Don't let the look of this place fool you. It's not just a bar with mediocre food. It has great food and the staff is very friendly. In particular the Fish and Chips is very good. The portion is gargantuan, however, so consider sharing it with a friend!

Golden Lion is right on A1A and has all the old Florida style you look for. The food is GREAT! Try the Fish and Chips. They are out of this world. Destiny was so friendly and helpful. The drinks are great as is the staff. The band playing is awesome and adds to the atmosphere.

After walking the beach, this was a great stop for oysters and beer. The service was good and prices fair. Outdoor seating and a great beach surrounding.

Cannot beat $12 for a dozen oysters during happy hour, but don't bother with the lobster cocktail. I was expecting chunks of lobster, not something that resembled tuna salad. Clam chowder had nice size pieces of clam, but the soup base had too much flour in it. My husband's fish tacos were ok - good size pieces of fish and... More

Great variety of menu offerings at very reasonable prices. My party of 3 enjoyed the fresh catch of the day; Tile fish with coconut shrimp served in a soft taco shell with chips on the side. The steam mussels and key lime pie were also part of our luncheon gathering. The Key lime pie is made on premise and was... More
