Service was poor, food was subpar, and the drinks were laughably bad. It’s a shame because previous visits have been very enjoyable.

We were looking for a brunch spot with cocktails and saw that y’all have brunch on the weekends. It was delicious and fast and we have now decided this will be our go-to brunch space when friends come into town.

This place is an organizational mess. Our server was more attentive to other tables and people coming in than our table. Food arrived super late and cold. My couscous Risotto was dry from sitting under the lap for so long. Just think if they are ok serving you food like that they are ok with everything else.

Never again!

I can say I did love their napkins.

Appetizer portions were small..maybe because they were on happy hour menu. Calimari was not hot, crispy when it arrived to table. Food was tasty, but nothing extraordinary. Our server was nice and took care of us. Nothing to recommend to anyone, really.

It was Halloween so not very busy, except for some tables on the patio and a group of us inside watching football and baseball. The tuna tower was not as fresh as usual. Brussell sprouts were fantastic. Ruben sandwich was very good. Good service.

We love the pear martinis at this place. Unfortunately they were out but the replacement was equally as good we did have an issue with our food not being way we ordered it but the manager quickly took care of it and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of..

We were excited to try the Thirsty Lion. We had reservations but the place was empty. They say us all the way at the back of the restaurant where the extra stools were stacked, odd but at least it was quiet. We ordered some drinks of the happy menu. They were extremely weak and overall disappointing. We ordered a large pretzel for an appetizer. This was good, warm, fresh and with good dipping sauces. I ordered an ahi salad and husband ordered a rice and beef dish. Our daughter ordered a chicken salad. I ordered a second drink it did not arrive until after dessert. We were actually shocked when our dinners arrived. The plates were miniature. They each were served in side salad bowls. It was pitiful. For 18 dollars each this seemed like a joke. They tasted alright but not satisfying at all. In fact we all were still hungry we each ordered a dessert. We never all three order a dessert, in fact we rarely order dessert at all. Our waitress seemed to forget us in the back of the restaurant as we sat without drinks or serve for long stretches. The bill came and I was surprised to see the Credit card machine offer gratuity at 18% and up. $161 for one of the most disappointing meals I have had in a while. We will not be returning.

Kitchen was challenged. Never received app and food took 45 minutes to come. Food was good when it came and server was friendly and apologetic. Assume just worker shortages.

In my reservation request I asked for a booth. When we arrived no booth available. The place is very loud. The menu was varied but minimal. The Server was not around much. The food was mediocre. For what we spent I expect better. Not on my list for a return trip. Disappointed.

Great food.

Service was odd

We had reservation for indoor seating but when we got there we were told they didn’t have anything other than outdoor or high tops.

I chose this restaurant over another choice because we didn’t want high top seating.

There were several empty low top seats. When I asked if we could have one of those we were told they were reserved. I pointed out I had reservations too but got no response.

Restaurant was LOUD so loud that I couldn’t hear the people I was sitting with. There was lots of smiling lol

I also was taken aback by how close the tables were to one another. There was a sign saying based on cdc guidelines in May, masks weren’t needed for vaccinated people. And they were passing that along to their employees.

But I’m sure many unvaccinated people were in there. And this was my first restaurant where servers were unmasked and it didn’t sit right with me. Especially since they had to lean in close to hear us. Since it was so loud.

All that said and done. Our food tasted amazing. Great work in the kitchen

I just wish the dining room had some distancing, (a lots changed since may folks) was less loud, and they honored my reservations

One of the worst places for service I've ever been. I waited for 45 mins for a jack Daniels on the rocks. Two waiters came and asked me multiple times what I was having. It's not difficult. Two ingredients that's it. I'll never come back.

Great value as always, food is very good, fresh squeezed margaritas were made fresh without all the sweet n sour, although could have used a tad more tequila for me. Server was good but as with many restaurants now and staff shortages she wasn’t able to be as attentive as the good ole days and I did become parched from running out of margaritas twice. As I said though this is unfortunately becoming more normal now and I don’t blame the server.

The service was friendly, prompt, and courteous from start to finish!

The food was great - at an odd price point for being in a shopping plaza in Euless- i.e. more than one would expect to pay for a restaurant sitting in between an Old Navy and a Forever 21 - but no one left disappointed. We had the crispy chicken sliders and ahi poke plate for appetizers; both were excellent, albeit small-ish in quantity. Our family of six had a variety for dinner:
* Pepperoni and four cheese pizza - My 10 year old said it was great and ate nearly all of it (he's not a big eater, so there's that); crust was thin and nicely toasted - crunchy on the outside and warm and soft within.
* Praised pork ramen - The noodles were WAY down at the bottom of the bowl, but once they were discovered, it was a hit. The pork was tasty and the noodles were done well.
* Ahi poke bowl - While it didn't have as much ahi as expected (about the same amount as the appetizer), it was very tasty and well put together (read: just enough rice and lots of veggies!).
* Pork tacos - Different spices than expected, so not the "street" taco taste we were going for, but good nonetheless. (The black beans on the side were one of two things we weren't thrilled with ... they were meh)
* Pepper bacon cheeseburger - Quite honestly, I am going to assume this tasted good; however, considering my 14-year-old ate it in literally 4 bites, I cannot be sure. ;-)
* Jalapeno pepper jack burger - No complaints on this one, either - tasty and filling, although maybe could use a few more jalapenos?
The folks who had burgers did say the fries were just ok, but considering everything else was well beyond "ok", we will just make a different selections for sides next time!

Service was slow tonight. Our waitress had inside and outside tables. And too many of them. My guess is that they don’t have enough staff. Food was very good.

We love this place and would normally give it 6 stars, but this time we ordered fish tacos and there were literally 2 - 3 tiny nuggets of fish. We told the waitress and she brought us extra fish and made it right.
