Went on sunday, the music, specifically the bass, was so loud. We went with 10- 20&30 year olds and could barely communicate with each other. The food was good but they were our of a lot of things.

New menu, check it out. Fantastic view. Great drinks (as usual). My wife and I just love to watch the children dancing on the (sand) dance floor to the great Reggae music. Or you could just enjoy the 'Beach' in your lounge chairs next to the Tiki Bar.

My family and I have been coming to The Golden Lion for 10 years. Our visit this week was just as good as always. We tried a special item called the "seafood tower." It was a combination of delicious and fresh oysters, clams, and shrimp, topped with a lobster stuffed with ceviche. We over looked the ocean and sipped margarita's.... More

Beautiful location along the beach. Food was great. Local and been here several times. Never been disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere, view. Not fancy. Beach side. Great for 'refreshing beverages with a beachside breeze!

average food. Too expensive for the amount of food. Paying for the view not the food. Good for tourists.

I will not go to this place again. A waiter reported that they fire waitresses if they get pregnant. They did not deny this in the newpaper. They said it is too strenuous for them. At a time when they really need the job they get fired! I was a nurse when I was pregnant - also stressful and strenuous,... More

We had dinner here because the place we wanted to go to had run out of propane. Ordered a dozen raw oysters and I have had far fresher oysters from a fish market in the Midwest that sat in my fridge for 6 days before I shucked them. The Thai fish tacos and swordfish were good. The service was absolutely... More

I am very sorry that you were less than satisfied with your dining experience here at the Golden Lion Café.

We are entering into our peak season here at the Golden Lion and are training several new staff members, which can at times appear chaotic... More
