i love this place, they have the best fish and chips i've ever had, the decor reminds me of the old really fine restaurants in detroit, where the food is the best.
My favorite restaurant on the waterfront!! – Harbor Lights is my absolute FAVORITE place for Steamed Clams Bordelaise! My husband and I usually start with a Crab Cocktail and usually share a bucket of clams! Most of the time we end up unable to finish them, but they are gooood! Another great suggestion is the Fried Crab Legs...delicious! But...if you plan to have them call ahead of time to reserve them because they sell out fast! The seafood is always fresh and always good! I have never walked away hungry and the menu is prices accordingly. The waitstaff is kind and courteous. I'm surprised at what Mike TD had to say in his review. Must have caught them on a bad day! Who knows? If you have reservations, you usually get in and seated in a timely manner. Yes, the decor may be a bit outdated, but it's the Harbor Lights I've always known. Besides, who's REALLY there for the decor? There's a gorgeous view of Commencement Bay!
One out of five stars – While our experience at other Anthony's restaurants has been generally good, Harbor Lights, not so much. The service was slow even though there were very few people there. The hostess and server were not at all attentive or friendly and there were long waits for everything.
The food was poor in all respects, from presentation to taste and quality. The portions were very small, over cooked and well over priced. Most of the food was similar to something you might find in the frozen food section of the grocery store.
The steamed clams were not worth ordering. Very poor.
The decor is dated, worn out and dirty.
When you come upon Harbor Lights, keep going. There are several other restaurants in the area with much better food and service.
