Have visited this establishment many time for many years. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. I especially love their escargot and veal marsala.

Good all around menu. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Even the ribs are pretty respectable as is the perch.

No matter what you're hungry for, it's very likely Lion's Den will have it on their menu. The atmosphere is amazing and the service has always been top notch. Prices are affordable and the food is always very good. I highly recommend if you're in the area.

Our family enjoys going to Lions Den about once a month. Unfortunately, they no longer take reservations so if you arrive at peak dinner time, you could have a wait. Free popcorn is great, good food selection but most food is just okay. We love the atmosphere with lots of TV's showing sporting events and sporting memorabilia.

Had dinner here with family. Seated right away. Brought popcorn and bread to start. Service was excellent and food was equal. Priced well. Pizza was some of the best. Would definitely return when in Michigan.
