Being that we are not football fans, we enthusiastically seized the opportunity on Super Bowl Sunday to escape the usual crowds and enjoy our favorite brunch at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse - a buffet feast of epic proportions that includes unlimited Champagne, an other-wordly raw bar and unrivaled views of the Big Bay...for only $42! This was probably our seventh time at Tom Ham’s Sunday Brunch (who's counting?), which means that we have a planned course of action and a good idea of how to maximize enjoyment. So here it is, our guide to approaching the Super Sunday Brunch at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse.
Whenever we’re asked for Sunday brunch recommendations, we, without hesitation, suggest - nay, declare - Tom Ham’s Lighthouse on Harbor Island the best option. Be sure to make reservations, as the bayside eatery usually fills up quickly - and rightfully so. They offer everything one would want from brunch - a custom made omelet and pasta station, a raw bar filled with fresh goodies from the sea, all the staple brunch items (with everything from breakfast to salads to lunch and dessert), bottomless Champagne with an array of fresh juices, and unparalleled views in a modern, upscale setting with amazing service.

Plate number three is either a concoction similar to plate #2, or in our recent experience, a salad plate to get some roughage into our bellies. We loaded up on local greens, quinoa and pasta salads and some roasted veggies from the antipasto platter. A plate like this will make you feel better about yourself, but we understand saving that precious belly room for all of the other delicious options.
I usually finish the buffet with an eggy creation from the build-your-own omelet station. Being especially hungry, I also revisited the prime rib station and had another slice added to my plate for a steak and egg finale. After the fourth plate, it becomes difficult to move or even speak...and with that we venture into the wonderful world of the food coma.
