My boyfriend and I had been here before awhile ago and had enjoyed the skirt steak. Last night we started with the grilled shrimp, I had the fish and chips. He had the grilled branzino. We both enjoyed our meals. I would recommend reservations as it gets crowded. It is a little pricey which is why I would give it only 4 stars.

Went over the weekend with friends and family- about six of us all over the area came there to meet for dinner. Before making the reservation we called and asked if they can accommodate two of the guests with food allergies- they said yes.
We get to the restaurant and again to the host we explain the allergies, then about 2 to 3 times to the server. He even went back to the kitchen to check on the dish that was in question for my friend's food allergy.
She ate about 3/4 of her meal and realized there was gluten in the meal after we reiteratd it about 6 to 7 times throughout the night.
The server was apologetic as he keyed in the allergies for both me and my friend however management didn't apologize, he came over and asked her IF SHE WANTED ANOTHER DISH!!! She has a severe gluten allergy, she was already not feeling good as you could see in her face she was scared and hes asking her to eat more?!? The only thing he did was take her food off the bill, no one came back to check on her or apologize again. I have had a couple times in my life where a kitchen didn't pay attention to the allergies but this was by far the worst i've seen with a management handling such a major screw up. will never go back to this restaurant and definitely will not be recommending it.

I enjoyed dinner and a few beers with a friend here recently. The Lighthorse is tad more refined and elegant than most bars in the area, and actually had someone playing the baby grand piano when we were in. Decent beer selection, particularly in bottles, and the bar staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I tried the meatloaf, which came wrapped in bacon, and was bursting with rich flavours, just as I like it.
