We have dined at the Lighthouse several times on different occasions, food here is very good, from the steaks, to the seafood entrees, to the desserts. Love the service there...

The food is marvelous, however, I have been there on three occasions when I had reservations and had to wait 1 1/2 hours even though I had reserved.

My friends parents recently moved to St. John, IN from Chicagoland. I've heard great things about this place and have been wanting to go, I finally did. It lived up to the hype. Buffalo shrimp appetizer was excellent. The lobster bisque was very tasty, it wasn't as chunky as I hoped for. I had the macadamia crusted walleye, which was... More

We have dined at the Lighthouse several times over the years. The food here is superb, from the steaks (a must-have), to the seafood entrees, to the desserts. They have a large bar and offer local craft beers from the many breweries we have here in northwest Indiana. The servers are friendly, the lakeside views are beautiful. We introduce the... More

I have finally found a very good restaurant scratch that great restaurant in Indiana. Lighthouse Restaurant in Cedar Lake was phenomenal from the atmosphere to the service you can't go wrong. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the fish was good, the appetizers were great, the beer, and wine selection fantastic. The prices for being a restaurant that doesn't call... More

A popular place with a two-tier menu. You can get sandwiches, burgers, mac & cheese and the like for $10-$15. And then there's steak, seafood, and the like for about twice that. Food was pretty good--a vegan friend got a portabella mushroom sandwich that was "amazing". I loved my 4-cheese mac and cheese. Perch was good; nothing great. Quantities are... More

Stopped here for Sunday lunch. Wife had the petite filet with sides and I had the Perch with sides. Simply excellent food, more than ample serving sizes, and very good and attentive waitstaff. Not for dining on a budget but high quality steaks (tender, juicy and tasteful) and my Perch was very good. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I have never been disappointed by this restaurant, the food and service have always been some of the best, and our last visit was no exception. We wanted to go to the Lighthouse once again while the weather was still nice enough to sit outside, in an rocker along the water, with a drink, and enjoy the beautiful sunset. Every... More

Food was great from the stuffed mushrooms to the walleye. Our server was very attentive and made sure we were taken care of. It's a fantastic place to spend an evening dining.
