The last time I ate there it was expensive and disappointing. The LIghthouse used to be one of the landmark restaurants around Cherokee County with family style dining. Now I would not recommend it.

Good Service. We stayed and watched the Friday Singing night. Despite the other review, did not see any big drinking. Serious singers, church-type.

Many choices available. Hamburgers are very good with natural cut fries. Onion rings are a good choice too. Fried chicken is cooked to order (broasted). Limited hours.

You will wait at least an hour for your food, no matter what you get. What we got was good (catfish and burger) but the wait is just ridiculous. If you need time to kill and are in no hurry than this is a good place.

Horrible place to stay and eat. Bugs in the restaurant and no one cares the service is horrible the rooms are outdated and stink drunks hang out there and fighting cats that keep you up. Do not ever go.

The restaurant is the only saving grace to the hotel. I have ate here many times and have not seen anything unsanitary. The food is always good and very reasonably priced. The staff could be more efficient and it truly could be so much more than it is.

went there on a Sunday and there were 3 kids running from the lake area outside into the kitchen and coming out with food in their hands and mouth. they did this about 4 times. I won't go there again. another time we had a young girl (about 9 or 10) serving us our drinks(non alcoholic).

Apparently we chose a bad night to try the lighthouse! They only had 3 people working total and we were told that the owner even left in the middle of a party's order! We sat for 2 hours waiting on the 14 oz ribeye, which was way overcooked, & popcorn shrimp. We didn't want to send the steak back in... More
