Lighthouse Inn Waterfront Restaurant Review

My family enjoyed dinner at the Lighthouse Inn Waterfront Restaurant during our stay at Cape Cod. We received our meals to facilitate this post.

Our fist impression was “WOW” from the beautiful lighthouse to the gorgeous scenery. Upon arrival, we were greeted by beautiful, live piano music.

P1100083There isn’t a bad seat in the restaurant, with large windows to take in the panoramic ocean view.

P1100087While we were there, a wedding reception was set up in a private dining room – it looked gorgeous.

P1100085We were seated promptly on their outdoor deck to take in the panoramic ocean view.  The Waterfront offers a relaxed atmosphere that isn’t often found at oceanfront restaurants.

P1100102 P1100090The secluded 9 acre beach and rock pier was peaceful and simply gorgeous.

Our waitress, Janesta was very friendly and attentive to our family.  We started dinner with hot mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce and their popular garlic ciabatta bread. It was a welcomed treat for my hungry family. My kids espeically liked the mozzarella sticks.

P1100100During our appetizer, we witnessed a beautiful ocean side wedding. If you are looking for a Cape Cod ocean wedding location, check out the Lighthouse Inn – it was gorgeous!

For dinner, I ordered the Seafood Lighthouse which was an enourmous meal of shrimp, scallops, and mussels with fresh vegetables over penne pasta with marinara. It was so fresh and delicious with large pieces of seafood to my utter delight!

P1100115My daughter enjoyed pasta marina with a side salad. The marina sauce was delicious – as I had a sample.  They offer a variety of kids menu items, I was happy to see healthier choices like the one my daughter chose. P1100125My husband enjoyed the special of the day of Rosemary lamb with the house specialty rice pilaf and fresh steamed broccoli. The lamb was tender with a flavorful sauce.

P1100107My son loves seafood and trying new things. Instead of a kids meal, he opted for a kids size portion of their Twin Seafood Cakes. Made with shrimp, scallops and crabmeat and sauteed golden brown, he ate every last bite. It is served with a chipotle aioli that spiced it up a bit, which was perfect for his taste buds – he is like his dad and likes a little spice!  If crabcakes are too ‘fishy’ for you, the twin seafood cakes offer a milder mix that taste amazing. It came with hot french fries too.Cape Cod Ocean Side Restaurant
