I had about the best fish sandwich I've ever had here. The salad was good but the chili was way too spicy. Another in our party had the loaded waffle cone which was very good other than the waffle cone falling apart. All in all,...More

We ordered 4 classics twice while staying in Trinidad (7/21, 7/23), eight dinners total. Some of the best fish we've ever had. We are from Roseville and have dined at many restaurants in the area. The Lighthouse was recommended by the owner of Bishop Pine...More

Great food, using quality ingredients - homemade ice cream was exceptional. Very family friendly and obviously a local favorite. Friendly service. Only thing that would make it better for me would be heaters out on the patio. But I lucked out and got a seat...More

Root beer on tap from the Lost Coast Brewery was delicious! Best part of whole meal. Food was tasty, lots of options for the vegan and gluten free. Staff could be a little friendlier.

Stopped here to have dinner after a long day seeing the redwoods. Cheeseburger was simple, but excellent​ - no frills just locally sourced, grass-fed beef and melted cheese. Ice cream was also good. I would definitely come back.

We really enjoyed our breakfast here before hiking the trail up the hill nearby. Great selection of omelette, pancakes and waffles along with all the trimmings. Friendly, helpful staff with great recommendations for area activities. This is our second visit and we'll be back!

Simple but very tasty food. We had very delightful salmon sandwich. Fish and chips was okay but a bit too greasy for our liking. Long wait but compensated with some free ice cream. Location is on a big parking opposite the local supermarket, a bit...More
