We stopped in on Sunday afternoon to watch the games. Food was good and quick, service was great, but we didn't last more than an hour because the tvs were SO LOUD. We were yelling across the table to be heard. It wasn't packed, there...More

FYI: Thirsty Buffalo just re-did their menu! That shows an establishment cares. Four of us came in on a Sunday and we were served by Shawn. He was tending bar as well and still was a great server to us. We had the fish tacos,...More

I'm happy to hear you're as excited about our new menu as I am! Plus it sounds like you came in on the perfect night -- nothing goes better with Chicken Cordon Blue than a round of trivia. It doesn't hurt that Shawn was your...More

The restaurant where we wanted to eat turned out to be so noisy that we opted for a second choice. Judging by the six or seven TV screens, this place is probably better suited for drinking than eating. Our server was kind enough to seat...More

Mike, I have to hand it to you -- you're a brave soul! Trying our Ghost Chili Siracha fries on your first visit? Not many can say they've done that! Glad to hear Ann kept your water glass full all through your fry course, and...More

Came here on a whim, as we were staying nearby. We came a few minutes before opening, but the waiter was awesome and offered to seat us early. Food was plentiful and good. $2 Bloody Marys and mimosas were delicious. We had a great brunch...More

Purchased a groupon for this restaurant and had dinner. First time staying in Buffalo area. We ate outside. Our orders seemed to take a long time. When mine arrived, there was a mistake (potato salad instead of coleslaw that I ordered). I didn't want to...More

Thanks for stopping by when you were in Buffalo. Although I'm happy to read you were able to save some money with our Groupon, it's disappointing to read that your food and service had some issues. There clearly was some miscommunication about what sides you...More
