It is billed as fine dining, but would put it at mid-range. Most evenings you will need reservations. Food is good and atmosphere is nice, in good weather the porch is nice. Service is spotty

An out of the way, neat place. It also has a Tiki bar & restaurant down by the water. Fare runs from good down home cooking to fancier. All at good prices for what you get. If in the area, I recommend.

We are always so impressed when we go to the Lighthouse. What a treat to sit looking at the lake at sunset! We have never had a bad entree. Mahi mahi tacos are my favorite. Salads are great and the desserts are wonderful. You won't...More
