Harbor Lights allows you to arrive by boat and dock next to the restaurant which is unusual for the area. The food and service are terrific with a good variety of seafood choices a good wine list.

We visited this place for the third time, but it was the first time we sat outside on the terrace overlooking the harbor. Importantly, Sebastien, the Maitré D reassured us that they now accommodate more boats on their previously very limited dock. My wife had...More

A beautiful summer evening dining on the water’s edge. Excellent food choice and terrific service. Everything was delicious. Reasonable prices. As a bonus. An old school ice cream place shares the parking lot and another right down the street. See pics.
