The Lighthouse - Piermont NY Dinner report

Michele Cindy | Sep 2, 2003 08:33 AM

I finally tried the Lighthouse AFTER steering a few people there. If those who went had a decent meal like we had and a beautiful weather night to sit outside, I think they would have been pleased, but not thrilled.
The service was excellent, the view was great, but some of the food potatoes, veg, and salad) reminded me of high end wedding catering. We started off with steamed cherrystone clams - juicy and tender w/really good clarified butter for dipping. The salad came with the meal, the dressing was a bit too vinegary, not enough flavor. My husband had Alaskan King Crab legs, a big portion, huge legs, 34.00. The dish came with a potato. The potato was wrapped in foil, which I personally do not like. It makes me nervous if they aren't on top of keeping them fresh, but it seemed fresh, and no one got sick... I ordered the batter dipped fried orange roughy, this was one of the BEST pieces of fried fish I've had in many years. It was a perfectly crisp casing around a super moist fish. I'd go back for this in a second, it was SO good. The tarter sauce was crumby standard sweet stuff. It would have been more perfect with some malt vinegar, but there was none to be found. Dessert was lacking too, standard dishes, we opted for the cheesecake, it was ehh. There was also a guitarist playing 70's type of stuff, who was good. The bill came to 89.00 including drinks.
