They offer a small gluten free menu with gf pasta that is very good!! Also good pizza but the standard crust, but excellent toppings. No gf beer but angry orchard.

We prefer the restaurant side rather than bar. We were just there and they have a Maurice salad on the menu. We like their pizza, Popcorn starts off the meal. They often seem short on table waiters. They seem to have multiple tables per waitress.

My kids take my husband every year for Father's Day to Lion's Den. Great service, good food, and amazing pizza. One reason, is the popcorn. YES popcorn. Free popcorn at your table as you wait. Who doesn't love popcorn?

Six people, six different choices from an extensive menu. The frog legs, smelt, and sauteed perch would all be ordered again, but not the pastas​. Clam chowder is very good.

Free popcorn brought to you. Great waitresses who are accommodating. Great atmosphere. TVs to watch sports. There is a wide variety on the menu and I haven't tried everything. But what I've had has been very good. We've had the Salmon several times if not...More
