Really good food, fresh, original, and delicious. The chef really knows what they are doing. Everyone enjoyed their meals in our group of 7. From the pizza, to the fish, to the desert. Great beers as well. A must stop next time we're there.

Another magical Saturday night at the Harbor House Grille. The service was excellent and the food was even better. Their Chef has wonderfully creative options and you have to leave room for desert!

We dined outside on a warm evening, but wind off the lake gave a slight chill. Bring a sweater or jacket. Wide selection on the menu, and full selection of the local beers. Service was a little spotty, but within an acceptable range. Not cheap,...More
