  • Interesting! It’s best if you are in pretty good shape to climb to the top of the lighthouse. Breathtaking views once you reach the top!

  • My husband and I loved the visit. Beautiful area and a nice walk around the grounds. The people that work there are very knowledgeable. The lighthouse is 203 steps up and its a climb. Luckily there are landing to take a little break. Older people, kids, and a woman with a cast went up so its not impossible. It gets a little hot going up but once at the top its such a beautiful view. Definitely worth the trip.
  • I loved it here the service was amazing food was amazing. I lived the view with all the water and pelicans. Everything was super clean even the parking lot we had the gator bites which tasted pretty fresh. The prices for the food was adequate not to expensive for what you get. The place was busy but not crowded. Our good came out very fast I think it's safe to say I would continue going there. I would be happy to recommend this to any of my friends. If you want good food and be able to relax this is a great place
