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.
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.
Good food. Excellent service. Yes it is a noisy place
I was lucky to think ahead and make a reservation because the place was super busy. It was a great location for a casual get together. Some what noisy since it was a Saturday evening but we did fine with our conversation. Our server was Casey and she was AMAZING!! We had Cuban sandwiches which were so good and another in our group had the bacon wrapped steak - spot on perfect! We look forward to coming back again.
Service was off this night. I had a much better experience last visit when I ate at the bar.
Always good food at the Thirsty Lion Pub! Farm to table, fresh, and tasty! Love to eat here-my go to restaurant.
We enjoyed the selection on the menu.
Always been a fan of Thirsty Lion and this time was no different. The menu selection is always great and the variety of wine and beer always makes it a nice stop. This time, the server was superb. Will always visit a Thirsty Lion when looking for variety, TV's and great service.
Got sat next to the front bar area and it was close to club like loud in there, which is fine but this was just a dinner for me the wife and a kid. Made it tough to have normal dinner conversation. Also, we waited for quite awhile...somewhere around 10 minutes before our waitress arrived. After that though everything was great.
Others commented thier food was so-so. I got the fish and chips and the fish was obviously manaufactured (Sysco) and was bone dry. No flavor. Service was spotty.
The service is Grade A - Super waiter. We had a wonderful waiter, and the person who seated us was excellent. The problems are the seating and the noise - and, I'm sorry to say, my beef sandwich was so dry, even extra dressing didn't help. Most of the tables are high-rise, and there are only two booths. The music made it impossible to have a decent conversation, and when the room became more crowded, the noise was the loudest of any restaurant in Scottsdale (at least during lunchtime!). Between people shouting into their cell phones, and other shouting to be heard across their tables - it made for a very unpleasant dining experience.
Better choices in the neighborhood. Yard House is a superior choice
Great service, waiter was awesome and food/drinks delicious. I would recommend to my family and friends for a fun night out after the movies:)
Thank you for an awesome evening.
It was overall solid
Friendly staff, good food, convenient location, will go again.
We were all pleased with the food and felt it was a very good choice
Fun spot for casual dining. A little loud.
Great restaurant with great food and great service.
The food was excellent! Try the chicken curry soup, it will not disappoint.
What a disappointment. Having made a reservation through Open table we were still asked to sit at high tops in the bar. Our server was short, cold and totally unengaged. It took FOREVER to order, and again and ETERNITY to receive food. The server was the type who seemed to intentionally avoid eye contact as to all 20 minutes to pass before revisiting the table for any reason. The order was incorrect. The manger immediately apologized and offered to re-make the food but given the length of time required for the first order we would have one person eating alone 30 minutes after everyone else had finished. He did discount the price of the food.
The food quality of food was average at best. This is basic average bar food, no different than any sports bar on any corner in America. The "Scotch Eggs" which seemed to be one of few unique items were absolutely tasteless. There is simply nothing positive to say about this restaurant.
Worst fries I've ever had.
