This is one of my favorite places to visit every time we come to the area. I ALWAYS get the fish and chips which comes in a huge portion, but so perfectly cooked every single time. Always fresh and yummy! I don't even eat much seafood, but I can't help myself here! Everyone else has been complimentary to their food... More

The Golden Lion was a small spot 15 years ago, and it's grown! That indicates good management, good food and good service. My husband and I had a fried shrimp meal and good cold beer. The outdoor seating is directly across from the ocean and we had fun with our cheerful server.

I'm not much on tartar sauce but have to say that their keylime tartar sauce is the Bomb! Couldn't quit putting some on my forkfuls...and they sell it there (It's also available now in... More

We have been to The Golden Lion a few times and think their fresh catch of the day tacos are the best! Not only is this place super fun, friendly, relaxed and cool; it is also top of the list for delicious food. Attentive service. Great music. Sand dance floor. Fabulous food. Try the fish and shrimp dip...YUM! and the... More

Our family really enjoyed the open air seating, however the food was lacking in the enjoyment department. The service was lacking there of as well.

Ate and drank here a few times whilst holidaying in Flagler. Good varied menu, service depended on who was on shift ...some were better than others. Enjoyed the live music which wasn't overly loud.

I visited the restaurant with my wife and our children twice during our stay in Cinnamon Beach in late July 2014. Both visits were great. We tried fish and chips, fish tacos, and mahi mahi sandwich. The food was very good. The french fries were amazing. The fish was tasty but I agree with other commentators who feel it was... More

I highly recommend the fish and chips. But you really can't go wrong with anything else on the menu. I've been to the Golden Lion 4 times now and enjoy it each time. It's a busy place and the staff is hopping but if you have to wait for service most likely you're dealing with a newbie on the job.... More
