Allmusic4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Steve Huey awarded the album 4 stars and stated "Some of Grant Green's hottest moments as a jazz-funk bandleader came on his live records of the era, which were filled with extended, smoking grooves and gritty ensemble interplay. Live at the Lighthouse makes a fine companion piece to the excellent Alive!, though there are some subtle differences which give the album its own distinct flavor".[2]
