Upscale seafood at reasonable prices! The seating is well laid out with lots of room between tables and the service is excellent! Not too loud. Very pleasurable.

The Harbor House opened in 1980, and serves fresh fish, shellfish, premium steaks and local draft beers. We offer informal dining upstairs and on the outside decks as well as tablecloth/quiet dining downstairs. Come and enjoy our great city and harbor views. Walking distance from the San Diego Convention Center, we are an ideal spot for banquets and private events.
