We love this place. Everyone is so warm and friendly and the food is excellent. Close to the north entrance of Yellowstone Park. It's a traveler's delight! Make sure to check their months of operation. They close in the off season.

Mixed menu with a Montana west of Thailand bent. Unfortunately they ran out of the curry, but the waiter recommended a fine Thai dish. Great value and food.

This is an appreciation letter concerning the staff on June 24, 2016. We came upon this place after parking the RV below the hill near the river and went for a walk and there it was, the LIGHTHOUSE. We walked in and sat down and then it all began. This beautiful, friendly, smiling hostess showed up and her name was... More

We had gotten a recommendation from a local guide for the Lighthouse Restaurant for bison and elk burgers the previous day; since it was a drive out of town, we settled for somewhere else and came to the Lighthouse the following day. Also, we had gotten a flyer from their marketing intern …. So after satisfying our burger craving, we... More

Overall my partner and I were pleasantly surprised and loved everything about it. However our server Gabriella made the experience a delight. She was perfect in the way she approached us, served us. She is a gem, we wish all servers were that committed and courteous, kind and tuned in to be a excellent server. We love to ask questions... More

I went here with my mom and sister after driving all day through Montana. In the dark, it would have been easy to pass if not for the use of my phone. I'm really glad we stopped in though. My steak was cooked to perfection!

Nicely decorated restaurant with a very interesting menu and wonderful music to my taste. Sooo relaxing. I had the lamb curry - wonderful! My husband that the elk medaillon and was very happy. We shared tasty crabcakes for a starter and my husband was thrilled with his New York cheesecake. I would love to come back and recommend this restaurant... More

Just a few miles out of the town of Gardiner MT, We visited the restaurant because my wife requires gluten free food and we were tired of eating beef and bison burgers on a GF bun that is common gluten free food in downtown Gardiner MT. We wish we found the Lighthouse earlier in our vacation. Plenty of gluten free... More

This is a gem of a restaurant in the Gardiner, MT area. Wonderful food. We had the Bengal (?) entree which was delicious. For dessert we had the Old Faithful ice cream. For three people we ate for under $100 which included the tip. You have to try this restaurant.
