Just ate at the Lion for my sons hockey team party. The food was great, the service was great. Absolutely no complaints about this place. The waitress had no problems serving our large group of 20 + adults and 15 teenagers. If you like great...More

Stopped by for lunch and a drink with a very good friend. The broccoli cheddar soup fresh and tasty. I also had the Cobb salad. It came with a slightly over cooked chicken breast. The salad and ingredients were all fresh and very good.

this is place is not amazing to look at but it has wonderful food, great staff, and very reasonably priced. I suggest to go, enjoy and don't expect fine dining.

Great specials with generous portions at a good price. Check the specials board as the chef likes to get creative.

The food was great. I had the shepherds pie and it was delicious. I'm not sure if Brittney was the only server there but we ended up waiting for a long time. Plus she forgot to ask if I wanted salad dressing. Must say that...More

We stopped for lunch - two family couples and a baby and did quite well. Food was hot and fairly prompt. Nice salads, burgers, beer, etc. etc.

This food at this restaurant isn't bad but it does not stand out as above average either. There are so many other better pub options within a 5 minute drive, so I likely won't go back.
