“Best fish and chips hands down!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

This is one of my favorite places to visit every time we come to the area. I ALWAYS get the fish and chips which comes in a huge portion, but so perfectly cooked every single time. Always fresh and yummy! I don't even eat much seafood, but I can't help myself here! Everyone else has been complimentary to their food as well including the steaks, so it seems across the board they are great. Usually have someone playing live music (and always quality performers) and an enjoyable beachy atmosphere. Can't go wrong!

“My how this restaurant has grown!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Golden Lion was a small spot 15 years ago, and it's grown! That indicates good management, good food and good service. My husband and I had a fried shrimp meal and good cold beer. The outdoor seating is directly across from the ocean and we had fun with our cheerful server.

“Famous Fish and Chips!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

It wasn't my first time here, but everytime it's just as good...consistently fabulous! Crispy, but not heavy, breading...fresh, flaky, moist and thick fish in the inside...Delish!!!! I'm not much on tartar sauce but have to say that their keylime tartar sauce is the Bomb! Couldn't quit putting some on my forkfuls...and they sell it there (It's also available now in Publix!) Our server, Chris, was a great salesman on all of their products, as he was knowledgeable, friendly and very efficient! For a special lunch or dinner, The Golden Lion Cafe remains consistently awesome!! Thank you!

“Best fish tacos”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We have been to The Golden Lion a few times and think their fresh catch of the day tacos are the best! Not only is this place super fun, friendly, relaxed and cool; it is also top of the list for delicious food. Attentive service. Great music. Sand dance floor. Fabulous food. Try the fish and shrimp dip...YUM! and the blue cheese potatoes...WOW! the best fresh salsa I've had in a long long time! Very cold beer, awesome bar, great view of the ocean. Come as you are and plan to stay a while; this place deserves a slow approach, time to take in the fun! Love it!
