We read up on lots of reviews good and bad but still wanted to give this restaurant a try. Nice - tasty - efficient + nice atmosphere (including a pianist) & decor. We thought it would be something different to try after a long day,...More

Were sent here by a couple of locals who raved about the terrific, eclectic menu. Half right. The place is weird (in a good way) and service was fine -- waiter was harried with too many tables, but kindly. But the food was just not...More

We had a terrific dinner at The Lighthouse! (Was recommended by Yellowstone Village Inn, which I highly recommend too!) The chef/owner prepares meals with love, very fresh, organic, grass-fed, Montana steaks, Idaho mashed potatoes, creamed spinach... just sorry I didn't try the Nutella crime brûlée....More

Someone told us this was a great place to eat. The food section was a big mix of odd stuff, and not that good! The shrimp were the thaw out kind,watery,I had the Elk steak,mushy. The pasta was fine.

From the outside it doesn't look like much. But the food is fabulous! Thai shrimp with mint -- superb! Four different entrees and we all were very happy. Desserts were also amazing. Creme Brulee was excellent as was the chocolate cake. Service was prompt and...More

They were open until 9:30 which is great after a day at Yellowstone Park. We liked the salmon dish and the lighthouse chicken and both were just perfect. The only thing lacking is alcohol- they don't even have wine and beer. But we'd go again...More
