“GR8 for the price”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

A group of us (20+) went to the Lighthouse, and stopped for lunch on the way out.

it was a buffet, and the salad bar was gr8. Entrees were forms of roasted, Buffalo wing and BBQ chicken wings & thighs, grilled vegis, mac & cheese, potatoes & gravy and pizza. The desert bar had mini ice cream cones that you created and other decadent items I can not detail.

Price was 8.99 for SR including a drink and reasonable. Dinner had Prime rib for $10.99.

The ocean view was amazing

“Ewwh...don't bother”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

When we had Izzy's in the Seattle market, the food was to die for. This place has a killer view, but the food is pretty bad. Not sure how a franchise location can differ so much from the others.

“Good pizza with incredible view”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Would probably have given this a 5 but the place was packed (1pm) and a tour bus had unloaded!! Almost didn't go in but, what the heck, in we went. Got a window seat with a view of the gorgeous Newport beaches, what a sight.

We decided on the buffet-ran out of pizza during the rush. Pizza was good but cold. Had a piece just before we left after the crowd diminished and it was real good with a wonderful crust.
Desert bar-forget that-pudding was empty and the rest was very unappetizing. The buffet also had breakfast entrees; fried chicken with potatoes, gravy, veg etc. Also had Prime Rib. They tried to keep the buffet clean to no avail- too many people. Would recommend not doing the buffet at lunch on a Saturday. Servers were pleasant. I'd go back at a different time of day and inform you of the results. Not the worst experience, just too many people.

“A very nice surprise!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We are not big fans of buffets, but stopped at Izzy's after a long morning of sightseeing, because it was the first place we passed by. Although it was past lunchtime, the buffet was well maintained. The salad bar, though nothing out of the ordinary, was well-stocked and all the veggies were fresh. The number of entrees and sides was somewhat limited (there are more choices at dinner according to their ads on the table), but again, everything seemed fresh, correctly prepared, and tasted fine. They offer several kinds of pizza as well, and this was by far the best pizza I have had at any buffet. The dessert area offered cookies and little cakes, and very yummy cinnamon rolls.

The price is reasonable, the waitstaff very friendly and attentive, and in general, it's a pretty good little place!

“More Than Just A Buffet”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Yes Izzy's is a buffet but it is more than your average buffet. The view is half the experience. It is both beautiful and stunning ( and I am a local !). The buffet was good but a few items stood out. The first being the Artichoke and Pesto pizza. Yummy! The dry rub wings also stood out- flavor and texture were perfect.The "grill" was excellent- prime rib or baby back ribs depending on the day. The desert bar was also good. All in all this is a great value for good food and a great view!
