I have eaten at thirsty's for many years. The food has always been great from the special salads at lunch to the seafood at dinner. The fish fry on Friday is unlimited. Had seafood Vincennes tonight: shrimps and pasta with veggies under melted cheese. Yum.

Thirsty's serves Prime Rib on Saturday and Monday. It is the best around. The staff is great, and friendly. A great experience.

If you are into interesting and fun bars THIS is the PLACE, A favorite of local for years and years. Interesting drinks, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Not like the trendy HIGH Priced places in South Cape that are popping up all over. This place has lasted while the competitors come and go.....

They have strange hours, but I've always loved everything I've had there! It was recommended by friends & it's been there for a long time so people have to like it.

We have been to Thirsty's several times and have not been disappointed at all. Their friendliness and delicious food were spot on every time. The pineapple in the cole slaw and the homemade crab cakes always provide an extra spark. Thirsty's always has daily specials worthy of one's attention. We are a bit fussy and this spot is a good...

Great choice of seafood at a very reasonable price. Neat and clean but not fancy. Nightly specials. Meals come with two sides, and dinner rolls.

Myself and a friend sat down and were helped by a friendly upbeat and well appointed waitress. When we asked for the grouper she said she didn't have grouper but a nice fresh white fish. We did in fact have... More

This is a jewel in Cape Coral. Service is fantastic. Good menu with lots of variety making it difficult to pick a dish. The taco salad is awesome. Soups are all good. Highly recommend.

Thank Iralgo
