We will definitely be back...
I booked this restaurant because we were staying at the hotel. In the Opentable special requests section, I told the restaurant that it was my wife's birthday and that it would be great if they could come out with a small dessert with a candle in it. I wasn't sure if they would actually read my message; however, they did read it and fulfilled my wish with over the top service. The dessert was delicious. The entire meal was delicious... my wife had the "Spice Rubbed Shrimp Fettuccini" and I had the "Shrimp & Corn Crusted Flounder"; both were excellent. Service was excellent. It was a memorable experience thanks to Harbour Lights. We will definitely be back.

Out of the three dishes we
Out of the three dishes we ordered (appetizer and two entrees), two were excellent. One of the entrees was over-salted and seemed a bit too greasy. The service was great and our table had a beautiful view of the harbor.

We were seated promptly and our request for a table with a waterfront view was honored. The food was wonderful and the pace was leisurely...we were not made to feel rushed at all.

Lovely room with sweeping view of St. Michaels Harbor and delicious food to make the experience 100% satisfactory.

We celebrated our 23rd wedding
We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary starting with a glass of delicious champagne. The food was good; I wouldn't say it was great. I had the soft shell crabs. The server said they were sauteed; the but they actually looked and tasted like they were deep fried. They were very crunch and tasty. For me the issue was sauteed vs deep fried. The view was very nice though and the setting was just right for us. Do have the mango sorbet; truly refreshing.

Misses the mark, but not by much.
This restaurant is right on the edge of being spectacular. Salad course was tasty. The main course was wonderful. We ordered a pricey side dish that was lame. Setting and view are idyllic. There were candles (with inexpensive tea lights) on every table and sconces all around with candles, none of which were ever lighted. Who are they saving them for? The live music on the outdoor deck was too loud (and awful) and they left the door open so the music could be heard in the dining room which still had the background music playing at the same time. Staff was having discussions about tables and strategies within earshot. It just seems like no one is really paying any attention to the details.

Excellent Food, Reasonable Price
We walked really far in 100 degree weather to get to this restaurant from the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, but the food made the walk worth while. The service was excellent as well and they offered us the hotel shuttle service to go back to our car which we left at the museum parking lot. I had the Spiced Shrimp and Fettuccine and my friend had the Crab Stuffed Flounder.. both were delicious. The only thing I didn't understand is they had this great view with all the shades pulled down when we arrived. But when I asked them to open them they did. If you plan on going here on foot from the Museum area take the water taxi across the bay because you have to walk all around the harbor which is a long way.

Nice food and atmosphere
We enjoyed our appetizers and main courses. View of the harbor was a plus. Service was a little slow.

Have been to Harbor Lights
Have been to Harbor Lights several time in the past few months. Food is always excellent as is the service.

We had an out of town visitor and decided to take a ride to St. Michaels for the day. On line I found Harbour Lights and I read all of the recommendations and booked a reservation. The view was spectacular and the ambiance inside the restaurant was lovely. I was concerned that the menu was a little small, as I have several dietary restrictions. My husband spotted the ricotta fritatta and thought that it would be perfect for me, and it was very good. Our service was friendly and we were served in a reasonable amount of time. My friend and my husband enjoyed their breakfasts as well and we all loved watching the boats and water activity. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like a relaxed, somewhat upscale breakfast.

Great View and good food
Very nice quiet restaurant with a fantastic view of the water. Nice menu with plenty of seafood options.

The whole experience was very relaxing for me and my wife. Service was great and the sunset view was the deal maker. At no point did we feel the menu price outpaced the taste and quality of the food.

we had a wonderful, romantic
we had a wonderful, romantic dinner at this small (some would call "intimate") restaurant. excellent salmon, delicious crab cake, and great tuna tartare app. the restaurant was not crowded on a chilly, drizzly Friday evening, but our service was excellent. recommended for a quiet night out.

great food and fantastic view
We got a package deal when we booked at Harbour Inn. Not sure how much of a monetary deal it turned out to be, but we did enjoy our appetizers, entrees, and desserts (to go.) The food was delicious and nicely presented. As a vegetarian, I was pleased to be able to selext several side dishes as my entree. The view from the dining room and/or deck is probably the best in St. Michaels.

We had a wonderful experience
We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Great view of harbor and the seafood was very good.
Little bit out of the way from harbor activities. Long walk or cab required from hotel. The night we were there it was not very busy
and our waitress was anxious to finish and go home. She actually informed us that the restaurant could package our desert to go.
Ice Cream to go ??????.
