While I have been here for special occasions, such as wedding showers, this is the first time for dinner. I have to say, for a weekday evening, it was busy. We had reservations, so we were seated promptly. For dinner I ordered the crab cakes and they were delicious. As a matter of fact, everyone in our group said their... More

Pretty view of lake and nautical decor with a vintage wooden speed boat for a bar and host desk. The steak was great. Hope to go back when I am in the area again.

My wife and I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is delicious! The atmosphere is spot on! The views of the lake are awesome! We dine here often for date nights and we held our wedding reception here! The shrimp cocktail is our favorite appetizer and the Filet Mignon is always tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion!

We have been to this restaurant at least five times. We have tried the seafood twice and were not impressed. Their hamburger is really delicious and I wasn't sure I'd like it on the ciabatta bun but I did. (The menu says it's a 1/2 pound burger but it didn't seem like it to us). I got the Lighthouse Angus... More

We were given a delicious meal of pretzel rolls, salad, filet mignon, baked potato and green beans along with assorted beverages. Food was very good. Staff were pleasant and attentive.

Super view of Cedar Lake for dining tonight. Nice fairly priced wine selection then appetizers including calamari with some hot pepper mixed in, warm crab spread with ciabatta bread, and coconut shrimp. Entrees for my party were crab cakes which were well proportioned with lump crab meat. Filet mignon was as good as any you get in Chicago. So tender... More
