Pleasant surprise on Queen East

Noting the new sign on the old Lion on the Beach restaurant, we looked in the open door. What a change! The place is bright and airy, with higher ceilings and all new everything. The old Lion was dark and I don’t think they could ever get the cigarette and stale beer smell out of the carpeting. The new Stone Lion looks inviting, so we stayed for beer, burger and coffee.


The burger was good and the patio (which was the only place we’d sit before) is still in use if you want to sit outside and people-watch. Service was good and servers pleasant. May you live long and prosper, Stone Lion!
