Just the kind of place we like for breakfast on the road. We had omelets, but the menu includes things like steak & eggs, biscuits & gravy, etc. The omelets were tasty and fluffy.

I'm always skeptical of breakfast joints in tourist towns. Harbor house was recommended to us, and I was very happy. Tasty food, wildly varied menu from pancakes to funky There is something for everyone. Go. Eat. Enjoy.

The food here is like home-cooked, great flavor and varied selections. The service was good, servers courteous, friendly, and hellful. We sat outside on patio and enjoyed a nice breeze. The biscuits and gravy were perfect and breakfast burrito yummy.
