When we booked we didn't realize that this restaurant does more than just serve a great brunch - it also provides a path to foodservice careers for people who are unemployed and homeless. I would definitely recommend!

This was our first time to The Light House Bistro and we were very pleased. The service was great and the food was outstanding! We went for breakfast but will plan to go again for dinner. Highly recommend!

I’d really like to give this restaurant five stars but the food is just not worthy to be called outstanding. The restaurant has a great vibe. It was as busy and buzzing when we arrived for a 12:00 brunch. They know their seating and how to move things along. The staff is friendly and attentive. Nice ambiance and I love their dedication to community outreach. My wife and I both had egg dishes which were dinerish and tasty but not very special in any way. They need to put some color on those home fried potatoes. They barely had any fry on them at all. I’d return again for a simple breakfast or lunch but when I want a little something more for a brunch experience I will look elsewhere.

Delightful! We'll be back, with friends! The Beignets are pure ambrosia. The eggs were a little salty for our taste, but otherwise everything was A+++

What I loved most was the ability to make reservations for brunch and the tables weren’t placed too close to each other. The food was good and the service was great!!

The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Drinks and appetizers were delivered quickly while we decided on our dinners. The Crab Dip is delicious, served with fresh, crisp chips. The menu is not large but certainly adequate with a nice variety. All 4 meals were plentiful and delicious. This is my 3rd or 4th visit and I will definitely return.

Awesome experience so glad to have found a place that had everything great social message, great food exceptional service pleasure to eat at the Bistro and to think we were supporting a great cause. This is a high ends experience as well. Win Win all round. Would definitely go again if in the area. My wife reckoned it was the best meal she had all weekend and mine was certainly up there with the rest.

Lighthouse was discovered because I was going to another restaurant in the area and the wait time took way to long, so I decided to walk down the street saw that they had a amazing brunch menu and never looked back. Amazing food, drinks and experience. If you are a true foodie as I am then you must try them and invite friends so they can have the same experience you did! Take my word you thank me later!

We tried the Lighthouse Bistro after a concert in Annapolis the other night. The food was REALLY good. The atmosphere was nice too, but it’s small and a little on the loud side. It was a weekend night, and it was full, so you would expect it to be a little livelier. Would definitely go back when visiting Annapolis.

Only complaint is that salad with chicken looked unappealing and just wasn’t very good. Unfortunately this is one of my go to spots, so a little disappointing.

Ashleigh, our waitress, was very nice, fun, & easy going.
Thank you Ashleigh for your attentive & patient service with our group of 13! And thank you for the gentleman who reminded us we were forgetting a purse under the table.
Thanks again! Evan

We were celebrating our Midshipmen’s third year at the Naval Academy. Our wait was long due to a very chatty large group that lingered. It was worth the wait. Everything was delicious and their cause of lifting up those around us is priceless!

all really good stuff. Only complaint is that we made a 1030am reservation and were not seated until closer to 11am. Apparently previous guests were overstaying their brunch ;it was USNA reunion weekend so I have some sympathy for their explanation. I would absolutely go back!
