I want to set up a common group file share with files only being visible to those who have access within OS X Server Lion.  What would be the best method to do so?

    Set up file sharing through the lion server admin app
    Set up the users and groups you want
    Create a file share in the location you want the shared files
    Add the group you want to allow access, to the permissions on the file share
    Manage this from the admin app on or for lion server.

    What I'm having trouble with is providing a group folder that everyone has access to, but only specific users can access folders contained therein.

    So set up the share with access allowed for the group, then set up your sub-folders with appropriate ownership and access on a per user basis.
