The Lighthouse Restaurant is located in a large 6000 Square foot structure that was built in the 1920's. The main dining rom is constructed with wood and logs and has a nice, warm and casual atmosphere.We are located 7 miles north of Gardiner off of highway 89 and the restaurant is surrounded by beautiful mountains and is located 1 mile away from the historic natural wonder (The Devil's Slide).

Strange lighthouse decor in Montana, but the food was quite good, and the waiter was new and nice. Shrimp dish was very nice, and hubby had some bison he enjoyed. Lovely drive from Gardiner, beautiful country.

Checked Trip Advisor before travels and had Lighthouse Restaurant on our list when we arrived in Gardiner, MT. Drove down the road to Corwin Springs and could not miss it on the left. We were glad to see that ingredients are locally sourced and organic, and then combined into a very tasty Asian delight. Pleasant meal for two by the... More

We were given high praises for this restaurant and they proved to be accurate. However, don't try to use your GPS to find it. It's about 9 miles out of Gardiner but my GPS kept trying to send me to a spot in town on the main road. We finally got better directions and arrived around 7:00 pm after a... More

A previous reviewer sums up my thoughts--"Have no idea how this place is getting positive ratings. I am a frequent traveller and this was one of the worst meals my husband and I have ever experienced. From the dust-covered fake flowers on the table to soup straight out of a Campbell's can. Perhaps it has changed hands recently? " My... More

At first impression, The Lighthouse may seems a bit out of place: it's all ship and sailing motifs and a thousand miles from any ocean. Then you see the very eclectic menu and wonder what kind of place is this? No two items the same...each dish seems to be from a different country or locale. Turns out, there is a... More

We live locally and put off checking out the Lighthouse restaurant till the night before they closed for the season. That was a big mistake. The food was wonderful, they honored an old coupon we had for a free appetizer.The table settings were very nice and the food was served on hot dishes, important to us all. The dining room... More

We had supper at the Lighthouse...we were encouraged to go by the owners of our cabin, and so glad we went We thought that they closed the last weekend of September for the season, but they stayed open until the last day of the month! Our good fortune! Victor, who is a 5-star chef, took great care of us. He... More

The Lighthouse is one of those happy surprises that a good vacation can bring. Really excellent, flavorful, well-prepared food at great prices. The mac and cheese was a gourmet-style treat. The burgers were really first-rate. Wonderful desserts. I could go on... If this restaurant was in a more populated area it would have a long wait to get in.
