We showed up with about 30 people from our hockey team, pretty much un-expected for lunch over the weekend. The Lamplighter was excellent. Their service was top notch. All of our food came out correctly, all of our bills were correct (not an easy feat when kids are not sitting with parents). I have had several team meals at restaurants... More

Apparently, this is where a lot of locals go. We went on a Sat. night and the place was busy. We got in right away though. I had a Frisco Melt and my bf, the Spaghetti. My burger was very good, done between medium and medium rare, like I like them. My fries, meh. But, I did order the seasoned... More

It was an ok restaurant. It tasted like average bar food. Unfortunately my brothers order of food wasn't delivered until everyone in our family was already finished. So that put a damper on our experience there. Our waitress wasn't very attentive either.

The staff made it seem like we were an interruption rather than their clients. Took too long to order and get the food. The meal itself was neither good nor bad, typical bar food.

We went here and had a late dinner. Food was typical bar food but was decent. We would go back if we are in town.

We pass through the area a lot so we've eaten at the Lamplighter several times - guess I've never officially reviewed it? Huh - How about that... Anywho, it's fine as far as these type of places go. Their various foods have never been bad, but nothing really stands out either, so, hence the average rating.

This is a great go to spot in New Ulm looking for a good meal at a good price. Their portions are on the larger side and they have a large selection from burgers, chicken sandwiches, entrees and appetizers. There is always something on the menu for everyone. Be sure to check out the local Schell's beer on tap. Most... More

This is a great spot for lunch in downtown New Ulm. The food was good and served promptly. Our waitress was very attentive.

If it's a huge hamburger with all the fixings or a lunch plate special at a reasonable price, this is definitely the place to go. Shell's beer is on tap and that's a definite plus.
