Northwest Military Review Reviewed by: Steph DeRosa

I figured Harbor Lights' bar would be the perfect place to achieve both a solid fish meal AND a worthy liquor buzz. So naïve I was, fresh from under a large wheel of Texas tumbleweed, I had never even heard of a clam, much less eaten one. (And no, I'm not talking about eating a bearded clam, perverts.) One simple day in 1996 at the Harbor Lights bar I erased any preconceived notions and downed my very first steamed clam. Delicious and nutritious, it was love at first bite. (Sorry, George Hamilton.) Leather seats, cheesy carpeting, rope lighting, Commencement Bay views, and one of the most spectacular Jim Beam decanter collections imaginable lay upon the innards of this dive bar within a landmark Tacoma restaurant. Legend has it that old Harbor Lights owner secretively and slowly skimmed the liquor out of each and every collectable Jim Beam container displayed in the hovering glass cabinets - making their net worth drop in large amounts.
