Not as good as it used to be.

There have clearly been some changes here; the menu is more limited and a little strange. The service was fine, the atmosphere was fun, but we were disappointed with the food. Downtown Detroit never disappoints, but this meal did.

Gumbo in Detroit? YES! It was really good. The local beer menu was also extensive and the staff was knowledgeable about the different drafts.

Three of us had dinner at the Harbor House Saturday, December 27, prior to the Erykah Badu performance at the Fox. All of us were very pleased with the ambiance (sat in a booth on the bar side of the restaurant); our waiter (#18-- Jose?) was attentive and friendly. Food: I had the crab legs/lobster tail/crab cake combo (delicious). The... More

We went to the harbor house for our 17th anniversary. Our server was Dane and he was a new employee. He was great! Friendly and efficient. The shrimp cocktail was very fresh and yummy. The prime rib was very tasty, I had the smaller portion and my husband ordered the larger portion which was huge. He could not finish it... More

Me and my husband were downtown conducting some business and decided to have lunch, we were parked by Harbor House , so we stopped in . Restaurant was clean, food was good and really economical. It was a lunch special but two people ate for $15 plus tip. Were definitely going back!

We went here to try something different for our 15th Anniversary dinner. We walked in and I admit I was a little leery. There weren't many people there for 7:00pm on a Friday night. The waitress came over right away and took our drink order, brought them right away and explained the all you can eat option we asked about.... More

On the recommendation of our concierge, we waked to the Harbor House from our Hotel. The ambiance is neighborhood casual with old style diner tables and an informal staff. The shrimp and meat combos were both very good. The ribeye was thin but was seasoned very well and cooked as asked. The babyback ribs and shrimp was also very good.... More
