“LIGHTFOOT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This rating is for the service and "Better then Maryland Crab Soup". This was the best crab soup I've every had. Their must be a half a pound of crab meat.

I will usually only have crab cakes or soup at one or two known restaurants but the waiter assured me it was the best he'd ever had (he is also from Maryland). It was and we will return for the soup.

The rest of our meals fell into the better the average but not worth another visit category.

“Gorgeous Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Located in a former bank building, the decor is very unique. Food is always great. Sitting on the patio on a summer evening listening to live music is highly recommended.

“Stuck up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Only went there once for lunch, and just got burgers. They were excellent, but the wait staff seemed very stuck up and in love wiith themselves.

“Great food, and good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Large portions, tasty food, and good service are here at Lightfoot. I had read some of the other reviews about server issues, but we had none. A little pricier than some restaurants, but you will leave satisfied. Also try the drink specials and I highly recommend the Lobster and Shrimp Pasta.
