Two of 4 meals had to be sent back for being cold. They heated up the ribs but by then the baked potato was cold. Crab cakes were very small.

Reservations were made 3+weeks in advance. I made reservations for another friend 3 days after mine and they were seated in the main section while we were seated in the “dog pound” I don’t think dogs in general should be allowed in food establishments and I sure was disappointed to be seated there.

Really sad we didn’t have a good experience because I really wanted to like this place. Beautiful atmosphere, host was super accommodating (we didn’t fill in how many people in our reservation and he was great about it!) our server was either new and poorly trained or clueless. Salads, appetizers and dinner all came at the same time. Drinks were awful . We were there at sunset and the bugs were awful, they did have bug spray but it was no help.

I would like to thank the staff, especially our server, Shelby! We were introducing our Swedish friends your establishment, as they’ve never been there. As Realtors, my partner & I are always thinking of fun places to take potential customers, and you didn’t disappoint. Tropical Ave was awesome as always, too! Everyone had a wonderful time...good food, a few cocktails & rocking music! Thanks, again!

Very rarely will I leave a review because most the time it’s not warranted unfortunately LOL but I have to give kudos to this place the atmosphere the service and the food were all spot on! I had the strawberry romaine salad and it was exactly how they presented it on the menu only prettier presentation then I had imagined and I have to say I love it when The food prep staff cuts the Romain small enough so you’re not left out large pieces hanging out of your mouth when you’re trying to eat dinner LOL we also had the crabcakes for our appetizer and we live in the Northeast so we’re pretty picky about crabcakes we have some pretty great crabcakes up here and I was not disappointed there was plenty of crab in just enough filler it wasn’t mostly filler with just a little crab. My husband had the ribs and he said they were the best he’s ever had and trust me we have a son-in-law who is a chef who prides himself in his smoked ribs so that’s a big deal to hear my husband say they were the best he ever had and no, he was not drinking heavily LOL
All in all it was a fabulous experience...And in such an unsuspecting neighborhood we found a little gem. We are here for four months every year and never heard of this place unfortunately but now we will be regulars for sure! cannot wait to bring my mother-in-law when she comes down next week because we know she won’t be disappointed either. Definitely not just “bar food” ♥️
Oh and I have to say we go out quite often and like I said my daughter and son-in-law own a restaurant so we are used to being served and I am embarrassed to say I forgot our waitresses name but she was unbelievable and I’m not just saying that she was the most attentive waitress without being annoying we have ever had ...very upbeat very positive and genuinely attentive. That says so much about the place alone! It’s obvious she loves what she does and that’s only fueled by good managers.

We had a reservation for 8 of us with a request to be somewhere where we could see the band. After arriving, there was some shuffling and seeking of a spot and they put us in the dog area - which is totally away from everything! (And features a giant pole in the center of the table so you can’t see folks across from you.) after asking to be moved, they were very kind and accommodating. Service was ok - waitress was nice but somehow two people got their food about 10 min after the rest of us. We had a tricky time flagging her down for refills on water and such. (They could benefit from a busser to take some pressure of the waitstaff!) overall a fun night but not great service experience. Attitudes were great but sadly execution was lacking.

Used your reservation service and were given a premier seat with a wonderful view. Our server was very prompt and very professional. The food was excellent as were the drinks. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will be back again and will use your booking service for sure.

First time enjoying this wonderful place. It was a busy, cool and windy evening so there weren’t many spots for a group of seven. So they brought over a large outdoor space heater that worked perfectly for our group. Food was excellent (the ribs were perfect). Service was good. Definitely a keeper for our list of places to go.

Horrible food and service. Waited for 1 hour for our peel and eat shrimp and they came out cold. Of the 4 of us, 3 of our meals also came out cold and 2 of them were down right horrible. The manager seemed busy going to multiple tables that were complaining. Despite the beautiful location, we will not be returning. Would not recommend to anyone for dinner because I would expect you would be disappointed.

We really enjoyed the lighthouse grill. It is much better than it had been in the past when it was under different ownership. Plus, you can’t beat the view! Great burgers, And wonderful smoked salmon

New Year’s Eve, 2019. Not as busy as expected. Seated immediately with a reservation at 9 pm. Side salad, tiny. Tomato soup, ok. Fried plantain app was absolutely flavorless. We were offered a sauce to dip it in. Wife’s grouper sandwich was bland with too much char bits attached from an unclean grill. Once again, we were offered a sauce for it. Waitress allowed us to return it and she got a hamburger. With more grill bits attached to it. My prime rib sandwich was good. Not great, but good. The DJ entertainment was poor. He did play our song which was nice, but for New Years he didn’t keep any sort of vibe going.
I must give very high praise to Amy, our waitress. She was outstanding and accommodating to every need that we had. If you eat here just make sure you have her.
Drinks were satisfactory. The old fashioned was ok and my wife’s dirty martini was good as well.
Location and ambiance was very nice.
Go here for a sandwich for lunch.
Don’t make this a special evening place.

Sorry, Lighthouse, you need to up your game and clean the grill.

As usual a perfect evening with friends listening to music and having dinner. The addition of the Cuban Sandwich is a serious plus👍. We have been going to this spot since 2005, and it just keeps getting better. Josh our server took especially good care of us. Thanks

We were expecting more from The Lighthouse restaurant from the reviews we saw. The service was sub par, (server was unattentive) the food was not what we expected, very bland and not much flavor. It was not very busy but it was difficult to find a parking space.

This was our 4th time there. Previous visits have been outstanding, however, this time the service was extremely poor and both the fish and chicken were overcooked. We'll give it another try, but this time it was very disappointing.
