I guess we hit it at the right time because it wasn't really busy. The service was great and our food was on point.
Fantastic Scallops and esp. artichoke. First time visit!
Horribly hot in the restaurant. Where's the A/C? It was like a sauna in there. Had to find a server to get drinks refilled and ask for water refills. Bathroom were absolutely disgusting. Floors were wet and slipoerry and my wife almost fell. I told someone but they never even wiped it up. I wiped it up personally with a napkin. Food was okay, but not a good day for the money spent. Very disappointed. Would not recommend nor probably go back. Dirty facility, slow to non-existent service and not a real ambient environment.
The queso & chips is over cooked and no flavor. It was curdled. Portions are huge. Flavor of food is just okay. The table was reserved for 4 people and they only gave us two menus. Ordered drinks and the waitress didn't ask about appetizers - finally got the app ordered and that took forever. Then got food ordered and it took awhile. Just average food for a lot of money.
Terrible service and extremely slow kitchen and staff. Poor management, server, and just poor overall customer service for restaurant week. Took over 2 1/2 hours for food to arrive. Waiter checked in maybe every hour and was very forgetful. Food was like dive bar food.
Horrible experience. Went to Thirsty Lion for restaurant week. Had reservations & were seated right away. Received our drinks and appetizers within 20 minutes of arriving. Took a while for us to be able to place our entree order. We finally did & waited for over 30 minutes with still no entrees. Within that time a manager came over to clear our appetizer plates & the waiter came over & we told them both separate times we are waiting for our entrees. Then we were told about 10 minutes later by the waiter that the order was never put in. We waited another 20 minutes or so & received our entrees. Both burgers were overcooked & both of the fry servings were undercooked & not edible. We told the waiter about the fries & he checked with the kitchen & was told that it was an undercooked batch & they were waiting for more to come out. So all of the runners, waiters & managers all thought those fries were worthy to go out on customers plates. Bad management. After the waiter told us he was waiting for more fries we put in our desert order because by that time we were ready to go. We waited 25 minutes for the desert, asked the waiter the status & were told that they had to go out & buy the ingredients for our deserts because they did not have them. Are you kidding me? You do not have the ingredients for the deserts you put on the menu for restaurant week? So after being there two hours, we did not receive our full entree & did not receive our desert. No manager ever came by to check on us to see why were had been sitting there for so long without food. The managers were too busy flirting with each other. It was unbelievable. We normally receive wonderful service at Thirsty Lion but last night was horrible. It was clear that the kitchen was not run well & the managers cared more about flirting with each other then taking care of customers. The managers should have been on top of it & they were not.
The Restaurant Week menu was delicious and the portions were huge.
Excellent service by Ashley and a great meal and experience!
We had a French Dip that was fatty and greasy, Turkey Club sandwich and the bread was greasy, bacon was gross. The other entree was Fish and Chips and again fries where soggy and greasy. It had been awhile since we went to this restaurant and we will not be going back.
Mediocre service food and drinks
Made a reservation for four at 6pm and arrived about 20 minutes early and they were happy to seat us right away.
We were greeted by Trevor who was our server and he did a great job making conversation and taking care of us with an appetizer and drinks before ordering our main meals.
The place was very crowded which was nice to see.
Ron, thank you very much for offering such great feedback regarding your experience. We are are very pleased to read your comments and will be sure to commend Trevor on a job well done in taking care of you and your guests.

The food was just okay. Not bad not amazing. The drinks were the same. It’s a cool place ambiance wise but in my opinion other restaurants have more to offer. I would go again but it wouldn’t be a first choice.
We're very sorry to have let you down in any way. If anything is anything short of amazing, we certainly welcome you to ask for a manager so we can learn more of the specifics and to make things right for you before you leave. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you can give us another try.

We were greeted with a big welcome at the door and taken to our table and informed the waitress would be there shortly . She arrived welcomed us again and brought water and glasses and the menu. Returned asked if we had any questions which my wife did and she answered those and took our order. While waiting for our meal the manager came by and welcomed us and asked if we had any question which we didn’t and apologized for the sound level. That was not necessary but a welcome gesture. Meal arrived prepared just the way we requested and as tasty as we expected. Meal over bill came and we asked for boxes to take food home and the waitress saw that my meal was really soft, so she left and returned with a plastic container. Departed restaurant totally satisfied.

Excellent attentive service. Food came out quickly and was tasty. All in all a great visit.
Great customer service - waiter was very attentive and did an awesome job :)
Our server was on top of it! The food was good and served quickly!
One person in our group has some health issues and has very specific dietary needs. The chef personally came out and discussed her needs and made sure they were understood. The entire staff made us feel comfortable and we were able to relax and enjoy the meal with fewer worries. They were great! We will most definitely be back soon.
Thank you Kathy for this glowing review. We really appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback. We take dietary needs and allergies seriously. We will certainly share this review with the entire team. We are so pleased that you had a great experience and we are looking forward to seeing you again very soon. Sincerely, Amy

Great service and the food! No matter what you order, it’s delicious!
Had major excitement there was a car fire next to the restaurant!
Came here for the first time for az restaurant week and thought we would give it a try. Appetizers were good and probably best part of the meal, we had the meatballs and shrimp. The entrees were so so. My husband had the bison burger since they were out of the ribs. He said it was very bland and not much flavor. I had the Tuscan chicken it was dry and not much flavor.
For dessert we had the apple crumble and creme brûlée which was pretty good. Our drinks sat empty for awhile and service was okay. I was disappointed overall. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either.
Too much light, food average, service so so, food so so, better go to culinary dropout like i always fo, the first time i try aomething else it ddisapoontsp
Food was amazing! Service was great. Definitely will be going back for brunch!
Food was subpar. Dirty plates and glasses. When checked in for reservation we checked in then they forgot about us and we had to ask again about being seated before we saw them panic at forgetting us.
Always amazing!!! Great food, great service, and good prices! One of our weekly favorites!
This restaurant was very busy and it was clear by how our waitress was running around like a chicken with her head cut off, that they were understaffed. It took a bit to get our food and my boyfriend didn’t get the side of barbecue he asked for, but everything else was great. She apologized so many times and told us that the food runner had quit that afternoon. We understood that restaurants are struggling to find employees right now and look forward to coming back when they are fully staffed.
A very nice dining experience on the patio, outstanding food, service, and beautiful weather!
Great service & yummy food!
Service was excellent!
