In all honesty, we didn't even know Lighthouse at Emily's existed until we discovered that Russ Kendall's Smokehouse had burned down and our lunch plans were dashed. We then decided to pull into Lighthouse at Emily's and to say we were delighted is an understatement. We absolutely loved our visit, eating outdoors on the patio next to the river under the sun. It was the perfect day, and the food was amazing. We even loved the way they put cinnamon and sugar around the rim of our Angry Orchard glasses...a discovery to us that we will now copy from here on out! My wife had the smoked salmon melt...SO GOOD...wow! I had a white fish sandwich that was equally wonderful. We can't say enough good things about Lighthouse at Emily's! We can't wait to go back on our next visit.

We had a nice lunch. It was very busy but the service was quick and the meal was tasty. We like to go here for lunch when we are travelling through Two Harbors.

The food was pretty good, a bit disappointed that salad does not come with meal. The service was good, but the food took some time to get to the table.

Nothing fancy; but nicely appointed inside and out with a Lake Superior nautical theme. The stone fireplace would be just the thing needed on a cold winter night. The walls have pictures depicting family history connected with the Lake Superior fishing tradition. We sat inside with a view of the Knife River as it passed under the bridge.
Our server was friendly and attentive. We had the home made tortilla chips with cheese and salsa. They were very good. My wife had the white fish, and I had the herring platter. We shared and we both agreed that the food was excellent. Everything tasted that much better with Castle Danger pale ale.
We will surely go again if we in the area.

We enjoy dining at Emily's. Yesterday was our most recent visit. I had the smoked salmon sandwich, which was very tasty. They have a good selection of beverages also. Besides the food, we like the near lake location and the atmosphere, which is opposite of corporate chain restaurants. The staff is always friendly.
