This was a nice place to dine on vacation. The food was very good (Fresh Mako Shark Steak) and a nice quiet atmosphere. I would return on my next visit to Destin.

The Lighthouse Restaurant was where our couple's golf league went for dinner every other Friday night - the waitresses were so friendly and gave us great service. Food was very consistently good and always enjoyed our evenings there. Always a nice experience.

Snotty waitstaff, slow service and mediocre is a kind description of the food. Hard to believe they're still in business. Do yourself a favor and give them a pass.

We ate here with 3 other couples around 8pm and were able to sit outside on the deck and it was a great time. 3 got seafood, 2 got burgers and PO boys. The service was as expected

Stopped here for lunch. They had great food and happy hour drink prices. Especially enjoyed the view of the harbor with boats coming and going from top deck.

We dined here and overall it was an average experience. The service was slow, and the food was average. The value was ok, but overall lots of other better choices in the area.

We have been eating at the Lighthouse for years, even when it was in its previous location. The food is so very, very good. Steak is wonderful and there is a variety of food all perfectly prepared. It is a real treat to eat in a place that shows attention to every detail. Love this place!

This restaurant was always one of our favorites but has apparently gone out of business. Building is closed and phone is no longer in service. If anyone has further information, please advise.
