Thirsty's left me a little hungry

The food at Thirsty's is quite good! I had the shrimp dinner and everything was very tasty, but not particularly plentiful for the price. Also, the ambiance could use some freshening up. Staff was nice and helpful.

Thirsty's is the kind of place that some might criticize as backward or old fashioned, and somehow lacking in pizzazz or dishes to give you a "new experience" in eating. You know, living in America, we eat pretty much every single day, and it can't be a brand new experience every time we do it. I kind of like to... More

Arrived here on a Friday night with my parents for dinner. The place is small & unassuming from the outside, as well as on the inside. It looks like an older home that has been converted into a restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly & fast. All of the seem to be rushing around. On Fridays, they have a 2... More

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
