The atmosphere was quiet, and the room was outfitted with comfortable booth. The Lion's den was very nice and perfect for a just after lunch gathering, the food we had was excellent, and our server did a splendid job of keeping us in popcorn, water and some well poured drinks. My Half Pound Burger was outstanding. I would like to... More

Our service was slow but the place was very busy. They aren't slow with the drinks though! I wonder if there's something behind that? We like the free popcorn while waiting! Food is good to excelent. 6+ times we have been there for dinner

Great variety to choose from their menu. You shouldn't have any trouble finding what you like. I've had several menu items and they've all been great.

This is one of our "special occasion" restaurants when we we want to spend a little more for a treat. (Not crazy expensive, but more than your average diner.) Entrees are good, specials are good, sandwiches are good, bread sticks are great. Reliable quality and service.
