Food isn't bad but it's made to kook fancy with a huge price tag. Not a bad place but there are definitely better places to get food and drinks at a much better price.

Our family decided to eat here the first evening in Flagler Beach, probably because we remembered the tall patio and outdoor bar seating. We were not disappointed. We spent a long day at the beach and pool, so I felt bad for our waitress walking about and down the stairs for beer after beer, but she did it with a... More

I live in Palm Coast and this is one of my favorite places to eat. It's ocean front, great beach atmosphere and the food is awesome! I highly recommend the Fish & Chips!

Appears like the Lion is in another cycle of mediocracy. Crock of chowder, thin and no flavor at all. Fries were cold and they brought out hot ones, which were great. Shrimp were good. Service was adequate. Please bring back the great food.

Upper deck is wonderful for casual food and drinks. Food is plentiful and moderately priced. Music on many days. Fun place.

I'm not sure how this establishment has received such high ratings. Or perhaps we just visited on a "bad night." We'll try them again sometime in the future, just be sure. Despite a perfect weather evening on a weekend, the Golden Lion did not seem busy at all, which further exacerbates the subpar service. Why should I have to request... More

It was date night! We decided to try a new place with outside seating and music by the ocean. The atmosphere saved the Golden Lion from being the second worst restaurant I've eaten at in the 12 years I've lived here. We had the calamari which was overcooked and tough. Then we had their new special, the Paella. Every time... More
