Whether you’re looking for an elegant evening affair, a distraction-free training session or you want to make use of the grounds for a casual outdoor barbecue, you’ll find us easy to work with and ready to deliver your perfect event.

Four indoor rooms with spacious windows provide wonderful views; a picturesque 8-acre campus and convenient parking make Lighthouse Knoxville a gem in West Knoxville. Outdoor spaces and two large decks accommodate weddings and events, enhanced by the 3-acre lake and relaxed, peaceful atmosphere encompassing the venue. Adjacent to an attractive horse barn and fields, we are located just off Deane Hill Drive and Bearden Hill, less than 30 minutes from McGhee Tyson Airport and convenient to area interstates and accommodations.

For Unforgettable Events

Beginning its life in 1977 as The Hungry Fisherman restaurant, Lighthouse Knoxville has since been repurposed twice. After the restaurant closed, it served for a time as the corporate headquarters for a mental health facility. It was then reopened in 2012 as an event center.

Since 2018, the event rooms have been completely refurbished. The warm luster of original hardwood floors and rich character of vaulted-ceiling beams have been beautifully restored, and the interior and lighthouse have been freshly painted. Contemporary media have been added to meet your AV needs for every occasion.

Whether you’re hosting an indoor or outdoor wedding, an intimate dinner, a business training meeting, or a birthday or anniversary gathering of any size, we have the perfect space, perfectly appointed, for your unforgettable party, meeting, or event. We offer the full package with our well-designed facility, flexible menu possibilities, detailed service, beautiful grounds, and convenient parking. You and your guests will be delighted with every event you host at Lighthouse Knoxville.
