    Reservation went well. Came in at 4pm on a Sunday with blaring rock band screaming out a song. Was told when arrived “ it should be over soon “. I told her that music was loud, 4:30 band left. Could not have a conversation for 30 minutes. No apologies from staff/management. Definitely a bar atmosphere then.. Food was expensive for what you got. My guest had meager proportions- my blackened grouper was good. Dinner Menu was a joke for the high caliper restauran it once was. Could not see the water from inside. Bushes were too high. Parking is hard to find . Needed to Park on street If you go out to dock, a beautiful view. Will not be back.

    The restaurant is undergoing significant remodeling and menu is extremely limited. Music was moved outback in parking lot. I would recommend they close until rebuilding is finished. The full menu shown on internet and advertised on FM RADIO is NOT available and we were misled. . A good restaurant is risking losing business do to misleading advertisement. Brittany was our waitress and deserves five stars for helping us to understand the predicament they are in.

    We usually love The Lighthouse. Unfortunately, the kitchen was closed for remodeling, so the very abbreviated menu was being cooked in an outside trailer. Also, the bushes and other landscaping were so tall no one would see the view of the bay. We will definitely call before we make the drive again, to make sure things are back to normal.

    The food selection was very limited due to construction. The waitress was slow to return and it wasn’t that busy when we arrived there…The seating felt clustered and the air flow was hotter than I remember from our last few visits. I understand that was partially due to the weather but I think the blocked up area stifled the air flow. Normally this is my choice spot but the construction is making this not a place to go again until it’s done.

    Don’t go until the renovation is done! Walking by the truck they are using to cook in was not very appetizing. The bushes have grown up so this obstructs view of the water. Overall the ambience is not good during the renovation and the menu is limited

    I’ve never been a fan of the Lighthouse Grill but have friends that like it. Always felt the food was over-priced for the size of the portions and being the food was mostly overcooked. We understand you’re under construction, limiting your menu choices but last night was extremely disappointing. However, our server was very good. Not sure we’ll be back. Hope your food preparation improves.

    Disappointing visit to the Lighthouse. My wife and I are fairly regular visitors for dinner and it's usually pretty good. Unfortunately, lots of construction and renovation going on that we didn't know about when we made our reservation. Parking was limited, half the restaurant was closed off, VERY limited menu selections because the kitchen is being renovated, and that meant the food was being prepared in a truck in the parking lot. It's still a nice spot and we'll go back in a couple of months after the renovations are done. You may want to check before going.

    Went here for my Birthday last month and it was awesome. Full menu and lots of options. Good food and drinks. Great ambiance with live music. Had such a great time decided to bring a first date here. Had reservations for 8. Arrived and they had no tables avail. Had to wait, which wasn't a big deal as a table opened up in 10 minutes. I was disappointed by the fact that the menu was now a tiny fraction of the one from last month with very limited options. That... and all they had was plastic airline knives and forks. Not impressed.

    Are waiters Jay was excellent .The one man band was great and view of the water is very pretty. The food was ok when I got the prime French onion dip there was no onions on it and no melted cheese on it . I really wanted to try there cheesy jalapeño balls , well that didn’t go good no cheese and jalapeños just tasted like deep fried rolled up bread...But the drinks from the bar where excellent too .. Even tho the food didn’t come out like it supposed to it was tasty and I think I will come back and try other things .

    Repeat visit. LOVE this restaurant for consistently good food, service, cocktails and waterside dining. This was the first time we booked a table in advance due to July 4th but we got exactly what we requested for a table near the water and were seated immediately in spite of the restaurant being very busy. I had scallops and hubby had fish and chips and both were very good. Will definitely be back. One of Englewood’s finest!
