    This was a reuniting dinner with our college daughter it’s been a month since last time we saw. It was supposed to be a special dinner BUT we had the worst dining experience ever. At the beginning, our server was fine. She asked us drink then entree. Then something series of odd started happening. First of all we never got dinner roll. When she brought steak dinner, she asked us to cut the meat right there. She wanted to see if it was done well instead of come back a little later to check on us. I was not sure if this is routine here since I am not local? In fact, She never came back to our table during entree instead just brought a check. My daughter wanted a dessert. Surrounding tables seemed getting proper service. What was the reason she kept minimal effort to our table? It took another 15 min to gain her attention so we finally ordered dessert. Time to get check to pay. Our server managed to loose our credit card. She must have dropped between our table to a cashier. She never mentioned anything to us. Instead behaving oddly here & there, I figured she dropped our card. We found one sitting on a floor. I thought about asking manager but at the same time just wanted hell out of the place.

    I love the panoramic views of the golf course thru the large windows. This is especially true in the fall. The colors are beautiful. The food is always tasty and the presentation inviting. I eat there every time we visit Stonewall Resort. Great time for everyone.

    My husband and I dined here for our anniversary, I got the ravioli and he got the snapper. Both dishes were super delicious and we got the brownie marshmallow cheesecake for dessert. 10/10 would recommend and will be sure to come back!

    Stonewall Resort and all of their restaurants are a hidden gem! We came from Ligonier, PA for my wife's 60th birthday and had a fabulous time. The staff (from top to bottom) were the nicest and most helpful people. The resort was modern, clean, etc. I have nothing but great things to say about this place. Highly recommend!

    Not a greatest dining experience. Waitresses were under staff and the management, bar tender and hostess did very little to help care for the the customers. Wait times for drinks was 25 to 30 minutes while other staff other than the waitresses stood around doing very little. Talking with other guests later that evening, everybody experienced the same bad service. A great atmosphere but sub-par service will make it hard to go back.

    The porches offer the best view of the valley so even if you aren't eating at Lightburn's, you should at least grab a cocktail and enjoy it outside. You won't walk away hungry when you eat at Lightburn's. Portions are generous almost to the point of being ridiculous. The chocolate cake is rich, moist and delicious but enough for a family of 4. My husband's ribeye was cooked to perfection and my ravioli was good albeit too salty for my taste. If we come back to Stonewall Resort, I'm sure we'll dine at Lightburn's again.

    The Lightburn experience was extremely disappointing this time. We have visited 3 other times on Labor Day but this year they decided to have a buffet instead of the usual on-menu offering. The server said it was “easier on them to have the buffet”. I’m sure it was but they still let us sit there for 20 minutes before even asking if we wanted something to drink. The buffet was lacking with only two meat options which were stewing in water and I thought for a moment I was chewing on shoe leather. Then they brought the bill at $75 per person. What a terrible anniversary meal. They have done SO MUCH BETTER in years past. Their decision to make it easier on their staff made it a terrible experience for their customers. We expected to be able to order Ribeye, snapper, filet mignon, salmon, etc to have that high end experience. But no, it was a buffet that they brought up from Stillwater’s. They apparently thought the venue alone was worth $35 more per person. It wasn’t.

    I was so excited to try the restaurant. The view is beautiful. Our waitress was good. Our food was average at best. The fried green tomatoes were fairly good. My snapper was so overcooked and dry. My daughter's brisket was a huge slab and hard to cut through. The little potatoes were good but something I could have done at home. Our chocolate cake was probably the best thing we ate. Overall though, very unimpressed with all the hype of the place. Put some thought in the food and this place would have been 5 star.

    Our severer never replenished our drinks or came back to see if we needed anything. We went to the bar to get our own wine. The salad came out without any dressing. The beef brisket was so overcooked it looked like a piece of rawhide. When it was brought to the attention of the severer she did not do anything about it and her response was "whatever".

    My ribeye was ordered medium rare and was still blue in the middle. My wife ordered the filet, and when it came to the table was when they decided to let us know that they butterfly if before cooking it. This led to it being terribly overcooked, and at $52 we would not have ever ordered a beautiful piece of meat that was ruined in this way.

    Food was average. Service was excellent! Marcus was a wonderful service professional. He was attentive, so sweet and kind. Bo did an incredible job on the cocktails! We are quite picky about how to make an old fashioned, our favorite drink, and Bo was top notch. He was full of personality and really knows his stuff behind the bar. Well done, Lightburn's team!

    Disappointing experience compared to the Stillwaters restaurant at the resort. We dined on a Sunday evening and if I had to guess the kitchen was unexpectedly understaffed. We had a reservation for 7 people and when we arrived the hostess had to push tables together to get us seated. That’s not so big a deal but usually an Open Table reservation commands special attention. Seated at 6:30 pm and waiter didn’t show up for good 10 minutes. The ordering of drinks etc was a bit slow but appetizers came out fairly quickly. After that it was a slow and drawn out meal. They brought out the kids food first (note there were no kids menus so the 4 and 7 year old split a sirloin). When food finally came for rest around 8 pm it was so so. My wife’s steak was cool and over cooked. They did not dress the steak with the special gravy the waiter recommended. My son in law didn’t get fries (they ran out). My daughter only got a couple small tenders on her grilled chicken salad. We never got any bread even though the waiter said he was bringing some out. We finally got out of there around 8:30 pm. The wait staff was very pleasant and apologetic (we didn’t complain about anything) so they seemed to know it wasn’t a good experience. Maybe it was just us as it seemed other people’s meals moved along. The waiter was a super nice young man but it appeared the system was overloaded.

    My service was great ! Bo the bartender was great as well as my server for the app I had. I only ordered an app due the menu being the so terrible. I was told they had to change the menu recently due I management. The old menu sounded fantastic , I just couldn’t understand why they would change such great dishes to a menu with hot dogs ?

    We celebrated our sons birthday here during our vacation. We were staying at the resort so we used the shuttle taking very little time, but if you drive up there are plenty of parking spaces. Dinner was very nice with our picks of Salad, Chicken Alfredo, Chocolate Cake, and the Trio Hot Dogs. I wish there was a little more variety on the dinner entrees. The majority of the selections were pasta dishes, but it was all good and you had hand helds, soup and salads which made for a nice menu. Our bartender did a lovely job on our Martinis....very very cold and just made perfectly. Our waitress was a very sweet girl and she did a nice job taking care of us. The view at the restaurant is nothing short of spectacular and we would definitely come back to visit. There are areas on the patio to sit at tables or rock in the chairs....views of the golf course, resort, and the mountains. Beautiful. The entire staff was really nice and we had a lovely time. Perfect.

    Let me start by saying we were guests at the Stonewall Resort which has 3 restaurants. Based on their own descriptions, it seemed logical that Lightburn’s would be the more upscale of the 3, primarily being the lovely views & that families preferred Stillwaters. Well, the view was, indeed, lovely, but the menu was mediocre, at best. Dinner choices included fried bologna sandwiches with eggs, a trio of hot dogs, fish & chips, burger Only one seafood entree which was smoked salmon pasta Very disappointing, especially after we saw the menu at Stillwater’s, which was much more upscale My advice? Take the shuttle up for drinks on their terrace, then head back down for dinner

    First the good points. Our waiter was outstanding! And the food was excellent - better than anything I would expect at a restaurant in a state park resort. This could have been an outstanding dining experience except for the hostess with an attitude. We arrived about 20 minutes early. There were several empty tables so I asked if we could be seated now. She rolled her eyes but had another worker seat us. A major reason we chose this restaurant was that I read about the superb view from the windows surrounding the restaurant. We were seated at the table farthest from the windows and view. Since I saw there were 5 tables for 4 closer to the windows I asked if we could be seated closer to the windows. The person seating us asked the hostess and told us all those tables had already been requested by others. Disappointing but we understood. However, we were at the restaurant for 2 hours and none of those tables, including one right next to the window, were ever occupied. I surmised she didn't like us arriving early and asking for another table so she wasn't going to do anything to make our experience more enjoyable. At our table water was dripping from the ceiling air conditioning vent onto my son and husband. We loved our waiter and didn't want to get him involved with the unhelpful hostess so we said nothing. When we left the restaurant we did tell the person who seated us (not the initial hostess) about the dripping water and they might want to get that fixed before seating others at that table. There was no apology, just a response of "okay and I hope you have a nice evening." The incredible waiter and good food made this a good dining experience but it could have been so much better if the hostess had not had such an attitude and been willing to seat us near the window and not at a table with dripping water. Except for 2 large groups, everyone else in the restaurant was seated right next to the windows.

    The views are spectacular to start the experience. The staff was friendly and very helpful when deciding meal choices. The crab cakes were the most delicious crab cakes we have ever experienced. It was a first class experience overall!
