Harbor Lights Reopens Tomorrow After Remodel

Tacoma’s beloved Harbor Lights is reopening tomorrow, Friday, April 19, at 11 a.m. They are not accepting reservations for this weekend, but will be seating on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations will once again be accepted starting April 22.

The Ruston Way restaurant, which has been in operation for 54 years, closed for a facelift on March 11. Expect larger windows for a better view of the water, new kitchen equipment, updated bathrooms, new tables, and paint.

Harbor Lights serves one of the stiffest drinks in Tacoma, and has a killer bucket of steamer clams. Go there for classic seafood, steak and burgers with a view and a rich history. The remodel is not all that’s new — check out their updated lunch and dinner menus here.
