    Food was fresh & very good, but the grouper needed a bit more flavor. A bit price. Drink selection was excellent. Relaxing fun atmosphere. Our waitress was terrific, and not just because she had a rainbow of pens in her pocket. Friendly, patient, funny, polite, she went that extra mile. First time visitors & we’ll be back!

    I've eaten here many times. The kitchen is being renovated, so a limited menu is currently available out of the catering truck. Food quality was good but prices are much higher than a year ago. Went to see the live music and found out that with part of the main dining area closed to limit total occupancy the band was on a stage in the parking lot and could not be heard from the restaurant.

    We made our reservation before seeing the recent reviews. Not sure what the previous issues were as the dinner and ambiance were terrific. Had a seat by the water with no issues of a blocked view. Food was great. The "food truck" noted in previous reviews is actually a portable kitchen the restaurant uses when catering events. Limited menu, but using the term "food truck" is really derogatory and incorrect. We will come here again.

    We were very happy with th lighthouse. The menu this time was a little restricted due to renovation in the kitchen . But the food was good. We took our puppy with us. For the first time. The server was wonderful brought her treats and water so she was very happy to. This is now our favorite on the water grill.

    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.

Safety precautions

  • Cleaning & sanitizing

    • Surfaces sanitized between seatings
    • Digital, disposable or sanitized menu provided
    • Common areas deep-cleaned daily
