“So glad we had the opportunity to stop by. What an incredible experience! Excellent service, competent and very welcoming staff. It was a little hard to choose (everything looked delicious) and while the waiters were taking out other table orders, we were wondering if we should order something else or at least a takeout plate. If you are in Cleveland, Blue Point is a must at the top of your list. I can not wait to return to.” –Ernesto Baez

Don Lighthouse Grille

Don Lighthouse GrilleDon Lighthouse Grille has its fair share of rich beginnings. Don’s Lighthouse Grille has its origins in 1911, when German immigrant Otto Poschke started “Poschke’s Barbeque” at the height of Edgewater Park’s popularity. Otto was a popular streetcar driver on the old St. Clair Avenue route in the early 1900s. He married Elma in 1911, and the two opened a 10’x10′ “barbecue shack” at the northwest corner of Lake Avenue and Detroit Avenue at West 57th Street.

“While our waitress could have been a bit friendlier, the food certainly made up for her lack of personality. My husband and I both had lobster and it was the smoothest, most tender lobster tail I’ve ever had. I’ve ever had! I normally don’t like green beans, but these were quite delicious, although they could have used a little more seasoning. The mashed potatoes were divine! My martini at the pomegranate was also excellent!- Laurie Fox

“We went for the 7 course tasting and added the wine/cocktail pairing. This is one of the few places where I found cocktail pairings as an option. Our server Tony was awesome and made some great oyster suggestions. I would highly recommend making a reservation to sit at a window for a view of the river. Loved the food and overall experience!” – Cinara Foor
