“Good Food Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We've found this to be one of our favorite restaurants ever since we ate here in 1970 when it was called Pieces of Eight. While it is a bit pricey, the food is usually very good whether the lunch or the supper offerings. Also good offerings from the bar. Really enjoy the view of Lake Michigan and the Calatrava addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum

“Very Pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Had a great dinning experience at the Harbor House. Of course the location/view is beautiful, but the food was teriffic as well. Wonder if they have the awesome Sunday brunch like the Peices of Eight had??? Definately will return.

“Over-rated!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The location and atmosphere are incredible, but the quality of service and food consistently falls short of what one would expect from the Bartalottas. During my most recent visit, the food was cold. How does that happen at a quality restaurant dedicated to service? It doesn't.

“Best Veiw in Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

If you want to be on the GREAT LAKE and have one magnificent veiw of the lake and the skyline of downtown Milwaukee, this is the place. Prces are high. Food is very good, but expensive. If you don't want to spend the money for dinner. Stop for appetizers and then find a lower cost restaurant elsewhere.
