Stopped here for dinner mid-January. It was rather chilly however even the enclosed deck was comfortable. The views were spectacular and watching the sunset was icing on the cake. The batter dipped pickles with chipotle aioli were delicious! The crab cakes meaty and succulent. Just the right amount of breading and filler. The crab meat was plentiful and chunky! The... More

The bartender Haley made us an awesome bloody mary. And the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp appetizer was incredible. Make sure you have some bread to soak up all of that yummy sauce.

Stopped in for drinks and light snack while at Seaport Village. The most notable thing about this venue is the view. Happy Hour prices seemed expensive and the food was average, nothing special or worth recommending. Nice view and the service was fine however, there are better options within walking distance

We decided to eat here for the view and for the seafood. We were seated so we had a nice view of the water. The seafood was okay but not exciting. The menu did not have a large selection to choose from. The service was excellent though and I would return to try it again just for that reason.

The atmosphere is a mix of casual and fine dining- almost confusing. The view was nice, but not amazing- half is the ocean, the other half is a parking lot... I was excited for fresh fish and I ordered the sea bass grilled. It came with red potatoes that were too dry to eat, and broccoli slaw that was fine,... More

The food was good but nothing above average. We both had a seafood combo (which was one of the cheaper entree items starting at $31). It consisted of portions of salmon, the daily fish special which was sea bass, and some shrimp with a little stuffed crab. Will probably skip next time round in San Diego and try another seafood...

My wife and I had lunch here on a Thursday in January 2017. The interior (dark wood decor) is attractive and the views are great. She order fish and chips, which were very good. I ordered she crab soup (tasted just average) and salad. I would go back here again. We liked it.

We have been trying out several restaurants around the San Diego area and Harbor House is a good option. It is expensive, but the food is good quality. We would enjoyed another type of bread to begin the meal other than sour dough, but it appeared to be the only option. The steak was somewhat dry. The best part of... More

Beautiful setting right on the water in Seaport Village. Great food presented beautifully. Not cheap - but worth the $$

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.
