Great ocean view lunch at the Golden Lion Cafe. Fish tacos and snapper 'fish of the day' plate were wonderful! We sat on the upper desk to enjoy the oceanfront view!

We have recently moved to Flagler Beach and was quite pleased to find that the Golden Lion had a raw bar so I was anxious to try it out. The day I was there they had three different types of oysters and some local clams. Tried a dozen of the clams and 1/2 dozen of each of the oysters. All... More

Recently had an event where there were 34 friends attending, the quality of service was excellent. The two servers that worked our event were professional and friendly. The food was very good, the drinks well made. Highly recommend this very picturesque restaurant.

Stopped in with husband for lunch today. I ordered a banger sandwich, and he ordered a sampler which had fish fingers, shrimp, and wings. I was very disappointed in my sandwich. The sausage was really mild, and barely heated through. It was served on a cold ciabata roll, which had enough mayonnaise for a 2 or 3 sandwiches (and I... More

Thank you for writing a review about your recent experience. I do remember your group from Sunday and I apologize again for the Three's Company. The Banger Sandwich is made with a milder Sage Sausage and served with Coleman's Mustard on the side. We did miss our par with your group and I am sorry about that but I truly... More

The Golden Lion has the best coconut shrimp I've every had!! I would highly recommend it and next time, I'll eat it as a meal instead of just an appetizer! Divine! They have great lemonade too!

Good food and drinks. It sometimes takes a while to get served because there is often a wait to get seated. But the atmosphere can't be beat. Have a drink while you are waiting to be seated. You are right across from the ocean and it is time to chill. There are good food choices. Lots of seafood of course,... More

I always enjoy eating at the Golden Lion. They have entertainment on most nights. It can get very busy at the normal eating times so come early. They do offer a small variety so if you do not want seafood, you can choose something else. I enjoy the raw bar that is now being offered. The fish and chips are... More

This was our #3 choice of restaurants we tried in our 6 nights in Flagler. A wide variety of food choices which was appreciated by my wife who does not eat seafood (they do have seafood, though). Our service was fast and efficient. Inside and outside tables. Very reasonable prices.
