Walk in for dinner and place was empty. Reminded me more about of a bar than restaurant. The Tv was blasting a football game. Ordered grill chicken and club sandwich. Food was ok but there are better places to try.

The Palm Room is the in-house restaurant at the Lighthouse Inn, and while having a limited menu, does a very good job with what they offer. I had the steak, and it was quite good, as were the added grilled shrimp.

The staff were friendly and attentive, the appetizers were pretty good. The steak was not. The menu is very limited as well with only 5 or 6 dinner options.

My husband had the steak which appeared to be raw. It was not bloody but was not cooked properly. The broccoli had the large stalks and were too tough to eat. It had no flavor and had to ask for butter for it. The service was very good.

We were guests at the Lighthouse Inn and used a promotional voucher toward dinner our first night. Enjoyed the New York strip and Grilled Shrimp Salad. Fun to sit/eat at the bar, although the venue also offers bay view seating.

We've dined in the Palm room many times in the past. The food had always been good. The last few stays had stated they had a limited menu, disappointing. This time we were happy to see a full menu offered. My husband placed an order for the steak for him and grilled shrimp for me to bring back to the... More

On previous stays at the Lighthouse, the steaks were always my favorite. The meal is easily enough for two. They don't skimp on anything!

Slow to be seated, slow to take orders, slow to get drinks, an hour to get food and all we had was appetizers and salads. Loaded potato skins are great! Ice tea is horrible! Tasted instant. Had to ask for silverware after the food came out. They ran out of cloth napkins. Iced tea was still on bill after being... More

It was a slow Tuesday night for the The Palm Room, but it still took a while to get our food. It had a lot to be desired. We ordered the grilled shrimp with baked potato. I had the potato skins which were overcooked and hard to cut with a fork. Grilled shrimp were okay, but the garlic butter had... More
