All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2014."
OnMilwaukee.com readers picked the view from Harbor House as the city's best once again this year, giving the restaurant the title for the fifth straight time. The OnMilwaukee.com editors agree.
It’s hard to argue, too, with its close-up views of Lake Michigan, the U.S. Bank Building, Discovery World and the Milwaukee Art Museum. It's patio is great, too.

Appetizers from the sea include fried clams, salmon rillettes, steamed mussels, crab cakes, fried popcorn shrimp, scallops, calamari and fried oysters. Seafood soups like New England clam chowder and crustacean bisque along with multiple seafood salads are also on the menu.
