Beautiful views of the bay, especially if you sit outside. You cannot beat the ambiance of dinner at sunset. The seafood was very good— not excellent, but very good. You should eat here if you are in OC

Beautiful venue, we watched a couple get engaged at the Gazebo. Out second time there and enjoyed outside dining both time. The waitstaff was very attentive and the Parmasan Crusted Salmon was well prepared. Don't overlook the early bird special.

Very nice dinner and service and atmosphere was awesome. Our Server Stephen was so helpful in selection of entrees and wines. We had a nice family time and we’re able to visit with one another without feeling rushed. We will definitely have dinner there again.

The two can dine for $69 is a great deal.

We had dinner on a Friday night with family and enjoyed a big round table. Lovely restaurant to dine with friends. You are able to Enjoy a conversation and enjoy drinks, dinner and dessert with coffee within a beautiful setting. Our server Stephen was awesome and aimed to please. I was surprised to see that prices have increased but I guess that is with the current times. I believe from a business end they should give deals on weekends like 20% off entrees to have more of a dinner crowd on Friday and Saturdays. The “2 can dine for $69” is an awesome deal. Wish it was on Friday and Saturday to. Yes...food was very good.

It was our first time here and we were so very pleased. The dining area is beautiful and we had a lovely table overlooking the 18th green. Our server, Andrew, was remarkable!! He was so friendly and had a great knowledge of the menu and answered all questions. The food was Devine!! The servings were generous without being too much!! My husband had the seafood platter and I had the special, which was blackened brazino with a chili drizzle with roasted potatoes and broccoli Of course we made sure to leave room for dessert!! Again, was definitely NOT disappointed!! My husband had the red velvet smith island cake and I had the lemon berry cake!! Both were wonderful!! Prices were very reasonable for the quality of food!! We have definitely decided to put this into our regular rotation of places to eat!!

We hadn't been to Lighthouse Sound for quite some time. Used to like it a lot; ambiance is still top notch but the food quality seems to have suffered. Some items were good, primarily the appetizers. Many of the entrees were overcooked, including crabcake, shrimp, scallops, and chicken was tough. Creme Brulee is still fabulous however.

We were a party of 6 and arrived before 6. We had reservations and were seated right away. Our server was great but the food was subpar to say the least. The fish was not fresh fish - the catch of the day was frozen. The carrots and Brussels sprouts were extremely under cooked (they were hard). The asparagus was over cooked and the mashed potatoes were extremely lumpy. I ordered a Cosmo and it was just vodak, soda water and cranberry juice. The table cloth was dirty and bathrooms weren’t clean either.

The view was beautiful and I say I’d go back for a drinks but as stated above, even that will not bring me back.

This was our wedding anniversary and so glad we picked this place! This was our first time. The food and service was outstanding! Reese was our main server and she was the best...so nice, cute, friendly and didn't miss a beat! I don't have any negative comments, but when I booked the reservations mentioned that it was our anniversary and would like a nice table with water views. Would have liked by the window, but we still had water views. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I went for a birthday dinner but were very disappointed with our meals. We both had a seafood platter with a crab cake, shrimp and branzino. The highly touted crab cake, per our server, was more of a patty with filler and flavorless crab. The shrimp lacked any seasoning but were of a nice size. The branzino was excellent and one of the best tasting fish you could eat. Three ladies at the table next to us even commented, after seeing our platters, that being in Md you would expect a lump crab cake and not what we were served.

We have eaten at Lighthouse Sound Restaurant for many years and have seen tremendous improvement in the food and service. This last visit the food and service was very good. My wife ordered the Vegetable Razoto which she prefers and it was excellent. I ordered the Parmesan Salmon. The salmon was cooked to perfection, but the Parmesan sauce was too rich and too much, such that overpowered the fish. I would recommend using much less on the salmon.
It was obvious that our server was new and still learning, but she did a very good job overall.
The ambience in the auxiliary dining room was excellent , except for the room temperature which was a bit too warm. It had been a warm day, and the A/C may not have been turned on early enough to cool the room for dinner guests, although our reservation was for 8:00PM.
All in all I would give our experience a Very Good rating.
