  • "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."

  • "The Lighthouse always offers excellent food and service, with an expansive view across the bay to Ocean City. The dinners for two including wine are a great value. The night we were there, songs by Suzette topped off a perfect family holiday evening."

  • "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!"

  • "This was our first trip to the Lighthouse restaurant and we found the experience well worth the trip. The food and service were excellent and the special price was a nice unexpected surprise. The singer performing during dinner was great, we loved her song selection and voice. We will definitely eat there again."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "This was our first time here for a Thanksgiving Dinner. The food was excellent. They were very very crowded, but still managed to keep up with the timing of our appetizers and the main entree. Really enjoyed our dinner with the beautiful views of Ocean City at night!"

  • "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."

  • "Asparagus so salty I couldn't eat it, broccoli was cooked well but full of garlic. The ahi tuna had a good taste if you could get past the salt. My husband's rib eye was not even a 1/4 of an inch thick. They were very nice but not the best food!"

  • "Located across the bay from the bustling beaches of Ocean City Maryland. The restaurant is located within a golf club setting facing the bay and Ocean City. The view is priceless and worth the trip alone. The restaurant is very plush to create upscale fine dining. You can have lunch on the patio as many returning golfers’ do. The grounds and bay view were spectacular in August. The food was good. We came for Sunday breakfast but I expect the prime time meals would be memorable. At Sunday breakfast the Mimosas were a bargain $3.00. The manager came to our table to make sure all was up to our expectations, as it was. It was quiet and very elegant meal! Glad we went!"

  • "The restaurant was recommended by stay-at-home couch potato, so it had to be special. The view of the Assawoman Bay (the American Indian had no sense of humor?) was outstanding from any table in the restaurant. One note, we were served water and bread rolls, well before the waiter appeared with the menus although he was very timely after that. That said, the 'never ending' bread rolls were outstanding with at least 4 different types. I preferred sun dried tomato over the recommended rye. Each of our party of 5 had a different seafood entry with all expertly cooked, seasoned and served hot. The scalloped potato is a 'must have.' We didn't have room for desert but the free chocolate chip cookie was rated by my wife as 'best ever'. Enjoy!"

  • "If you go to weddings and think you are eating fantastic food then you will greatly enjoy the Lighthouse Sound Restaurant. We ordered Gran Marnier Scallops, Shrimp Cocktail, Soft-Shell Crab Entree. The Scallops were deliciously delicate though we found the Gran Marnier to be intrusive, The Shrimp cocktail, not recommended, was stringy and chewy, and reminded me of frozen raw shrimp you can get from the store and defrost at home. The Crabs were good and well presented. Though again, none of these were groundbreaking. We did enjoy the complimentary cookie offered after our entree and the sorbet before. In summary; its on a golf course, on the bay, it looks nice and the food is adequate. Feels like you're at a wedding without the open bar."
