    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.

    You can't argue with the prices. They have a deal....for $65, two people choose a salad or soup, entree, side, and you get a dessert to share, PLUS, they throw in a bottle of wine! We actually didn't take the deal, but it gives you many choices. However....we ordered our first choice of wine, they were out. Ordered a second choice, didn't have that one either. My husband orderd the shrimp cocktail, they were out of shrimp. Our server was nice, but we sat for long stretches waiting for our drinks, then to give our order, then for our food. The food itself was not really in keeping with what you would expect in a golf club restaurant. Marginal at best. The room is lovely, though, and the view is very pretty.

    I made this reservation because I was looking for a nice spot to go with my fiancee while we were on a mini-vacation in Ocean City. I was a little disappointed when I discovered this restaurant is at a golf club in the middle of a very fancy new neighborhood--I was looking for something a little more unique. However I must say, this restaurant offers an excellent view and the service was great. The food was delicious--not too much or too little. And they offered a really great deal where two people can select their own appetizer and entree (from a fixed list, but it includes quite a bit of their menu), share a dessert (bread pudding was AMAZING!) AND you get a bottle of house wine for a total of $65, MUCH cheaper than a la carte. Enjoy!

    Went for Sunday brunch. To sum this place up, it is a restaurant that sits in a golf clubhouse. Nice golf course, beautiful view of the bay, but the food does not come close to the setting. First, we were one of two tables and it took over 10 minutes to get drinks. The waitress was either new or not up to the job. Lastly, I had eggs Benedict with 1) untoasted muffin, 2) ham instead of Canadian bacon, and 3) eggs that were well done. The hash browns were from frozen. And, the manager delivered our toast long before the rest of the food because the kitchen did not know to prepare it last. My recommendation would be for this place to close, get new everything (including the name so any bad reviews would not affect business) and start over.

    Overall it was an outstanding outing. The food was excellent. Service a bit slow, but that was because they were so busy. Ambience, only fair because it was raining so hard and the wind blowing so you could not see much. Noise level, louder than on my previous visits, but there was a wedding reception happening. Their music was great for dancing but a bit lively for dinner music.

    My wife and I never expected the staff and patrons to be so engaging at what appears to be a "stuffy" country club setting. It was absolutely the contrary! Michelle (the bar tender) made us feel right at home the minute we sat down to order a couple of VERY affordable "happy hour" coctails. Once we were seated at our table overlooking the beautiful bay the ambiance alone raised our expectations a bit higher for our dining experience. Three words... (They nailed it)!! Derek was one of the most attentive servers we've ever dealt with and the food was great. It literally would have cost us the same to go to Applebee's. Be sure to purchase a certificate from Restaurant.com to make it even sweeter.

Chef Tracy has great command of his food; from the wonderfully chocolatety cookies to the succulent steak, the lightly seasoned garlic mashed potatoes and heavenly key lime pie, it's hard to go wrong when you can dine on a select menu for two including a house bottle if wine for $59 a couple.

    This was the perfect dinner for my boyfriend, my parents, and I the week of Thanksgiving. Steven (Stephen?) was the perfect server. Not hounding us but always there when we needed him. For a Tuesday, it was really quiet. No other parties were there when we arrived, so we sat right in front of the massive fireplace. It was very nice. I definitely plan to return for a special occasion. It's pricey, but worth it.

Our dinner was very good and with the reasonable prix fixe of $59.00 incl a bottle of house wine an unbeatable combination. My veal piccata and my husband's rockfish were delicious. After dinner they come around with yummy chocolate chip cookies to choose from before dessert. The evening was topped off with some wonderful live dinner music........such a rarity today. A lovely soloist with a keyboardist. She came around and took requests and I felt like dancing in the spacious dining room.

    We made a reservation and asked for a window view. When we arrived we requested a special waiter as well. We were told either way we would have to wait 10 mins and were practically ordered to the bar area. 40 minutes later I got up to see what the problem was and we were told they gave our table to another group. We were never informed this while we were waiting. Thank goodness the food was good and the waiter was excellent and took great care of us.
