Surprised I haven't reviewed this yet - it's one of our favorite spots

I glanced at some of the reviews and they are pretty much spot on. We don't go out late at night much - usually in by 8:30pm - so I can't say what happens after that. Of the few times my husband and I have been there late - 1 out of 2 times - there was a fight. However,... read more

Thurstons Pub is exactly that. A Pub. What sets it apart is the employees and the food which is superior than any other small pub of its kind in the area. You get a good amount of food when you order and I usually need a box to take some home to have later. Drinks are inexpensive and your best... More

It's your average townie bar in a strip mall, but I was particularly not impressed when the advertised happy hour special for "domestic drafts" did not include any beer except Coors, Miller, and Bud. (Thanks, I'd rather be sober.) The food was pretty good, the crowd was so-so, and I'm pretty sure this was our only visit. However, I did... More

As another reviewer said very aptly; the ambiance when u walk in is a DE-appetizer... it definitely makes u question eating here. However, I did trudge on because I too was trying it also thru a Groupon deal. I write this review with a sense of mixed feelings 4 Thurston's. Here's the skinny: The Good: -The food... *Burgers were really,... More

Tried this place on a whim cause I had a groupon deal for it and was pleasantly surprised. When you 1st walk in your immediate thought will probably be "omg...eat food here? heck no." It definitely has that dirty bar look to it. But the menu is surprisingly decent and the food was great. The burgers and fries and apps... More

A regular hang out for my friends and I. Always a good time. Food is good and lots of choices. Drinks and service are decent. They always have good happy hour specials on food and drinks. Check out Wednesdays for karaoke night. Always fun and they have some good singers.
