My wife and I had supper there last night. It started off by not getting our drinks, no one around. When I went to the restroom someone asked if I could seat them, told them"I don't work here" , we laughed, and he left. Waited for someone to take my money and bill at the bar, finally just left it... More

This place has great food. I have not had something I didn't like. The prime rib steak sandwich is awesome. The best part is $2 Labatts pint drafts. Have a few before the game and avoid the $9 beers at the ballpark.

They did a great job for it being Mother's Day and game day. We came in after the game and were seated 20 minutes before we were told. We got the Lobster Mac and cheese it was very dry and crab legs that they say were large size and that was a joke. We eat here when ever we want... More

Positives: casual setting, reasonable prices Negatives: inconsistent food preparation, incorrect billing A group of coworkers and I recently finished a project and decided to celebrate over dinner. The Harbor House came highly recommended. I'd seen their building while riding the "People Mover" (elevated train) and thought it looked promising. Stepping inside I found the interior chock full or interesting features.... More

We went there to listen to some music and have a few drinks but the bands that played earlier in the day so that was a bit of a bummer. We ended up ordering a bottle of wine and having steak bites and crabcake appetizers which were fantastic! Our waitress was very pleasant and upbeat even at 2am. We will... More

I have to say we visited on a Monday around 6 and there was not another car in the parking lot. I got worried. Walking in the place is far from elegant by any means. Now I was double worried. Having said that the food was really good, service was outstanding, and I will go back in a heartbeat. Great... More

The Harbor House restaurant downtown Detroit is a nice place to have good food, drinks, with friends and family. You don't need reservations but it is less of a wait if you do. It has a relaxing atmosphere where you can go dressed up or casual you can go after or before a concert or before or after a ball... More

This is an eclectic place that has the feel of an old time spot in the city. The staff was awesome and helpful. The food was dead on and the beer selection was awesome! They had a great blues band on Saturday night and this is a regular occurrence from what I am told!

Love catching the jazz music when it is going on. Haven't had the food, but the staff is pretty friendly and they have a decent selection of beers.
