Great hangout

The fish and shrimp lunch was great! Definately recommend the key lime Tartar sauce! The cocktail sauce was yummy too. Great dance area and live music if you are looking for something to do at night.

Mondays are such fun at Golden Lion Cafe. There is live music, several food specials for only $7.99 and Happy Hour 3-6, along with Margarita special. We shared the Sharons Nacho's and their Chicken Quesedilia. Too much for two people! Our server was so great. It started raining so we had to come down stairs. She let us pick where... More

Watching the whales, tarpon and surfers while eating fish and chips on the roof is the true meaning of "Going coastal". Golden lion offers a raw bar, tiki bar and adreondik seating to great the visitor. The fish and chips is the biggest, beautiful, white fish available on the east coast.

I have been to the Lion quite a bit in the last two years, while looking for a home in the area. The food is pretty good, my favorite of the month being the Salmon Club, which is really a salmon BLT with cucumbers on it on a toasted rye bread. Awesome enough to eat for days at a time.... More

Very casual - right across the street from the beach. From the deck you could see and hear the water. Plastic chairs, open bar and sand dance floor. I sure people come right off the beach. We had the homemade salsa, shrimp and the seafood chowder - all execllent. My husband ended with the Key Lime pie also excellent. IT... More

This place made my dropped off my radar this past Saturday evening. My wife and I went for seafood on Valentines Day. We arrived at 5:45 pm and checked in at the front desk. There were two little old ladies in front of us and the hostess said she would be right back and escorted the ladies back into the... More

Crowded tables and strange looking out of thick plastic windows but it did help on a windy day. Very busy and waitress got drink and food order wrong, but blamed us. She " thought we said" yada yada and did not even say sorry. Maybe she should write it down instead of trying to remember everyone's order. The food and... More
