Love coming to the Light House Grill. The view is fantastic and the entertainment was outstanding. But the food last evening was not good and the prices are high. We will be back but next time were just coming for a drink and the onion rings which were excellent.

We've been here several times and it's always very good. I got the grouper rueben with onion rings and my wife had the sesame crusted ahi salad that she really liked.
Also our waitress was very quick with our drinks. We will be back soon!

Had a great time as always. This is my go to place. The music was way too loud for the size venue and for the dinner crowd. But otherwise we dealt with it and had a great time.

a reliably good place for dinner. Bring a cozy for your drink as it is open air dining. Need to keep that beer cold! Great service and relaxing atmosphere on the intercoastal waterway.

Was disappointed to be sat in the sun on a 90 degree day with 7 people and told we have the best seats. Food was not very good and eating while being hot was not enjoyable. When I said something on our way out to hostess that sat us she said I should have spoke up and they could have moved us. There was no other seating available. I felt like my comment was simply put back on me. We are locals and will not be coming back.

Love lighthouse grill but we were there Sunday afternoon ( party of 6). They brought all of our food our at once including salads. My husband looked at the try of food and our side salads were covered in about 15 flies each. We asked for new salads but who knows if they were new or the same ones. They need to bring out side salads before the meal.

The atmosphere and music was wonderful. The service also wonderful. The food was mediocre at best. The smoked chicken had barbecue sauce on half a chicken which may have been threatened with smoke but was not worth 17.99 the hush puppies were greasy and burnt. The Maui Maui was tough and lacked flavor.

So in short I guess bar food is all that this place has to offfer.

Beautiful thatched roof open air dining with a menu that includes nearly anything you could think of! When it rained, the staff pulled down clear acrylic sides so you could still see. I will definitely go back!

I love the Lighthouse. It's always fun with lots of action and great mood music.

My favorite drink there is the Frose. Seriously...Trust Me on this!! Refreshing but not too sweet.

Food: Hot Peel & Eat Shrimp appetizer. The Reuben is fantastic and my favorite dinner is the Herb Grilled Salmon with Orzo. Don't forget the cheddar jalapeño hush puppies.

Make a reservation if you're coming with a larger group. There is plenty of outside areas to enjoy if you have to wait.

We came here on a Friday night and the live music was loud but the band was good. We asked to be seated away from the band and the hosts accommodated our request. Definitely a more laid back feel with the service but it was a good meal! The food was good. We will be back!
