“Great food with Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I loved it! We went for breakfast after we were basically told to leave Armen's Cafe due to allergies and their lack of ability to accommodate but we're so happy we ended up at the lighthouse. We were served by the most warming lady ever with a great sense of humour!

They accommodated our allergies and didn't risk the flavour of their food! It was so tasty and the portions were more than fair! I don't generally take my left over breakfast to go but it was so good I didn't want it to go to waste.

The atmosphere is a little dated but we didn't care since the food and service was so good. We felt like family from the moment we walked in the door and didn't want to leave! I will DEFINITELY be going back there as often as I can!

“The Lighthouse Rest,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We come to this restaurant at least once a week. We enjoy the hot turkey sandwich; the turkey is always fresh and the portion is generous. The reuben sandwich is excellent as well. In fact, all the food is very good and you get good value for your money. The service is always fast and friendly. The owners have recently made renovations: new floors and new bench coverings. It has a very homey atmosphere and we see many customers who are also regulars like us.

“Lighthouse”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The only time I was in this restaurant, it wasn't very clean. The waitress was overy chatty, which interfered with our meal, since we didn't want to be rude and eat while she was talking. She proceeded to sweep up the dirty floor right near us. It wasn't very appetizing.
