My friend and I stopped in for some seafood. Swordfish was the fresh catch and it was delicious. I'm not a red potato fan, but these were diced and baked and were great. Good "seaside" music and a great waitress. It's a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

Food wasn't as good. 3 of 4 of us were pretty unimpressed with the food here. service was o.k. but we didn't feel our server was well trained. We sat outdoors on the rooftop with a nice view of the water.

The drinks we had were well made and the Appetizers were great. We will definitely revisit The Golden Lion on our next visit to Flagler.

Although the sandy beach floor and live entertainment make this a perfect beach bar, the service and food were just adequate. Several tables were open but we were told we could not sit there because they didn't want to stress the server. Inside the restaurant an open table stayed open and we were not allowed to sit near the window... More

My family and I always visit The Golden Lion Cafe when we are near Flagler. We are a large group (6-10) and are always seated and served right away. The menu has a wide variety of dishes and a very good children's menu. The fish tacos are my favorite thing on the menu! Be sure to walk just across the... More

Day or night it's a perfect place to park your sandles and cozy on up to a plate full of fresh clams, oysters and more. From the Seafood tower to the fish sandwich you will not be disappointed. Options for those who dont' care for seafood are available. Oh yes and be sure to hang around to Limbo on sundays... More

We were a group of 14, and we greatly appreciated that they would accept a reservation for 14. Other restaurants in the area do not. The first problem was that the server didn't know what wines were sold out. My wife had to order white wine three times. "Oh, they don't tell me what they are out of", but they... More
