Description: Harbor House is a bright, spacious New England-style seafood restaurant Milwaukee residents and visitors love, set on the shore of Lake Michigan. The restaurant is a result of a partnership between local businessman and philanthropist Michael Cudahy and The Bartolotta Restaurants. After opening in 2010, Harbor House quickly rose to become one of the city's top restaurants. Harbor House offers a premier lakefront dining experience and the freshest seafood flown in daily from both coasts. The interior features a three-sided bar, a raw bar, an open kitchen and a private dining room available for special events and parties. An outdoor patio features a full bar, Adirondack chairs and unparalleled views of the lake, the Milwaukee Art Museum and Milwaukee's skyline.

“Snotty service, minuscule portions.”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Our server ignored us so badly despite giving other tables her full attention. Our food arrived cold. For $32, I received 4 scallops the size of a quarter. Sent the cold food back and they just heated it through - returned with 3 scorching hot tiny scallops. So disappointing for a seafood restaurant. Will not be going back.
