Good food and drinks. It sometimes takes a while to get served because there is often a wait to get seated. But the atmosphere can't be beat. Have a drink while you are waiting to be seated. You are right across from the ocean and it is time to chill. There are good food choices. Lots of seafood of course,... More

I always enjoy eating at the Golden Lion. They have entertainment on most nights. It can get very busy at the normal eating times so come early. They do offer a small variety so if you do not want seafood, you can choose something else. I enjoy the raw bar that is now being offered. The fish and chips are... More

This was our #3 choice of restaurants we tried in our 6 nights in Flagler. A wide variety of food choices which was appreciated by my wife who does not eat seafood (they do have seafood, though). Our service was fast and efficient. Inside and outside tables. Very reasonable prices.

There is nothing better than watching the Atlantic with a meal. We found the food to be the usual bar fare. Our server was slow, the burger way too rare and it took awhile to get ice to keep the drinks cold. It was OK to overlook these things and enjoy the view. Then a group of young men were... More

My son and I drove up A1A one day, and decided to stop for lunch along the way. Have never heard of this place, but loved it! It had rained, so we were a little skeptical about eating outside. The rain stopped, and they had put up "plastic walls to keep out wind and rain for those of us that... More

Really big place with lots of different areas for lots of different tastes including a raw bar in one corner. Entertainment is a regular feature with plenty of room for sand-dancing. The food is just a part of the draw for this long-time Flagler favorite. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service adequate and efficient. Love the oyster appetizer!

This place was recommended by family (locals), and they were right. It was the best seafood we had on our Florida vacation! It looks a little dive-ish because it's mostly open air wooden tables with umbrellas, but the food is actually pretty sophisticated. We shared a fish and chips entree (again, recommended by family) and it was wonderful, but my... More

What a location on a sunny warm day in mid September. I had the fresh fish of the day over a ceasar salad. Tasted great. The view from the upper ocean view deck was tremendous. I would come again.

So happy you enjoyed your Fresh Catch Grouper and our Famous Fish n' Chips. Our Key Lime Tartar Sauce is for sale in both Flagler and Volusia County Grocery Stores with a portion of the profits going straight back into local communities through our partnership with the food pantry. We look forward to seeing you back again soon! More
