My husband and I just enjoyed a burger and fries tonight. The fog lifted, and the beer on tap was perfect!

What a creative plus an affordable diner. Everything we ordered was fantastic: the soup, the mashed potato cones (yes, cones made from corn flour with herbs filled with mashed potatoes and your options of beef, bacon, cheese and other tasty stuff), grilled cheese, burgers. Excellent homemade ice cream and flavors. We discovered this spot late during our visit, which was... More

Anyone visiting the Trinidad, CA area should stop at this small eatery. The menu is based on fresh items, they even make their own ice cream. We were told to try the mashed potato cone. They take corn bread batter and put it in a waffle maker to create the cone. Add mashed potatoes, gravy, bacon, cheese, and brisket and... More

Friendly service and fresh food. There were several choices for the homemade ice cream and it was really creamy. The waffle cones were fresh and delicious.

I am local to Humboldt County but had never tried the Lighthouse Grill until recently. Great food at a decent price, the salad I had there was honestly some of the best salad in the county... and the mashed potato waffle cones are GREAT! A fun twist on some classic foods. Only downside is it can be packed on a... More

Don't be fooled by the outward appearance of this restaurant! Though seating is limited, the casual atmosphere is delightful and great for a family dinner. All meals are freshly prepared so yes, you have to wait for it, and yes, it's worth it! Our daughter loved their milkshakes so much that she had to have another one as we left... More

Interesting menu, food was good. I had a mashed potato cone which was great. The Crab Melt was the highlight of the visit. We liked our experience here.

We live nearby and go here for lunch or a light dinner. Very nice, attentive staff and food is very good. I often go for the burger because I know I like them here, but always look at the specials especially if there is a fresh fish option. On a (rare?) warm sunny day, we sit outside but generally sit...

Upon reading all the great reviews, we were dying to try this place. I had a craving for fish and chips. The place was a bit busy but the wait wasn't very long. Our piping hot fish and chips were delivered to our table. They looked a little greasy and once they cooled enough that we could sink our teeth... More
