I have been to this restaurant a few times a year when i come out to Tacoma. I have never been disappointed with their salmon. Even tho they have changed hands, the inside of the restaurant has been updated (no more button-tucked red leather boothes), the place still served delicious salmon dishes. Sept 11th, 2013 we arrived to see the new updates of the older restaurant that i remember. They have an amazing salmon-topped salad that has beet shavings and caramelized onions, cranberries and nuts in the salad along with a fresh piece of salmon.. - MORE than enough and DIVINE!! My companion had a shrimp salad (tiny salad shrimp with a few other sauces in the dish - also VERY GOOD! - We ate in the bar and had a fabbo view as well, so that was a great afternoon. We went to Harbor Lights 5 days later, and ate a 4-course dinner, yet again, delicious. My companion had the clam chowder - a clear broth we were told that had been a restaurant favorite for 50 years. He loved it.. a caesar salad, a main course of roasted sea prawns, with a savory roasted red pepper over light fluffy rice with pistachios and cranberries and sweet peas. I had the shrimp cocktail with caesar salad, and a main course of fresh salmon with the same amazing rice and sweet peas.. They have a "jar pie" - a disassembled pie with loose graham crackers in the bottom of a 2 oz mason jar with coconut cream and whipped cream with toasted coconut on top.. perfect few bites for one person! .. They did serve a basket of fresh hot bread.. Great service, a view of the sound and a seagull with perfect manners outside our picture window... I have always loved this restaurant. Altho the ambiance has left for the cold feeling of glass and metal, their chefs have always known how to make a beautiful dinner. LOVED it!!
