We needed A bite took eat after arriving in town and wanted to try something local, not a chain. My friend ordered the special...beef tips on gravy on mashed potatoes and I had a burger. Both of us liked our food. I expected a better tap beer selection but they did have Schell's Maifest on tap.

I went here a few months ago with some friends for drinks. While it was a little noisier than I like, the atmosphere was pretty relaxing and the wait staff was absolutely amazing. Definitely now one of,my favorite places in new ulm.

Great place to go with a family, co-workers or after a Harley ride with great friends. Food is good. Wings are my favorite. Burgers are good too.

I visited here while on a business trip needing something quick to eat. I got the hot ham and cheese on ciabatta bun with homemade potato salad. The food was delicious and the service was quick. The waitress we had was very pleasant and cheery. I would definitely be visiting again when in New Ulm.

The food is excellent, service is good, and price is ok. They are known for their hamburgers. But I like their pastas.

We showed up with about 30 people from our hockey team, pretty much un-expected for lunch over the weekend. The Lamplighter was excellent. Their service was top notch. All of our food came out correctly, all of our bills were correct (not an easy feat when kids are not sitting with parents). I have had several team meals at restaurants... More

Apparently, this is where a lot of locals go. We went on a Sat. night and the place was busy. We got in right away though. I had a Frisco Melt and my bf, the Spaghetti. My burger was very good, done between medium and medium rare, like I like them. My fries, meh. But, I did order the seasoned... More

It was an ok restaurant. It tasted like average bar food. Unfortunately my brothers order of food wasn't delivered until everyone in our family was already finished. So that put a damper on our experience there. Our waitress wasn't very attentive either.

The staff made it seem like we were an interruption rather than their clients. Took too long to order and get the food. The meal itself was neither good nor bad, typical bar food.
