Seafood & Steakhouse
Milwaukee's Freshest Seafood and Most Spectacular Views
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 fine dining 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.
Harbor House specializes in oysters, selling more than 10,000 each month and offering a different variety each day depending on what’s available and fresh. In addition to fresh fish and seafood options, the menu offers a variety of specialty dishes, from steak and pasta to sandwiches, salads and a signature hamburger. A weekday happy hour features 89-cent oysters and drink specials. Sunday brunch is served buffet-style and features raw bar offerings, salads, desserts, and both breakfast and lunch entrée options.
The kitchen at Harbor House is led by Executive Chef Andrew Fisher; and the restaurant's operations are overseen by General Manager Christian Damiano, Certified Sommelier, past 40 Under 40 award winner, and one of OnMilwaukee.com’s 100 Coolest Milwaukeeans who joined the Harbor House team in 2015 after managing food and beverage experiences at Potawatomi Bingo Casino.
