The Lighthouse at Emily's would like to thank our staff and of course, our wonderful patrons for another great season! :)

As many of you know, there was a highly publicized interest between the North Shore Scenic Railroad and the building owner over the last year. Those negotiations came to an end Friday, Oct. 9, 2015 with no agreement to purchase the building. Since the building had gone for sale over a year ago, we found it very difficult to operate on a month to month lease. A decision has been made to close the doors for good at the end of this month.
Sunday, October 25th will be the last day of business, so that the building can be cleared by the 31st.

35 employees will be displaced by this unfortunate turn of events, however we are proud to go out "on top" of our game. We are ever grateful for the support of family, friends, staff (past and present) and patrons who have made it a success. We will continue to conduct business as usual through the 25th, with lots of great music and great food! We strongly encourage people to use up gift certificates! Again, our heartfelt THANK YOU to all and God Bless! Lynne, Claire, Brita & Andrea
