Food is great, well presented and they have great prices during Happy Hour. We ordered Lobster Bisque, calamari and a margarita flat bread to share. The atmosphere is nice, you can see Lake Erie with a bit of the sunset glowing in the window. Also, there is a "patio" that trtches over the lake where you can look down into... More

Don's Lighthouse is an iconic building that has had a restaurant in it for over 100 years. About 15 years ago its interior was redesigned from one large, high-ceilinged dining room to a U-shaped, low-ceilinged room with much of the kitchen and bar in the middle. Thus, only a small portion of the restaurant retains the original restaurant's famous high... More

A friend took me here for dinner and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. The lounge has 1/2 priced appetizers on week nights which was not only a great bargain, but were delicious. We were placed in a booth with a screaming toddler behind us and the waitress promptly moved us to a quieter part of... More

I have been here before and asked to be taken back for my birthday. I was not disappointed! Our server was great! She was able to help me with a wine decision and it was a good one! I had the Chilean Sea Bass and my husband had the Tuna. Both were so good! I have an allergy so I... More

I have wanted to go here for maybe 15+years. I knew it would be a little more as far as cost. With that being said I kinda expected more. Our server did ok but ok should be for an ave. place. If your going to charge as much you would maybe expect better service. The food was good but not... More

This was my very first visit to Don's Lighthouse on 8/23/14 and I will NEVER return there again. The service was horrible and when it was reported to the manger on duty she had an instant attitude & came across as being very defensive. It's obvious the female server told her of the situation before she came to our table... More

Crab cakes were crusty and slightly burned Husbands burger was over cooked - came with no cheese and they said it needed to be Asked for separately. Happy hour seemed like a good deal

Thoroughly enjoyed the food. Service was ok, nothing special. Will be back though as food really was good. We had French onion soup, calamari, steak & lobster tail, and the Delmonico steak, all were excellent.
