I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by my visit here. The outside doesn't look like much, but the food was very tasty and portion size was great. I had 2 full slices of French Toast, 2 eggs, several pieces of bacon for under $6. A great bargain. I'm looking forward to seeing if lunch is as good as... More

Even though I and the child came in at the last minute, the staff took care of everything as if it was the start of the day instead of the closing. Our meal was prepared most excellent and we were able to take a carry out box for the child and myself.. Thank you Lamplighter!!!

Awesome food. I guess I'm just in love with the Turkey. Amber the waitress will even deliver is you have 3 or more orders. I love the choices and its all home cooked.

We stopped for breakfast in the mid morning before the lunch hour, the restaurant wasn't too busy at that time. I had eggs over easy, hash browns and sausage. The eggs were over hard, the sausage cool and the hash browns okay. The staff was very friendly and we will likely return at a different time to sample the other... More

We stopped by the Lamplighter for a quick lunch on a Monday. The restaurant was busy and there were 2 lunch specials, spaghetti or meat loaf. I chose the meatloaf and my friend selected the fish dinner on the menu. The waitress came by and got or orders fairly quickly but it took a while for the food to arrive.... More

Went to The Lamplighters based on TA reviews. We wanted to try something local rather than one of the chains we have done many times before. Physically, the place isn't much to look at...the decor is basic functional. The restaurant was filled with locals who all seemed to know each other and the serving staff. We clearly were not locals... More

Since I dine here at least once a month, I noticed the pictures for this venue were incorrect. I've added some I took on my last visit during October, 2013. These people make the best grits in town. The service is snappy and friendly. The food is consistently well prepared. They definitely aim to please and have a whole raft... More
