Default Lyons Den Sold

word on the street. Hopefully they can screw with the layout, but not the menu or quality of product. Fingers crossed . . .

Heard the same. Purchased by the individual that owns the Ellacoya.

Extremely sad to see Roland and Lauren moving on, but they have been doing this for a long time and deserve a happy retirement. My wife and I shall miss them and thank them for the many wonderful dinners we had at Lyons Den.
Wishing you well going forward.

We have enjoyed a lot of meals there.

Is it too soon to ask what night will be $5 burger night?

Default Special

It was always a special day for us if we could run up to the Lyons Den from Rattlesnake for steak tips. I am glad we had the opportunity and with them the very best in their well-earned retirement.

I really enjoyed the food and ambiance when I ate there; I wonder whether the new owners will tinker with the formula or keep it the same?

While I have enjoyed Ellacoya the Lyon's Den is by design a different dining experience.

Default Getting the facts right

In an effort to get the facts right --

First and foremost at this point in time (11/29) there is ONLY a P&S executed for the sale of the Den and no closing date has been established.

All should be aware that there are "contingencies" that have to be addressed, therefore, no guarantee of the sales completion (yet).

Post #2 in this thread is incorrect !! The potential buyer is more of an investor and will hire an experienced Operational Team to oversee the Den if/when the sale is completed.

The Lyons Den is and will be fully operational through the Holiday Season so don't let extraneous rumors deter you from setting holiday plans. We have already booked our New Year's Eve's reservation !!

If wondering, I have NO affiliation with the Lyons Den other than as a Patron & supporter who was there at the onset some 16 years ago and wish both Lauren & Roland the very best as they attempt to turn another chapter in their lives.
A bad day on the Big Lake (although I've never had one) - Still beats a day at the office!!
