We had a very nice dinner here in July. The weather was cold and windy, so we had to sit inside. It is small inside and tables are close together, although it didn't seem too bad once you were seated. The food is fresh and there are some different combinations-a little cutting edge. Prices were reasonable for what we ordered.

spent a week in Grand Marais and ate at Harbor House. It is a very walkable town and we walked from our hotel. I had the Lake Superior whitefish grilled and it was excellent. My husband had the steak and it was cooked excellent as well. Nicely grilled and plated with seasonal vegetables, an arugula salad. They serve fresh bread... More

Our family has now eaten here about 5 times. This includes lunches and dinners, including with very young children. The food is consistently amazing!! We have had great fish, salads, soups, pastas, sandwiches... absolutely everything on the menu is excellent! The ambience is also great. By far the best "date night" spot in Grand Marais. It boggles my mind that... More

We'll start with Nicholina (hopefully spelling is right) Great server with all staff chipping in to ensure water glass didn't reach the bottom. Very cheerful and helpful. The introduction was pleasant upon our arrival. Note: restaurant was full upon our arrival so that is a good sign even though we arrived late to dine. Beautiful location of the bay but... More

We arrived at 5 PM on a Sunday evening. The weather was constantly changing, drizzling, sunshine, dramatic clouds, strong wind changing to light breezes. We decided to sit at a sheltered table on the porch, where we could see the harbor and when our server arrived, she took our order and said if we got cold, there was a rack... More

Great food, great view, great experience -- every time I eat there. It's one of my "go to places". I highly recommend the Harbor House.

The walleye fingers we ordered were the best walleye fingers I've ever ate in my entire life, they were SO good. A+. But only on that. -Our food took over an hour, other tables who got there 20-30 minutes after us got their food before us. We only ordered 3 things and were on a time crunch. Food came out... More

We have visited Grand Marais a couple times and when we are on vacation we like to try restaurants that have a someone different menu, not just burgers and fries. This restaurant had a great wide selection of menu items from salad, burgers, unique sandwiches, steak and shrimp. The prices are fair and the food that we had on that... More

We ate at this restaurant in June while traveling to the North Shore. We had many locals recommend this restaurant. While it is small, the menu choices are good and the prices reasonable. The restaurant is located in a picturesque house well decorated. It is not located on the water but, it located on the main road.

Reply to"Missy's" review from a customer who was there at the same time. Thursday July 9, 2014 Bottom line - the food is priced accurately, the food is Fresh, and when you send your food back, maybe your husband should not have been drunk from the three doubles he slammed back in less than half an hour. In fact the... More
