I was so disappointed in the food, esp. the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp. The salad could have been a little fresher but it was ok. Now the shrimp were WAY overcooked and the seasoning was so salty! I mean, salt lick, yuk. The crab dip appetizer was good but the calimari was nothing to write home about.

We went for a Sunday birthday brunch. A scrambled egg skillet was good, but the Eggs Benedict - Chesapeake-style was the best we’ve ever had. Bloody Mary was excellent, coffee was good, and the view is spectacular!
Service was a little discombobulated; one server took our orders, another delivered the food from the kitchen; someone else took dishes away. No one had bothered to check whether the table had any issues utensils….
Our breakfasts wouldn’t ordinarily be considered “finger foods,” so that was a disappointment. :-0
Our server also had to be reminded of the drinks part of the order.
In fairness, we were among the first diners after they opened the doors, and they were probably a bit late getting coordinated and set up. These weren’t at all major issues and WE’L DEFINITELY BE BACK:-)

The waiter was excellent, the food was delicious. Make sure to time sunset with the end of your meal so that you can get some nice photos outside. The dining room is not far from the bar so depending on the sports event it might be a little loud.

We were seated promptly. Waiter during middle of meal felt rushed waiting on other customers. Guess short of help as usual here in the area. Wine list is limited by the glass, no red blend available. Also ask for Beefeaters Gin, not available.

This was a picture perfect setting for our anniversary dinner! The staff was attentive and very friendly. Our meals were both delicious! My salmon and her ribeye could not have been better! We enjoyed a perfectly matched bottle of wine and were treated to two delicious glasses of champagne to help us celebrate our 47th anniversary! To top it off, the almost full moon rose over the Ocean City skyline.

We enjoyed our dinner! They had a great menu and a few specials that peaked our interests. The drink menu met both of our expectations. The view is outstanding! When in the area, you should visit if you can. It’s a nice change of pace from the typical OCMD scene.

A great escape for a sunset dinner with a view. Had an early dinner so the there was barely a crowd. The service by Stephen was great very attentive! A great spot to escape from the lights and sounds of coastal Ocean City. Also compared to DC and major city prices a very affordable delight!

Overall experience at Lighthouse Sound was great and I would definitely return. My boyfriend and I went for Valentine's Day and it was the perfect romantic spot. It was a nice getaway from Ocean City for a night. Filet Oscar was very good, super tender!

The food we received was really great. The waitress just forgot my wife's salad and my soup. They did comp us our desert of Crème Brule to make up for the oversight. All in all the food was a bit pricey, but the quality was there.

We had an outstanding Valentine's Day dinner. The food was fabulous and perfectly prepared - Scallop and Calamari for appetizers and Beef Filet Oscar style for both entrees. The cocktails were well prepared and we had a nice reasonably priced bottle of St Michelle Brut with dinner. Matt was a very good waiter who was efficient and professional. The safety protocols were all appropriate.

We wanted a Valentine’s lunch but the menu wasn’t available until dinner. A little disappointed. Had to ask for silverware. Soup was Luke warm. Bathrooms were surprisingly dirty for a location like this. Beautiful waterfront views so I expected a little more from this restaurant. This was a first time visit and we aren’t sure if we will return.

This was our second experience at Lighthouse Sound. Both times were very enjoyable. The first time we felt the one entree contained a little too much sauce but the food was excellent. This time we both had filet mignon. It was listed on the menu as 8 oz but it seemed to be in the 9-10 oz range. Yum! It was prepared to perfection...one medium and one medium rare. Which is more than I can say for the well known national steakhouse just south of this establishment. Probably could have used a litttle more seasoning for my taste but I prefer more seasoning than most people. Cream of crab soup was delicious as were both of our cocktails and desserts. We will definitely return to Lighthouse Sound!
