Great food.

Service was odd

We had reservation for indoor seating but when we got there we were told they didn’t have anything other than outdoor or high tops.

I chose this restaurant over another choice because we didn’t want high top seating.

There were several empty low top seats. When I asked if we could have one of those we were told they were reserved. I pointed out I had reservations too but got no response.

Restaurant was LOUD so loud that I couldn’t hear the people I was sitting with. There was lots of smiling lol

I also was taken aback by how close the tables were to one another. There was a sign saying based on cdc guidelines in May, masks weren’t needed for vaccinated people. And they were passing that along to their employees.

But I’m sure many unvaccinated people were in there. And this was my first restaurant where servers were unmasked and it didn’t sit right with me. Especially since they had to lean in close to hear us. Since it was so loud.

All that said and done. Our food tasted amazing. Great work in the kitchen

I just wish the dining room had some distancing, (a lots changed since may folks) was less loud, and they honored my reservations

One of the worst places for service I've ever been. I waited for 45 mins for a jack Daniels on the rocks. Two waiters came and asked me multiple times what I was having. It's not difficult. Two ingredients that's it. I'll never come back.

Great value as always, food is very good, fresh squeezed margaritas were made fresh without all the sweet n sour, although could have used a tad more tequila for me. Server was good but as with many restaurants now and staff shortages she wasn’t able to be as attentive as the good ole days and I did become parched from running out of margaritas twice. As I said though this is unfortunately becoming more normal now and I don’t blame the server.

The service was friendly, prompt, and courteous from start to finish!

The food was great - at an odd price point for being in a shopping plaza in Euless- i.e. more than one would expect to pay for a restaurant sitting in between an Old Navy and a Forever 21 - but no one left disappointed. We had the crispy chicken sliders and ahi poke plate for appetizers; both were excellent, albeit small-ish in quantity. Our family of six had a variety for dinner:
* Pepperoni and four cheese pizza - My 10 year old said it was great and ate nearly all of it (he's not a big eater, so there's that); crust was thin and nicely toasted - crunchy on the outside and warm and soft within.
* Praised pork ramen - The noodles were WAY down at the bottom of the bowl, but once they were discovered, it was a hit. The pork was tasty and the noodles were done well.
* Ahi poke bowl - While it didn't have as much ahi as expected (about the same amount as the appetizer), it was very tasty and well put together (read: just enough rice and lots of veggies!).
* Pork tacos - Different spices than expected, so not the "street" taco taste we were going for, but good nonetheless. (The black beans on the side were one of two things we weren't thrilled with ... they were meh)
* Pepper bacon cheeseburger - Quite honestly, I am going to assume this tasted good; however, considering my 14-year-old ate it in literally 4 bites, I cannot be sure. ;-)
* Jalapeno pepper jack burger - No complaints on this one, either - tasty and filling, although maybe could use a few more jalapenos?
The folks who had burgers did say the fries were just ok, but considering everything else was well beyond "ok", we will just make a different selections for sides next time!

Service was slow tonight. Our waitress had inside and outside tables. And too many of them. My guess is that they don’t have enough staff. Food was very good.

We love this place and would normally give it 6 stars, but this time we ordered fish tacos and there were literally 2 - 3 tiny nuggets of fish. We told the waitress and she brought us extra fish and made it right.

Always have great food and pleasant atmosphere at the The Thirsty Lion.

The only thing to note is that on this visit OpenTable allowed is to reserve an outside table, however, when we arrived the restaurant said they stopped taking outside reservations for a month and a half and we would have to wait for over 20 minutes at the least. It was explained to me that this was an OpenTable problem that the restaurant had repeatedly asked for the reservation service to fix, but to no avail.

Fortunately, the manager made it right and we still had a terrific, tasty meal with tremendous service.

Hopefully, in the near future, the app will work with the restaurant to better provide accurate information in advance so that the reservation process matches the other high-caliber aspects this restaurant serves up.

Good food and atmosphere. Service was spotty. I suspect it was a case of being short-handed and not inattention on the part of the wait staff.

We had a great pear martini and the jalapeño burger. Both were awesome. It was busy, and our server was MIA for a little bit. But we were in and out of there in an hour. The manager was great in resolving our issue. We will definitely be back. Would love to sit on the patio next time.

Really clean place, server was very pleasant and attentive. She even let me change my drink when they didn’t have the one I ordered and had me try another one before deciding to buy. Price was good. It started to get slightly noisy around 6 pm as more people came in. Overall 5 stars

Food and service getting much better, especially the newer servers.
The staff seems to never know promotions and be prepared to tell them. Frequent diner program also very poor, so verify visit points at all visits.

We met friends in the area- none of us were local- found this gem on open table. Great first impression, beautiful place, area was open and clean, we were seated outside and it was lovely. Service was excellent, drinks great! And the food was absolutely fabulous with many wonderful options. I had a blood orange Cosmo and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. We chose severL appetizers and snacks to share and then had a wide variety of entrees. All seven of us were wowed by our selections. Sadly we were too full for dessert, but maybe next time! Thank you- I highly recommend this spot!

Fish and chips is a good as any I've had, anywhere. Their food is outstanding across the menu and service is great. My only criticism is if you are seated inside during dinner rush, be ready for about 90-93DB ambient noise (I checked with an app) due to the concrete floors and high industrial ceilings.

Went for Easter Brunch. Wait staff was very friendly but service seemed slow. Maybe due to it being a holiday or more people out due to COVID-19 restrictions lifting.
Food was good. Good atmosphere.

The 1st time we went out for a family meal in over 1 yr. Our Easter brunch was perfect. Dining on the patio, spacing between tables was still in place. We were excited to be back at one of our favorite places in the mid-cities area. The food was just as we expected & service was attentive. Looking forward to our next visit.
