The outdoor area is great for lounging

[...] Their food menu and selection is unmatched and left everyone full and satisfied between food and desserts. The outdoor area is great for lounging and eating with a beautiful view. The decorations for both events were themed and thoughtful. We will be back for many future events!

I highly recommend!

I had my daughters first birthday at Light on the Bay and it was truly amazing! We were able to utilize the large space for over 60 people and the natural light from all the windows made it feel so warm and inviting. They also did an excellent job on the food, I highly recommend!
