About Harbor House

Local philanthropist Michael Cudahy and restaurateur Joe Bartolotta have teamed up to create "Harbor House," in the former Pieces of Eight location on Milwaukee's lakefront.

Scheduled to open in early July, 2010, Harbor House will offer fine dining with an emphasis on fresh seafood and steaks, in an atmosphere reminiscent of a New England waterfront.

The restaurant will feature a large main bar, a raw bar, indoor and outdoor seating along with space for private and catered events.
