I won't even go anymore. The last few times I have been here we had terrible service, warm drinks, and mediocre food. So disappointed, we use to love this place. Only good thing is the atmosphere....and that just isn't enough for me.

Many rate this as the best all around restaurant in Flagler Beach. Hard to argue. If you are really hungry, order the fish & chips. It is enough for one man and a skinny woman.

Thank you for your review Tom. I love your comment about the Fish n Chips! Yes, it's definitely big enough to share and tastes delicious with our housemade Key Lime Tartar sauce. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Have a great day. More

The Golden Lion is great for drinks and listening to music. The food was actually less than average. My shrimp taco's had 3 small shrimp a piece in them. My husbands Philly Cheesesteak was OK, but not the best. The wahoo was horrible according to my friend but they did take it off the bill. The key lime pie was... More

If we're around Flagler Beach on a Sunday, we always come to The Golden Lion. You can kick your shoes off in the sand and listen to Reggae while sipping on a frozen concoction. Life is good! Their food is pretty delicious, as well. The staff can be a little stuffy, but after a few drinks, who cares. Author TL... More

Hi there, thank you for this wonderful review. We are thrilled you stumbled upon us and enjoyed every aspect of your dining experience. The Golden Lion does offer a great beach vibe and what could be better than sitting outside across from the beach and listening to live music eating lobster! Thanks for stopping in. More

Good food, friendly staff. Live music ranges from soft rock to reggae to folk to country to everything in between. Both indoor and outdoor seating, right across the street from the beach.
