It was a 20 minute wait for a table (we had no reservation), so we sat at the bar. The bartender was spot on with his service of drinks and in taking our dinner order, very friendly too. We both had the Mixed Seafood Grill...More

We liked everything: clam chowder, grilled shrimp, prosciutto wrapped scallops, and grilled butterfish. Service was very good. Only negative was size of prawns. We expected prawns to be large, but these were size of 20 ct shrimp. Menu is a bit pricey.

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.
