Great view

Only went to the Lighthouse for a pre-dinner drink, great view over the marina and a good place to people watch.

Nothing commendable except the view! Drinks, snacks all run of the mill. The staff was friendly but not overly attentive.

We stopped for a couple of drinks and to enjoy the view. We were not let down. We watch the sun go down with a couple of beers. The prices were very good, staff we're very helpful and the place as extremely clean. On a warm night the breeze was welcome. Excellent. This place is well worth the visit.

We stopped in for a drink at sunset and were not disappointed! The view was incredible. The drinks were also reasonably priced. I thought we might have a hard time finding a seat due to the small size but there were only a handful of couples in the bar. We would highly recommend stopping in for a sunset view!

Great place to have a cold one! The beer and drinks are decently priced. Not cheap, but worth the visit to go up and get a great view of the marina. If you are in the area...a must do!

The view of the mountains and marine was great. The prices were great. The service was very polite and fast. U can take stairs or elevator to top. Restaurants and shops all around marine area. Very safe area day or night.

No access, just sales people trying to get you to tour a timeshare presentation. The building is beautiful from afar,
