This is a tough review to write because we are very torn about the place. First off, great building, huge bar to sit at and a bunch of drafts on tap. Second, food was really good, everything came out hot and fresh, very tasty(specially the ribs!) Lastly, the service was dreadfully slow! Mind you we did do the all you can eat option(which is table service) so that might have slowed things down a bit. Also our waitress was very apologetic and paid for one of our drinks. If you go in for a few drinks and a dish off the menu, I don't think you will be disappointed!! We might be back......

Tina and her staff took good care of us again. Food is always good and staff eager to assist, whether you are a single or a group of 20 or more.

Big, fun place with good seafood, reasonable prices, and live music. Really nice spot to chill out in the evenings.

We stopped into Harbor House after a Tigers game to take advantage of their after game beer specials. My wife and I sat down at the bar and the woman tending bar asked if we wanted to see a menu. We took a look and found a wide selection of options all pretty reasonably priced. Pretty soon she was describing the specials with such pride and enthusiasm, as if she made them in her own kitchen, that we decided to order from the all you can eat menu.I ordered the fried shrimp and my wife the ribs. Before we got to the entrees we were served an appetizer, salad, soup, and then came the main course along with our choice of starch. Everything was great. The food had a southern or Cajun quality to it that we really enjoyed. Looking around the large restaurant and bar we realized that almost all of the tables were occupied and that there seemed to be a large percentage of local families, many appeared to be regulars, among the Sunday evening diners. If we lived in Detroit we’d be eating here regularly too!
