I have been to Golden Lion several times over the last 15 years and although the food has always been better then average, but the service has been going downhill steadily. On our last visit, two weeks ago, we were asked if a specific table would be acceptable, only to watch it be cleared and given to guests arriving after us. When asked why this happened no answer was given. On other occasions servers have gone missing for over 20 min., or after paying the bill, we had to ask a different server for our change. Most likely won't return, too many better options in Flagler Beach.
Drove by on A1A and stopped at this place. Very welcoming people with good drink and food. Excellent service by Ashley and Erica. I lover the shrimps with the coconut dressing (served separately) with fries and my wife the chicken salad. When in the area we will be back.
I went there Sunday with 8 other friends, I been there once before. We were seated on the top deck with the amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. We all got our food pretty quick (we beat the church rush), everyone enjoyed their food. I was digging in on my burger, it was great till I found a brown hair attached to the bacon. Needless to say I was done eating. They did remove the price of the burger from my ticket, Thank You. You can't beat the atmosphere and the staff is always very nice. Whether you want to sit with your toes in the sand, at the bar or a table...I think you will be quite happy you came.
Nice Atmosphere....less than average food, and even lesser than average service. The number one past time in Flagler Beach is drinking... a Lot Of Drinking ..so the quality of food and service don't really matter, so long as they bring you your beer. Not the place for eating. Awful service.
We are "snowbirds" and always look forward to eating at this restaurant. We took guests there recently and enjoyed the food and atmosphere as always but were disappointed in some of our favorite things missing from the menu. Most missed by my husband was the appetizer which consisted of 3 shrimp, 3 chicken wings and 3 pieces of fish. I enjoyed their always good New England clam chowder. The service was great as always too.
Went to dinner there last evening for the first time with my husband and our friends who have been there previously. Our server Candace was very friendly and did a great job, although the kitchen had a lot to be desired. My husband ordered a very simple plain hamburger medium when it came to the table, it looked like it had been sitting there for a while was all dried out and very well done almost burnt. His fries that came with it or cold and soggy. Our friends ordered calamari and octopus fried that came to the table cold we told our server but our friends were hungry so they ate it anyway. Our friend ordered fish with mashed potatoes for mashed potatoes looked old and they were cold also and we had to complain about that as well. The manager Chris, came to the table apologized and said he would take care of it. At the end of our meal our server Candace per the manager Chris, offered us one piece of Keylime pie to split for the four of us for our inconvenience. I found that to be not only really cheap, but a slap in the fat face and very insulting since my husband had to wait and eat by himself since we were all done with our meals. When I voiced my concern and upset about this our server went back to the manager, and he said that he would give us 10% off. I still find that to be an insult! What he should've done, as a good manager, was to have taken my husband's burger and fries off of the check as well but that didn't happen. I will never return with my husband to this restaurant ever again. I don't think that the manager did the right thing at all!
While on vacation last week in Florida we visited The Golden Lion for a quick lunch and were very impressed. So, that Friday night, when we were kid-free, we decided to go back and make a night of it. GLAD WE DID! This place has awesome seafood, a great atmosphere, and a wonderful staff! Our server, Laura, was amazing! We had such a good time conversing with her all night. I recommend this place to anyone who likes a good time and loves seafood! We WILL be back!!!
I had the steamed shrimp and oh my it was so delicious. My husband had the fish and chips and we were shocked at the serving size, it was huge and also very fresh and tasty. My daughter got the kids fish and chips and again the portions were huge.
Very friendly staff and the atmosphere is awesome. It was so nice to sit at the top and eat dinner over looking the ocean. Prices are decent and I highly recommend.
We drove from Edgewater to eat here. Love this place. However, I do miss their Threes Company appetizer. We like to get a couple dozen oysters during happy hour and the Threes Company was just right to finish our snacking. Please bring it back!
