The celebrated harbor-front restaurant serves guests in its replica lighthouse dining room, an outdoor and upstairs patio, and through a walk-up window for beach visitors. Lighthouse Bayview Café servers will use a combination of handheld tablets and traditional point-of-sale terminals to manage orders and payments while increasing kitchen efficiencies. NorthStar’s intuitive and easy-to-use workflow system made training and implementation quick and efficient for Lighthouse staff.
