Whenever we travel through Reedsport, OR, we try to have a meal at the Harbor Light Family Restaurant. In the past it has usually been to enjoy their delicious breakfasts! Their menu is always inventive and varied; they also list their specials on a huge "blackboard" so there is a LOT to choose from. They offer seafood, smoked meats (chicken, ribs, etc.), sandwiches, pasta, wonderful desserts AND much more! Their food is prepared using the freshest ingredients! Today we stopped for an early dinner and learned that fresh caught chinook was one of the specials, prepared a couple of different ways. I ordered the cedar-planked chinook and my husband ordered his favorite fried oysters. We also shared their "Chowder Supreme." Wow, the chowder was superb, with fresh crab and shrimp added and then topped with cheese which was melted under the broiler. So delicious! When the cedar-planked chinook was placed in front of me I could scarcely believe my eyes. It was a beautiful presentation, as nice as any you might find at a fine restaurant! The salmon was served on the cedar-plank with thin sliced lemons and fresh dill which gave a subtle, delicious flavor to the fish. As my side I ordered the cucumber/spinach salad which was served with a dill/cucumber vinaigrette. We both greatly enjoyed our meals, but unfortunately had no room for their wonderful desserts. Our waitress was friendly and provided excellent service.
Lauree, the owner of Harbor Light, visited with us briefly, which is always enjoyable! (This was in spite of the restaurant being QUITE busy.) She has plenty of help to allow this interaction with customers. She told us that she is working on a new menu that will add some new items to the many popular items they currently offer. We're definitely looking forward to the next time we're able to dine at the Harbor Light Family Restaurant!
