Although the drinks were a little overpriced, the overall experience was nice. My wife and I got leftovers to last us for a week! Good seafood and nice specials. We will be back for sure. Kelly, took great care of us and was very attentive. This place knows what they're doing ya'll..

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!
