This place has been around for a long time and has the charm of the days back when. The food was 'ok' not good by far. We had 12 guys in our group, the start was good. Drinks and our orders taken. Drinks and salads came out and served good. When the food orders came out the person serving the... More

The food here is very good - quality ingredients and well presented. A diverse menu - something for everyone - but, given the name, why not get seafood? The atmosphere is not as well lighted as it could be and I suspect the place needs a good cleaning. The huge Tiffany-style light covers at the ceiling are amazing; the original... More

The Harbor house was clean as always and the food was great. For some reason the server was a little slow coming to take our order, but after that everything flowed well. I had lobster tails with a bake potato and soup. I don't recall the name of the soup, but it had shrimp in it. The soup was very... More

I've now eaten there several times and each time I have had really good meals and the service has always been friendly, albeit slightly slow, but as I usually end up there after a baseball or football game, I'm ok with enjoying a beer and taking my time eating. I've tried different menu items each time and have enjoyed them... More

Took my family here for a post wedding dinner. The place was horrible. Between the flies constantly landing on our plates and the waitress taking forever to fulfill the simplest request I struggled not to walk out. But it gets worst! There was no music playing and because of the cold water logged crab legs it was quiet at our... More

This is a tough review to write because we are very torn about the place. First off, great building, huge bar to sit at and a bunch of drafts on tap. Second, food was really good, everything came out hot and fresh, very tasty(specially the ribs!) Lastly, the service was dreadfully slow! Mind you we did do the all you... More

Tina and her staff took good care of us again. Food is always good and staff eager to assist, whether you are a single or a group of 20 or more.

Big, fun place with good seafood, reasonable prices, and live music. Really nice spot to chill out in the evenings.

We stopped into Harbor House after a Tigers game to take advantage of their after game beer specials. My wife and I sat down at the bar and the woman tending bar asked if we wanted to see a menu. We took a look and found a wide selection of options all pretty reasonably priced. Pretty soon she was describing... More
