    Brought a group of friends for a Monday lunch. They set us up at a round table which was perfect! Jason took extremely good care of us and was very familiar with the dishes. We started with their delicious Brussel sprouts and spicy cauliflower…always crowd pleasers! Everyone loved their dishes …. Burgers and salads. Large portions. Looking forward to coming back for Happy Hours and dinners.

    First time and probably last time at The Thirsty Lion. SUPER loud and food is average. Waitstaff hustles which was necessary. Do not go there if you are on a first date or think you will have a quiet moment. High top tables are packed in fairly tight and depending on your seat you’ll get bumped into. Reminded me of a college pub atmosphere.

    We had a great meal. Im we were four adults and three kids. The service was slow but friendly. They were training new servers. Everyone was happy with their food. The kids had chicken tenders. Adults had burgers, a French dip, and a club. The fries were hot and we were pleased with our beverages too.

    Went for dinner on Friday night 12/17 and sat at the bar. Our third time here. Like the ambience and the food. Sat at the bar this time instead of our table reservation. The three bartenders who worked there were nice but completely clueless from a service standpoint. No, they weren't busy, we got there at 6pm and maybe 25% full. They were completely out of sync with one another. Nobody made eye contact. Every time we needed something I had to get someone's attention who was standing infront of me but not looking up. I to get their attention to get drinks, to order appetizers, to order dinner, to order a second round. Not once did anyone come up and ask if we would like to order anything or need anything, except at the end when she came to see if we need anything other than the check. One of them had no clue how to pour a Guiness properly. I don't blame them, i blame the management for putting untrained people in this position. Clearly none of them had experience at a respectable place before because not one was doing their job right. Very unfortunate because I like the food and ambience and it's close to my house, but the service at the bar needs serious improvement! Needs real management supervision and training.

    Gabby was wonderful! We had a large group and she didn’t “freak out” or feel pressured- she was accommodating and helpful, willing to take any order, even with changes to how it was presented in menu. We would request her whenever in town!!

    We came into town for the Celebration of Life for Gail Dupree, former Hillcrest High School coach/teacher who recently retired as administrator for DISD after 40 years. We started with a party of 10 ppl from FL, MN, NE & IA and were quickly accommodated with seating. The party grew to 14 ppl and our server Gabby was knowledgable, adaptable, friendly and attentive then whole time. We ordered drinks, apps and entrees enjoying all. The ambience is a sports bar so it accommodated our catching up and laughing. The Thirsty Lion did such a great job we made a reservation and came back on Saturday. Having worked as food service executive in casual dining, I highly recommend the Thirsty Lion!!

    For the price point there are so many better places to dine in Dallas. I averaged my score to three stars because our server was prompt and friendly. The experience at the door was chaotic. Although I had a reservation for four, the hosts thought our reservation was for two. There was some confusion between hosts regarding where to seat people and not just our party. The food wasn't bad nor was it expensive, but honestly it didn't live up to the price point. My husband's old fashioned tasted watered down. My cocktail was way too sweet. It wasn't the worst dining experience that I've ever had, but I wasn't inspired to return nor was the rest of our party.

    We made reservations here to watch a world cup game. Since it was a Monday, the place wasn't that busy, but they had let us pick a table near one of the big screens. I will say they only have 5 large TV's (2 at the bar) but you can see them from most places in the pub. But everything else was great. Again the staff (manager, server, host) all worked extremely hard to make sure we were comfortable, and had everything we needed. They put the game sound on which was awesome. Drinks and food was excellent. Overall this was great experience and we will certainly be back.

    Very nice ambiance, service was really nice and it was a new server who did an amazing job. Everyone is pretty cheerful at this location. This is my second time visiting TL the first time was the location at the Toyota factory. I had such a great experience there with the staff and general manager Kevin that I decided to visit the one closest to me. The food is really good and fresh, very well seasoned. I definitely recommend the spicy cauliflower, spicy chicken sandwich , the artichoke spinach dip and the raspberry martini if you stop in for happy hour.

    Patio, location and space is GREAT! Layout is fun. Food is a little salty. And music needs changing—it would make a BIG difference! It’s too “club”—MGMT came on and that was a good vibe. Maybe something more along those lines? Service was awesome!

    This was the second time we went. The first time we had nothing but praise. However this time we set at the bar and the service was horrible. Food came out wrong had to be sent back. Not because of the kitchen but the bartender wasn’t listening when we ordered. We weren’t even asked if we wanted a second drink. On a positive note the food once again was great. We will go back but never to sit at the bar.

    Megan was a nice server. The patio tables were grimy to be honest, but our server, once she learned of the problem, was happy to wipe it down. The 3 different Happy Hour apps we ordered were good; though, one was input wrong, but our server made it right. We had a nice experience!
