Really big place with lots of different areas for lots of different tastes including a raw bar in one corner. Entertainment is a regular feature with plenty of room for sand-dancing. The food is just a part of the draw for this long-time Flagler favorite. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service adequate and efficient. Love the oyster appetizer!

This place was recommended by family (locals), and they were right. It was the best seafood we had on our Florida vacation! It looks a little dive-ish because it's mostly open air wooden tables with umbrellas, but the food is actually pretty sophisticated. We shared a fish and chips entree (again, recommended by family) and it was wonderful, but my... More

What a location on a sunny warm day in mid September. I had the fresh fish of the day over a ceasar salad. Tasted great. The view from the upper ocean view deck was tremendous. I would come again.

So happy you enjoyed your Fresh Catch Grouper and our Famous Fish n' Chips. Our Key Lime Tartar Sauce is for sale in both Flagler and Volusia County Grocery Stores with a portion of the profits going straight back into local communities through our partnership with the food pantry. We look forward to seeing you back again soon! More

The food was good, but 15 bucks for some hand sized tacos and a side of chips? Give me a break, I'm not made of money! I expect more from such high priced dishes.

Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that you feel the tacos were overpriced but they are Fresh Catch Tacos, which means the fish was caught and brought in the same day you ate it. We try to provide the freshest, never frozen, seafood in Flagler Beach and unfortunately that does influence the price. We hope you... More

The golden lion is on the beach. It has a sand floor a tikki bar roof top setting overlooking the ocean. It is not fancy but a true classic beach bar. Great Pina colada's

Anybody for fried fish! This place needs to shake up the menu and add a few new and healthy choices. Time to think out of the box a little. Salads are boring mostly lettuce and overpriced. Of course you can add 4 small shrimp , steak or chicken for another $ 8.00. SAY WHAT! Nice view of the ocean from... More

I stopped in here when another restaurant pointed me in this direction after I asked where to find some good seafood. This isn't your traditional local seafood restaurant, this seems to cater more to the tourists. There are no seafood platters or combination plates. There is a raw bar, but prices are about double what you would pay at an... More

This was my first visit to Flager Beach and I wanted a fish sandwich at the beach. The place was packed on the service was good. My fish was huge and it came with great fries. The key lime pie was to die for. I will be back on my next visit.
