I've never had a bad meal at Thirsty Lion. Atmosphere is always great, noisy but not annoying. Great social atmosphere, great service, delicious food.

My wife and I had Fish and Chips. The fish was good and hot. 3 large pieces. The fries were cold greasy leftovers, very disappointing and unexpected. The service was good. Having made reservations through Opentable we were seated immediately upon arrival.

We thought the food was good. The Scotch eggs were good sausage didn’t have a lot of flavor but good. Fish & chips were good. The Beer & cheese soup was great. Service was excellent, restaurant was very cool. Had a great time.

Food and service was great. I was in a wheelchair and we could not find any handicapped spots to park. Plus trying to manuver around the tables to get out after more people arrived was difficult. Table were too close together and no major walkway.

We had a child with us and the surrounding group was extremely loud. It’s what it is at a restaurant but the hope was to sit outside and relax. It wasn’t that. Just passionate fans enjoying their team.

Let me start by saying I eat often t Thirsty Lion. The food is always good the servers friendly and very good at what they do. This visit was a business lunch. The fish and chips were spot on. My Roast Pork Kimchi Fried Rice had raw egg mixed with the fried egg on top. My fantastic waitress Ellen was all over it and had a new plate out to me in less than 5 minutes without missing a beat

The replacement plate was perfect

I've been going to Thirsty Lion for a few years now, it's always been a great experience. The food is great, service is friendly, and they have a fun atmosphere. They adapted well in COVID and have lots of outdoor seating options.

TL sent me a text saying my table was ready, which was great! I was seated promptly and waited for a friend. I believe it was 20 minutes before one waitress came over and said she wanted to let me know that my waiter would be coming over shortly but she would bring water and that they weren’t ignoring me! Ok, so I waited another 10 minutes then asked for a waiter from someone else. The same waitress came back and I asked if I could order a drink. She took my order and said the waiter for our tables computer just went down but he would be there soon. I got my drink and we visited for a bit longer. Then the waiter came and took our order. It was way to long to wait for someone to service us upon arrival!! The food we ordered was delicious. We had the exceptional California rolls and then ordered salmon for one entree and sea scallops for another. Both of which were really good. The evening was beautiful, the weather very nice on the patio but one should not have to wait a half hour for someone to come to your table. And you shouldn’t have to wave someone down after waiting a half hour to order a drink! Poor service but great food!

Serves was horrible. Never got drink refills. Waitress came to our table twice. Once to take our food order and then again to bring our check. Appetizer was way over cooked.

Food was mediocre and the service was worse.
My hubs had a burger with fries. The burger was greasy, the fries were cold and absolutely soaked in grease. I had a salad...it was fine but nothing I couldn't make at home for $4. The server was down right rude.
For the cost of going out these days there are better options available. I realize all restaurants are hurting but it's time to adjust the business. We will likely never go back to pre-covid days...and we will never go back to thirsty lion. If a burger and a salad with no alcohol is near $50 buck it better be a damn fine burger and salad served with a smile.

Loud music both indoors and outside are my biggest issue with Thirsty Lion. My friend wears hearing aides and has a difficult time hearing my conversation with her because of the loud music.
