Stopped in for a late dinner after fishing for halibut all day. Caught some salmon but no halibut. The special was halibut Neptune so couldn't resist. VERY impressive meal. Fish done perfectly, veggies added colour and class, presentation awesome , sauce nailed it. Highly recommended...More

Dad and I each had a different omelet and we both devoured our platters full of food. The service was excellent and to top it off we had a nice window table looking out over the town and the harbour.

My husband and I shared the fisherman's platter for two, and it was fresh and delicious. It included a whole Dungeness crab, a wild Pacific salmon fillet, an Alaskan halibut fillet, clams, mussels, bacon-wrapped scallops, shrimp, fried oysters, and sides of vegetables, rice, and potatoes....More

Food was very good here both times we had dinner. Service depended on who was working at the time--one night it was great, one night it was ok. Would go there again without hesitation.

Stayed in Port Mac for a couple of days and had dinner twice at the Northern Lights. Both nights the food was good and good service. Definitely the restaurant to go to while in Port Mac.

Because we stayed in the Haida Way Inn, we heard of this nice restaurant. The meals were delicious and the service was also great! We would go there again, when visiting Port McNeill again!

The halibut dinner I enjoyed at Northern Lights was by far one of the best seafood entrees I have had in along time. My partner had a seafood pasta dish that he said was absolutely delicious as well. Normally we share - but neither one...More
