We arrived 15 minutes before the restaurant was due to closed,having spent a little longer in the bar up the road than intended, but were seated and the staff gave no impression whatsoever that we had inconvenienced them - my quesadilla was delicious, and my friend's fried chicken was very tasty also - just what we needed.

Went here on Labor Day Monday as many other restaurants were closed. It was too bad as this place was terrible. The service was friendly and that is were the good stops. My wife had chicken fingers. Theses were right out of a grocery store brand box of kids chicken fingers. I had the Alaska fish and chips. Overly battered... More

Property is a bit dated but comfortable. We were able to choose a seat and sit close to the window with a magnificent view. (This alone is enough to make me overlook some things and why I gave it a four star) Service was poor, I had to ask for side plates, cutlery and napkins for our messy apps. Prices... More

The Lighthouse was busy, and the service was slow; however, the sandwich I ordered was just right. The tables and chairs are very dated, carpet isn't too clean, but the view is amazing - right over the Haines harbor.

This restaurant is a good place for a reasonably priced meal. Though not exactly fancy, the food is better than average and the service friendly. And then there is the view of the Haines Small Boat Harbour... Stop by for a beverage or a bite to eat and enjoy the historic photos inside the restaurant!

Nice views across the water, but very slow, rude and stressed staff. The food was good when it finally came.

Two visits. Hamburger and fries the first visit, reuben and fries the next. YUMMY. Nice size servings....lots of meat and cheese on my rueben. There was a cruise ship in harbor so it was very busy and we had to wait. It was worth it.

Just a bad fish meal (fish and chips, their specialty& pricy) Fish quit dry, & chewy! Fries just average cut strips. Meal was early dinner, 5:15. Maybe cook wasn't up to speed. Server never showed after serving meal until she brought check, then didn't ask how I like meal. However, I did mention condition of meal and she said: I'll... More
