“No view at new location.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant has moved and no longer has the view as mentioned in the two November reviews. The restaurant building sits in the parking lot of the Chattaqua Lodge facility, several blocks north of the main traffic light in Long Beach.

The food is average, nice portion size, good variety in the menu, and the service is warm and friendly. Nothing special for the atmosphere or facility. Good restaurants in Long Beach are hard to fine. This one is OK. There are 3 award winning and nice dining experiences in Seaview so if you are looking for quality food I would check one of those out. But if you are happy with a good choice of average local food then the Lightship is fine.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The views from this restaurant are great! Big portion sizes and tasted fresh and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The prices were one of the highest in the area...but the views and food were worth it.

“Use to be great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Establishment has been in the community for numerous years and has always managed to provide an excellent meal for a reasonable price. It has gone through several management changes over the years but is still satisfactory, especially if you desire a scenic view while dining. Service is average.

“Interesting Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We could not find a good place to eat that was not packed with people on the main drag and saw a sign for the Lightship. We went in through the bar entrance and had our meal there. The food was OK, big portions, and the waitress was very nice. Lots of tv's with sports on and some fans, so if you like that this may be the place for you. We got into a good natured argument with some Oregon fans as they were playing a team we like. I think they sprained an ankle getting on the Ducks bandwagon, but that may be a story for another day. If you go to the bar, be sure to say hi to Freddy!

“Hard to find, but worth the hunt.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

The Lightship moved in March, 2012, so we had to find the new location. We loved the steamed clams and pan-fried oysters. Service was great, food was delicious, and prices a little higher than we like but within the range of other restaurants. The atmosphere was nothing special, but we REALLY enjoyed our food.
