Waiter was not helpful and energy was dry. I was disappointed in the Mac & cheese, and the tacos should consist of three and not Two. Standard number of tacos provided at most restaurants is 3.

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your evening at Thirsty Dice. I thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. In regards to the tacos, we recognize that a lot of our customers, including your reservation that night, are couples. Most of our menu is designed to share, we feel two tacos work well for our guests currently. That being said, we will absolutely take the feedback you have provided and grow from it. Please ask for Dylan next time, he'll be happy to help!

Website and when seated stated $5 library fee per person IF check out a game to play. Surprise...even if you do not check out a game still charged the per person library fee. We discovered after our credit cards were already run. We were told this was a recent change in policy, the charge could not be cancelled and rerun, and we were not given a receipt for the refund we supposedly will receive on our credit cards. We were told if we don't receive the refund, we should call and ask to speak with the manager. Food was mediocre. First drink was great. Second drink (same order) was mostly ice.

2 friends and I went for a drink and snacks after walking around the penetentiary museum. I'm glad it had been recommended to me. I observed everyone taking care to sanitize. Jake was our server and gave attentive service and great recommendations for drinks (definitely checkout the Crossfire cocktail). We shared nachos, short rib french dip, tots, and fried pickles. Everything tasted fresh and had a lot of flavor. I will definitely be returning with friends for a fun game night out! The game selection seems endless

I wish they were still doing outdoor dining. I would be more comfortable sitting outside.

Sarah, thank you for take the time to review. We will be re-establishing outdoor dining this month! We had a hard time providing a great guest experience matching the volatility in weather with our games and heating towers. We hope that you join us again soon, outdoors or indoors, and when you do, ask for Dylan. He'll be able to provide our "Thank You" discount.
