After several recommendations....and checking out Trip Advisor, of course....I picked Lighthouse for our wedding anniversary dinner. Boy, was that the best choice ever. Our server was just amazing. I think her name was Jackie or something like that. She gave us enough time in between cocktails, apps, dinner and desert for us to be able to enjoy our delicious food... More

Nestled on the east shoreline of a small lake in Northwest Indiana, the Lighthouse Restaurant in Cedar Lake raises the bar for dining experiences. The atmosphere boasts midwest hospitality with exceptional customer service. Although the menu is versatile, The Lighthouse is predominantly a steak and seafood restaurant that never disappoints the palate. Decorated with a nautical theme, the bar is... More

Beautiful setting. Decorated to the max for Christmas. Wait staff average. Tables are bussed quickly. For a fine dining restaurant ,pace is hectic. Server takes order and others deliver. You do not get the personalized service. My fish special was over cooked. My wife's filet and lobster was not very good. Lobster was over cooked and dry. Filet was not... More

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

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
