The service was great, our food was very good and the setting was lovely. The interior is designed to look like like the inside of a ship with dark polished wood and views of Ohio scenery. It was quite busy, but not too loud to...More

Friendly staff. Food was good but rather pricey. They dont have military discounts, but give one if you accidentally pick this restaurant while you're in uniform. Tilapia entree was good and the meatloaf was a large portion.

My husband and I stopped for lunch at Don's Lighthouse today. He had the fish and chips; I had the scallops. The scallops were fine, but the rice pilaf that came with my entree had an off taste and the grains of rice on the...More
