On our last afternoon we wandered the downtown and stopped for lunch. Food was delicious and the owner is amazing. Greeting her regulars by name and making us summer tourists very welcome. We will definitely stop there next summer!

I've been coming to Southampton since I was a child and had never tried The Lighthouse. Finally tried it on a Monday morning for breakfast. Good food! Really good pancakes. Service was ok. Fair prices. The lady who owns the place was quite nice too.

Big portions. Yummy roast turkey dinner. Quick service. Almost always open. Kids love their fries and chicken fingers. I prefer the chicken pocket sandwich (called the Dewy sandwich I believe) with a side salad.
