This was my first visit and I can't wait to go back. I had the Don's sampler for an appetizer. The shrimp cocktail, crab cake and bruschetta were fabulous! I also had the Bistro salad. It was wonderful. My entree was the Maine Lobster Tail....More

I had some appetizers and the crab cake was the best I ever had. So tasty and enough in size. I also had the Walleye for dinner. It took my breath away. The spices are just right and it was really a pleasure to dine...More

Friendly staff. Food was good but rather pricey. They dont have military discounts, but give one if you accidentally pick this restaurant while you're in uniform. Tilapia entree was good and the meatloaf was a large portion.

One of the best happy hours around. Appetizers are terrific. We especially like the mussels and the artichoke dip, but the sliders and crab cakes are excellent too. One crab cake fan says they are some of the best she has had. Good beer selection...More

Come dressed up, come business casual, come to enjoy amazing food. Don's Lighthouse is a landmark in the Edgewater Park neighborhood. Reservations recommended but walk in guests are always welcome. Super nice staff, cozy & comfortable seating. Although you are waited on hand and foot...More
