We came to Lightsey to sample "weird" seafood on their sampler appetizer platter. This includes gator and cooter (turtle). They were out of some things, so we setteled on the gator appetizer. We were surprised at how good gator is!! It's a little chewy, but it tasted like very well seasoned pork. For the main course, we got the grouper wings (cheek area) with the fried shrimp. The grouper wings had bones, but the meat was great. The shrimp had a nice, light batter on them with a very good, crisp flavor. We decided to sit on the patio, but the restaurant had great decor of stuffed fish with some plaques that described record-breaking catches. It's a little out of the way near the boat slips, but this makes for a nice view while on the patio!! Will definately go back when I'm in FL again!

Pros: Good food, great service, nice view outside, great decor inside

Cons: they were out of some things, but it was new year's eve

I'd been to Lightsey's several times when I lived in Okeechobee briefly for 2 years. Great food and perfect location on Kissemee River. Okeechobee doesn't have too many "choice" eating establishments, but I would highly recommend this place. It truly is a "gem" and I'll be going there again soon while visiting some friends!

We have been going to Lightsey's since we moved here five years ago. It doesn't just have your regular seafood but you can get Frog legs and Gator tail. They cook it perfectly and you can't get Catfish any better! The service is always perfect and friendly. There isn't a place to eat with better scenerey. It is the perfect family place to dine in town. The prices are very reasonable.
