First time doing a review, I have been here numerous times and it never disappoints. The employees I've encountered are always in great disposition. Stopped in for a quick bite excellent Guinness French Onion Soup and Carnival Calamari. Looking forward to going back soon.

At best this place is just "OK". The menu is diverse choices but their entrees are not that great. Stick to the bar/pub type food and you should be alright. The service is hit or miss. Once time it was fine, the other I had...More

A gathering of family came together and had great meals. We particularly liked the pretzel appetizer and would highly recommend if you like pretzels. They come in a cone cooked along with dipping sauce and are very long and soft and easy to eat along...More

We have been here several times and the food and service have consistently been good. They have outdoor seating, which is nice (it faces the parking lot, but it's not a very busy lot). Their beer selection is decent as well.

A good to place to go for lunch. Doesn't take reservation but normally don't need a long wait. I like crab cake sandwich and French onion soup here. Not a fan of the Thai fried rice on the menu.

We visited Thirsty Turtle for dinner tonight and, while I don't write many reviews, this was worth writing about! Fabulous, fresh food at reasonable prices. While it has a bar, families are obviously welcome. I had a blackened chicken salad and my husband had crab...More

The French onion soup was fantastic-creamy cheese with Guinness stout based broth. The flank steak and burger on pretzel roll were delicious and cooked to perfection. Nice selection of craft beers and bourbons. Double expresso was priced too high but very good. A surprising selection...More
