We stayed at Castaway Bay hotel which is right across from this restaurant. I'm a horse fan so anything named the Thirsty Pony we had to try. The atmosphere was great, with lots of decorations and things to look at. It had live betting on horse racing so at any time you can see multiple races happening. Our waiter was nice and helpful and the food was delicious. Reasonably priced for the type of food it was, and the portions were big also. There is a bar connected on the porch that's the Drunken Donkey, didn't get any drinks so not sure how those were but the name was clever. But the food was good, the atmosphere was great, and it was better than going to a chain that I could go to any time locally. Worth a stop in!

We went to the Thirsty Pony every night after Cedar Point. The food was so delicious and the drinks were the best that I have ever had. I cannot wait to go back next year.

The wings and pizza were some of the best I have ever had!!! They also have a great selection of beers to choose from. You can also bet on the horses while you are there.
