We had four friends who do not live in our Kings Gate gated community and everything was wonderful and they were very impressed. Prime Rib was excellent, good service and excellent drinks, friendly staff.

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.

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...More
