Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill – Scottsdale
Book your next event with us
5 of us met for supper and had great food. We've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. It is a noisy, busy place so conversation is difficult at times but we can work with that. Dylan was amazing.
Service was super slow.
Great meal for Father's day brunch
Terrible service, terrible food. Took my husband and my dad there for Father’s Day. No one liked their meal and the service was awful.
Celebrated pre-father’s day lunch and was definitely a hit to my family. Ordered gastro and lions burger for me and my son and It was both yummy and we were satisfied. Nice before going to the mall. Staff were excellent. Food was served fast. And COFFEE was very good too. Going back for sure.
Always enjoy going to Thirsty Lion before movie at Camelview. Like to checkout new/seasons all menus. Food is great, service good - can be a bit noisy if place packed. Have great bar to relax and enjoy conversation before/after meal.
We have eaten there several times and it was fine. This time was a special event with friends. As the host of the event I was very embarrassed that I had taken them there.
Nothing special but it was an okay meal
Final dinner in AZ with family. Amazing food and service!
I have dined at Thirsty Lion in the past and have given very high ratings. This time I was very disappointed. I dined for restaurant week. We ordered the artichoke dip and it was very good. We then ordered from the restaurant week menu. We never were given refills of our drinks even though we were told they were coming. They had to redo my bill 3 times and after about 45 minutes still was not right. I was overcharged not given the prices for restaurant week. I was also marked a no show for my reservation. If you decide to dine here my favorite dish is off the appetizer menu, the bacon wrapped shrimp.
The server was incredibly awkward. We ordered drinks and they came after our meal was already brought to the table. Not to mention we ordered from the AZ Restaurant Week menu, and the appetizer came after the entree. No apologies. This place and their management do not care about customer service.
We have recently discovered TL for both lunch and dinner. They do a great job with a varied menu and everything seems to be very good. Service is always friendly and prompt. The meals are well prepared with a little extra effort in terms of creativity and presentation. Portions are generous and you won't leave hungry. I recently tried the falafel wrap which was great and a nice change from a burger though they do a fine job with those including the Impossible Burger (meatless meat) which is almost indistinguishable from the real thing and totally tasty!
The Korean/Asian plates are well spiced and delicious as was the recently added poke bowl.
It's noisy and the music wasn't to my taste but it certainly gives off a nice energetic buzz.
We will definitely go back. I'd recommend it both for lunch and supper.
Food was fantastic
Erica was a great server. Snagged some happy hour prices on starters that really helped the bill for our 7-person party.
Very disappointing that the movie night pizza special has been eliminated. Happy Hour items have declined. Cheese dip was blah. Gluten free options were minimal. Decided on the bacon wrapped shrimp on the Happy Hour. No soy sauce or bbq sauce were available as gluten free so rice was bland and over cooked. Shrimp was also over cooked. Everything was very dry and unsatisfying. We won’t be returning.
Thirsty Lion never disappoints. We sat outside, waitress disappeared for long periods. Don’t think there was enough help on the patio. Sad that they no longer have pizzas on their menu.
Service was very slow
Food took forever, didn’t receive some items, incompetent server
We went for Easter brunch. Everything was so good! The rhubarb cheesecake was delicious!
Thoroughly ordinary. Not at all bad, just nothing at all remarkable. If you’re shopping, at the movies, or in the area & looking to stop & eat- here you go.
Burgers were awesome as was our server. A bit pricey.
I have been twice at this restaurant. The first time my date and I walked out because the service was just horrible. The second time service was a little better however my date was very specific in his order. He said I want a burger with only bacon and grilled onions nothing else, he also said I want my fries well done. I order the ribeye. When the food showed up my order was fine however they brought him a burger with everything on it. I couldn’t find the waitress so I walked to the back to tell her the order was wrong. She told me she thought he said no cheese only. I had to eat alone since the replacement burger took forever to come to the table. The manager brought it and we told him it was our second time here. He tried to offer a free appetizer for next time and we said no thank you. I am not coming back.
Great outdoor seating
DJ was the best server!
Dos Equis draft had a funny taste to it. Other than that, everything was great
Great drinks. Food can definite improve. Good service, friendly staff. Nice and quiet
Food was great and our server was outstanding. But points off for seating my guests at a different table and for canceling my Open Table reservation an hour after I checked in.
Slow waiter got some pet of the order wrong took too much time to get the food almost an hour , not friendly at all ! The food nothing great
A group of 5 of us met for evening meal. We had all eaten here in the past. We had another great evening! We had cheese burger & fries, southwest chicken salad, Tuscan chicken and orange chicken. Everyone was pleased with their entrees. The restaurant is loud and basketball games were on the tvs so we needed to speak up to visit but that is to be expected during March Madness. We will be back :)
Problems with two salads but our waiter and the manager were very helpful They gave USA comp desert after fixing the salads.
Happy hour mysteriously 'cancelled' on a busy weekend despite signs everywhere advertising it. C- food. Server was nice and attentive. Would never go back.
Delicious corned beef and cabbage for St Patrick’s Day! Please consider adding this to your permanent menu!
Wonderful service and friendly staff in general
Great food. Extremely attentive polite friendly server.
Our server Hunter was excellent, he was attentive and we enjoyed having him. Great beer and the cauliflower was spectacular, a must when you go there.
Average ... average .. average. Nothing stood out. Was just in a convenient location at the time.
Service was great. Good drink selection, food was mediocre
Have never been disappointed at this location and wasn't this time either.
Cool bar.. Eclectic menu with lots of options.. Variety of beers and drinks. Food was very good. Service was attentive. Definitely will go again
Place was packed but we were seated right awau with our reservation....however probably took server at least 20 minutes to take our order...he was appropriately apologetic...the rest of his service was pristine...pleasantly surprised with their willingness to make a few substitutions...the cobb salad with salmon instead of chicken was divine and perfectly portioned!
Always dependable and a good choice for before and after a movie. Good food and good service.
