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!

First of all I got to bring this up on the menu Under the Sea Food available it states we use the freshest fish available are you kidding me it should be we used to fresh fish fish. Not available just poor wording in my opinion. So the stay on the seafood issue I believe they should maybe check their... More

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

Attended a financial seminar at The Lighthouse this week and met in their upper banquet room. 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. Hostesses were friendly upon arrival and at departure. This is a great place for... More

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

After several recommendations....and checking out Trip Advisor, of course....I picked Lighthouse for our wedding anniversary dinner. Boy, was that the best choice ever. Our server was just amazing. I think her name was Jackie or something like that. She gave us enough time in between cocktails, apps, dinner and desert for us to be able to enjoy our delicious food... More

Nestled on the east shoreline of a small lake in Northwest Indiana, the Lighthouse Restaurant in Cedar Lake raises the bar for dining experiences. The atmosphere boasts midwest hospitality with exceptional customer service. Although the menu is versatile, The Lighthouse is predominantly a steak and seafood restaurant that never disappoints the palate. Decorated with a nautical theme, the bar is... More

Beautiful setting. Decorated to the max for Christmas. Wait staff average. Tables are bussed quickly. For a fine dining restaurant ,pace is hectic. Server takes order and others deliver. You do not get the personalized service. My fish special was over cooked. My wife's filet and lobster was not very good. Lobster was over cooked and dry. Filet was not... More
