This is a relatively new, nicely decorated restaurant in a strip mall but it's back away from the other stores with it's own parking lot. The food and service were great - we were there with a large party including young children. Everyone ordered something different and everyone enjoyed the food. We were there for lunch on Sunday - it was not busy then but we understand it's very busy during the week and for dinner.

There is a sign for the Thirsty Turtle on the Columbia Turnpike but the entrance and ample parking are in the back.The day we visited there was a robust lunch crowd; a mix of families and local business clients. Reservations for less than 5 are not accepted. It's typical pub fare with a good selections of salads and drinks. I will say I ordered a Riesling and assumed it was a sweet Riesling particularly since I knew the brand. I should have asked and the menu should have said DRY. The waitress graciously took it back for a replacement and apologized for not mentioning that specifically because it happens often she said. Reasonable prices, you're not rushed and there is an outdoor area if weather permits.

Spacious restaurant that easily accommodated our group of 13 people. Pub type menu with good mix or sandwiches and entrees. Service was good. Reasonably priced. Plenty of TV's in the bar area.

Lots of parking but it is tucked away in the back of a strip shopping center so keep an eye out for the sign!

A good place for a good meal--especially a burger--anytime or day. The wait staff always have a smile and give attentive service. Its a place you can depend on for a good meal in a pleasant, clean environment. So, when you want to go out to eat and are not sure what you want...you can always find something on the menu. Or, if you crave a good burger...nothing like the Thirsty Turtle.
