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.

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

When we arrived we could tell things were busy. The State Fair was in town and maybe they had not planned for it. One person was waiter, cashier, bartender and bus boy. Serving about 12+ tables made it a nightmare. Just be patient and wait. Really poor management problem in my opinion. He did what he could and a young... More

I had the salmon dinner it was acceptable, but, nothing to write home about. The salad was served at room temperature and had cabbage in it. First lettuce salad I have eaten with cabbage. The wife had fried chicken, it was ok but she called it pigmy chicken due to the size of the pieces of chicken
