This place has a lot of potential. The location is excellent with harbor view and the service was very friendly. Unfortunately, the food is nothing special, very touristy, greasy and somehow disappointing. Cocktails were not that great either. Not sure I would come back.

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.
