One of my favorites on the lakefront! Its a cozy restaurant with a great view of the lake! My husband always gets the roast duck when we come here, but I get the fish and chips. I really like the fries.

Food is very good and fairly priced. Small family owned restaurant. The crab cakes are wonderful. Lounge side is a lot of fun

Looking forward to another meal on New Year's Eve. This is the fourth year we done this and with an early reservation, we get the best seating and a quiet crowd. My wife enjoys the duck while I order a filet or roast prime rib....More

The Lyons Den is right on Lake Winnipesaukee overlooking a marina. The view is great and the atmosphere is warm in traditional New England setting. The service was OK, recognizing we were there mid-week, off season, in October with a reduced staff. The fish was...More

First, thank you very much for your kind words. I am guessing that your visit was earlier in September. Our very big, beautiful window was replaced on 9/26. Unfortunately earlier this summer it lost it's seal which created a very cloudy look. We were also...More
