“Fun atmosphere”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

The night we were there it was a fun atmosphere. There was a live musician and he was pretty good. The food was ok and the service was really slow though.

Thank melannwolff

“Best Spot on the Lake”
Reviewed July 19, 2009

The food at the Harbor House is good but probably wouldn't bring you back on its own merit. What will do that is the restaurant itself. I think that this is currenty the only restaurant on the lake and is situated in the Collin Park Marina. They have indoor (air-conditioned) and outdoor seating and courtesy slips for boaters to pull up and moor their boats while they slip inside for a drink or a meal. The pretty young girls that waited on us were very nice and seemed to really enjoy their work.

We sat on the ouside and watched the boats come and go from the marina and enjoyed our meal. The waitress kept us in cola well. I had a crispy chicken salad and my husband had a burger. They were both okay but nothing special. Hamburger patties are on the thin side and look pre-formed. The chicken strips in the salad seemed on the thin side too. But it's no so much about the food as it is the setting. This is a great spot to sit and veg on the lake. Collin Park also has beach swimming, volley ball courts, camping and jet ski/boat rentals all on the peninsula around where this restaurant is.

Overall, this qualifies as the best spot on the lake.
