    We loved sitting up top with the great views but service was slow and the food could have been better. Drinks were good. We thought it was pricey for the quality of the food, but we did enjoy our time here.

    Gross food, couldn't finish it. Took it home and threw it away. Long Johns has better fish and chips.

    10 years ago, the Golden Lion was a good place, perhaps a great place. But over those 10 years the prices have increased dramatically. Okay I can understand that, but then shouldn't the quality of the food be at least the same? Went there for lunch on a Thursday. Had the fish and chips which were normally wonderful, but they were bland and it was this huge fried dough is all I can think of to describe it.

    Sorry, but we found much better fish and chips for a much better price. Just a few miles away. And I'm so sorry to report this, but it is what it is.

    Our server was awesome and the Coconut Shrimps and Thai fish Tacos were superb! Pegged a great table on top and the views couldn't be beaten. Great lively beachy atmosphere.

    Fun place to eat and drink! Food was pretty good and loved the drinks. Liked the fish sandwich. Service at the bar was good but a little hard to get their attention.

    Hubs and me had an awesome time here today. The weather was gorgeous and the views perfect. We enjoyed our food and drinks. Their raw bar is tops. Service was sluggish though which may be due to the holiday weekend crowd.

    Highlight of visit: The raw bar is fresh.

    We're visiting this wonderful area from the UK and were told we had to try the fish and chips at the Golden Lion. Although we didn't travel all this way to eat fish and chips, we thought we'd give it a go as the weather was terrific, and it looked like a good spot to dine al fresco. The latter was very true, the setting is very enjoyable and the views are tremendous. The service needed some improvement with attentiveness and the timing from the kitchen was off. As for the fish and chips, to us they tasted more like a frozen dinner type than what we are used to back home, but our daughter very much enjoyed her tacos. The cocktails were quite good, although no unique creations were offered, and I just received a blank stare when I requested a drink off the menu. I feel the Golden Lion is a fun place to eat and if the setting was removed, it would not be so popular.

    Delicious lunch of nachos appetizer and fish and chips. The cocktails were great but just a bit too sweet for me. Atmosphere is hard to match in Flagler Beach and the staff were very friendly.

    Highlight of visit: The Golden Lion still has the best Fish and Chips in Flagler Beach.

    We sat at the tiki bar and ordered drinks and food and it was beautiful, at least for 5 minutes. Then people around us started smoking and put us off the place and no way can I eat food around that disgusting smell. Can't stand restaurants that allow smoking around food and drinks. It's 2023 for crying out loud! I thought the Golden Lion had more class.

    Good music and awesome setup and location. Service was slow but the food was worth the wait. Love the drinks! Fish and Chips worth coming here for. Plenty of seating options but upstairs looks the best.

    Highlight of visit: Their Fish and Chips live up to their reputation.

    We go here often as we like the views and drinks and always get great service. I really like the raw bar and my wife likes the shrimp and chips. Always a good time there.

    Went on the Monday NY holiday and it was very busy and very foggy, so could hardly see the ocean from the upper deck. Service seemed stretched as did the kitchen. Drinks came out quickly and tasted on the weak side and food was slow. Fish & Chips were OK but not as good as previous times. Wife's tacos were kind of 'wet' but she liked how they tasted. The experience was kind of fun but it's a much better restaurant on more 'normal' days.

    We had a girls' night here and had a great time. Service was awesome and made sure we had full glasses. The food has that "island" taste which we love and you just can't find a better setting in Flagler. Thanks to all concerned for bringing us this amazing place.

    I come here often and love sitting out enjoying its vibes, but I really wish they opened earlier on Sundays and served brunch. We have some good Sunday brunch options in Flagler Beach but the choices are limited and The Lion I think would be ideal. Love their wings here and the fish sandwich is awesome.

    Just love the Lion! Varied menu even though I usually end up with the fish and chips, and I can never get enough of their mixed drinks which go down too well on a hot Saturday afternoon. Staff friendly and lively and of course the views and setting are amazing.

    This is a great laid back with a nice beach atmosphere and I like that even when it's busy everyone seems well spaced and it doesn't feel crowded. The food is very good and I often get their fish and chips which are the best, and I also really like their fish tacos and burgers. The staff are all friendly but service from the kitchen can be slow at times. I do like sitting at the tiki bar but it's not always open when I go.

    I always stop by here when I'm in the area for Fish & Chips and a beachy cocktail. Not been let down by the food yet and you can't beat the vibes they have here. No better place to chill after a long day.

    A fun bar with beachy vibes and plenty of seating options such as views from the top deck to sandy tiki bars. I personally try to sit at the tiki bar as I get better service and a faster drink turnaround. Their Fish & Chips are always great and they also do some very good fish sandwiches that hit the spot. Best place on Flagler Beach for me.

    All the employees were friendly and good and we loved the beachy atmosphere and vibes. The Coconut Shrimp app and Fish & Chips were both awesome but my girlfriend was really disappointed that they didn't have any vegetarian options except a plain salad which she had. They also make some good tiki drinks and they have a great key lime pie.

    BF and I had a very good time here and loved the views, food, and drinks. The Seafood Tower is worth the visit alone and the cocktails are habit forming lol Just need more servers.
