This is an award winning beach bar. It's a great place for drinks - right across A1A from the beach. There's a cool bar area, and they offer live entertainment. However, I recommend that you do NOT come for the food. It is average at best.

Right across the street from the beach, this is moderately priced, casual place with excellent food. The food is ably prepared without excess or pretense. It doesn't look anything special as you drive up, but the food - we had all seafood - is worth the trip. The foofy drinks are pretty good too, albeit not especially strong.

We recently took advantage of the Key Lime Tartar Sauce deal and enjoyed our Fish and Chips dinners - loved the rum bucket, as well.

We had a good meal for a reasonable price here. Malissa was our waitress and knew her stuff. Responsive to our needs and expert on the menu. Some good local wine for a special of $12/bottle. Fish tacos with their own special sauce were a great after movie treat. Right on the ocean at Flagler Beach.

Decided to drive from Daytona up to Flagler Beach just to try this restaurant that I'd heard great things about. I was not disappointed. I ate up on the top deck, looking out on the ocean. A Mimosa was one of the days specials and then had the Lobster Roll ... that's their most expensive item and I'm a big... More

Whenever we are in Flagler Beach we make a point of going to the Golden Lion for fish & chips. Fish always tastes fresh and the batter is light and crispy. In warmer weather it is great to sit outside on the upper deck with views of the ocean.

We came here to relax and have dinner on a warm January evening. The service was great. We had chips and guacamole AND dozen oysters for appetizers which were very good. Dinner was roasted asparagus and Mahi Mahi (Tahitian) Tacos.... delicious! The Bloody Marys were very enjoyable too! Good music, nice view, excellent company, great food... great evening!

I've been to the golden lion cafe a few times to meet friends. The food is decent nothing special. They frequently have messed up our orders and service is pretty slow. It's not an awful place. Just nowhere I rush to go to. The view is nice and so is the entertainment.

Met friends for a late lunch. FYI Happy hour starts at 3 PM. The food was okay. I ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, but they charged me for the full meal and I didn't catch it until I was half way home, Oh, Well-Check your receipt! ^ Good size shrimp.
