“Unintentional Visit Proved Very Fortunate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had been across the street being processed in as new volunteers at the local National Forest and we needed a bite.

We didn't get a bite -- We got a humongous sandwich that was juicy, tasty, and to die for. They have a much larger menu and variety than the size of the restaurant would suggest -- we HAVE to RETURN for a dinner meal, and perhaps many more! I'm sure we'll be down in Reedsport regularly at the Forest Service office -- and I'm also sure we'll find occasions to stop for a meal.

By the way -- they have absolutely amazing looking desserts. We were too full after our sandwiches on this occasion but I have got to try their BREAD PUDDING and CARROT CAKE!

“Always good food and great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We are 'locals' to the area and have eaten at Harbor Light many many times. The food is always good, the service is friendly and helpful. For lunch or dinner the basic hamburger, the shrimp Louie are always filling and tasty. The tsunami plate for special occasions for dinner or salmon on the cedar plank are awesome. The variety of desserts is wonderful and generous in portions. Our breakfast favorites are veggie hash browns or when in season, the pumpkin pancakes. The homey atmosphere continues to have gotten more user friendly and though there is sometimes a wait for a table, during the summer months, it is usually a quick and efficient turn around. People seem to come from far and wide to eat at this restaurant and it is very popular year round. We feel lucky to have such a gem in town to return to time and time again.

“Excellent Diner in Reedsport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Coming back from Bandon Dunes golf resort and heading to the Eugene Airport we went here on the basis of earlier reviews and we could not have been more pleased. We had a late breakfast which was excellent but for later dining they had an excellent wine and beer list. This is a small place, so I would recommend reservations in season.

“Best stop in Reedsport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stopped into this place almost as an afterthought having passed through Reedsport many times before. Turned out to be a find. Food was outstanding. The place is a simple building sitting right on Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 38. Looks like an independent roadside coffee shop that you might have seen some 40 years ago. Log cabin façade originally through me off because it looked gimmicky. Clean and comfortable. Great service. Appeals to locals for it's food and service
