Went to happy hour last night, no discount on food, bland food, soggy fries, dated atmosphere. Nothing special. No wine variety. On a good note, our server was very nice:)

The food was good but was surprised they only served beer and wine. Was surprised to see so many kids in the place. Was raining the night we went so we were not able to use the patio but it looked nice.More

The name Thirstys has nothing to do with beverages we serve. Thirsty's was named after Frankie our daughters English Bulldog!! Frankie's tongue was always hanging out making her appear constantly thirsty. That is also the reason for the Bulldog logo! Frankie left this world this...More

This review doesn't really warrant a response but It doesn't take a genius to read between the lines on this review especially since members of your party apologized to our staff for some of the bad behavior of "some" members of your party!

Dog friendly on the patio. Brought out a water bowl and treats for the dog! Food was delicious - I had the chipotle chicken wrap and my friend had a turkey wrap. Very good. Service was excellent.

They have really great appetizers and so many brands of beer you may have a hard time deciding what to get. Their home made chips are delicious !
