Stopped by tonight while in Lake City and was totally disappointed. I thought this would be a fun place for gay people, boy was I wrong. Service was awful and the atmosphere not entertaining at all. I do not see this place lasting long.

For it to be the ONLY gay friendly place in Lake City, It is a magnificent place! They have drag shows on the weekends, associates who try their hardest to reduce drama to the fullest so others can have a fun time. It is also a great place to go and perform. I have been coming to the Lion's Den since july 31st, 2011 and it has grown so much. Yes it is not as good as Ft Lauderdale or Gainesville but it is just starting out.

This is a great place. True we have very limited pool in lake city but the people here are like family and the Den is like a second home. All of the regulars there love each other and would do anything to help any one there. There is a lot of transition going on right now but to give it a bad review is ridiculous. The gay community in lake city is proud to have a place as great as the lions den.

Exactly! It is 100% better than having to waste gas by going atleast an hour out of town just to have fun and chill.

For all of you people that just stopped by and were SO Dissapointed, the fact is that your not in Gainesville or Jax. I have been to Gainesville and jacksonville gay bars with absolutely nothing going on, so for you to give The Lions Den such a review just let me inform you!!!! We love the Den, its gay friendly, family, everyone is loved and excepted. A place to hang out and have s great time. Staff is most friendly, shows are amazing, evidently when you walked in you already had major issues. That sounds like a personal problem to me! Im proud of all of the performers and the staff. All the people are amazing. We are all family in the gay world, so just give it a break, and take a deep breath, and enjoy life!!!!!!!!!!

Is it true it is now closed? I just went on Facebook and it said that it would be closed until the future of the establishment could be determined. Not far from Alachua and High Springs. Didn't get a chance to visit and was planning on going.
Close Already

Man, this place absolutely sucks! Since the reopen I have been to a few of the supposed drag shows. The queens are talentless, the staff is WAY understaffed, and to go there just for lunch is stupid! They close at 2PM. Plus I am paying alot of money for a ham sandwich. A friend of mine told me they get the same meat from Winn Dixie! Really? It looks like the place is about ready to join Marion St. Cafe soon...mmmmm sorely dissapointed.

As nice of a gesture as that sounds I do belive I will have to pass on that. You see im over protective when it comes to my rear and I have witnessed that dog you walk at the very end of its leash as if in fear of a rather hard ass rapping.

The lions den is great place the original owners are back in charge after dwight and wayne had it for two months and about ran it into the ground.....the drag shows on saturday are just as good as gainsville the cast has had some changes and are a very talented.group of performers... why don't you people stop talking about things you don't know and give them a chance the gay people in lake city should be proud to have it available you who else had balls to bring you your first gay bar not to mention sponsering the first gay pride celebration in this town. You should unite and help them succeed without them you have no place waste your gas and drive somewhere else because the bar is just what you make it theres only as much drama as you bring........think about it you all have been given second chances in life give them a chance

Jim is right. Dwight and Wayne almost destroyed The Lions Den. It took a community to build this place, but two people, Dwight and Wayne, almost destroyed it.
