A New Chapter

Hi everyone, and a very happy and safe New Year. We have very mixed emotions as we announce that December 31st, 2021 will be our last day of business.

We have decided to retire and start a new chapter in our lives.

The Den will be in good hands with a new local owner/operator team and we can't wait to see what they have in store for us!

We want to thank all of you for spending some of your day and evening hours with us over the past 16 years. Truly, what we will miss most are you - our patrons and friends.

Take care and stay well. Lauren, Roland, Nikki and our entire staff.

P.S. PAID FOR gift cards will be reimbursed (This does not include any gift cards that have been donated.)

Look for additional information here and on our Facebook page.

Lauren can be reached at

We are following the governor’s guidelines regarding COVID restrictions.

We are taking all the steps necessary to keep you safe and well.

Nikki Lyons Lahey, 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.

Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire

Nikki also works for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire.  She is fulltime as the Director of Community Outreach and enjoys working directly with the Wish children, amazing volunteers and the incredibly supportive donors. Make-A-Wish® New Hampshire grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  The New Hampshire chapter depends on their volunteers and if you are ever interested in getting involved, making a donation or learning more about Make-A-Wish – please let us know or contact our daughter, Nikki at – she would love to share wish stories with you.

In 2019, Lyons Den Restaurant patrons decided to help support Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, and on their own they decided to create a “Rafting for Wishes” team.  they called themselves Lyons’ pride and were able to raise more than $11,000.  Because of this support, our Den family granted a wish for a boy from Gilford, NH.
