Really enjoyed our girls night
Really enjoyed our girls night out. Beer selection was great. The service and cooking staff accomidated our splitting our plates. They were even so nice as to give us each our own sides and not even up charge us. I thought that was going over and beyond. Very customer friendly place.

New to the area and have never been to Tempe Market Place, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The Thirsty Lion was nestled just at the corner of it all, so great access....... The Patio was great and had a view overlooking the shops and activities...... Inside was very busy, since it was a Friday and HH..... But still were seated very quickly. The menu had a little of everything on it and prices were good. The staff was attentive (even though busy). We took our time, not rushed, and we had drinks and then ordered apps. The food was very good..... We never made it to the actual dinner part of the menu due to the fact that the apps filled us up! We enjoyed people watching and the big screen TV's.

Booked reservation on-line
Booked reservation on-line and mentioned to hostess and she acknowledged. However later received email saying the restaurant reported us as 'no show'...not cool. We ate there and spent money and they said we were a no show. they need to get their act together.

Outstanding experience. The staff is friendly and accomodating. On vacation and the best service we received in the Phoenix area over the past 2 weeks. Food quality, fresh, hot and great flavors!
The manager was walking around talking to customers which you just don't see very often these days.

We got seated right away, but it was a little loud inside and knew it might bother my parents. My fiancé went to ask if we could be moved outside and his request was quickly accommodated, even though there was a wait! The food was great as always. It ds t take unusually long to get drinks from the bar though and that was a little annoying. All in all we love this place!

We have been to Thirsty Lion
We have been to Thirsty Lion many times and am always amazed at how consistent they are. The service is always impecable and efficient. They are all so friendly!
The food is great, always exactly the way I order it!
We saw several large groups and they can easily be accomodated.
52 beers on tap, great sports viewing, food and service, what else is there?
Oh, cute waitresses!

If you are looking for a menu
If you are looking for a menu that has english-type fare, this is the place to go. Scotch Eggs were very good. I saw others around us enjoying the fish and chips. I had the turkey club and it was quite good - not the typical club sandwich. Corned Beef reuben was also very good. Very nice beer selection - some local brews and some native to England.

We sat at the bar and had great service with all the bartenders. The menu has an average (albeit large) selection but the food itself is surprisingly tasty. I had the chipotle mac and cheese and really enjoyed it! My friend ordered the cherry bread pudding and was raving over it. My favorite part? They had Summer Shandy on tap!

I have been here with work associates and my entire large family. Both times the food and service was awesome. The sat time I was here was with 7 family members ranging in ages from 4 to 75 and not one complaint about the food!

Great food, good beer list
We've been going to the thirsty lion since it opened. The food is all good-beer cheese soup, ahi tuna, burgers, pizza, etc. Not the cheapest spot but very good for foodies.

First time and really loved it!
The food was awesome, lots of choices! 5 of us had 5 different things and everything was excellent. We really liked how the wait staff worked as a team. Even though we only had one designated server, there were a lot of other servers coming to our table in a very organized fashion. We had 2 servers offer to take our drinks, and everyone was super friendly and the timing was great.
Only food item that we didn't care for was the calamari. They were rubbery.

Their Happy Hour is Awesome!
Their Happy Hour is Awesome! Great drink specials and the appetizers are enough to fill you up! Pulled pork sliders, pub chip nacho's and potato cakes are at the top of our list! Both food and drinks are always delicious.

First time at Thirsty Lion
Table for four at 7:45PM. We decided to check out Thirsty Lion after seeing the chef on a segment of Sonoran Living. The beer selection was great. We tried the soft pretzel appetizer and thought the dip was so so. The beer cheese soup was excellent and we would recommend that they use the soup as the dip for the pretzel. We had burgers and ribs for dinner. The french fries were fresh cut and cooked perfectly.
Cons: The music was so loud we had to yell at each other across the table. We probably would have stayed and had another drink after dinner - but we couldn't hear one another so we decided to split after dinner. Our waitress also acted like a snob.
Maybe we till try an earlier reservation next time.

We went on a Tuesday night as a family dinner night selection - all adults - Guinness on tap was the deciding factor to go (Dad's favorite).
Service was great - the food was too. We sat in the dining area - a little loud for the older folks, but not overly to the point we couldnt have a conversation.
Mom ordered onion rings for the table - yum! Three of us had burgers which were outstanding (Tavern Burger was recommended by server and was wonderful!), mom & dad shared the steak tips and still had leftovers.
Overall great experience and we most definately will come again!

It was a wonderful dining experience and the food was wonderful except for the tri-tips my husband ordered. The song was too salty and the volume of sauce was too great.

Good date night
The atmosphere was low key allowing us time to chit chat. Wait staff was amazing, prompt, and friendly! Loved the big screens with music videos, some of which stretched all the way back to the 80's!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here on a date, was not disappointed. Food was awesome and moderately priced. Every employee from the hostess to server to waitress was friendly. Great value, tastes more expensive than it is. Will be coming back 5/5.

Our server Rebecca was fantastic! She keep our party flowing and she was right on top of the food and drinks that everyone had ordered! She did a great job for our group celebrating my friend Lorrie's 50th birthday! Thank you!

great place to meet up with
great place to meet up with friends and feel comfortable to visit for a while after finishing with the lunch. could have used a bit more attention to checking back on drinks though

Thirsty Lion is #1!
I have been to this restaurant several times and over the weekend we decided to take some out of town friends. Knowing that this place is busy, we made reservations. Good thing we did. The place was packed and on a wait. We sat on the patio and had the best service in years. They even had a glass giveaway with Guiness and our out of state friend was super happy he received one. The food was awesome. How do they continue to provide such a great experience every single time we go there?
Fabulous staff, friendly and accommodating.
Thank you for doing a great job, every time! (we have made another reservation for this weekend)

A new favorite place
Staff was very nice and well educated on their menu. A nice place for a casual dinner or a romantic date. Decor is unique. I visit this place often.

Great patio dining
Group of eight had a wonderful time dining on the patio. Vinny was a fantastic waiter!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is one of our go to places. We always have great food and service when we come to The Lion, that is our nickname. We also love that we can depend on the games, football, basketball, etc. on the TV's, and you can see them from were ever you seat inside the restaurant.

The old Board of Directors
The old Board of Directors was reuniting for lunch so we had a lot to catch up on. The wait staff was right there when we needed them but gave us lots of time for reminiscing. Very pleasant staff, very efficient, thoughtful, and anticipated our every need. It made our reunion perfect!
