“Pleasantly surprised and welcomed like family!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

What an amazing time I and my family had while dining here with our two young children. Our server could not have been more welcoming, attentive and helpful the entire time and the food was awesome and well presented. My wife and I agreed that there is no place in Ocean City that could have even attempted to provide such a pleasant dining experience with the atmosphere that this place provides!

To be fair my husband and I have been to Lighthouse Sound several times for dinner and enjoyed wonderfully prepared food. We decided to go for lunch. Chef Ramsey would have had a field day! The place was dirty but the food was worse!!!The onion soup was the worst I have ever eaten. The Maryland crab soup they are so famous for was not fresh, too spicey to eat, the vegetables were soggy, hardly any crab. My crabcake was slapped on a tasteless bun with a huge lettuce leaf sticking out. The crabcake was tasteless and fried on an obviously unclean grill because it was charred on the bottom. The pickle was OK. I did however like the tartar sauce even though I had to ask for it. The coleslaw was old and disgusting...obviously not fresh. My husband's burger was overdone even though he asked for medium rare. The fries were greasy.It is obvious that the the cook has no pride in his work and that management doesn't care. We held Lighthouse Sound to a much higher standard. Very disappointed.

There were 8 of us celebrating a birthday. I suggested Lighthouse Sound Restaurant even tho I had never been there before. We were not disappointed. The view of Ocean City at night was so beautiful but the a full moon was rising & that made the view breathtaking.
The food was wonderful, although the crab cake was over cooked & they took it back & brought another, but it had a lot of filler in it. The veal was extremely tender, others had shrimp scampi & they said it was delicious. We did the "two can dine for $59". It's a great value as the entree selections are many unlike other restaurants that have a deal like this where you limited to maybe 3 selections. Cream of crab soup I was told was the best this person had ever had. The atmosphere if rich but yet casual. Also...the presentation of the food was stunning. Service was great & he couldn't do enough for us. I know we all will be back & I can't wait for Valentines Day dining there.

“Lighthouse Sound ... sound advice!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you are looking for a special place to celebrate, Lighthouse Sound will not disappoint! The view of Ocean City is Spectacular, especially at night! The menu offers a nice variety if seafood and steak dishes which go beyond the ordinary! In the off season, the two can dine for $59 is a great value and includes a bottle of house wine. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive.
