The Golden Lamb rolls out special menus throughout the year and the Lenten season is no exception.

Fridays during Lent they offer a special menu for customers who are committed to eating vegetarian or seafood. Across the country, that number is significant. A survey by Lifeway Research found 24 percent of consumers observe Lent, and in a study by The NPD Group, fish and seafood were consumed 5 percent more often during Lent than other times of the year. If you are fish fried out (is that even possible?), the iconic Golden Lamb restaurant in Lebanon offers a special menu that’s worth the drive. The menu is served during Lent starting at 11:30 a.m.
