We had dinner early on a Saturday evening with another couple.

However, this will likely improve once construction is completed. We had a reservation and were seated promptly at a very nice table with a view. The restaurant was about... More

We nearly always have dinner at the bar. Greg (bartender) is always attentive no matter how busy he is and for that we return over and over. The food is consistently very good. The owners are good people. Truly care about your experience. The best place to eat in the schenectady area.

Impromptu lunch at the Lighthouse! Outstanding service attention. Even the owners came out to greet and check on us. The menu was diverse. Had linguini with white clam sauce which filled the plate and was outstanding. Dining partner had a flat bread bruschetta which was great. Will be back
