The Lighthouse Bar & Grill
Great food and beautiful location !
Actually it is not fair for me to review the food or service. I booked a 7 pm Tuesday evening reservation and when I arrived I was told that the kitchen was closed. So either Open Table or the restaurant need to properly post the operating hours. And someone should have noticed that a reservation was taken for a time when the restaurant was closed and notified me. The food and service may be excellent, but I'll never know.
My friend and I each indulged in the $5 weekend Bloody Mary's and I had the BLT (but without bacon). They were nice enough to substitute avocado for the bacon for me and it was delicious!
Great place, good food and beautiful views. Hidden gem !!
Beautiful setting, good breakfast, good service. Got my order wrong, but rectified quickly and friendly.
We went on Halloween 🎃 it was dead.
But peaceful , no special on this day
I was hoping for a pumpkin dessert... but nope. Always a nice place to go .
Wonderful outdoor dining with beautiful views. Service was spectacular for a bday lunch. Robust menu and food came out quickly.
We went for a 50th birthday brunch – it was a lovely experience. The food has always done just right and every egg is cooked the way you want it. The bottomless $10 mimosas and $5 buddies are enough reason to go. Classic dishes like eggs Benedict are fantastic but they are known for their giant pancakes. Lunches are also great – especially the club sandwich. The servers work their tails off – sometimes it can be slow but only because they’re so busy – but absolutely no fault of the servers.
We encountered the same issues we have experience at Harbor Point Lighthouse Bar & Grill: a long wait to be seated even with our reservation, and an even longer wait for our food to be served. Management needs to examine its hospitality policies and practices.
The food was delicious! Service fantastic!
My husband loved the Filet Mignon, I loved the Salmon
Stephanie made perfect cocktails.
We really enjoyed everything about this place
A bit out of the way from the main dining area; if not for OpenTable, we'll not find this place. Nice view from our outside seating. Great service. We'll consider coming back when in the area.
Fantastic food, great location, torn between keeping this relatively unknown gem a secret & telling everyone about it
Great outdoor atmosphere and the food is delicious. Super waterfront location.
This is our third time here. The views are great. Service good and food has been amazing. Will go back.
Amazing food, ambiance and service!
Lovely ambiance & delicious food, especially the seafood pasta. The pork chop is scrumptious, drinks are superb & the desserts are divine!
The setting by the water and ambience is worth the trip. The service was friendly but a little rough. They got our order wrong (delivered wrong menu item) and were nice about trying to make it up to us, but it was frustrating since we actually discussed the details of the menu item and wanted what we ordered. The food was ok (seafood soup was good, crabcakes were average, burger was good). There was a lot of garlic in our food, which I don't tolerate well but I also feel like it is overused as flavor enhancer and think it can be a crutch. Cocktails were nice, pour felt a little light. We'll probably give it another shot and recommend for lunch or cocktails and apps by the water.
Terrific food, friendly service, casual atmosphere!
Hate to post a review for this place as I'd rather it remained our little secret. It's very decent food, great service, a lovely view and the prices are very fair. Best of all there's almost always room and nobody seems to know about it - let's keep it that way, please don't go ;-)
We just love the Lighthouse for the great food. Always well prepared, fresh and tasty. The best are their danish meatballs and for dessert the apple pocket with vanilla ice cream. Service is always very friendly and the view is beautiful right by the water. Any time again!
The overall four stars reflects the outstanding service and the view from the deck. Inside I wouldn’t go higher than three. The serving staff was above and beyond good and so friendly. They’re attentive and made us feel special. The view from the deck is awesome - right on the water with placid bay waters and lovely houses and trees all around.
The food (we had brunch) was ok. My husband has a scramble that was good - I had a pancake and fruit and the pancake was dense and cheery. Not so good. But coffee was good and service made the overall worth the cost. It’s a tad higher but then again it’s also Mill Valley!
We might go back but I wouldn’t rush.
Love the deck & location
Excellent as usual and for a lunchtime outing the location could not be better.
Might not have been their best night. Food was good but service was not. This is the restaurant to a tennis and swim club and they kind of obviously treated the members they new better than us.
Ordered a glass of wine. It was corked. Ordered another and it was too. At that point I didn't return the second but ordered a cocktail. The second glass sat on my table untouched and our server never asked if there was a problem with it or anything. It was as if the person never noticed. (By the way, they should probably not keep their open bottles of red wine in front of a window. )
Took an hour to get two salads and bowl of chowder.
Again, we may. have just hit a bad night (which happens) but it is not a place we will try again.
Beautiful view with delicious food and great service! We will be back.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome.Outstanding,friendly service.Food delicious.I took guests and the two words they used after dining there,
Service was great and food was delicious. Definitely will go back when in the area. Beautiful outdoor area as well
A little off the beaten path, but the food was excellent, at a table on the water made it worth the drive from the East Bay.
Socially distanced outdoor dining with a water view. Kind and attentive staff.
Food is always excellent. We had brunch items and all was good except for the coffee. They always serve us room temperature old bitter coffee and we have to ask for fresh brewed. It seems they brew a whole vat in the morning so if you go after 1pm, you get the leftovers, which is not great for Sunday Brunch.
Great addition of the violinist. Nice to hear live music!
Such a beautiful Sunday sitting on the water eating yummy food and drink. It was a very friendly and upbeat staff during these trying times.
Beautiful setting. Delicious food. Good service. Good value.
Nice casual place with amazing views
I took my wife here for Brunch, great service, food and drinks. We will definitely be back
I was impressed by the service, the food and the view on the outside deck! The men in the group are committed to returning.
When I asked our waiter, Matteus, what makes it ‘Danish Style’ Schnitzel, his response was ‘ I don’t know, I’m not Danish’.
Then he forgot to bring the toast and the coffee. When we asked someone else for the coffee, he brought a room temperature bitter coffee.
Otherwise the view was nice, setting was serene and the food excellent. Maybe the capers made it Danish style?
The omelette was also good and the coffee once we got a freshly brewed one.
Great food and service. This was our second time here. Very peaceful sitting along the water. Server very good. Will go back again.
Great ambience. Loved sitting outside on the deck overlooking the water.
Really great grill food I a terrific setting. Friendly people.
Great Find... The waitress was lovely, chatty and pleasant. The food was excellent (we had brunch). Set in beautiful surroundings - we had a seagull visitor to our hightop table! And he was very well behaved! They serve bottomless mimosas (what more can I say?!)
A great way to split up our Sunday morning hike along the Bay Trail
