“Wonderful Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Had dinner with another couple. Have eaten lunch here before, first time for dinner. Everything was excellent. We did the 2 for $65 special (x 2). Four different entrees, each one delicious. Service was top notch. The view is spectacular. Plus they take reservations. We will be back.

“Great find across the bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was a good catch across the bay from bustling beaches of Ocean City Maryland. The restaurant is located within a golf club setting. The dining room faces the bay and Ocean City beyond. The view is priceless and worth the trip alone. The restaurant is very plush to create upscale fine dining. You can have lunch on the patio as many returning golfers’ do. Several local patrons, but no Ocean City beach crowd. This restaurant golf club would be a real winner for a wedding reception or private party. The grounds and bay view were spectacular in August.

The food was good. We came for Sunday breakfast but I expect the prime time meals would be memorable. At Sunday breakfast the Mimosas were a bargain $3.00. The manager came to our table to make sure all was up to our expectations, as it was. It was quiet and very elegant meal!
Glad we went!

“Fantastic. Simply fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Awesome restaurant. My wife and I just enjoyed an excellent dinner here at Lighthouse Sound. We arrived with no preconceptions but the menu quickly proved very appealing. We decided on the Dine-For-Two menu, which allowed for two appetizers, two entrees, two side items, and one dessert, for a couple. We do not usually enjoy such options, but this one was ideal and you can upgrade to any of the higher-cost entrees if you choose to. For all of this, and a full bottle of wine (pick between two whites and two reds), you pay $65...what a deal!

The view is amazing...best view you will find in Ocean City or nearby. The service is excellent...best service you will find in Ocean City or nearby. And the quality of the food...the salads were very good, entrees were excellent, the sides were very good, and the dessert was excellent. The bottle of wine that came with the meal was excellent was well...for being included with a fixed-cost menu, it was excellent. All with excellent service, and a pristine view.

Lighthouse Sound is amazing. It's one of only a few fine dining locations in and around Ocean City, and it heads and tails above the rest. Come for the view, stay for the excellent food, and relish in the awesome value of the dine-for-two menu!

“Great value, good food, nice setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This restaurant is essentially the clubhouse for an upscale golf club. The setting is pleasant, will golf course and Ocean City views, the latter across the sound. But what makes the restaurant special is the excellent old-fashioned quality service, the very good food, and the excellent value for money offered.

We came with a restaurant.com certificate, but they have other specials like complete dinner for 2 for $65, including wine. The food is very well prepared; for instance, my wife's soft shell crab had an excellent remoulade (at least that's what I think you'd call it!) sauce. Very good crab cakes, and crab soup, too. The service was attentive, and they kept throwing in extras, like a sorbet course and chocolate chip cookies. They even had good drink specials. For the price we paid, and the quality of the food and service we received, it would have been impossible to be completely satisfied.

“Extravagant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We went here to use a restaurant.com coupon. It's very upper class restaurant but we like to see how the " other" half lives, every now & then. We both had the French onion soup which was very good. I had gran mariner scallops which were delicious and we both had tender steaks. Worth a visit if only occasionally.
