    There wasn't much of a selection of entrees. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria and in all honesty it was like a cheap white wine (didn't taste good at all). We shared a meal and they offered to divide it in kitchen for us and by the time it got to our table it was the size of a small appetizer. Needs less to say the plate was 40.00

    The menu online was nothing like the menu when we arrived. I don’t mind spending money on good food but this not at all worth the money spent. One upside, we were In and out in less than 30 minutes.

    Food was a good surprise. The hostess was rude and the waitress never greeted us. The one guy that was serving water to everyone took our order since no one had stopped at your table. As I said food was delicious - but that was it.

    This place is a mixed bag. They need to pick high end or country club vibe. It has both. With a little more thought this place could be really good.

    Repeat customers. Food and service were great and we enjoyed the live entertainment. 4 stars because the menu is much more limited than it used to be and they eliminated a few of our favorite dishes.

    Enjoyed excellent food at The Lighthouse Grill and excellent service from Dominic who looked after us so well. A nice concise menu with a good range of dishes with mass appeal. Good quality ingredients. I enjoyed a beautifully prepared sautéed Swordfish and other half Seared Salmon. Shared a very good Key Lime Pie. Nice setting looking out to the bay. Beautiful sunset, followed by a dramatic electrical storm out in the bay. Highly recommended if you are looking to dine in the area.

    We greatly enjoyed the fresh seafood, including ceviche, mahi, and scallops. However, everything else was not up to par for a fine dining experience. Seating options were either outside right next to the loud pool, or a small area inside which was nicely decorated, but very hot and humid. Service was poor outside, but eventually we were moved inside where it improved significantly. Despite how good the food was, I can't recommend spending $50 per person while dripping with sweat, especially when there are so many options in the keys

    Very disappointed in menu and portions. Ceviche was tasty but super small portion. Scampi was OK. however it didn't state on menu that it comes over pasta and being a gluten free diet that didnt go over well. bread was stale and my draft beer was sour. The grounds and restaurant are very nice,and great sunsets. but probably will not go back. 6/02/22

    Great food and Great service. Our server Dermond (hope I spelled it right). Was kind and patient (we had lots of questions). Smoked fish dip excellent, lollipop chicken excellent, the plantain appetizer, just so so I felt it was more of a dessert type dish (personal opinion). The grounds are beautiful.

    Visiting from California. It was a limited menu. our waiter said almost all of the dishes were new so I can’t compare but the dishes we had were awesome. Especially the plantain. Loved the outdoor setup, loved the live music. Our waiter was great, I wish I remembered his name, but he was young and mentioned he was working as a mate to work towards a charter captain cause thats what my husband does and mentioned.

    Drink specialties were excellent and reasonably priced. Smoked fish dip was excellent, the spicy kick was unique. The catch of the day was grilled with caper sauce on a bed of rice or mashed potatoes with asparagus- delicious. Service was excellent considering the labor shortage. We had reservations, however, many walk-ups were seated with a minimum or no wait time. Price points were acceptable for issues with availability and shipping shortages.
