“Great setting, terrific service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

This is a great place to have lunch, the scenery is wonderful. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. Only complaint we had is that the place could do with a good cleaning on the outside. The screened in porch made it comfortable to be sitting outside, but you could tell that the exterior of the building need a good pressure cleaning and pain job. That's the only complaint we had!

“Average food - slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The lighthouse Restaurant was recommended to us from some friends. We went there for Lunch at Christmas Eve. The restaurant was not even 25% occupied so we got a nice outside table. Service was not good at all. No refill on the water, long wait to order since we needed a minute longer to decide. The Kids menu is a joke - no prices on the kids menu. Apparently all is about 5 $s exept the shrimps (you get 4 of them with some fires) which is double the price - what we found out when getting the check. For the same money you could have a gotten a regular Lunch item from the menu.
The setting was nice, nice outside deck and nice view - so that made up for the avarage food. Since the guest at the next table complained about the dessert we did not have dessert there.
Plenty of parking around the restaurant available!

“great expectations realized”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We had read the reviews of this establishment & decided to give it a try. It was a Sunday evening & not too busy. There was live entertainment consisting of a musical duet. The hostess promptly greeted us & offered a choice of seating options. After we were seated ,our server appeared to take our drink order & discuss menu options. For appetizers we had ahi tuna & escargot. The tuna was firm & tasty accompanied by a zesty slaw. The escacargot was in a nice puff pastry in a tasty brown sauce. My main course was a shrimp & scallop combo which was cooked in panko bread crumbs. The seafood was plump & juicy & the breadcrumbs added a nice touch. My wife ordered the duck which was somewhat tough & the skin lacked crispness. The accompanying sauce was good & overall her meal was good. Bananas foster for dessert was presented somewhat differently The ice cream was in an edible bowl & the sauce was very good. No whipped cream though. This was an overall very good dining expeience & we'll go back again

“delicious food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

1st night in town and decided to try the Lighthouse. What a pleasant surprise. We arrived around 6 and were able to get a window seat and view the harbor. Our waitress, Shelley, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I had the shrimp and scallops and my companion had the pork chop. The meals were delicious and the service great. By the time we left, the restaurant was filled and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. I would give this restaurant five stars.
