Went there for lunch with 5 co-workers the week before Christmas. A beautiful sunny, cold day accentuated the setting right on the lake. As expected, it was busy with large groups at most tables, so the service, although friendly, was very slow. We received our...More

It is a little pricey but is DEFINITELY worth it!! For the price, you surprisingly get very nice sized portions. Everything is just cooked to perfect and the steaks practically melts in your mouth as it explodes with flavor!!

We went to the Harbor House for a birthday dinner. The views are amazing. The meal was very poor. Fish was greasy and overcooked, everyone was served the same veggies. Service was spotty. Huge bill.

Harbor House is open till 10pm on Fridays and as it should take you 17 minutes from Mitchell Airport you'll be fine. Dress code is flexible, though the clientele here tends to dress better than at most places. As long as... More

Harbor House is a bright, spacious New England-style seafood restaurant Milwaukee residents and visitors love, set on the shore of Lake Michigan. The restaurant is a result of a partnership between local businessman and philanthropist Michael Cudahy and The Bartolotta Restaurants. After opening in 2010, Harbor House quickly rose to become one of the city's top restaurants. Harbor House offers a premier lakefront dining experience and the freshest seafood flown in daily from both coasts. The interior features a three-sided bar, a raw bar, an open kitchen and a private dining room available for special events and parties. An outdoor patio features a full bar, Adirondack chairs and unparalleled views of the lake, the Milwaukee Art Museum and Milwaukee's skyline.
