Harbor House Restaurant Review

: For those who disdain all-you-can-eat experiences, try the concept at Detroit's Harbor House, a family-owned restaurant located in an historic building in the entertainment district. The Mighion family renovated the 1905 brick structure; now, with its stained glass windows and 50-foot mahogany bar, there's a touch of class to the bustling setting. Adding to the appeal, you can order one of the all-you-can-eat items first, followed by a different selection. What's more, the menu offers creative twists. You may know about flaming saganaki, but have you ever had flaming green tomato saganaki? (We thought not, unless you've been here before.) The stacked fried green tomatoes and crab cake is flamed at the table with Bacardi 151. There's also a live one-pound lobster dinner on weekends for $14.95. The wine selection is fairly limited. Watch for jazz on Wednesdays and Saturdays and karaoke on Fridays.
