“Good Place For Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

To early to book into the accommodation on Sanibel Island so decided to stop for lunch after a long drive. The Lighthouse Restaurant was a convenient place to stop. It was our first visit and had no previous knowledge of the restaurant. We sat at an outside table over looking the water. The outside area is netted which protects the dinning area but does not spoil the view. Really enjoyed the grouper sandwich and excellent glass of red wine. The staff are helpful and friendly. When the check arrived we were pleasantly surprised.

“Nice food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Ate here with my wife and two friends, I had Swordfish Oscar which was $30 but to then add $3 for a baked potato was unecessary. My wife had Herb Salmon which she enjoyed but at $24 was plenty. The service was very good and the setting outside overlooking the marina was very nice and we also enjoyed a very pretty sunset.
Would not put this high on my list of memorable restaurants and have eaten as well if not better for a lot less money.j

“Great location, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Say hi to Matt at the bar, and enjoy app's, lunch or dinner (inside or outside). We frequent this restaurant often because of the excellent service, the great food and the location (near Shell Point). Have had lobster bisque, chicken caesar salads, shrimp/zucchini app, lamb chops, prime rib, grouper sandwich, fettucini alfredo, and other fish specials. All were delicious!

“Cold service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Champagne not really cold, meat not good grilled, in general very poor. The best the live music. Outdoors smelling the kitchen, better inside. I will never go back. Better in the Marriott hotel.

“Very good food and a wonderful view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

My wife and I had dinner here on a Sunday night in September and really enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. Our server Ryan was informative and professional with a good knowledge of the menu and specials.
It was off season, so the prime rib, which was one of the reasons for trying out the Lighthouse was not being offered. I opted instead for the duck and my wife had the lamb chops after we started with a Caesar salad. Both our meals were prepared and served as ordered and were most enjoyable. We had a table inside by the window and watched the sunset.
We definitely will revisit next time in the Fort Myers area.
