A truly unique and fun experience. We had a beautiful weather day for our lunch. Everything was ready for us on arrival and we had great food from Angie’s. Our hostess, Robin was fantastic and a lot of fun. It is somewhat physically challenging to get to the top (especially the short ladder at the very top) but well worth the effort!

I purchased this as a Christmas gIft For my wife and we took another couple with us. The day was clear and around 70 deg so it was perfect to go out on the catwalk and take in the sights. We had a three course lunch that was very good from Angie's Food Diner. We started with a couple of sample appetizer plates, then on to Lobster salad rolls and stake tips that was very good then on to apple Pie and whip cream could have been Ice cream but that's alright was stuffed by then. It was BYO so we had some wine and selsa drinks. I will note bring people you like because it is not very big about 7' across inside. The catwalk was narrow also but sufficient to take in the views of the town and harbor. Be ready for stairs and ladder to get up into the lighthouse and a crawlspace to get out on the cat walk,brings out the kid in you. Enjoy. PS, I would like to try a dinner there.

We went when it was hot and the air conditioner turned on but was a joke -it did not work. So we had a Less than good time. Beautiful view but on side of the table has a site that only one person can sit on if you a good size or to smaller people but not when your sweating. Not pleasant ! Waitress was pleasant but forgot that my husband had allergies & served the wrong salad.

Everything was beautiful. We had a lovely lunch and Robin, our host, could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend! Note: you do need to be relatively fit and able to climb up narrow stairs and an 8 foot ladder through a hole to get into the dining area.

About The Lighthouse Preservation Society

For more than 30 years, The Lighthouse Preservation Society has worked to save and maintain the endangered lighthouses of the United States. The organization has spawned Congressional hearings and legislation sponsored National Lighthouse Day and aided in the creation of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act and the National Lighthouse Museum. The organization has also raised lighthouse awareness in the national consciousness, placing hundreds of lighthouses on the National Register of Historic Places and landing the most scenic ones on popular U.S. Postage stamps. This is all in addition to the ongoing preservation efforts; to date, the organization has raised nearly $6 million for more than 160 lighthouse-restoration projects. It's little wonder that the nonprofit was chosen as a recipient of the prestigious Presidential Achievement Award for its efforts to maintain America's coastal heritage.

Even when a lighthouse guides its last ship, the organization keeps its spirit alive through creative adaptive reuse projects. They take special pride in their private dining program, headquartered in the Newburyport Lighthouse on Massachusetts' North Shore. Named the 'Most Romantic and Exclusive Dining' in the region by Boston's Phantom Gourmet for two consecutive years," and lauded by Yankee Magazine as a "glass-enclosed love nest," the intimate multicourse meals pair dishes from sea and land with views of the historic town harbor and picturesque beaches. The cozy circular room nestled at the top of the lighthouse retains its functional panoramic views, but also features comforts including padded benches, a dining table, a music system, and a climate control system. There's even an outdoor balcony, giving diners the chance to feel the ocean breezes from 60 feet in the air.
