We ordered takeout from here and were delighted by the food and the quick service. They don't take orders over the phone so you have to walk over but it's not a problem. We ordered the salmon burger, "banh mi" style -- it actually comes on a hamburger bun instead of a banh-mi baguette. It was good. The little one... More

We had the green salad entry to start things off. The Grilled Shrimp Vera Cruz dinner was ok. The desert was a simple vanilla ice cream scoop. The service was nice. It was an overall ok meal.

Lobster bisque is to die for. Expensive, but worth it. Hubby had the salmon burger and it's ok. Servers are so nice, good ambience with nice view of the water.

Nice restaurant, overlooking the beautiful San Diego Bay in the heart of Seaport Village in Downtown San Diego. Spectacular view from the restaurant. Delicious food, a little pricey but it's seafood so what do you expect?!?! Fresh and delicious. Loved their raw oysters, just wish they were larger. :) A dozen went fast!!! Ample pd parking in the area, as... More

Dinner was enjoyed by 4 adults and 2 kids. Everybody found something on the regular menu to eat. The kid's menu aimed to please even the most finicky children. They do have extensive fresh fish offerings with choices of sides, or other fish dishes, which I suppose were frozen. There is a complete bar. Hearty bread and butter is served... More

We ate a seafood lunch here recently. The food was average....not bad, but not memorable. The views were lovely and service was great. But the prices were quite high for what you got, and the place is rather run down. The chairs are mismatched and stained...wood scraped, etc. just average overall.

Harbor House was a "must" for us due to the reviews on Tripadvisor, and it certainly did not disappoint. We arrived without a reservation for lunch, and our lovely server Michele showed us to a table by the window with an expansive view of the park and the Bay - and it kept getting better from there! We ordered seafood... More

We stopped in for dinner here after spotting it on a walk the day before. The service was very attentive possibly as it was a fairly slow week night. The bread was fresh and warm. My local simply grilled fish with goat cheese polenta and vegetables but simple but very tasty. My husband enjoyed his paella. The cocktails looked expensive... More

Expensive sit-down restaurant along the San Diego Bay in a very busy shopping area with $15.00 an hour parking. The restaurant validates which reduced our parking fee to $8.00. My husband's cheeseburger was $14.95 ( No fries); my Pear - goat cheese salad was $13.50. I'm gluten- free and had plenty of choices. We drank water with lemon so our... More

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.
