Service is excellent. Always seem to get the same competent person looking after us. Food is very good. Love the way they serve their salad in a large bowl left at the table for self service. Good place for a group or date night.

Never in my 69 years have I been treated so rudely. We, a party of three arrived early in the afternoon, about 4... the restaurant apparently is just an extension of the 19 th hole bar. We were not greeted as we entered. I asked one of the two wait staff if this was the restaurant she said nastily ,... More

Been here for their Friday night fish fry. The fish was good along with the sides. Plenty of food, OK atmosphere. I've been here for lunch and it's been good also. Give them a chance they are working on improving your dinning experience.

No matter how many times I've given the Lions Den restaurant a chance, I leave disappointed. The service always seems to be off and the food selection is pretty limited - taste is barely mediocre, at best and is overpriced. Would not recommend...

This used to be good with excellent all u can eat fish fry on Friday. Now, the fish is either cold or not fully cooked. You practically have to jump up and down to get the staff attention to return your Meal or, if it's good, get more. Will not go back again.

We just came back from the Lions' den restaurant with friends of ours. I had the fries shrimp platter. It was just ok. The place is beautiful. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they have Kareokee, it was fun.

The food was cold, the service was slow and on top of it all they charged an 18% gratuity and it was a buffet. This was the second time we tried this place and it will be the last. There are many better places to go in the area with much better food and service.

My spouse went to the buffet dinner on 2-19-2014 and found the whole affair very unsatisfying. I am quite forgiving, but this amateur-hour type production was pretty poor. The buffet was set up entirely wrong, with the plates on one end, followed by DESSERT!! followed by side dishes, then the proteins. The main dishes were Seafood Puttanesca and Beef Bourignon,...

I looked forward to Saturday night Prime Rib at the Lions Den. Imagine my disappointment recently when I ordered the Prime Rib and baked potato and was told they ran out of baked potatoes two days ago and instead I was offered scalloped potatoes. YUCK not a good combination. I also remember there being entertainment and dancing both of which... More
