Good for a quick lunch

Dropped into Thirsty's Restaurant for a quick lunch. Fish fry was the special for the day and we both had that. Two filets of fish each and they were well cooked and good size.

If you are looking for unpretentious, basic, well prepared and home -cooked -feeling food, this is the place. We eat here often, enjoying their side salad with home made blue cheese dressing, which teems with chunks of blue cheese, blackened grilled fish, and fresh vegetable...yes, we can eat

Service is speedy and the food is always good. Their specialty is fish and it's a great deal. This is the oldest restaurant in Cape Coral and doesn't have the greatest atmosphere but the food and service make up for that. I've never had a bad meal here.

Whenever we're in Cape Coral we go to Thirsty's for lunch. It is like old home week. Food is always outstanding and service is better. Highly recommend when in the Cape. Located one block off of Cape Coral Parkway.

In our continuing efforts to "eat local," we went to Thirsty's for lunch. What a wonderful surprise! We went in the back door and were seated in the back room because the front was full, a testament to their popularity. We both ordered the fish sandwich, which came out piping hot and enormous. It was two huge pieces of crispy,... More

Found this on the side of the main road just a mile from where we were staying, outside was very simple with just a couple of cars parked outside but we thought we'd give it a go, went in to find an empty room full of tables which wasn't an encouraging start however this turned out to be the overflow...

Well I finally got around to Thirsty. The oldest eatery in Cape Coral. It is not fancy but you get a warm welcome as if you have been coming here for years. At least that is how I felt. I was seated promptly ask for my drink & given a menu. Before I could peruse the menu my server sung... More
