Good food. Great view.

I have been to this beach restaurant twice. Both times enjoyed the food & the amazing view from their roof top where you can see for miles up & down A1A along the Atlantic Ocean. They are known for their fish & chips and the fish/shrimp tacos are delicious. There is a gift shop in the back which... read more

We headed up to the Golden Lion for an early dinner and a couple drinks.Heard the fish was pretty good, so the expectation level was up for the visit to Flagler Beach. I ordered the Giant Fish Sandwich and my buddy ordered the fish basket. After about a fifteen minute wait with cold beer and margaritas to go along with... More

We sat at the tiki bar, which is pretty awesome, and enjoyed the live reggae music. The bartenders, David and Patrick were great. The drinks went down smooth and tasted pretty darn well. Both bartenders loved working there (who wouldn't) and it shows. We had a dozen oysters and enjoyed them so much, we ordered a second dozen! Then came... More

Looking for a fun casual place to eat with great food...you found it! The Golden Lion has not only a fun atmosphere but also great food and great service. Fun for a group of adults or a family looking to grab a meal. Their menu also covers everything from fish loving people to simple and all American foods too. Fun... More

We have been here twice now and I can't say I would go for the third strike. I will say the entertainment was good and service was fine. I just haven't found a meal that I like. The soup was good.

This was by far the worst dinning experience I've ever had. We had family coming into town to visit local schools in the area. Being that every restaurant was slammed, we decided to come to the Golden Lion Café. My family got us a table before the rest of us arrived. Our server took about 10 min. to greet us... More

nice spot, lots of seating, inside and out. Think the food was somewhat overpriced and drinks also. Had nice area for kids, in case the adults wanted to linger over a drink after dinner. Would go back -

The oysters and the cook at the raw bar was the best! The homemade tarter sauce was impressive as well. The hostess was working hard while the manager was rude and interrupting her from helping customers. Our waitress took our check and we finally had to chase her down to get our change. Stick to the bar and oysters if... More
