They recently renovated a portion of the place. Nice setup. They provide popcorn while you wait. Good food selection. Another Waterford staple!

They have everything you can imagine. From great steaks to seafood to pizza to turkey and on and on and on. Waitstaff. Are great many there for a long long time. Owner will come by to say hello. Great drinks. I think this is the best restaurant and bar in this area. Many regulars. And it's upscale with good prices!!!!

The menu has good variety. Our family has been to Lion's Den on several occasions, and we've not been disappointed!

I have heard a lot about this place; interesting ambiance. I loved the football pictures and all the Easter décor. Definitely a local crowd was in attendance on a Monday night. We waited quite a while (20 minutes at least) for our food and it wasn't all that busy. Our server apologized for the long wait. I had the ham... More

I've tried Lion's Den many times over the years and find it to be very inconsistent. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. The last time I tried their "Alibi" pizza, it was under cooked and soggy. I walked away disappointed and haven't ventured back.

We had some old friends join us for dinner at the Lion's Den. We went on a Saturday evening about 6:00 and were seated right away. Service was very good and the food was great. Our friends shared the seafood platter and were very happy with their choice. I had a special that was a blackened Tilapia and it was... More

We had the butterfly shrimp. It was delicious with an interesting sauce. The smoked roast was ok. A little too mcc smoke on the beef. The beans and scalloped potatoes were to die for. There were several groups celebrating birthdays. It seems to be a place where the locals gather. Lots of Detroit Lions memorabilia on the walls.

First time at the Lions Den lots of pictures of Lions football players and other lions people. I had the soup and it was ok and my friend had a steak and it was a little over cook. Best part of the night was the service she did a great job. Very clean and the place looked good. Will I... More

This place is always hit or miss on the food and the service. Atmosphere and location is good. Prices are a little high for what you get.
