In the Beginning:
In the beginning .... The Lyons Den Restaurant opened on January 18th, 2006. It was a very snowy first day of business but we weathered the storm and are very happy to still be here today!
From the moment we stepped inside the building - with the amazing view of the Gilford islands, Lake Winnipesaukee and the Ossipee Mountains - we knew that we had to make this place work. Not being on the main road makes us a destination, but we truly hope you will come and give us a try. Come for the view. Stay for the food.
Our family team is here to give you a memorable dining experience.
Lauren Lyons, Owner and Manager:
Lauren will likely greet you on your arrival at the restaurant. Her beautiful smile and charming way will soon have you smiling as well.She always wanted to be her own boss and start a business and the Lyons' Den is her dream come true.
|Roland Lyons, Owner & Executive Chef:
Roland has more than 30 years of culinary experience, serving as chef at the Lake Sunapee Country Club, New London, the Manchester Country Club in Bedford as well as restaurants in Sarasota, Florida. He got his start as a young boy watching and learning from his grandmother. Roland has been the Executive Chef at the Lyons' Den since day one.
|Nikki Lyons, Staff:
The only child of the owners, Nikki gets her smile from her mother and truly hopes that everyone who steps inside the restaurant has a wonderful experience. She hopes that she and the other dining room and bar staff make you feel right at home!
Although the Chicken Nicole is named after her on the menu, she suggests that you try one of her dad's amazing fresh seafood dishes. Her favorite is always changing but the Ahi Tuna is always a great choice. She also suggests that you finish every meal with one of their mouth-watering desserts! Anything involving chocolate is her favorite!
