Dining room and diner-style options

Dining room offers menu or buffet. Servers are excellent. Food is very good in both areas. More casual in diner, yet the dining room is not formal. Each area meets its' agenda.

I rated this place a 1 only because you have to give a rating. We were greeted by the cashier. She explained the difference between the coffee shop and the dining room. We choose the coffee shop (relaxed atmosphere after a long drive). Hostess greeted and sat us. We read the menus and made our dinner selections. The menu had... More

Both the coffee shop and the restaurant are great. The food and the service are both outstanding. I used to live in the area, but now only get there occasionally. I wish I could go there more often.

Well I read the reviews and step into The Lamplighter with a feeling of trepidation. Mostly concerned about the cleanliness comments posted. However I found the place pleasantly clean and the food was really good. We had the Italian sampler as a starter between the two of us - this was good, and we both had different steaks and these...

This establishment is a landmark - some folks swear by it but it has never been one of my local favorites. It's past `dated` and needs a serious facelift. Start with the Coffee Shop and move quickly to the main dinning room - I'm sure this well known family was made enough money over the years to invest in some... More

Attended a concert here. The food was OK, nothing great. the staff was efficient, in fact they were right there to pick up your plates & your glasses. However, there was no water on the tables. Water was &1.00 a bottle & if you wanted a glass you had to go to the bar. When I ask for a glass... More

Visited Saturday night. Looked busy but the dining room had 6 couples. Had very dated, dark decor from 60's or 70's. Non matching chairs. Light above table with panel falling out. Booths missing fabric buttons. Picture of random family member in frame staring at me. No families. Everyone older than 60. Large cobweb next to where my daughter was sitting.... More

We've been going to this restaurant for the past 8 years when we visit the area on our annual drag racing trip. Very nice place to have a good, quiet meal. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express (directly behind the restaurant) and got coupons for Buy 1 Get 1 Free drinks and for $2.50 off an entree and free... More

My wife and I have been going to the Lamplighter since we moved here 5 years ago. Service is friendly and very attentive to there customers. Any food not to the liking of the customer is cheerfully either replaced or taken off the bill. Its a friendly place and you just cant beat it for value and taste. We highly... More
