Diner Reviews
  • "Great seasonal menu choices. All of the food is fresh and delicious. The stacked enchiladas are fabulous!"

  • "TL fits well in this space...suburbia. Food is generally decent. Service is friendly. Prices are reasonable. Over the years we have visited 10times which says they must be doing something right."

  • "It was wonderful per usual. We sat outside and had a fantastic server and delicious food."

  • "We were there for happy hour and enjoyed the patio dining. My dinner was just okay, while my guests thoroughly enjoyed theirs. They were out of a few items for drinks on the menu, which was disappointing. It was a very warm day and we looked forward to their cocktails. I'd been here before for dinner and was anxious to get back for some of the same. It was okay. Not great."

  • "Great happy hour menu, excellent service and servers can easily split up the bill (1/4 Callifornia Roll,etc.) so that there's no huge math hassle at the end!"

  • "We’ve eaten here many times for lunch and really enjoyed their salads, soups, and sandwiches. This was our first time for dinner. My wife ordered salmon and it, along with the green beans had very little flavor. My order of ribs was very tough and had small soft bones in it. Good lunch spot, but I can't recommend it for dinner."

  • "Went for options outside the traditional pub fare offered. Ceviche scallops tasted like boiled prawns and scallops were a small portion of so - so cooked shellfish on a huge pile of rice. Should have stuck to pub grub."

  • "We really enjoyed having a nice outdoor area to enjoy dinner. The food was excellent and the wonderful selection of beers is always a hit for me!!"

  • "Hello! We arrived at Thirsty Lion in Tigard to find the place totally packed. Lots of people waiting to be seated! So, we were very happy that we had made reservations. We got right in and were sat at a booth as we had requested. Very prompt service from the hostess and wait staff. Food was excellent, calamari was delish and worth the $10. We will be back for sure, and wished there was a Thirsty Lion location at the Clackamas Town Center area. thanks!!"

  • "We were pleasantly surprised when we went in on a weekday evening for a light meal. One of our biggest complaints at restaurants lately is the inattentive staff and slow service. Not at the Thirsty Lion. Water was delivered and drink order taken right away. Server took our order when we were ready and the food came out timely. We will be back. An important factor seemed to be a dining room manager that kept in eyes open. "

  • "The outdoor seating area is wonderful. Attentive and enthusiastic servers - great variety of menu options with something for everyone."

  • "There are tons of great restaurants close in to Portland. But the Beaverton area around highway 217 is lacking. Even the Bridgeport area has limited options of really nice and classy places. Thirsty Lion is a hidden gem. Perfect for many events. Dates, brunch. Groups. Food is excellent. Large sports TVs running , but video only, no audio. More of a social bar/restaurant rather than a sports bar. Varied seating options inside and out. Been there approx 30 times in last 3 years. Every time excellent. !!!!!!"

  • "My overall rating of the lion is very good. The food, service, and ambiance were all very good. The noise level was moderate which reflects the active level of activity in the place"

  • "For the 3rd time in a row we made reservations for dinner and requested a booth. Because we arrived 15 min. before our reservation the host staff informed us that we would be seated closer to our reservation time. The people in the booth they were going to seat us at had already been there 45 min. (same thing we were told on our previous 2 reservations). About 20 minutes PAST our reservation time, we asked the status of the booth. The same host staff told us the people in the booth had only been there 40 minutes so they were going to be a while. What?! They told us 35 minutes earlier they had already been there 45 minutes! So 30 minutes after our reservation we decided to bag it and just take a table. Reservations? Why bother? "

  • "Always had really good food here. Service is usually pretty decent; a couple of really good waiters. Noise level is maddening. Turn down that blasted music. I don't want to raise my voice just so my friends can hear me at the same table. Also, when I order appetizers, give me a chance to eat them before bringing the entrees."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "They had a special on the menu the other day for lunch (my first time to this restaurant) and it could have been the best tasting dish I have had all year. It was very very good. My compliments to the chef."

  • "Have always liked the the place it took a while for the meal to arrive. "
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "The food is pretty good. My feeling is they try to be "fine" dining over pub food. They don't quite hit "fine" but the food is good. Love the selection of beers and wine. The servers have always been really good, checking in frequently and keeping us happy. My one complaint is that they blast the music so loud that you'd think you were in a nightclub. It's so loud you can't hold a conversation. I wish they'd turn it down a bit...."

  • "An increasing popular place; no doubt due to great service, and even better food. Can be extremely busy at time; make reserv for any time. Ask for the "stage" if you want quiet table."

  • "Hubby likes the selection of beers, try the beer flight to sample several. Food was prepared well, service was quick and friendly. They were not too busy on this visit. It can get loud on game nights, lots of TVs to watch the game. Kids liked the mac N cheese (big curly noodles) and the pizza(a little greasy). The Beer Cheese soup is really good!"

  • "We discovered Thirsty Lion soon after it opened and now there are two of them both within 10-15 minutes of our home. Food is better than average pub type. Food. Service is much better. I love the sliders but plenty of other things I have yet to try."

  • "My husband and I visited Thirsty Lion on a date night this past weekend, and we were unfortunately underwhelmed. We had only been there once before (for lunch), and we really enjoyed it that time…great food and great patio setup. This time we sat inside the restaurant, which was very busy on a Friday night, making us very grateful that we were able to make reservations. Our server was great: friendly, fast, and attentive. However, my blood orange margarita was far too sweet and the food (a Kobe beef burger and the pulled pork sandwich) were mediocre, at best. Still a great place to meet up with friends and grab drinks or appetizers, but we wouldn't come here on a date night again."
