A Waterford Tradition

Well-rounded menu expertly prepared including imaginative specials. Very attentive staff always eager to please a crowd of 10 or a couple having a quiet dinner alone.

Enjoyed dining at the Lion's Den. Great service, extensive menu, reasonably priced along with attentive, friendly service and personable clientele. Highly recommended and for football fans, lots of great memorabilia (sp?). Food and drinks pretty good too!

Disappointing. Ordered a Greek salad and it was served with spicy Greek dressing and was not the fresh crisp salad I had hoped for.

Diverse menu has something for everyone. Good pizza. Always seem to be large groups when we go there. Sandwiches are very good as well.

When my husband and I visit family in Waterford, we enjoy getting together here for lunch. The menu has a lot of selections and our group has never been disappointed with our meals. The waitstaff is courteous and efficient ....complimentary popcorn provided on your table while you are waiting....nice touch.

We had a group of 15 for a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, they accommodated us on time, the staff was very nice, and the food was very good. Lines were going out the door, so if you have a large group make arrangements ahead of time, as they do not make reservations.

We used to go here many years ago ad akways had a great meal. Then for some reason, the food and menu changed and it no longer was good for ud. Gave it a try lately and found it to be improved. The perch is a sure bet.

I have been going to the Lions Den for more than thirty years and I can always count on it to provide good food and service.
