Nice quaint bar and restaurant. Bar is separate from restaurant. Awesome salad bar so ask about it. A little pricy but worth it. I have eaten here on s feral trips to Burlington and enjoyed each one.

We visited the restaurant twice on consecutive nights simply because there was not a lot of choice in the area. Although the outside was inviting the inside wasn't, I think there would be more light and atmosphere in a real lighthouse. The soup I had...More

We wanted salad, and the salad bar choices were reasonably fresh and varied. Our entrees (chicken and steak) were mostly forgettable. Chicken was slightly undercooked, and steak was a little tough. We stayed next door and at the end of a long day, laziness prevailed....More

We stayed in the attached hotel, and ate dinner at this restaurant as there is not much in the area. We ordered the cheese ale soup, which was pretty good, French onion soup that was not great, and crab cakes. The crab cakes were cold,...More

This is a rare time that the Trip Advisor reviews have steered me wrong. Staying next door. It was 7:15. Didn’t want to drive anywhere else. Walked over and waited to be greeted. Hostess said there was one other party ahead of us waiting for...More

I was surprised to see negative reviews for this restaurant. My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Inn next door and we walked over to this restaurant. You can get a 10% off coupon if you are staying at that hotel, just ask at...More

Very pricey for what you actually get. We spent $110 on two meals and if it wasn’t for the salad bar we would have left hungry. I ordered the baked seafood and it was pretty much tasteless and the side of hand cut fries hand...More
