First time there
Very nice and food very good...will absolutely go again
Great food. Rude, apathetic, condescending host and server.
Best filet and lobster that I've ever eaten. Definitely going back.
The food was very bland.. waitress was very nice and attentive
Excellent food and service. Honey/thyme butter on bread to start the meal. I had filet and lobster tail & both were fantastic. Service was excellent. I will be back!
I took my fiancé here for his bday and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. This was a first for both of us and we were talking about how good the food was on our way home. Definitely making it a point to go again.
All of our dinners were excellent - clam bake, walleye, and surf and turf.
Food had no seasoning very plain tasting. I ordered the steak & finger potatoes. Noise level was fine, restaurant was very clean. If your into eatting low salt or healthy food with bland taste then this is a great spot for you.
The food was good but not great. For the prices they charge the food should be great.
Overall, our experience was okay.
Table near us was a large group that was very loud. Cussing and laughing.
Food was okay. I ordered scallops and when they were brought to the table, one scallop had a short, curly hair on it. Notified server and she immediately got me a new dinner. New scallops were tasty but the sides were bland (potatoes and spinach). My husband ordered steak Oscar and he said it was delicious.
Our server Peggy was nice and prompt in service.
A bit disappointed our bill was not credited due to hair in the scallops. We did receive a free birthday dessert since we were celebrating my husbands birthday.
Probably will not go back.
I would highly recommend Don’s Lighthouse! Food was great and service was top notch!
Always good food, service, value. However, tea selection does not include plain old black tea.
We were seated immediately. Our waitress was very welcoming and was able to answer all our questions easily. The meal was delicious with a high level of artistry; beautiful plating. We had dessert and coffee afterwards. It was a lovely meal to celebrate my birthday! Had never been here before, and would highly recommend!
It was amazing the food was perfect it was quiet and my server was super cool.
My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary. The service was great, and the food was delicious. They knew it was our anniversary, so they gave us a free dessert. We had a wonderful experience.
It was the perfect setting for my Mother in Law’s Birthday!! We enjoyed every single bite of our food!!
This is a very nice place a bit pricey but very good 👍.
Great food and outstanding service. Would have been an excellent value if I had not ordered 2 bottles of wine but I like wine
It was a wonderful evening with friends eating great food.
Food was un flavorful
First time here. I would highly recommend for anyone who wants good quality well tasting food. I will be back.
Server was very attentive, and helped in every way he could. Food was amazing. Will DEFINITELY be back.
I treated my husband to an Anniversary dinner and this was the most amazing dining experience we’ve had in quite some time. Very intimate
Can’t beat the filet and lobster special at Don’s Lighthouse. We added a Pomeroy salad, cool and refreshing. The only thing I’d do different is ask for the steak sauce on the side as there was too much for my taste as it is rather salty.
Lunch at Don's. What good reason to get out of the house for a while and enjoy ourselves. No worries the day we dined, finding the dining room (surprisingly) sparsely-populated. After soup and and an order of fresh, tender shrimp, our entrees were walleye and scallops. Both we perfectly prepared and nicely plated. Fresh seafood, one reason we've been going to Don's for a long time. Then there's the consistently great service provided by our favorite servers: Lori or Patty. During a time when we all want a break from the daily routine, a trip to Don's is a good choice for some time away to dine in full-service restaurant. Take out is good, but nothing beats dining in.
Excellent service and even better food! Norm was our waiter. Very attentive and kind. We started off with the calamari and shrimp cocktail. For dinner we chose Portuguese seafood stew, Nantucket Lightship scallops, and swordfish with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Dessert followed, which was a chocolate mousse (that my kids inhaled before I even had a chance) and an apple pie that was unbelievably YUMMY! (I do not like apple pie!) This restaurant will not disappoint!
Great food! The place doesn't look like much from outside, but we will definitely be returning.
We went to Don’s Lighthouse for my boyfriends birthday. The food was delicious and I noted in our reservation that it was his birthday. They brought him an eclair with a candle and he felt special. No loud singing which to him is a plus. We both got French onion soup for an appetizer. It was delicious and very cheesy. He got a steak that was cooked exactly the way he wanted it. I got lobster and it was exquisite. Our server snapped at me when I asked a question because he was in a hurry to help a large party. If it wasn’t for that this would be 5/5 stars. We will be back to enjoy Don’s Lighthouse again.
One of my favorite restaurants. Be sure to try the French Onion soup!
Great experience and food. Definitely going again.
Everything about Don's Lighthouse was top-notch the place was clean the service was good the food was excellent
food was excellent, service was excellent too. Thank you
Excellent meal and service. Our server Terri was wonderful. We were celebrating our anniversary. We were given a surprise dessert as well. We will definitely return!
It was really nice. I truly enjoyed myself.
What a great restaurant. Our sea food meals were prepared to perfection. The service was first rate.
The food was delicious, and the service excellent.
Our Server was fantastic. Food was good . My steak was a little fattier than I would expect. We had an enjoyable time.
I wanted to surprise my fiancé. Reservations were almost booked. I was able to snag an 8:45 reservation even though that is pretty late for us. I wish we had gone somewhere else because we ended up leaving without eating because it was that bad! The table cloth had stains all over it. Our waitress introduced herself and said she was having a bad night... so we were already off to a bad start. Ordered stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer which were amazing! BUT we never got our bread. My steak & lobster combo came out and my steak was very rare (I ordered medium) we sent the steak back. Meanwhile my fiancé ordered the crab legs.... they should change it to “crab leg” because she only got one and there is no way it was a pound BTW it was $58 for that one leg. Trying to be courteous, my fiancé waited for my food to come back so she wasn’t eating in front of me so her food was cold by the time my plate returned. This time, they didn’t give me my lobster tail. At that point we were so hungry and fed up, we paid for our one glass of wine and mushrooms and went to rally’s since it was too late to go anywhere else. So sad and disappointed.
I loved the restaurant, I just wish the huge pots and shrubs didn’t cover the windows. Loved our server!
