We don’t strive to be the biggest…
We strive to be the BEST!!
We are a family owned, hands-on business. We are small and we like it that way! We offer a warm & welcoming space where our staff strive to create an intimate dining experience for our guests. Because of our size, we can customize our menu to offer the best of the season. We shop locally & regionally for ingredients at the peak of quality and flavor. We are passionate about what we do here at Harbor House Grille and look forward to sharing that passion with you!
Eco – community Statement
Growing up in Grand Marais, we recognize it as a special place and do all that we can to preserve its beauty. We reduce our use of petroleum based products whenever possible. We recycle and compost as much as possible. We collect rainwater and use it to water our gardens, where we grow many of the herbs we use in the dishes on our menus. We invested in our building making many improvements to make it energy efficient and decrease our carbon footprint. We invest in our community by actively supporting many local efforts. We invest in our people by providing a caring and warm environment to share our real food, served by real people to create real connections. Come join our table!
Harbor House Grille is a small restaurant, with limited seating. We provide an intimate and unique dining experience for our dining guests. We welcome walk in seating and for the convenience of our guests, will accommodate reservations as much as possible. A reservation provides a commitment on our part to accommodate your group at or near (within 15 minutes) the reserved time with a table of our choosing. Even though we will do our utmost to accommodate specific table requests, no specific table guarantees will be made. So we may afford this dining experience for all guests, Harbor House Grille needs and appreciates your commitment to honoring your dining reservation by arriving on time and with the specified number of diners.
Large Party Policy
Large party reservations (7 or more) are sometimes difficult to accommodate, given the size of our restaurant. A large party reservation requires a credit card to reserve. This information will be kept secure and only charged in the event of a now show or cancellation without proper notification. If you need to change or cancel your reservation, a 10 minute per person notification is required. Notification less than this will result in a $25 per seat charge.
Reservation Timing Policy
Parties that are late for their reservation are given 10 minutes before we call the phone number on file to ascertain arrival status. Given the limited seating of our restaurant, 15 minutes late with no contact will void your reservation. Please understand, this is solely due to the size and seating capacity of our restaurant. If you are running late, we urge you to contact us so we can make our best effort to accommodate you and your party. Again, due to our limited space and demand, a “No Call” and/or “No Show” for any large party (7 or more) will result in a $25 per seat charge. At our discretion, we may charge for individual no show diners of large parties, if proper notification (30 minutes or more) is not afforded us.
Separate checks can be accommodated, however, please understand much more time is required to process each guest check and separate payment. Reducing the number of checks as much as possible, is appreciated.
We do allow guests to bring in their own wine with the exception of any wines on our wine list. There is a corkage fee of $20 per bottle.
Guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions should inform their server at the beginning of the meal, prior to ordering. Please discuss these allergies or restrictions with your server in detail so your meal may be adjusted, if needed. Any adjustments may incur a charge, to be determined by the chef or manager.
Any prepared foods brought into Harbor House Grille will incur a $5 per plate charge.
All parties of 8 or more will have an automatic gratuity of 20% added to the final bill.
Policies are subject to change without notice
