A fairly nice place for casual dining. We stopped here for a quick snack. The service was good and the quality of the meal was quite good.

Restaurant is not very big. Menu is not very big, regular bar food. Food was just average, nothing special. Bar area is fun and friendly. Kind of dark inside as well.More

In the past several months Thirstys has added several new items. Since everything is excellent, just go and try them. My current favorite at lunch is the lightly fried cod sandwich on a nice long roll. Thick, not greasy and yet light.

Yes, and it's very good. What you'd expect, as a lot of their food is, from a fancier place, if not big-time steakhouse quality. Certainly worth the money.
