    Thanks to open table we like to adventure often. When I saw Lighthouse Sound I had never heard of it even though I have been going to Ocean City for over 30 years. It is located just across the bay and it overlooks the Ocean City skyline. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was very tasty! We had the honor of seeing an outdoor wedding take place during our visit. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and family and we will visit again. Do keep in mind that it can be a vibrant place noise wise when weddings are taking place, so if you are looking for quiet intimacy call ahead first to make sure there are no parties or weddings.

    This was our first dining experience at the Lighthouse Sound and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was the last night of our vacation and a very special treat. The food was delicious and the service very good. My husband had the veal and I had the fish special, which was a black sea bass covered in a light sauce with shrimp. We had a perfect table by the windows over looking the water and grounds. We will return on our next trip to the beach.

    We ate at the Lighthouse Sound a few nights ago. We had out of town guests and we were celebrating a birthday. The meal was wonderful and you cannot beat the dining for 2 option. All of us enjoyed the experience here....from the appetizers to the dessert! I would highly recommend Lighthouse Sound. Our server Stephen was outstanding!!!!! We will definitely be going back!!

    Stephen, our waitstaff, was very knowledgeable and steered us into some great choices. We took advantage of the Special $65 for two, which included a bottle of wine, two entrees (from a long list to choose from), two salads of choice and a shared dessert. My husband ordered a stuffed chicken which he enjoyed, I ordered the barramundi fish with Thai overtones. Delicious. House salads very very tasty. Dessert of chocolate bread pudding good also. We'll be back, thank you. Oh yes, the pate of cookies offered as we wound up our evening was such fun and the icing on the cake. Thanks to you all!

    The young inexperienced waiter asked to take our orders but neither he nor the hostess ever presented us with menus . It is an expensive restaurant and we thought it would be fine for a special occasion. The food arrived cold. We had a lot of difficulty finding this waiter so that he could reheat the food. It took 7 or 8 minutes before we could get his attention. It took a long time for him to come back and check on us. I blame the management for lack of training . We Will not be back.

    Overall, Lighthouse Sound was an amazing place to eat. The food was outstanding, and the view was beautiful. From the dining room you could see the city skyline which was amazing. The area is also very secluded so, it was nice and quiet and calm. I would definitely reccomend this place to anyone and I will be returning.

    The restaurant is very quiet (needs a bit more personality) and the scenery is beautiful. The food was good. I did have some issues. My drink took about 15-20 minutes to arrive. My huge issue is that my son has allergies and I felt that this restaurant is not very astute when it comes to allergies. My son had a steak, we explained it should only have salt and pepper, crabmeat was placed on the side (good) but...when the steak arrived, it was topped with a clump of fried onions. At no time were we asked if he is allergic to onions or the batter they used or if it is okay to do that. Personally, this is a restaurant that is nice to visit once and maybe the members of the golf course visit regularly but we probably won't be back.

    Lighthouse sound is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful service. We had 19 people including several children. The children's choices are plentiful and the prices are good. They take reservations for large parties. The food was good with large portions, but a peppery. Hold the pepper and we will return.

    Upon arriving at Lighthouse Sound we were told our table wasn't ready. (We were early for our reservation, so we expected that). We were offered mimosas in the bar area. When we were seated, we were not informed that our server would be with us, nor that it was strictly a buffet. But we were seated near the window, which was perfect! The view is spectacular! Since our server didn't make an appearance, we decided to wonder up to the buffet on our own. The buffett was wonderful with every kind of breakfast food you could possibly want. Finally, when we were finishing our second plate our server appeared and asked if we would like anything to drink. Overall, our food was delicious as usual, and our time there enjoyable!

    We had a lovely Easter Brunch at Lighthouse Sound. Our table was at the window - so our view of the Bay and Ocean City was beautiful. The food was delicious and abundant. Omelet line got a bit long at times ... but it was worth it. Our server was so nice; even stopping to snap some photos of our group. Would DEFINITELY recommend for Brunch!

    I chose this restaurant because of the lovely view of the bay and Ocean City. We were celebrating a birthday. Unfortunatelly the birthday girl had to send back the crab cake she ordered because it was burnt on one side-should never Have been served. Was not much better the 2nd time. Disappointing! No reason for this as they were not busy.

    A great spot for eating some fine food and drinking great wine while looking at the view of Ocean City. Great service and even sorbet between your salad and entree. And, if you eat all your food on your dish (just kidding) you get great fresh baked cookies brought around by the manager. They even have a fixed price dinner with wine for two at a terrific price. Try it you will not be disappointed.

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    We enjoyed our meal after we got over being upset about the pricing of their "two dine for $59" special as we had enjoyed last year, and was still advertised on their website. Now the price is $65, and there was no consideration given to honoring their ad. "We just haven't gotten around to changing it" is not adequate in 2014. But after that we enjoyed the food, in fact it was very good. It is possible to upgrade the special and get other regular entree items, but this is not well described in terms of how much the upgrade will cost. Very confusing.

    We don't usually dine out on V-day but took a chance this year and we're glad we did. The restaurant is in a country club setting with big fireplaces and a live jazz singer. Although the menu was limited because of the holiday, we thought the food was very good. Excellent lobster bisque, interesting crab martini. My husband had the veal chop which he said was very good and i had delicious steak and lobster. They do cook on the rare side as i ordered my steak medium and it came with a cool red center. The real surprise was the platter of chocolate chip cookies they brought around for dessert. All in all, a very pleasant evening.

    Been there a number of times. Food is consistently good and the service and ambience are great. They occasionally have a singer during dinner who is very good. Not too loud and romantic songs. Always serve fresh baked cookie at end of meal. Nice touch. On the last visit, both our entrees were over salted. First time that has happened.

    This was our first time at the Lighthouse and we will definitely come back, especially in the spring/summer and take in the view during sunset. We were impressed the moment we walked into the clubhouse....very spacious, lovely music/vocals coming out of the restaurant (they have live music on the weekends). We opted for the Special which was dinner for 2 for $65 - 2 salads, 2 entrees with one side each, 1 dessert and 1 bottle of wine! Hard to beat! The Lighthouse Salad was very nice complete with walnuts and mandarin orange slices. We both choose the same entrée, Shrimp Scampi over fettuccini with a garlic sauce, very nice. For dessert, we choose the hot brownie with ice cream, awesum!

    Everything but the steak was excellent. It is unfair to compare their steaks to Ruth Chris' but mine did not compare to my own grilling. We got the fixed priced menu and received 1/2 inch thick rib-eyes. Mistake. I don't think any chef can do justice to a thin cut steak. One of the group did get a NY Strip upgrade (1+ inch) and that was apparently good. Two of us thought the rib-eye may have been frozen and tasted "gritty". Potatoes were superb and everything else was very good. (Awesome bread pudding). At the end, I did mention my dissatisfaction to the waitress. The chef nicely sent out another dinner of two fillets but unfortunately the quality was similar. Good effort though. This is my first Open Table restaurant gripe.

    The panoramic views of the bay overlooking Ocean City are wonderful at Lighthouse Sound. However, the food is just average for Sunday brunch or lunch. It was prepared okay, but it is overpriced for what you receive. I have not tried it for dinner in a long time, but would return for drinks and the views.

    We tried this restaurant based on many positive reviews. The waitress was very hard to understand. My mother asked how the soft shell crabs were prepared, the waitress said deep fried. They came with a load of chipotle sauce on top. We had to request another order without sauce. My shrimp scampi had no flavor and 5 small shrimp in a pile of pasta. My husband said his rock fish also had no taste. The sorbet palate cleanser was a nice touch. The key lime pie was tasty, but a very small serving. Bottom line, there is no reason to go back.

    We loved the scenic view of the water and OC lights in the distance. The dining room was spacious-great decor and atmosphere. Our food was excellent-we both had seafood entrees rockfish & crabcake. Both dinners were prepared to perfection. The salads were fresh, unique and the freshly prepared dressings were great. We shared key lime pie for dessert-which was better than some we have had in Florida. We shared a bottle of chilled wine, and found the wine list impressive. The service was impeccable by every member of the staff we interacted with-attentive without being intrusive. Music and entertainer were a nice touch. Overall one of our top five dining experiences-we left knowing we will definitely return.
