We were a tour group staying across the street and this is in a rural area so we ate at the Lighthouse Seafood. The décor is dated and the smell of cigarette smoke was strong. I forgot that some restaurants still have smoking areas. This must have been coming from the bar. They had a few "all you could eat"... More

Family member recommended going for dinner due to experience 10 yrs ago. I was disappointed and he even more. Cigarette smoke plastered over decor that is in need of renovation. Dead potted plants, need I say more. The seafood had potential, but was extremely over cooked. French fries and cole slaw were ok. Service made the meal even less enjoyable.... More

If you come here avoid the bar unless you smoke! The service at the bar is horrendous. I have been here a half times thinking that it might get better, but every time it gets worse.

Caught in an ice storm went here because it's close to our hotel. I had grilled pork chops, a little tough, but good flavor, and my wife had the broiled catfish, which was good. Atmosphere is pretty much lacking, service was quick enough, but our waiter never came back to see how things were and brought us our check while... More

We've stopped here a couple of times over the past 3 years and have been very satisfied with the service. Friendly and prompt are the best description. Generally a complimentary plate of hush-puppies is provided on arrival. Tasty, but fired and greasy. Generally offers fried foods, sandwiches and drinks in a pleasant atmosphere. Food is not great but prices are... More

My wife and I had dinner here, after driving all day. The Lighthouse is near the motel where we stayed. My wife had flounder with popcorn shrimp. I had "all you can eat" catfish. We were both pleased with our dinners, and the service was very good.

Lots of food. Focus is on quantity not on quality. Location is great near several Hotel/Motels. Great service.
