New Restaurant Added to The Lighthouse Family!

We are thrilled to announce that our friends at our sister restaurant, Yucatan Beach Stand, have opened their second location, Yucatan Waterfront.

Located in Matlacha, Florida, approximately 30 miles away from our resort, the new restaurant maintains all the charm you know and love from the original restaurant on Old San Carlos and makes for the perfect day trip to our quaint and quirky neighbor to the north.

At Yucatan Waterfront, take a bite out of paradise while enjoying tasty regional flavors and gathering in casual comfort along one of Southwest Florida’s most scenic waterways.

The new bar and grill will be serving up a menu chock full of island-inspired favorites including fresh seafood, burgers, sandwiches, ribs, and more. The full bar offers longtime favorites like the Yucatan Famous Mojito, icy cold frozen concoctions and nearly 10 specialty cocktails.

Yucatan Waterfront features indoor and outdoor seating with expansive views of Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve from a waterside patio. Carryout is also available.

Like the Fort Myers Beach location, Yucatan Waterfront hosts live music regularly and even offers boat rentals.
