We made the mistake of stopping at the first place we saw open for dinner, the Lighthouse Restaurant in Seal Harbor.  We should have known when the waiter didn’t even acknowledge us when we walked in that this was not the place for dinner.  The restaurant only had two other tables of customers and it took over 30 minutes for our appetizers to come out.  Our dinner came with salads and instead of bringing them and the bread out first, we just sat there & waited.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Lobster Stew

The stuffed mushrooms were ok, but their version of lobster stew just didn’t compare at all to the others we’d eaten during our trip.  I don’t know what was missing, but it just wasn’t up to expectations. The bread was very herbaceous which overwhelmed the honey butter served with it.



Loren ordered the peppercorn steak.  It was not quite the medium he ordered and not a very tender piece of meat.  I ordered the seafood alfredo.

Peppercorn Steak

Seafood Pasta

This was awful.  The pasta was overcooked and the alfredo sauce was thin and watery.  The seafood all tasted like it had been boiled. We just couldn’t wait to get out of there.  Worst meal of the trip and $74 to boot.
