This is a beautiful place, so go for a drink and a photo op. Food was very disappointing, sad to say. No salmon despite it being on the standard menu and the only green vegetable option was asparagus. Starches aplenty so corn on the cob as vegetable du jour a poor choice. Sincerely hope they get their act together in the kitchen, rethink and rework their dinner menu and refrain from presenting such an unappetizing dessert tray. Perhaps lunch would be better!

Never disappointed! Year after year when we visit the shore we include the Lighthouse Sound as one of our dinner stops.

View is beautiful but doesn't make up for....ordered Seafood pasta that came with shrimp, scallops, crab. The crab was a garnish not part of the meal and very little of that like sprinkled flakes on top. Not what I was expecting for $29. Shrimp and scallops were fine. We ordered mussels as an appetizer and 7!!! out of the dish were closed!! The waiter said he would check with the manager but nothing was done. It shouldn't have left the kitchen with 7 closed mussels. Crabcake dinner was fine, chicken piccata dinner was fine. Dessert was fine. Only 2 wait staff for whole dining room...our waiter not bad overall but I think too inexperienced for the tables he had and for fine dining. The other wait person we have had before and is much more seasoned. We will return but was dissapointed with the appetizer and entree.

First time here. This restaurant is BEAUTIFUL and the staff are super nice. My family and I stayed past closing, we had to sit outside just to enjoy the weather and scenery. The food was great and so was the service! Will definitely plan to stop by on our next outing to Ocean City.

Lighthouse Sound is an absolute gem outside of bustling Ocean City, Maryland. I do not typically write reviews, but I feel that Shellie, the general manager, and her staff wholeheartedly deserve one.

To begin, my friends and I traveled from Pennsylvania to Ocean City, Maryland for a bachelorette weekend. The bride had requested a fancy dining experience on Saturday night, so I took charge of searching for one that day. I lived in NYC for years, thus making me a big fan of OpenTable. Immediately, I started looking through reviews for dinging experiences in the area, and I happened upon the Lighthouse Sound. The pictures were gorgeous, and the reviews were positive. I easily made a reservation for six guests at 7:30pm that evening.

On a side note, I would like to make a comment on the negative reviews left for this restaurant. If you look at the dates for most of the complaints, a lot of them fall on very, very busy holiday weekends. People, what do you expect? I am sure the staff worked their hardest to make sure all customers were happily accommodated. I ignored all of those reviews, and I am so happy I did.

Anyway, I called the restaurant a few hours before our dinner time to give them a heads up about the occasion. The young woman who picked up was very nice, so much so that when we lost connection, she instantly called me back. Not many businesses will do that, so I was impressed.

We arrived ahead of our reservation time by 15 minutes, so our table was still being set up. We did not mind at all since it gave us an opportunity to step out on the patio and see the water. Once our table was ready, we all sat down at a round table with a great spot in the room. The food was amazing (the salmon was superb), the views were breathtaking, and the staff was attentive. Shellie came to check on us and was so gracious. She even lit the fire pit for us after dinner!

The bride was thrilled, so dinner was a success! Thank you so much for a memorable experience!

Everything was perfect except for the weather!
We had the 2 can dine for $69 and the salmon & filet were delicious. We wanted the flat iron steak but it was sold out. Our waitress & overall experience was excellent. The rain subsidized so we were able to have an after dinner drink on the patio with the spectacular views. We will be back!

We have been to Lighthouse Sound several times. Every time was enjoyable. The food is delicious, the service is wonderful and the ambiance is exceptional. The view of the sound and golf course is awesome. Sylvia was our waitress every visit and her service and personality are 5 stars. We will definitely return.

The Lighthouse Sound was highly recommended to us by friends, and we could not have been more pleased with our experience. We took advantage of the TwoCan Dine offer and had a lovely 3 course dinner with several tantalizing choices, as well as a bottle of wine. Our delicious dinner was beautifully served and the magnificent views from our window table added to the elegant, romantic ambiance. We will definitely return!

6:45 reservation and our food was presented at 8:30. It wasn't the waitress...she was fine. After waiting all that time they took off HALF the price of two out of the 3 entrees that came out COLD instead of removing them from the check entirely. Very poor form. Too many better places to try...avoid this one!

I love this place, my daughter has her wedding here. Always great service and nice ambience.
This time though the food was really bad, first of all the menu had salmon and they were out of salmon at 6:30 pm!!! We requested an alternative fish....this is Ocean City, Maryland and they did not have one...Unacceptable!!
Then we ordered from the children’s menu mashed potatoes, again they were out. We were party of 8.
I was extremely disappointed with the careless.
Unless I have assurances that will changed I’m not planing to go again

I want to commend Silvia, our server , for the exceptional job she did last night to make my husband’s surprise birthday party a dinner that we all enjoyed. She was attentive and so polite and the food was delicious. Everyone had a great time. This was our third visit to Lighthouse Sound. We definitely would recommend it, and we definitely will return.

Went there to celebrate Father's Day and the restaurant did not disappoint. Food was very good, although a little pricey given that it is a golf course restaurant. The Dinner For 2 option was welcome although could have done without the wine bottle as an option. The view is spectacular and I would dare say it's one of the best in Ocean City. I would gladly go here again, although maybe for a smaller meal.

My husband and I came here for brunch this past weekend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary (2 weeks late). They had a nice breakfast and lunch menu (although on the smaller side). We both ordered food off the breakfast menu and it was absolutely delicious!

We actually got married here a little over a year ago. Everything was spectacular! The weather was perfect and our guests were able to enjoy the outdoor patio or hangout inside on the dance floor. The view of the bay and Ocean City is stunning - especially on a sunny day! The food was AMAZING, the staff went above and beyond, and the aesthetics were fabulous.

I would highly recommend Lighthouse Sound to anyone as the food, staff, and view are great!

Missed the early special by 30 minutes. Big price difference for same menu. Food tasted as though it was sitting around.. server recommended having the flank steak medium. It came out medium well, if not well. Stuffed chicken tasty but also overcooked. We were one of two tables in entire restaurant so puzzled why the food was overcooked. Bland mash potato, nice roasted veg. Good flatbread starter. Very nice hostess and server but probably won’t be back.

For a relatively empty restaurant Sunday morning the service was terribly slow. Eggs Benedict came out cold on an untoasted English Muffin with over cooked potatoes. My daughters both enjoyed their Belgian waffles though. Totally unremarkable dining experience.

The deserts were still frozen. The Manager was working helping all and doing a great job. .... She was working so hard. I could not tell her about the food ...She did a great job~!~!

We are never disappointed when dining at Lighthouse Sound. We tried the 2 can dine for $69, and left with several leftover boxes. The food was excellent. Our server, Andrew, was delightful, and recognized us, though we had not been in a couple months. When we are in the area, Lighthouse Sound is always one of our "must visit" places. Highly recommended!
