My wife and I went there for dinner on Friday 11/14/2014. A very nice looking restaurant by the bay. The food does not match the view by any means though. The meal was very disappointing. I probably will not go back any time soon if ever. My wife and I both ordered the Fish and Chips as we wanted to... More

I made a reservation at Harbor House a week before me and my wife's anniversary. I also ordered some roses from an online company to be delivered to the restaurant as we were coming from out of town and I wanted my wife to be surprised. Around two hours before our reservation I received a call from the flower company... More

I really like the location and the view. We were a party of 5 and it was awkward seating on the patio, which isn't so great when the sun is shining through the windows and it is hot out. Opt for inside on a hot day. Food was ok, but the pesto mayo is YUM!

We ate dinner here and sat outside on the deck with just one table. Felt like our own place. We had a great view of the sunset and great place to watch the people below. Our waitress was friendly and nice. She was a local and had lived there all her life. She was helpful with the city and things... More

There were 5 in our party. We sat upstairs outside and had a wonderful sunset view. We sat at the only outdoor table, so we felt like we had a private dining room, which was great. We were there on a Monday night. The service was good and the waiter was friendly. We had a variety of foods. My grilled... More

Our dinner here on a Friday night wasn't much to brag about. Service was slow and average at best. Maybe it was the computer problems they were having. The calamari appetizer was rubbery, and bland. The main courses were not much better, all overcooked, lacking in flavor. Very disappointing considering the prices. Nice view though. We won't be coming back... More

We sat out in the patio seating area, so we had a great view of the water. I had the sea bass, t was one of the specials at the time. The fish was great especially with the sauce that they used. The staff was friendly and periodically checked on us. The only downside was the price. It was a... More

The food here is tourist-expensive, and not necessary. We had the fish tacos (2 tacos $15) and a salad ($16)
