Have been going to the Lion's Den for Thanksgiving for a few years and it never disappoints. They have the seating down to an art and we are never left waiting. Service is always very good, as is the food. Price is very reasonable for what is served. Will book again for next year!

Very good food and service. Weekends can be a little crowded. Good selection. Popular spot with an older crowd. Family friend.

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 menu. More fresh ingredients would be wonderful! We... 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

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
