, after 30 minutes they brought us the wrong appetizers, took them back and another 20 minutes to get the right ones. We noticed the other tables received baskets of bread so we asked and the waitress said they were not complimentary but did bring us a basket of 4 rolls without butter. We ate our appetizers (20 minutes ) at which time we also ordered our meals. 10 minutes after 2 of us ordered a 10oz steak they came back saying they were out, so we opted for the 12oz steak and lobster claw. Another 10 minutes go by and the waitress comes back telling us they are out of the lobster claw but can replace with shrimp. We reluctantly agreed. Our dinners took approx. 45 minutes after that to arrive. Meanwhile, 2 tables of eight that came in 10 minutes after us had already eaten their dinner and left and we still did not have our dinners.
When the food arrived it was good but far too long to arrive. Waitress was nice but 2 hours 45 minutes from start to finish was unacceptable. They gave us each a glass of wine for free to compensate.
And finally to cap it off my wife had ordered " Chicken Fettuccine Pesto Alfredo " . When the bill came I noticed they charged us an additional $4.00 for the chicken.It was CHICKEN Fettuccine Pesto Alfredo. We were not impressed.

My son and I went here to celebrate his birthday. I ordered a small caesar salad while he ordered calamari for an appetizer....the salad was so big I almost couldn't eat the perch I ordered for my main. My son had NY strip steak which came with carrots and baby potatoes. Both meals were abundant and delicious. My son was also given a free piece of cheesecake for his birthday. I highly recommend Harbour House.

The evening was very good. As for the food, I had the perch entree. It was good. They gave you a good portion. Started with an appetizer which was calamari. It was excellent. My wife’s entree was short ribs. When her entree arrived it was a surprise in fact a big surprise. Along with her vegetable string beans the short rib was a huge bone with the meat on it and the gravy. The bone was something that looked like Fred Flintstone would have. It was nothing what short bone entree if you had one before.

It was nice to see that they did a complete renovation. It’s all in white and very bright. They did a great job.

As for the prices. I thought it was a little expensive. Prices did go up. We had 3 people at our table. There was 2 alcoholic drinks,1 appetizer and the main courses. The total was nearly $180 with tip.

Oh when it came to pay on the machine, it’s the first time I had seen the tip start at 18%.

Here is a picture of the short rib dinner.

All in all it still was enjoyable!

My Husband ordered med rare steak, and when they served to him young girl asked for him to check. It was more med well but my Husband said it was ok. She was so kind and wanted to redo but my husband insisted it was ok. Our server Joshua was excellent. Very personable and he too wanted to make sure my husband was ok with it. And he was. Loved our experience.

I enjoyed the patio experience. The waitress was kind, but super busy. Not sure how many big tables she had. It took 45mins just to get our appetizers. The shrimp cocktail came out warm and not on ice and ended up tasting very fishy. Overall a nice restaurant but the food was very very bland. Sure to return for drinks on the patio, not for food.

This rating is not a reflection of our waitress who was friendly, patient, apologetic and worked as best as she could to serve our table. There was not enough staff to adaquately serve the people in the restaurant AND we had a reservation. 1hr to bring 12 drinks out in shifts, another hour for the food, another hour for our bills to get sorted. The food and drink once received was excellent. Difficult to enjoy though when everyone drinking and eating in shifts. Unfortunately will not return despite the beautiful venue and good food.

Reservations were for 4 of us at 7pm and much to my disappointment they were already out of the lobster claw appetizer and my back-up the scallops appetizer - oh well, had the coconut shrimp which was delicious and half order of the lobster roll. Hubby had the oysters which were a nice size and very good according to him. He followed with the Mediterranean chicken which looked awesome and was very good. Our guests shared the calamari and had the haddock and perch dinners. Lots to eat and no complaints, everything was yummy. Austin our waiter was friendly and very accommodating. This was our 2nd visit and we will definitely return to try something new because there is so much to choose from on their menu!
