I was hungry but not really so when I first reviewed the menu nothing really jumped out. I ordered the mixed seafood boil well just because we were by the ocean. When it was served I was thoroughly impressed. The portion was large and the aroma was delectable. The flavor however topped it all. It was so so delish. Our... More

This place was just what you would expect in a touristy area. Good food, mid-range prices.Service was good we had reservations so we had no wait, I imagine with its location and size, they would have a long wait. If you do have a wait, there are plenty of shops to walk around and visit. Plus you ARE on the... More

Needed to pass a few hours so pulled up to the bar and had a great few hours drinking wine, beer and doing oyster shots (with beer and others with peppe vodka), grilled oysters, raw oyters ,chower, and lobster bisque.

The food here us okay. Nothing outstanding. The lobster bisque was the best at the table. The kids menu includes ice cream but kid drink is an extra $3.95 so get water if you are budget conscious, because OUCH.

No reservations but there were a few tables available at about 7pm on a Sunday night. We asked for outdoor and were told the patio was full but we could have a window seat or sit in the other outdoor area. Saw the latter and opted for it: it was a kind of balcony about 15' by 15' with single... More

Reservations recommended and ready on time. Bartender has a good hand - and the fried oyster appetizer was worth a repeat order. Service was friendly and very attentive.

We got in with no problem on a Friday night even with a baseball game going on. The parking lot for Seaport Village was full so we did have to park quite a ways away. Even though our table was not right on the water, you can still see the bay from every table, which made it a really nice... More

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.
