Zeus News
December 22, 2011 

According to the "experts", today is the first day of winter.   It is days like today that we are thankful for being in Flagler Beach.  Blue skies and 80 degree forecasted highs.    Try some Apalachicola oysters freshly shucked & served on the half or Fresh Florida shrimp with a view of the Atlantic where they were brought in!   

This is a great time of year for many reasons.    A time of celebration and family.  We are thankful for our "family" of customers and staff that made this a great year!   We had a great time last weekend as we celebrated Christmas with our staff Christmas party!   Continue the celebration with us at the Golden Lion Customer Christmas Party on Friday and on New Year's Eve next week!

$200 Wedding On The Beach?

A beach wedding AND reception for $200? You can do it, only steps from the ocean in Flagler Beach.  The package includes a wedding license, an officiant,  a bucket of beer or champagne and local seafood.

What's the catch?  “The only catch is … from the sea,” says owner Tony Marlow.
