“The waffle cone of mashed potatoes really is awesome - - why not go all the way?”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

A savory waffle cone with mashed potatoes, gravy, cheese, bacon and (good) beef brisket? Please and thank you. Also has decent beers on tap. Burgers and sandwiches were interesting. Servers needed a bit more experience, but i think it's the beginning of the tourist season here, so that will likely come with time.

“Tasty vegetarian fare”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I was looking for Kahish's Catch Cafe mentioned in guidebooks - and this is the new incarnation. Very good and they make their own ice cream.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Basic food, basic service. Just an OK place to grab a bite. That said, I don't know if there is anything close by that is better.
Clam chowder was OK. I have had better, but I have had worse.

“Good food, warm service”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Toured the small town of Trinidad looking at the limited options open on an off season Saturday night. Chose the Lighthouse Grill and was very happy. Food was fresh and tasty. Service warm and friendly. Even though we were last ones in the place the staff encouraged us to stay and have some ice cream while they went about cleaning up prior to closing for the night. Would highly recommend.

“Great quick food at family owned cafe”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Simple menu supplemented by some great specials. They make their own ice cream and have their "meals in a cone" will introduce you to some new treats. A favorite with locals. They close at 7 p.m., so plan accordingly.
