the title says it all. This spot has a lot of potential but new management is a must if they want to progress. There are so many clashing themes in this establishment that it's almost sad. The food is average but it's a good place for a drink with customers at the end of a night.

Good place to go and grab a bite to eat. Not a must see when you plan your trip but is not that expensive.

This great "local" spot has a wide variety of choices. From wings to pizza, the food is good. But their burgers and fries are AMAZING. Plus, during the off-season, they have weekday burger specials. I just had the Bubba burger and it was perfect. Cheddar cheese, onion straws and on a pretzel roll. It was really good. A fun, bright... More

Thirsty Pony has been a hit or miss for me. I have been in both slow and busy times and there are times it is adequately staffed and other times it takes 10-15 minutes before a server came by to even grab drink orders. The food is usually very good but everything is very pricy for what you get.

Great Sandwich. This place had horse racing, gambling, bowling alley. From the looks of their specialty drinks were an attraction in and of itself. Excellent service. Lots of televisions for watching sports. I will be back.

Not a chain and not a celebrity chef over priced burger joint. This place has a fun vibe and the best burger ever. Try the Bam Burger! Lots to do and great place to take the kids attached to water park, arcade, lazer tag and bowling. Really cool drink menu too with lots of quirky souvenirs. We took home a... More

This is a fun place to go. There is bowling, an arcade, track betting or just getting a bite to eat and something to drink. They also have daily food and drink specials.

It was kind of late, everything was either closed or closing, but I wanted a drink and wanted something solid to eat. Thankfully, I ran into this place, on the way to Cedar Point. It looked like a lively place from the outside so it was calling us. I was able to catch up on the games that were happening,... More
