“The best french fries and the best ice cream..”

Harbourlite Restaurant
Ranked #23 of 51 Restaurants in Port Elgin
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 August 2018

I've been been coming here for about 25 years. When I think of vacationing at Port Elgin I think of warm breezes, sand, seagulls, sound of the waves and smell of french fries with vinegar(a personal favorite) Many tourists take a box of french fries back to the beach to share. Late afternoon everyone enjoys going for a stroll along the beach or the harbor, with an ice ream cone in hand while waiting for the sunset. The restaurant is what it is. Nothing fancy but clean. It has the best view in town. I'll be back 2019!!!

This is my go to for breakfast. Bacon and Tomato toasted on white , no lettuce, with a coffee. Or their basic breakfast...bacon, eggs, homefries. They do not screw it up. The coffee is good, the service is order and then take a seat until they call you. Their frenchfries are hand cut and THE BEST!!! Very relaxed place. Ice cream parlor as well. Go for a walk on the dock and look at boats or sit on a bench and people watch. This is a gathering place for many. A landmark.

This is essentially a burger shack at a marina. They serve burgers and fries, fish and chips, hotdogs and a few other things plus ice cream cones. The service is at small town speed but what's the hurry, you are on holiday. I can recommend the hotdog and the fish and chips.

Where to start. Opens at 8 am. Arrive at 8:15am. Order placed. Told of a serious gluten allergy. Didn't seem to care. Took 50 minutes to get BLT and an omelette. Oh ya, no cheese on omelette. So basically it was scrablled egg sandwich. Pathetic.

Oh! Did I say what a Dump! Such an I sore on such a beautiful beach and harbour area!
It would be very nice to have a comfortable water front restaurant to watch the sunset with family or friends!
