Reviewed January 16, 2013

Beautiful location overlooks the water. First Keowee resort restaurant open to the public, making it very convenient to get a great meal close by.

“Went twice, won't do again”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Heard great things about the place. The first experience we had was forgettable. The food is average and over priced. The second time we went I felt safe ordering the specials. The chili seemed to be from a can (hormel)? The Philly cheese burger was even stranger. She ordered the chef salad which was greens with chopped sandwich meat. After receiving the salad she had realized it was the same as what she had a year ago, at least the cook is cosistant. Save a bunch of money and go to the ingles down the street. They sell better food in cans.

“Special Place”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We took our mother here for a lovely birthday lunch! We had grilled trout sandwich which was very good; crab bisque which also tasty; great burgers; and delicious pecan pie and key lime pie. The atmosphere is both nicely decorated, bright with windows providing great views of Lake Keowee and the Blue Ridge mountains beyond; and cozy with a fireplace. Outdoor seating would be great in warmer months. Caesar salad was a disappointment (just mediocre lettuce and dressing). Overall highly recommend.

“Crab Bisque, Crab Bisque, Crab Bisque”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Every time we go to the Lighthouse, we get a bowl of crab bisque. It is excellent. That said, we have never had anything bad at the lighthouse. Fish tacos were also very good.

“Great spot on Lake Keowee!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Visiting from Florida, we rented a boat for the day on Lake Keowee and stopped here for lunch. We pulled up to the boat slips for the restaurant and headed inside. The food was fresh and fantastic, and we would definitely go again. If I lived on this lake, it would be a weekly destination, if not daily!! Great job.
