“Great food and ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

Sit outside, very nice, even if it is chilly because they have heaters.

“Great food and great customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

It's rare to go some place nowadays and find good food and customer service without the super high prices. My boyfriend, 4 year old son, and I went to this place around 11a.m.. We ordered the seafood omlette, spinach and feta omlette, and a calamari taco. The food was awesome! I definitely would recommend you to try this place out. You will not be disappointed. The staff is also very attentive to your needs.

“Unexpected delightful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

On the harbor in Oceanside. We expected a tourist trap but found this surprise. The location, the food and the staff made for a very enjoyable experience. They were accommodating and the food was delicious. The calamari appetizer, the entrees and the deserts were excellent.

The Lighthouse is our new favorite place to eat in Oceanside harbor, The food is really good, the service friendly and fast, and you just can't beat the view of the harbor.

“Sunset-Seafood Sensational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

After a long day at the beach we were told to try the Lighthouse because we wanted seafood from a friend who owns a local restaurant. The Lighthouse is in the Marina on Harbor Dr and we sat on the patio with a view of the boats and the Pacific. We were greeted and sat immediately and the menu was filled with great selections. We started with oyster shooters then had the choice of oysters prepared in several ways. My lady selected the lobster and I had the Cioppino and both were presented and exceeded our expectations. Wine and the sun setting made the evening memorable. It did get a little chilly but effective heaters that blended with the furniture kept us warm as we shared the best Berries & Cream Chocolate Mousse and coffee. We loved this restaurant and we are going back in a week and I live in Arizona.
