Built in 1912, the Lighthouse Inn was originally a small little inn to enjoy dinner, drinks and maybe rent one of the cabins that use to sit behind the restaurant.
During prohibition it became a common stop for Chicago land mobsters looking to “beat the heat” until things cooled off back home in the Windy City.
Yes, Al Capone did dine here. As did John Dillenger. If you’re sitting in the booth to the left of the lounge entrance, that’s exactly where his gun went off and left a hole in the wall. No longer there it is still a part of our history.
On your way out, look to the left of the front doors and catch a glimpse of the way the Lighthouse use to look originally.
The two small stone lighthouses were destroyed when a truck driver fell a sleep at the wheel.
Those two lighthouses have long disappeared along with the cabins, but the great food remains. Please enjoy your dining experience here with us. We hope you return soon.
