    It is the end of their season for the restaurant, so a few items that our party wanted where not available. I had the same meal as previous and the sauce was lacking and food was dry.

    Nice spot to watch the sunset if you can get a table on the enclosed patio by the water. Service was very slow. It took over 1:20+ minutes from the moment we sat down to when we got our food. Menu is limited, and they were out of a couple of items (no scallops, no fish, ...). Like everybody else these days, they were short staffed, and our server did her best. We came by boat and had to dine and dash to make it back before dark.

    Not a large venue, has an interesting and varied menu. Service was excellent, and our server pleasant. Steaks were cooked to our satisfaction, and the lemon parsley potatoes were a treat. The complementary dessert was welcome, as we were celebrating our anniversary. The view was great, overlooking the lake. We would go there again.

    Nice setting where the restaurant is facing the waterfront. Busy as expected for a Friday night, people appeared genuinely happy with the restaurant. Portions were small given the price, steak was a little tough for medium. No availability for mushrooms as an add on. I also thought the beer prices were high compared to other restaurants.

    We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The food did not disappoint! The lighthouse has a gorgeous view of Stoney Lake. It was our first time there and it was obvious that it caters to boaters. It could have had a bit better atmosphere/ambience given its unique setting but we enjoyed our dinner very much.

    A very disappointing experience. Music was loud and not conducive to dining. Server initially brought the wrong wine, which was no big issue, but then forgot the second glass of beer. The food took forever to come and no apology or recompense. Will never go back again. KAR

    Hello Thank you for your feedback. It saddens me that you did not enjoy your experience. There are lower tables available if needed, they are just not outside. We have the high-top tables outside for a better view of the lake. We look forward to seeing you again.

    Service was super slow. 3 of us ordered steak and they were all poor quality. Steak was very thin and overdone. Lobster tails were super small with hardly any meat and overcooked , hard to pull or of tail. Very disappointing again as we were giving this restaurant a second chance. Very poor quality for a steakhouse. Would not recommend at all. We will not be back.

    We had a wonderful meal there. However there was aTV and speaker right over our table which probably doesn’t need to be there. Such a beautiful view, ditch the tv and move the speaker away from the conversation area. The waitresses were very under staffed but did an amazing job. Kudos.
