When in town for work I et at the Lions Den. Often times on a trip to the area it has been the only place that I eat at. Most time I travel on my own and sit at the bar. The food is very good, the prices are quite reasonable, the beer is ice cold and the bartenders are... More

My wife and I have been coming here for years. From romantic dates to grab a quick bite and head out. The food has always been great especially the seafood and staff are friendly! This place is a must try!

The advertised Alibi Pizza that they have is ok but the dough is not like the Alibi Restaurant. The dough is different so are the breadsticks. But still good food.

We have eaten at the Lion's Den many, many times. I always try something different, though I will go back to my favorites on occasion. Perch (great!), Mike Ditka Pork Chops (outstanding!), Fish and Chips (very good), Reuben sandwich (hits the spot!), etc. Can't get a bad meal and service is great!

The food was fantastic but the takeout service was really slow. The place is jammed all the time at night around and after dinner time.

I eat at the "Den" 2 to 3 times a month. GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT DRINKS. Be prepared to wait on Friday and Saturday night(a sign of a good restaurant) but it will be worth it.

Lions Den can always be counted on for good meals and friendly attentive service. Steaks are prepared just like I want them. MMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Staff is friendly. Great for Waterford, an area not known for restaurants . . . .

Went last night for dinner with our daughter. Menu was diverse and the wait staff were excellent. I had the veal Marsala and my wife had the beef tornadoes- both well prepared, served hot and tasty. Our daughter had their signature bacon Mac and cheese, again well done. Hadn't been before, but we will return.
