Nestled on a corner of Water Street, the Lighthouse offers a nice view. However the ambiance reflects the low prices. The food is certainly adequate and a bargain for the price. Not a fine dining restaurant, but it doesn't pretend to be that, either. All in all, a good, solid place to eat and enjoy the view.

Clean premises and simple down home style food. Our only complaint was that our server was very uptight and made us feel unwelcome. He showed us a table and said he was busy and would be back. He came back once to see if we were ready and when we hesitated he rushed away again. I could see his mental... More

The noodle chicken soup is spicy and flavorful - call ahead or plan for some extra time as it takes a while to prepare, but totally worth the wait. Way better than the local Pho, in a funky diner. Ambiance is a little lacking so I took a star off - but the service is friendly!

Good to see a very hard working owner doing well in this small establishment. Food was freshly prepared for breakfast and coffee was excellent.

I took my disabled sister here last year and we had a simple fair of burgers and fries, but they made us feel like we were the star guests in a 5 star restaurant! I love this place and absolutely adore the experience. We will be heading there today after window shopping!

Even though 5 of us went in for breakfast, he was able to manage us all. The food was great and would go again next time in town

Very good food. Not spectacular atmosphere, but good food on a budget. Also beautiful views of the water. I recommend.

Haven't been there in years but used to eat there all the time. It's the same as it always was its just simple and good and it always evokes memories of the years there, my grandparents...my childhood. My mother and I had lunch there today on a day trip to visit other family. It was great as always. Not fancy,... More

Our regular Port Townsend restaurant was not open until noon last Monday. It was only after 11 am and were hungry after an early start on our motorcycles. Lighthouse was close and open. We could have had breakfast but opted for lunch. Clean little place..the cook was also the host and server. Running solo! Nice job. The Lighthouse offers views... More
