My wife and I checked various restaurant reviews to find one with a variety of Salad choices. I had the Pecan Salad based on a review, it was very good, it comes with a tremendous honey mustard dressing - without that it would not have been the same.

One night we were remarking on how all the years we've been eating at the Lions Den how consistent and great the food, staff is always delightful etc. So, that evening, I had an Alfredo chicken pasta dish and was sick for 3 days. OMG I was so shocked... guess it's back to Pecan Chicken Salad..!

As decades long fans of the Alibi in Troy, we learned of Lion's Den recently. With a similar menu, fantastic pizza, and a great list of solid entrees, the family business seems to have a successful place in Waterford. We will be back. Fairly often now that we live in Waterford.

We love the Alibi pizza, the restaurant is always crowded. Their bar and main dining areas are very cozy.

The food is good, the pizza is excellent, and the service is quick. Always a wait at the door, but it is usually a pretty short one.
