    Enjoyed excellent food at The Lighthouse Grill and excellent service from Dominic who looked after us so well. A nice concise menu with a good range of dishes with mass appeal. Good quality ingredients. I enjoyed a beautifully prepared sautéed Swordfish and other half Seared Salmon. Shared a very good Key Lime Pie. Nice setting looking out to the bay. Beautiful sunset, followed by a dramatic electrical storm out in the bay. Highly recommended if you are looking to dine in the area.

    We greatly enjoyed the fresh seafood, including ceviche, mahi, and scallops. However, everything else was not up to par for a fine dining experience. Seating options were either outside right next to the loud pool, or a small area inside which was nicely decorated, but very hot and humid. Service was poor outside, but eventually we were moved inside where it improved significantly. Despite how good the food was, I can't recommend spending $50 per person while dripping with sweat, especially when there are so many options in the keys

    Very disappointed in menu and portions. Ceviche was tasty but super small portion. Scampi was OK. however it didn't state on menu that it comes over pasta and being a gluten free diet that didnt go over well. bread was stale and my draft beer was sour. The grounds and restaurant are very nice,and great sunsets. but probably will not go back. 6/02/22

    Great food and Great service. Our server Dermond (hope I spelled it right). Was kind and patient (we had lots of questions). Smoked fish dip excellent, lollipop chicken excellent, the plantain appetizer, just so so I felt it was more of a dessert type dish (personal opinion). The grounds are beautiful.

    Visiting from California. It was a limited menu. our waiter said almost all of the dishes were new so I can’t compare but the dishes we had were awesome. Especially the plantain. Loved the outdoor setup, loved the live music. Our waiter was great, I wish I remembered his name, but he was young and mentioned he was working as a mate to work towards a charter captain cause thats what my husband does and mentioned.

    Drink specialties were excellent and reasonably priced. Smoked fish dip was excellent, the spicy kick was unique. The catch of the day was grilled with caper sauce on a bed of rice or mashed potatoes with asparagus- delicious. Service was excellent considering the labor shortage. We had reservations, however, many walk-ups were seated with a minimum or no wait time. Price points were acceptable for issues with availability and shipping shortages.

    Firstly, not aware it was a brunch buffet (online said it finished at 5 - we expected regular menu. While the food items looked good and creatively displayed, they had been on the tables for much too long. Fried chicken was super dry. Deserts good. Server, Stephen, was great.

    We are local residents and eat here often. While the regular menu is limited, the food is generally very good. This Easter Brunch was a huge disappointment. The buffet consisted of individual servings in clear plastic. Not the elegance one expected. Lox and. Cream cheese on raisin bagels? Rediculous. Where was the baked ham or steamship round one would expect for $60 per person? The grits squares were too salty to eat. I liked the fresh fruit. The fried chicken was terrible. KFC is better. Our bill was $400 for four people. Very disappointing.

    Its a good restaurant with good food and sometimes really good food. Help is a big issue so I know this and that is why I would come back over and over again but little things like got the chopped salad and it came out with no potato strings and barely any dressing. Cuban Rice balls are good but they were great before - Before the outside coating on the Cuban rice balls was crunchy - now it is soggy and doughy. Entrees are great! Again good dining experience, great location just small little things that need some fine tuning!

    Server was unconcerned and uninterested in our table.. close to the worst server I have ever had. Food was ok. View was awesome. Restaurant was beautiful. Not even halfway full though during dinner rush. This place used to be fantastic and super packed when the Hyatt was in front. They need to get back to that place.

    Our server obviously hates his job. Very Negative,very unfriendly, had to chase him down for everything-and ask other servers assistance. A matter a fact we tipped another server who helped us an extra $20 for getting our server several times. The Caesar salad was even gross! How can u make a horrible Caesar? My virgin strawberry frozen drink was completely cherry juice. Totally gross-horrible. So disgusting I had him take it away. Every time we done with you the service and good gets worse every time. I give u a negative rating!

    We have dined at The Lighthouse Grill this season more than any restaurant in the area. One, because it is always awesome and two, they take reservations which many restaurants do not in the area. We have heard of waits up to two hours around here. Not at the Lighthouse Grill. Easy to book on Open Table and you can choose from high top, outside or inside options. The fish of the day this last visit was tile fish. I had it blackened with a lemon and caper sauce and it might have been my best meal anywhere this season. Well done and see you in the fall.
