LIGHTHOUSE PIZZA  “Fast, Friendly Service!”

When owner Rich Hammons opened on Tybrisa back in 2007, he set out to create a whole new venue.  Although previous tenants had operated several restaurants on the premises, including a pizza parlor, the last occupant had not paid much attention to appearance of building, so the first order of business was to redo the facilities.  A series of improvements over three years has resulted in the cool, beach-themed dining room, covered Beer Garden patio and a kitchen equipped to handle the very busiest days on Tybee.

Lighthouse focuses on two priorities: first, to make the best pizza (and calzones), using what Hammons describes as authentic “Tybee Dough,” made fresh in the store daily, and offering the largest selection of quality toppings, including more than 30 cheeses, sauces and toppings; and second, to stock the best selection of beer – more than 160 offerings, including craft, imports and domestics, as well as wine and malt beverages (coolers). Of course, fast and friendly service just comes with the territory according to Hammons!

The menu includes baby back ribs, smoked in the store, pulled pork BBQ, chicken wings, sandwiches and salads, and Hammons continually updates it with new offerings…  Recently he added signature pizzas and calzones, including meatball (both), chicken alfredo pizza and philly cheesesteak calzone.  Also the establishment offers fresh made,in-house apple crisp pizza, blueberry cheesecake calzone and cinnamon sticks for desserts.

Another update – additionally for summer, Lighthouse Pizza has started serving breakfast from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.  Some of their breakfast sandwiches include fresh baked biscuits, croissants and burritos, filled with egg and cheese, with options for bacon, sausage or ham. They also offer biscuits and gravy, French toast, and fresh fruit bowls, and an assortment of delicious coffees and teas. Soon, Hammons plans to bring in a new line of Italian pastas and pizzas, which will be concocted with the finest ingredients imported from Italy.

If you’re looking for a great meal in a relaxingly cool, and inviting spot near the beach this summer, Lighthouse Pizza should be at the your list. Groups also welcome. They offer dine-in, take-out, as well as free delivery anywhere on Tybee.

Great eats, folks!!!!
