    Kayla was amazing as both a bartender and a waitress. We sat upstairs inside because it was super hot out. My girls loved their food and the candies pecan pear salad was fabulous and a great match to my mimosa. Thank you for such a beautiful place to have lunch in your harbor.

    We ate between 5 and 6 p.m. when we arrived the restaurant was empty. We waited about 5 minutes before anyone showed up to seat us. No other diners were there during our meal or when we left. The food and drinks were excellent and the waitress was very nice. Will return but I guess no one eats out on Tuesday night early.

    Sorry to say, one of the worst restaurants we had ever eat at from Open Table, it should be removed from the Open Table recommendations. First off, we waited 40 minutes for our dinner, there were only 2 other tables occupied, that should have given it away, then when our orders did finally arrive my wife's salad was ok, but my shrimp and crabmeat was in a small dish that it looked like soup, no sides until we complained about the presentation. Then out came some potatoes, that looked like plaster, succatash, and vegetables. By this time we had had it, we asked for the manager, who at first we were told he wasn't here, then magically appeared out the kitchen dressed like a slob, sweaty, and not ready to deal with our situation, explaining the reason there was nobody upstairs was because everyone was downstairs, well, downstairs was empty when we investigated that one too. After plenty of complaints back and forth he comped our whole dinner and we left. This place is awful, and like earlier said it should be removed from Open Table, it does not meet criteria for your standards.

    We sat upstairs with a glorious view of the harbor through big windows. Rockfish puppies and mini crab cake appetizers were fantastic but the broiled crab cake is one of the best I’ve ever had! There was no filler Service was excellent without being intrusive. Five stars!!

    Harrison's Harbour Lights is a hidden gem in St Michaels! We chose the restaurant for the waterside location despite negative reviews. We enjoyed a delicious dinner outside in a casual setting on a 2nd floor deck. Visit this restaurant for the wonderful food and friendly staff. For fine dining, choose another location. Our waitress was friendly and smiling if a little harried. Even so, she had no qualms with stopping to take a photo for us. Our well-timed meal was served over a 90-minute period. We received frosty, freshly cleaned wine glasses to enjoy our tasty sauvignon blanc. The caprese appetizer was very good. The meals come with preset sides - cole slaw, stewed tomatoes, steamed vegetables, and mashed potatoes. We considered the mesh table top part of the experience - we had to be careful of serving the yummy coleslaw which was overflowing in the bowl - a bit went through the mesh tabletop and just missed our laps. The fish was beyond delicious. I hadn't had a fresh generous serving of flounder in ages. The rockfish was flavourful. The waitress/kitchen accommodated our food intolerances with ease. Overall, our meal was wonderful and our experience a great one! We would absolutely return and recommend this restaurant!

    We had a lovely lunch outside on the deck overlooking the harbor and marina. You couldn't ask for a more pleasant spot. My husband and I shared the crab and avocado appetizer to start. Delicious. Then we both had the crabcakes sandwich. The crabcake was all lump crabmeat with no filler. Exactly what you'd expect in Maryland on the Chesapeake. Overall delicious lunch and picture perfect view.

    We've heard several opinions about the restaurant, some good some not so good. Our dinner was by all standards outstanding. Everything came out hot (one of the negative things we've heard is that food comes out cold) and the food was wonderful. We wish Buddy all the success in the world in this new venture.

    We had dinner there which started out with appetizers then moved on to our entree which was good. The food was good but did not match the price at all. Very disappointing. I’m not sure when the reviews I read were written but it could not have been recently. Wait staff was running around very disorganized/training seemed to be extremely lacking as well as no supervision and no accountability

    It was Talbot County Restaurant Week and we ended up at Harrison Harbor Lights ascot was the only place we could get a reservation. It was a strike of luck as the meal was fantastic. We had the crab cakes which had jumbo size pieces of crab and no filler. Delicious!!! We can’t wait to go back. The best view of the harbor and the lighthouse in St Michaels!

    We obviously went there in the off season as there was only one other couple eating during the entire time we were there. The waiter was very attentive and the food was served fairly quickly (but with no one else to cook for in the dinning room it should be). The ambiance of the Harbor Lights is fabulous with floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the water.

    This restaurant has so much potential. It is newly renovated and situated overlooking the harbor. The menu seems promising, but the food quality and preparation falls short. The servers are friendly but seem poorly trained. The experience was confusing, overall. Nice place, nice location, but disappointing food and inept service. Why?

    Even on a cloudy day, the view of the St. Michaels Harbor from the 2nd flood dining room is spectacular! It is nice to enjoy Harrison's Eastern Shore style food again in this great setting. Arriving for the oyster buffet at its start ensured that the food was fresh, hot, and delicious. Oyster lovers should definitely give this a try! Dexter was attentive and provided excellent service.

    Thanksgiving buffet sounded great. Staff seemed disorganized despite being by reservation only. Advertised foods were there, just not in sufficient quantity. No one kept refreshing what was offered. Turkey for my test very salty. Guest in front of me picked up carving knife & cut off the lamb he wanted, no one came over to offer to cut so I did the same. Pumpkin pie offered for desert was burned. How do you burn a pumpkin pie & yet put it out on the buffet? Setting beautiful over looking marina. Not sure what restaurant or service like more in 'season'.

    The food was good, but poor service took away from the experience. While there was only a four top and our table for 2 when we arrived and a total of 10 in the entire restaurant during dinner, appetizers, drinks and dinner were slow to come out and difficult to find our waitress. For the price, it was disappointing not to have received better service.

    Our server was super nice, on top of everything and made our evening enjoyable, however the food wasn't anything special nor the quality we were hoping for as a dinner at the hotel without needing to go elsewhere. The view is gorgeous too. We would recommend it for a drink or quick bite but not necessarily dinner.
