The food was good and the service was really good. They text you when your table is ready which is nice. its a little loud but we could still talk to each other. The servers were very nice and checked on us often we did not have to wait for them to come around.

Best Wings I've ever had, not your usual boring same old thing chain. This place rocks, It is kind of loud but the place was so much fun. Get the Lonley Pony Sauce for your wings. Great draft beer selection. Greatr stop if your headed for Cedar Point

Only had to ask 3 bartenders for a drink, 1st 2 didn't seem to care if we were alive. Amanda, #3, was very attentive, & said she'd been there only 2 weeks. Great Peach Martini, Amanda! Food was expensive bar schlock. $13 for a house salad w chicken, $10 for shrimp tacos with a mystery white sauce (Elmers glue?), nasty.... More

Unfortunately, some of the people and the food made it impossible yo like. While the host was friendly, we made our way to the bar to wait for our table. Two bartenders were less than friendly, which made us wonder why we were there. Amanda was new and was super friendly and made me the BEST Peach Martini!!! Little did... More

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.

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
