On what appeared to be a very busy Wednesday evening while on vacation my wife and I decided to try the Thirsty Lion. The inside was very noisy and crowded so we asked the hostess if we could sit outside and found a nice table in the shade. Service throughout the meal was excellent with a waiter that was helpful...

This place originally opened as one of the several locations of the miserable Cucina Cucina chain of Italian restaurants, HQ'd in Seattle. Thirsty Lion had (has) a successful location in downtown Portland & they eventually took over this shuttered location where they offer typical pub food and fresh-baked pizza in the oven that was left after Cucina went banko, a...

I have been here twice now and both times have been great. The bar staff is very friendly. They have a nice selection of food. Not overwhelming but just enough, The sirloin steak was better than some New York Strip and Filet Mignon I have had at other "Steak" houses. And of course they have a very nice selection of... More

This sports bar has a good Happy Hour Menu and an extensive wine and beer selection. Our group enjoyed the Old Rasputin Imperial Stout, Rogue Red Ale and Kona Longboard Lager. We ate from the Happy Hour Menu and savored the pub fries which I really enjoyed (they were not overly seasoned as they are at some venues); the garlic... More

The food tasted ok but was average. Service was Good but definitely got the sales pitches to order more stuff. Only real disappointment was dessert. The brownie was very dry and probably old or freezer burned.

I meet here every once in a while with my agents/friends. It's a very nice relaxed atmosphere. It can get loud but that's ok. The food & the service is good.

Nice patio dining - burgers and beer - service is fairly consistent - happy hour menu is nice - there's something for everyone on the menu. Can be a bit noisy in the main dining area.

A great location near the Saturday market. Great food and beer selection and we especially enjoyed the scotch eggs, pretzels and Brussel sprouts. Beware of the blackberry cider :-) The pavement seating on a hot day was perfect and the staff were super attentive without being annoying. The inside also looked very nice and very spacious. Well worth a visit.
