Fast friendly staff, good food and they have a nice selection of craft beers. Great place for a business meeting or for a family dinner.

This restaurant is rather nice and has a nice atmosphere where you can find a variety of food and beverages. It's decently located and offers outdoor seating. Service was not the quickest, but otherwise it was a pleasant time.

The Thirsty Lion is a decent bar lounge to go with your friends, family, or coworkers for lunch, brunch, or to watch an average sports game. We were there to watch a college football game early on in the day, so I can't speak for...More
