The Lighthouse restaurant has been in Wellfleet Center on the Cape since I was a child. I've always admired the Nauset Light on its roof and wondered what it would be like to eat at this restaurant. So, after so many years, I finally checked out The Lighthouse for lunch.

We were seated at a sunny table at the front of the house. To my right, the bar was buzzing with World Cup fans. It wouldn't be trip to the Cape without a lobster roll, so that's what I ordered. It usually comes with fries, but I substituted them for a salad with raspberry dressing. The lobster roll was fresh, with big chunks of lobster meat and I enjoyed the salad. 

The Lighthouse is open for all three meals. For breakfast, there are a number of omelets you can choose from or build you own. They also serve eggs any styple, French toast, pancakes (including plain, blueberry and M&M's) and a Belgian waffle. 

There are many soups on their lunch menu. There's clam chowder, lobster bisque and Portuguese kale soup. Apps include Wellfleet oysters, shrimp cocktail, mussels, calamari, chicken fingers and loaded fries. For lunch, choose from several burgers and classic sandwiches like a turkey club, tuna melt and a seafood reuben. Also on the menu, Cape Cod classics including fried clams and oysters plates. There are a bunch of salads on their menu including a cobb salad, waldorf with walnuts, apple & raisins and a spinach & goat cheese salad.

Dinner is served at 5 p.m. and includes much larger plates. There's Cioppino Pasta with lobster, shrimp, scallops, mussels and littlenecks. They also have lobster alfredo, broiled scallops, penne bolognese, jambalaya and steak tips. How good does all of that sound?

If you're in Wellfleet on a Thursday night, you might want to stop by for Mexican Night at The Lighthouse. On the menu: build your own tacos, quesadillas, nachos, enchiladas, fajitas and more.
