We arrived without reservations about 6 on a Saturday and had a 15 minute wait. We were seated in the Captain’s Room where there are only six tables, dark paneling and a view of the lake. It has a very different feel than the more...More

Before this review is dismissed as coming from some kind of malcontent, I invite you to read my numerous reviews of restaurants all over the world. I don't think I have ever given even a "poor" rating to any of them. We have been coming...More

Great food and atmosphere. Large outdoor patio for nice days. Bar is a bit pricey. Always good specials.

The food is above average. However, if you want to carry on a conversation with your other guests, bring a megaphone. This is the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in during prime dining time. So loud it takes away from the quality of the...More

Couldn't ask for more beautiful scenery. If you want service the lighthouse restaurant can't be beat. Appetizers were a meal in themselves. Such a variety, you can dine casually on hamburgers or have an extra special evening enjoying the best seafood around.

Had a wonderful meal at Lighthouse. We were there just as the sun was setting over the lake, which always provides fantastic scenery. The meal was delicious, ribeye, and the service was fantastic. I look forward to my next meal there.

We eat at this restaurant on special occasions, Birthday, Anniversaries, graduations and the like. It's pricy but well worth it. A great menu featuring steaks and sea food!!!!

Had my daughter-in-law's baby shower here this weekend and everything was perfect! I had searched other venues and the Lighthouse was very fair in their pricing & you can't beat the location views! Candy helped me co-ordinate everything and answered all my concerns and questions...More

Very casual. In fact there is a dock to park your boat in the summer. ! I would say dressy casual if you have dinner plans. No shoes, no shirt , no service!😀
