I found myself having to turn around and wander through the parking lot for a moment to realize I was here.. The restaurant is plain on the outside but full of fine dining and great food on the inside.. This is a classy place with fabulous food. The food was very reasonable as well. The server was a bit of... More

Our party of six ordered the rib eye, halibut, sand dabs, and the center cut filet. Overall, the food was well prepared served by a highly competent staff. I deducted a point for the rather meager side dish portions. For example, I had maybe 1/2 cup of pilaf and four brussel sprouts (cut in half to make 8) with my... More

It would be sooooo delicious. Loved it. I had sand dabs and my friend the pork chop with a twice baked potato. Both were excellent. Our server was great and cute too. Even the bartender was super polite and made a wicked martini. I haven't been here in about 10 years but after this experience I will definitely return. This... More

We always enjoy dining at the Lime Lite. The staff there is very accommodating and they have some great menu items! Two of our favorites are the calamari and the sand dabs. They also have some excellent beef dishes. If you are looking for a more intimate local place, try this. You will not be disappointed!

I was looking for a place to have dinner and this place was recommended by a local so we gave it a try. What a great choice. The service was top notch and the food was fantastic. We both had the pork chop and it was great. The largest pork chop we had ever seen and it was soooo tasty.... More

Just loved it! Excellent service, not too pushy, but just when needed. Food was terrific. We had the Calamari appetizer which was tender and delicious, the beet and stone fruit salad, also yummy, and Prime Rib done perfectly. Wine list was excellent and served at correct temperature. Ambience lovely. Reservations at 7 pm, and we were ushered right in. All... More

I and co-workers dined here on a Thursday night at 7:00 pm. We sat on the "patio" which sported curtains, booths or tables with linen. The wine list provided a decent number of "by the glass" options. A few in our party ordered the Blackberry Mohito and it was excellent. We ordered the sweet potato fries, calamari and deep fried...

This was our first time coming here after hearing only good things about the Lime Lite. We had a very sweet and attentive server Samantha and she gave us great food suggestions and was very helpful all the way through. Started with sweet potato fries and artichoke hearts for our party of 4. They were so filling!!! So both of... More

As you walk in, you feel as if you are at the country club. Dark woods all around and a certain air of confidence and superiority emanating from the diners. I suppose it was because they knew they were in the right place! We sat at the bar and our server was accommodating and friendly. He recommended the Tri-Tip Sandwich... More
