Nice Portions

The food is decent, and the portions surprised me when compared to the prices. (In a good way!) Service was friendly but definitely not fast, it took close to an hour to get two simple breakfasts, and they weren't busy (most of the other people in the place had their food already). But, overall a... read more

We were in Haines for an afternoon when our Holland America cruise stopped for the day. We toured the town, which was historically so interesting, and decided to stop in the Lighthouse after touring the Hammer Museum. It was mid-afternoon and we were ready for a snack and a drink. I decided on the chowder and it was absolutely fantastic,... More

There were 4 of us that went in for dinner as we heard you get a good portion of fish (halibut) and chips there! The place was not right full but they had only 1 waitress on and she was flying around the place as fast as she could. The food was delicious and you get many pieces of halibut... More

Food was tasty and the service was friendly. Our gluten free traveller was able to find something to eat.

I ordered a salad as as a main course and when and hour later it hadn't been delivered, I cancelled it and left. They did bring me the iced tea that I ordered to have with the salad and had the nerve to charge me for it after that 1 hour wait!

The family and I went to have dinner. From the outside it seemed like a good establishment, even has a great view. We went in and were told to sit where ever we wanted. The waitress had a very sour look upon her face and seemed perturbed to have more customers coming in. We sat ourselves and enjoyed the view... More

Being from New York City, it's easy to be a food snob and make wrong assumptions about the fare offered in small towns. We randomly wandered into the Lighthouse for a late lunch on a very rainy day - not expecting much from this unassuming little local place. . To our surprise, the food really was excellent - not only... More

A group of 4 of us from Whitehorse were in Haines for the weekend and decided to go here for lunch. There were a few other tables, not busy by any means, and we were completely ignored. The server walked around our table and served everyone around us. This isn't the first time I've heard of this here, a group... More
