The name is terrible lol. We visited family and if they didn't take us here we wouldn't have stopped in because of the name. The name seems like an old buffet Chinese type place. But I must say the place is pretty awesome. I like the downstairs bar, music (stage) and hang out area. We sat upstairs on the deck.... More

Thank you for your review. The name, The Golden Lion Cafe, is actually derived from the British history of the English style Pub. Our owner's father owned a Golden Lion Cafe in England years ago and there are many British pubs with the name Golden Lion, Red Lion, White Lion, ect. We are very glad that you enjoyed the food...

Fresh catch fish taco topped with coconut shrimp was light and delicious! Mussels in white wine sauce with feta cheese sprinkled about was equally impressive. Margs were only $3.50. I can see why this place has been voted a top restaurant for several years running

This place has great fish. My husband loved the fish and chips and I loved his french fries (I don't usually eat fried food so it has to be outstanding for me to eat a fry) My tacos had great fish. I'm not sure why they put leafy lettuce on the top. I prefer cabbage, but iceberg is ok. But... More

We visited on an uncrowded Monday night. My husband had the beer-battered fish sandwich and I chose the Thai Fish Tacos. And he ordered a crock of New England Clam Chowder as appetizer. The chowder was delicious -- very authentic! The fish was so huge, the sandwich was served open faced and he never even attempted to eat the bread... More

Sit on the top deck and enjoy the waves, beware it is very windy up there! We always stop for their fish fingers, they are long, beer battered white fish with Golden Lion's signature sauce (which you can now buy at Publix FYI). Great with a beer and the view. Service is always fast and friendly :)
