I enjoyed my meal at Harbor House but thought it was a little pricey. The staff was very courteous and I received prompt service. Had a table with a nice view of the bay.

Had a great lunch of lobster and shrimp roll, New England clam chowder. Try the spicy curry mussels and french fries, really good. My wife had what she calls, the Best Fish n Chips, ever.

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.
