We had friends in from Atlanta last Saturday who wanted oysters. After checking around I decided on Golden Lion! What a pleasant surprise for our first time visit. Our friends had the oysters for an appetizer and just raved about them. We all had margaritas which were excellent and for dinner we shared regular blackened fish tacos, Thai fish tacos... More

We're locals and this is one of our favs! Upper deck, has great view of beach and lower deck has a Tiki bar, live music, undercover seating area and beachy area where you can relax with a drink or sit while you wait on a table. I always order the fish tacos with the fish of the day. They use... More

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
