It may be a little pricey at first glance, but it is well worth the price. I completely recommend the fish and the cobbler, but really everything is good. I have never had a bad meal here. there doesn't tend to be a very long wait to be seated, if there is one at all. busy weekends at prime dinner... More

Once in awhile you'll find a small town with a great restaurant. This is one of those gems. Since the 80's when owner Fritz Ehlers (spelling?) was still living we've eaten at the Harbor Haus each time we visited Copper Harbor and were never disappointed. Wonderful Lake Superior view, exceptional food, fun and helpful wait staff who pay great attention... More

Restaurant service and food nowadays is mediocre most of the time. The service and food at the Harbor Haus knocked it out of the park! Make reservations if you can!

Had no reservations and was seated promptly. Sat upstairs and, even though we were not seated at a table by the window, our view of the bay and water was spectacular. Our waitress was prompt and friendly and answered all our questions on the menu items (American and German cuisine). My meal and my husband's meal were served hot and... More

My husband loves to go home to the UP to visit family. I always insist that we make a side trip to Copper Harbor to eat at Harbor Haus. It is, by far, the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. For my job, I have traveled all over North America and eaten at some of the finest restaurants, but... More

Good Food with a harbor view. The Harbor Haus resturant is a German resturant with several dishes that go beyond german with reasonable prices. We really enjoyed the fish dishes as well as the german. They handled a group of 10 and it was a great family gathering space.

Went to Harbor Haus with friends on a color tour. The staff was great. They don't serve dinner til after 4:00 and seeing as though it was 3:15 we decided to wait. Had appetizers in the bar area then moved to dining. Everything was perfect right down to the goodbyes when we left.

What a view! Right on Lake Superior with a great view of the Copper Harbor Lighthouse. A ship even passed through and the staff has binoculars to check it out. The food was to die for! My hubby and I both had whitefish. His was bacon wrapped and plank grilled, very yummy. My mine was Griddle Seared Lake Superior Whitefish... More

We were there on a Tuesday night and had great cocktails to start. Very nice waitress. I had an appetizer- crab stuffed risotto balls = superb with a very fresh rosemary. My husband had pan speared whitefish and it was cooked perfectly. Delicious all around

I've been going to the Harbor Haus for years. It recently changed hands and I must say, the new owners certainly know how to make dining out an all around enjoyable event! The staff was wonderful. The view was beautiful. The establishment was clean, and the food was GREAT!
