The location for a party of 10 was perfect and taking a reservation means I chose here rather than others. The food, service and ambience was perfect to catch up with old friends.

The hand-breaded chicken tenders are such a wonderful change of pace from the pre-fab frozen things served by many other restaurants. Queso is so delicious, too! The servers here also seem to be consistently and genuinely friendly. We really appreciate that!

We were disappointed to see there were no bacon wrapped dates on the menu. One of our favorites we had at another locations.

Originally tried to seat us on a back tall
Boy table right next to a big screen tv....during March madness. Seemed indignant that I asked to be seated in one of the many open booths. Service was below expected, they even served my second martini with no olives. Really, where is that OK? Overall disappointing from previous wonderful experiences. It was busy but not slammed and there appeared to be plenty of staff.

The service and wait staff was exceptional and especially Carly. They seemed to know what was needed and when. They left us alone when need be and then came around when needed. The food was outstanding.

While the service, drinks and food were great, it’s a very loud restaurant. Maybe booths offer more peace, but from the people to the music, I found myself nearly yelling across the table on a Thursday night. Lesson learned next time I take my marketing team out. Nonetheless, worth going to casually because the menu is amazing!

We had a great family meal! I loved the lamb burger- it was absolutely delicious, served on brioche, perfect thickness- seriously, I could go on and on about how yummy this sandwich was! My husband enjoyed the orange chicken and my two girls enjoyed their meals. My only complaint would be - I do wish kids drinks were not $3 a pop. Otherwise, great service and a enjoyable night out!

My server, Nicole, was adorable and lovely and made me feel very welcome. I was dining by myself but I wasn't dining alone!
I had the poke and it was delicious. A little bit spicy for me, but delicious.

We visited Thirsty Lion for a date on a Friday evening. The restaurant was full and was buzzing. Our waitress was very attentive and helped us choose both drinks and entrees. Unfortunately the food was just average but we had a good evening anyway.
