Family Traditions Lighthouse's $18.95 seafood buffet includes flounder stuffed with crabmeat, steamed scallops, steamed mussels and steamed shrimp.




Summer means seafood to many people.

At Family Traditions Lighthouse restaurant in Chambersburg, Pa., the seafood buffet is a year-round Friday night tradition.

Owners Tony and Melissa Sherman brought the seafood buffet feature back when they bought the family restaurant two years ago. They also brought back menus, for those not interested in the daily buffets.

The $18.95 seafood buffet includes flounder stuffed with crabmeat, steamed scallops, steamed mussels and steamed shrimp.

Most customers choose the buffet, which typically includes roasted chicken, sliced roast beef, glazed ham and roasted turkey, Tony Sherman says.

The restaurant offers traditional, home-cooked American fare.

Once a month, the restaurant has a gospel concert. The 2006-07 concert season kicks off Saturday, Aug. 5, with local gospel singer Randy Simpson. Dinner concert tickets range from $25 to $30.

As its name implies, the restaurant has a working lighthouse, though it's not near a body of water, Sherman says.
