It’s never going to win any food innovation awards and the service could be lots better. However if you’re looking for a cost effective option in an otherwise expensive eating area then you can’t go wrong. The food was fresh and the restaurant clean. All...More

Is the Lighthouse buffet great? No, not really. Is it bad? No, certainly not bad. I met up with some old friends and we decided to each pay our own way for food. No one wanted to spend HUGE amounts of money on food -...More

Considering the other restaurants are expensive, I was very surprised what good value this buffet was. Fabulous choice for meats and fish and salads A few more veg would have been appreciated. Great service. As usual, I stuffed myself silly!!

We stopped to eat a quick bite and look at the sites. The buffet was good, not great but good. Some food was fresh and some was a little dry from sitting under the heat lamp a little too long. All and all, not bad.

This is a great buffet on the Kemah boardwalk that is owned by the Landry chain. It had a wide variety of salads, seafood, steak, and desserts. Price was $15.95 for adults and is a good value for that area.
