A quick drive from Wabasha, MN Went on a Monday and just a short wait, but had a drink at the bar and studied the menu. The menu changes and is written out for the evening on the chalk board over the bar. amazing flavors and choices! Our food was so hot and fresh! Portions were plenty, we walked out with leftovers, enough for lunch the next day. Selection of beers and wine were nice, they serve wine too from the local vintage down the road.

Needed to do something a little special. Decided to take a drive around the beautiful lake pepin to harbor view restaurant in pepin wi. Am glad that we decided to go there. Of course reading the reviews helped us to make our decision. Food was very good. Service was great. Was fun watching the trains go by, and the sail boats in the harbour. Plan to go back again. Two thumbs up.

Such a nice find! Delicious food. The cassoulet with spicy lamb sausage and pork tenderloin medallions was amazingly delicious! And the beans, kale, and red & yellow peppers accented the dish beautifully. DEFINATELY would order this again. The black bean soup with corn was equally tasty. The roasted pork tenderloin with ginger peach sauce was amazing! Prepared perfectly. And the accompanying red cabbage was crunchy, not sour. Would DEFINATELY order this again. A very good beer and wine selection. Staff was polite, attentive, friendly. Ample parking. Family atmosphere but children probably might find the restaurant a bit confining. Tables are somewhat closely arranged. Nice view of the harbor and, if you time it right, you can have a front row seat of freight trains rambling down the tracks! Prices were not inexpensive but were fair. DEFINATELY will return when back in the area.

My wife and I had another great meal on Sunday. I have been a customer for many years, and have yet to have a meal that I could make an adverse comment. The service was wonderful, and the kitchen made meals that were not on the daily menu board. I asked for catfish the way Ted (who has been gone for years), and they cheerfully made the meal as they weren't real busy yet. It is a destination restaurant.

This was my second trip to the Harbor View and once again had a wonderful meal. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is fresh and prepared from locally sourced ingredients where possible. The portions are generous and priced to offer a good value. Plus, sitting along the shore of the Mississippi listening to local bands perform while waiting on one's table or with drinks after dinner is a true delight!
