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.

The menu covers a number of culinary tastes and the food, overall, ranges from good to very good. Maybe sometime in my remaining years, they will wake up to the novel concept of offering gluten free bread and/or buns.

We were not pleased with our most recent visit. We have been many times before but probably won’t be coming back unfortunately to say.

The sandwiches we had were good. The Reuben was very good the fried chicken sandwich was a bit soggy and removed the bread for the 2nd half of the sandwich. The server was also good and took care of us as is usually the case

Great lively pub atmosphere with many TVs. Very good drinks and food was good quality and tasty. My only complaint was that the manager came to our table after we paid and asked if we wanted another drink. It was very obvious that he wanted us to leave so he could turn the table. We had been sitting there about 10 minutes after we cashed out. It was a busy Saturday, but I have NEVER felt that the management wanted us to hurry up and get out! I left questioning if I would go back again, even though I enjoyed the food and drinks!

We were seated in an area which was quiet, so allowed easy conversation . Wait staff were attentive and helpful. The quality of the food was excellent - fresh and flavorful. It was a great place for lunch and a chance to catch up with friends.

Al was well except for my daughter’s meal which was the Korean BBQ dish which was not good at all. My lamb burger was amazing and my mother daughters Ramen dish was outstanding.

Pleasantly surprised at how great the food and service were. So nice they let you order off the Happy Hour menu at a regular table and not just in the bar.
It was busy but the service was great! Attentive, friendly and on it!

The food choices are always good. This is a staple for us.
However, they need to bring back the flatbread -- it was bad enough losing the pizzas, but take the last of the flatbread off the menu it sad.

food good but service sucked- Brittney was awful. One salad didn't come as described, and her excuse was menus change but didn't get it the way it was described, missing ingredients (kitchen's fault). She played it off as it was our fault. Asked for no dressing on salad but received dressing, didn't split bill up correctly.

Our server was friendly and comped my wife's meal without question as the chicken in her meal was more fat than meat. other than that the food was as fantastic as always!

Went here for 9:30 Happy Hour last Fri. Dec. 6, and while the first 2 appetizers were good, the french fries were greasy, limp and tasteless. I didn't want to reorder them because we were going somewhere else afterwards. The music was more moderate which I appreciated. Service a little slow for that hour, however.

Since our last visit there, it seems that the food is less tasty, specifically the dishes we had which were overall salted. The service was good, but even though we had a reservation (we were admittedly 10 minutes late), we still had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes for the table. A bit disappointing overall and we might delay returning back to the restaurant preferring others in the area.

The Ahi Poke was out of this world. Other dishes we ordered we also superb, fresh and flavorful. The menu has something for everyone I think; a blend of worldwide cuisines. I will go back again and take others with me. My chair was not very comfy though. I am a big guy :-)
