Okay at best

Friendly staff, cramped dining area. The food wasn't bad but wasn't that good. The bread sticks were tasteless (borrow the recipe from the Highland House, please). The fish and chips were limp, not crispy. They tasted fine but a bit greasy. I think the kitchen needs to get more excited about their... read more

The Lion's Den is a neighborhood and family favorite. The Lion's Den has been around for decades. Clearly, it has survived the test of time! This is the place we go for our birthday dinners, or to meet with friends amidst a casual and enjoyable themed ambiance. The football theme is not overbearing, but simply fun, stemming from the Detroit... More

I have driven by this place 100's of times. But last night, I met an old work buddy here. WOW!!! classic place. Super fresh and clean. Great service, and I really, really liked the vibe. Made me feel welcome and right at home. They had Titos so I was very happy. WE had the appetizer sampler--AWESOME, and I had the... More

The menu is a little boring but the food is good- I've never had anything BAD there. Some good people watching opportunities from the court house crowd at lunch. The atmosphere is fun, gets noisy on game days. The service and prices are average.

Awful service and mediocre food. The servers don't seem to give a crap about anything and they act like you are bothering them. Wouldn't waste my time or money

A very nice casual restaurant with good food and fine service. A great place to take the family because their extensive menu covers burgers, pizza and a variety of entrees. Their specials can be counted on to offer some unique choices. My companion had tortellini with Italian sausage and spinach. The generous portion was delicious. I opted for sautéed whitefish....

Stopped in here for some Monday night football and was amazed at the quality of the food. It's definitely a local joint and everyone was friendly. Someone had crab legs, which they said were better than any they'd had in Florida. I had the backed spaghetti which was more food than I could eat. The portions were huge and the... More
