Upon moving to FL, it was difficult to find RAW clams believe it or not and the Golden Lion delivered!! They have the gamet of seafood including shrimp and lobster! Happy Hour Specials will keep you drinking at the outdoor Tiki Bar with friendly bartenders and patrons. I would go again!!

The Golden Lion has the coolest atmosphere around. The food is great, the service is amazing, and the drink specials alone are worth going for. Live bands, nice lighting, and beach sand covers part of the inside of the restaurant! My favorite place in Flagler.

St. Patrick's Day, Spring Break, Bike Week... What could possibly go wrong? Having been a restrauteur and working in the service industry all my life, I am very aware of certain Cardinal Sins. One is to not be prepared for business. Another is that if you run out of an item such as New England Clam Chowder, just inform the... More

We had lunch here yesterday. It was very busy because of bike week. We sat on the deck upstairs, the view of the beach is great. Service was fast, and pleasant. We had the lunch special, a patty melt. It was very good, and the fries were even better. This is our new favorite place in Flagler Beach.

So the waitress started this off just wrong! I ordered the bucket golden lion rum punch and she brought me a regular drink. My husband ordered a Jim beam and coke, he received a coke!!! And she made excuses for it! Fixing the problem would have been better which she did not. 😟 Terribly disappointed. What shall the food bring?... More

They have good food and a fun atmosphere, you can sit and see the ocean or sit in the sandy area and listen to music. My peeve is I live here and most places have a dog friendly patio area, they don't. They could easily have the area near the street behind the bar available out of the way.

Five of us came here for lunch. Most of us had the fried fish and fries. It was amazing. We each received large portions of fresh, thick fish. Beautifully prepared. You can actually order a smaller portion of this same fish item but we didn't know. We also had the rum punch drink and really enjoyed that. It was a... More

We love this place and always seem to pop in when our favorite bartender, Robin, is working. We sit at the bar always get great service and friendly conversation. The food is awesome, I think we have tried just about everything on the menu. Try the fish sandwich!
