Passed by it a thousand times. Felt like a burger Saturday night so finally gave it a try. Old-fashioned Country/Western bar. Been there over 40 years. A little "run-down," but that's part of the charm. I had the wineburger with cheese and an order of fries. Both were very good. The burger was $7 and the fries $4, so one... More

The Lions Den is a nice mellow bar with nice people, good service and Good food. The cook knows what he is doing! A rustic little bar in a mountain setting. Live music on the weekends.

We have been going to the Lions Den since the early 80's. We have always had a 2nd home in Pinetop and whether we were fly fishing and playing golf on weekend get-aways from the heat or snow skiing in the winter we stop for the famous Wine Burger and a few beer with great local atmosphere.

This is a great bar. We met for drinks during our Christmas vacation with family it has great choices on tap beer it has dancing live music and it may have craft beers I don't know but that's what my kids drink. LOL

The best thing about this place is its diversity. You can always go and meet new friends and they are often visitors from Tucson and Phoenix. People who are there to dance, drink and socialize always appear to be enjoying themselves. The best time to go is Friday night during the summer and hope you hit it for a Scottsdale... More

Lions den is a happening as much as a restaurant. There are games going on the television in the bar; there are toss games being played on the large enclosed patio; there is live music on weekends; there is a great selection of bottled and draft beers (not the kind of place to quietly sip expensive wine); and there are...

Good place to go for a good time or to watch sports. Bands Fri & Sat night. Old historic bar. Not great for wine, but everything else. Always packed when we drove by!

Ate there on Sunday night. Wine burger was superb. The rest was pretty bad, unfortunately. Two of us had fish and chips which were over-battered and extremely overcooked. Not expecting this, we had also ordered onion rings to share so by the time we left, all three of us were sick of oil. Add all this to the lack of... More

Sorry your experience was not to our standards, please allow us the opportunity to make this right, as for politics... we are a sports bar and have found that broadcasting the debates at our place has not always turned out the best.. Sorry More
