From small groups to those over 200, Lion Hills can accommodate all event needs. Additional renovations and improvements are in the works and additional amenities are added constantly. There is no room rental fee for groups that meet on a regular basis at least once a month. Lion Hills offers a wonderful and extensive menu to choose from for all meetings and events- everything from appetizers to fine dining. Lion Hills does not serve alcohol. All rented events are BYOB.”
