a little disappointing. I had a bacon cheeseburger, with "seasoned fries" on the side. By seasoned, I suppose they mean salt and pepper, because it tasted like potato, and I put the salt and pepper on myself. I like my meat rare, this one seemed a little on the raw side. My wife had no complaints about hers Staff appeared... More

Our group met here for a meet & greet before our event. The staff was great, food was outstanding and everyone had a great time bowling. The property was clean & inviting. Would definitely visit The Thirsty Pony again when in the area.

The prices for food were outstanding but the price for drinks were a little over the edge. They should have drink specials and popcorn or pretzels for the customers

Hated the hotel but the restaurant was good. we ate here for lunch once, dinner once, and once for a late night snack. Service was always good - quick and friendly, and the food was good.

What can I say. Deep fried grease. If you like that kind of grease. This is your place. Burgers looked greasy and the wings were totally saturated.

My husband and I went there to get away from the kids after a long day at Cedar Point. The naked wings were awesome. The burger was big and juicy. My husband and I love craft beers. Although there was one good IPA from Columbus, for the most part, they had big, fruity, expensive, gimmicky drinks.

Food was less than mediocre, staff great. Menu looks appealing to families but taste is where they missed the boat...

Although service was terrible, the chili I ordered was pretty good. It better than 20 minutes to get it. There is a horse wagering business inside with TV screens of many race tracks.

I wanted to like this place. The menu was great, it was away from cedar point by a half mile or so, so tourist trap didn't enter our minds. The waitress was prompt taking our order but after that, all went downhill. We were one of 5 tables in the place and everyone had to wait forever on their food.... More

Looked really crowded but decided to try it anyway, got right in, sat right down. Wait staff was very helpful with menu and brew selection. House brew was good and cold, service was fast, food was great. Will definitely return.
