Harbor Lights Tacoma
We had the best time here. The views were incredible. Our server was just perfect, professional, yet fun. Highly recommend the fish and chips and rhubarb slump if rhubarb is in season. It was a wow.
A little disappointed in the halibut and chips. You always make the best food but you changed the recipe on your halibut. Please bring back the original halibut and chips. Wasn’t impressed with the Panko style. I love the original tempura style.
We really enjoyed our meal. Tasty, and a great view!
Food was not very fresh. Service was good but very loud.
The crab cakes as excellent as it is always. Had the rhubarb slump for dessert. Really good. I will definitely go back. Delicious meal
Nostalgia visit with visiting family - scenery/setting right on water is outstanding!!
Have eaten here many times over the years! Food always good, but not exceptional. Service is adequate / nothing special !
We can always count on Harbor Lights for great food and drinks, fabulous views and excellent service. Which is why we keep coming back.
Great food and service as always.
As always, the food was excellent, especially the clam nectar.
Service, this time around, was only so-so. But we'll be back, for sure.
As always the view, service and food were all wonderful. A wonderful evening, highly recommended.
Our place to go! Great food and service!
Steak was tender and cooked to perfection
Great food and great service! One of our favorite places to go!
The food was delicious and came out hot. Very relaxing atmosphere.
The server could have taken more time with us. Wearing masks muffles what someone is saying. She would walk away and still be talking to us.
Excellent service, view and food! One of our favorite restaurants for years.
Great food, superb service, incomparable view along Commencement Bay/Puget Sound. We will remain steadfast customers as we have been for four decades. Choose Harbor Lights Tacoma!
Old style seafood restaurant. Very good clam diner.
Harbor Lights never disappoints! The service is perfect from the time we walked in the door until we were leaving. The food is always top notch and the drinks are spot on! We will be back for the next special occasion we celebrate!
I have not been to Harbor Lights for some time. It made me quite sad to see what has been done to the restaurant I went to my entire life. The wonderful memoralbilia was gone, the great food was replaced with the standard Anthony's faire, and feeling of being somehere that has great history was gone. I will not be back. I can get that at most any restaurant.
Best dinner experience for my wife, I and my hard-of-hearing dad in years! Delicious food, great value, excellent service as we watched sailboats in and the mountains above Tacoma Bay. Other Ruston Way restaurants have good food too but it was so nice to not have blaring noise at Harbor Lights. This is now our new favorite restaurant. You will see our whole family there again soon.
This is one of our favorite spots. Great food and drinks, great service! Great view!
A lovely experience! We absolutely adored our server, Nancy.
Love this place. Tracy is my favorite waitress! We celebrate all of our special dates here.
I love their food and the view. I have been coming here for years. I had the pan fried oysters, fries, asparagus and side salad. Highly recommend.
One in party had halibut fish & chips. It was awful. Dried out, no flavor. One had fish & chips cod that was good. They were going a good job with Covid restrictions. Wait staff was excellent!
Wonderful server beautiful views of sound. Food was great for the pricing
I'd read the reviews about the clam chowder and while it seems many felt that the version that Harbor Lights makes is sub-standard, I actually enjoyed it. I don't eat dairy and I greatly appreciated that this didn't have any dairy. They could tone down the pepper in it though and this is written by someone who enjoys spice.
The service was excellent!
Harbor Lights is a gem in the rough. Not the newest decor, but the best prices and best food in it's class. And the pan fried oysters are a treat. Just be aware, they're not kidding when they say they make strong drinks.
Great place for a quite romantic birthday celebration. The food was as excellent as the view on a beautiful day.
Always a pleasure to dine at Harbor Lights and enjoy the great views and sunsets along with delicious food. I've been coming to this location since it's inception in the latter 50's.
Everyone enjoyed their meal with the exception of their clam chowder. Many very good chowder recipes. Please find one.
We had reservations and were seated right away, great view, wait staff was attentive, drinks and food were amazing!! Definitely coming back!
Great food and service, our favorite place for a date.
My first visit and I loved it! Food option was great and priced reasonably. I was there for Saturday lunch, and I will definitely try dinner next time.
Great classically prepared food, great quality, and professional service. Ready to go back!
Harbor Lights consistently serves some of the best food in the Puget Sound region. The location overlooking the water is beautiful and serene. We have yet to order something that we don't like and the service is always outstanding. Highly recommend!
Superb wait staff and sanitizer. Talented cooks with excellent preparation and presentation of food. My wife has been coming to Harbor Lights since the late 1950's, and I since 1972. We try to make the 60mi round trip, from Eatonville, once a week for a tasty dinner. Their early bird specials are a really good deal too.
Honestly, I am a little wary of too strong of a recommendation because we do not want the Harbor Lights to fill-up and we get 'COVID occupancy limits' blocked out. Hmmm. Forget this review- try CI Shenanigans next door instead.
As always! Harbor Lights delivered. Excellent food and service
we were seated quickly.Our drinks came quickly.We were able to order and change things a little to our liking.the food and service were outstanding (they were really kind after I bumped over my water.
