The Lion's Den had a huge menu with tons of options for both food and drinks. They also had an excellent kids menu. The place was clean and newer looking. We were all very happy with the excellent service as well as food. I had the gluten free pizza and loved it!

We're not talking fancy here folks, just good, steady, sort of roadhouse style food (they even have frog legs!), with competent, reliably good service. Simple enough for an ordinary night out and good enough for a date night. You... More

Like its namesake, the Detroit Lions, its fans are very loyal. The Lion's Den has been a fixture in Waterford Township for decades and the food and service keep its fans coming back. Four generations of our family have enjoyed their food and the atmosphere. Whether someone is looking for a sports-themed establishment or a family restaurant, The Lion's Den... More

If you like local style type restaurants I must recommend the Lion's Den. Locally owned, not chained or corporation owner's Mike and Beth take this experience to a whole new level. This by far is my favorite #1 restaurant in Waterford. If you haven't tried it, you have to put on your list to do so. American Cuisine serving from... More

Probably our favorite casual restaurant. Huge menu with lots of variety, daily specials and food is consistently very good. Best onion soup ever! Owners, managers, wait staff all very friendly with very little turnover, sort of a Cheers atmosphere.

Long time neighborhood restaurant that does everything right. Food is casual & very good, extensive menu w/specials, great drinks & affordable. 5* because what they do, they do well! Not gourmet or fancy, but you will be well fed & satisfied when you're done. Can't ask for more than that.

Extensive menu, food is very good, the prime rib is available on Friday to Sunday's. Pizza is excellent, as is the bread sticks. Reservations suggested if going on the weekends.
