Always have had a great meal and great service here. Table we sat at had poor lighting so it was really hard to see the menu.

Hosted our party of 20! They were quick to get our drinks/food, and accommodated our larger party.

Many excellent food choices to accommodate gourmands as well as folks on special diets. Staff works well as a team. Delicious and fresh tasting ingredients (we had fish tacos and grilled shrimp/noodle salad). Plentiful and flavorful coffee. And a decadent birthday brownie and ice cream extravaganza for dessert.

This is a very contemporary, fun place to dine. Lots of parking, dog friendly, covered, heated patio. Nice verity of food, with a slight Asian theme. Though it has hamburgers as well.

I eat here fairly regularly and decided to have something different than my usual line up of favorites. I was here for a casual business lunch. Chopped salad was good . Fish tacos with shrimp were good but way too soggy. These all fell apart after the first bite. I think they would be better off either using way less mayo or putting in a bowl and having each patron put there own together

Solid experience. Good drinks, great service. Nothing overly special just a good spot for a Friday night meal out.

I like their variety of food. Service wasn't great - our server might have had a bad day.. it happens. Overall, just felt they didn't want us there. Food was good but not fantastic.

We love coming to Thirsty Lion because of the huge option of menu choices but even more so that they are so accommodating for food allergies/intolerances. The food is always so amazing and they do everything they can to ensure a great meal.

We were a group of 9 so it was a bit loud to talk with this size of group- our Waitress was great!

Thirsty lion delivers a consistent product. We arrived at 12:30 and it took a while for the waitress to take our order. But overall a good experience.

Loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. The server got us everything we needed and checked in but didn’t hover. Will definitely be going back!

Great service, food was okay, loads of people (to the tune of us being seated almost 20min after our reservation time), loads of noise & distractions to keep our child occupied, and the kids menu was something to be desired. Perhaps offer a fruit or vegetable for kids otherwise parents need to bring their own to supplement.

Still very upset that you refuse to use the pizza oven at this location because all of your other locations don’t have pizza ovens and your menu all have to be the same. The pizza were your best item!

Service was a bit slow but it was a busy Friday night. Kids enjoyed their California roll but fries were below average. Wife reported risotto was ok. My salad was pretty good.

I love Thirsty Lion. I’ve gotten to know some of the staff and look forward to seeing them. Every staff member I’ve had is always pleasant and fun for our table. Food is always good.
