Family owned for 20 years, the Golden Lion Cafe is everything a tiki bar is about and much more. The view of the ocean with the Flagler Pier in the distance from the top deck alone is worth the trip up from Daytona. But the Golden Lion is much more than just a pretty view.
The staff is fantastic, Mark, the TikiTender eats, sleeps, and breathes tiki, the food is to die for (biggest and best fish sandwich in town!) and the atmosphere draws both local and tourist alike. They have a great selection of import beers and there is almost always a live band playing. There is a huge upper deck with with a tiki bar and plenty of tables with an amazing ocean view. Take a peek at their live webcam here to see what’s going on right now.
I love the indoor/outdoor feel of the bar and I have found the outside portion of the bar perfect for watching the bikes go by during Biketoberfest. The newly added free standing tiki9 bar and expanded upper deck has only added to the cool and casual atmosphere of this place.
Whenever I have an out of town guest that wants to get the “Florida Experience” this is where I bring them and it has never let anyone down. Golden Lion Cafe is the most awarded restaurant in the area, winning 115 “Best Around Awards” I consider this place a must visit place!!
