Based on a recommendation from a local shop owner, we dined here during vacation at Hammock Beach. The food was really good. The prices weren't bad. The service was good. The best part of the evening was when the band stopped playing and we could have a conversation. We love our music, but it was really too loud. We'd dine... More

So sorry to have to write a poor review. We went last year and it was deja vu! Different waitress but same thing as last year. We had to get up to find her to bring more tea even after she noticed we needed more! Then someone she new shows up and hadn't seen in a while and it was... More

The location was wonderful- right on the water. Parking wasn't the easiest but we finally found a place. It only took 15 or so to be seated. Our waitress wasn't the best. She would get lost for long periods of time. It took us forever to get our food and we had the famous fish and chips. It was good.... More

It is hard to understand why a beachside restaurant would choose to serve one of their most popular menu items using this mushy, tasteless, cheap fish. The menu offers little except fried items. Service is usually very acceptable but food...... don't waste your $$$$. We have tried it several times but will only go back for drinks in the future.... More

Food was just okay. Service was just average. We did enjoy the view and everyone ate what was ordered. Prices are average. We would go back for drinks and snacks again.

Two of us for late lunch - upstairs of course. Wonderful breezes, nice umbrella for sun protection, and a fabulous Flagler Beach view. We both had the fish and chips, having been here a few times before. Way more than a person can eat but the go- box means a meal for the next day. Rhett was our sever, good... More

We enjoyed a birthday celebration at Golden Lion this past week. The waitress and the atmosphere were great. I ordered the French onion soup, but was very disappointed. There were virtually NO onions and the cheese was scant. This restaurant needs to include some serious vegetarian options.
