Visited this location because they were the only venue in town carrying the Nebraska game. We had great service but the atmosphere is confusing...part 50's bar, part tiki bar, part sports bar. The sports bar part is great but guests must go through the other parts to get to it. Food was okay. Will probably only do appetizers & beverages... More

My wife and I attended a reunion here paid $35 to do so. For those prices a keg of beer was provided (best part of the night) and we expected to see some decent appetizers. Were we disappointed! They included some little meatballs in white sauce, deep fried cheese balls, something cut up in squares trying to pass for pizza,... More

We look for four areas when we eat out (listed in importance): Cleanliness of establishment, quality of food, quality of service and finally price. Thirsty's is spotlessly clean with pleasant atmosphere, great tasting food (especially the prime rib sandwich), but has substandard service. The prices were inline and somewhat reasonable for the portion size. Now, back to the service--or lack... More

Good place to get a steak and beer. Steaks have good seasoning and beer selection is good. Sometimes gets pretty busy and service suffers so plan accordingly.

Friendly and fast service, best sirloin I've had and salmon was excellent. Huge portions so meals can be shared. Clean.

Anytime we get an early sunday night with just us 2, we immediately go have a light super and a few brews. Staff is wonderful, food is amazing and they make one mean bloody mary! :)

You never choose this place if you have a tight schedule. Sometimes you get your order in and food delivered in10-15 minutes; other times it might take 45 minutes to be served. For the most part, the food is quite good, but my experience with the prime rib special has been mixed. At its best, it can be one of... More

We were staying at a hotel off the interstate after a very long day on the road. We drove down the local road and saw Thirstys. We were a little cautious because the name seemed a little bit too close to the Hooters type restaurants. We could not have been more incorrect. The place is quite spacious, and we saw... More

Having come to Hays many many times this was my first time to Thirsty's. We had a very large group (funeral for family_) and we went to Thirsty's after the funeral. I have to say the food was awesome & reasonable priced, the room was perfect, the server was wonderful and efficient.

Extremely roomy place with a small banquet hall for parties. Eclectic decor and interesting layout. Great for large groups. Wait staff is mediocre at best. Menu and prices are similar to Applebee's, around $10 - $20 per person. Everything from steak to burgers on the menu. Salmon is excellent. Drinks are strong. If you want a decent meal without the...
