Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill – Washington Square Ratings and Reviews
I was in town for a job interview, and my daughter met me in Beaverton for a couple of days. We chose the Thirsty Lion after looking on Yelp, and checking out the menu. We were certainly not disappointed! Excellent all around, food, service and atmosphere!
Hoping I get the job, so I can eat here more often!
This was our first and last time going here. Had to wait over 10 minutes after being seated to get even be acknowledge by our waitress. Took another 15 minutes to even get our drinks. We asked that they turn the heating lamps on since it was cold outside and getting dark. They turned it off 20 minutes later without explanation. Food arrived after 40 minutes which may be normal for them but not typical by restaurant standards given that they weren't that busy. No apology for delay, just food delivered by two different waitress (but not on our own). Salad was soggy and I tasted something grainy/gritty but couldn't tell what it was since it was so dark outside. Hamburger was barely warm but chard on the outside. Our waitress never came back to ask us how our meal was or even to offer a refill on our drinks until the end when we asked for the check. Overall, this place was disappointing and overrated.
Food was good. Thai salad was a little over dressed but not drowning the salad. Chicken sandwich was very good, just not sure why this time of year serving anemic tomatoes. Server was not as attentive as most we have had the many times we have been here but was adequate
Twice now I've made a reservation, showed up a few minutes early, and then ended up waiting until 15 minutes after my reservation to be seated. What's the point of a reservation if they don't seat you? Not impressed. I ordered their pizza, and the cheese was not fully melted, and it tasted bland. Meh. Their location is central for my friends, and me, but I don't think we'll be returning.
Burgers were fantastic. Beers were cold. Bar was hopping and great outdoor seating. It is busyband loud but that gives the restaurant energy. One weird thing though! When you get your bill you see a SERVICE FEE charge?! It was only 1.27 I think but I thought what the heck! I asked the server and she explained it was a fee they added because minimum wage went up. I thought I would rather they just raise the prices rather than charge a SERVICE FEE. I feel it's rather strange. That being said the food is great!
This restaurant offers a lovely variety of options to meet the needs of every diner - from the gourmet to the burger lover - and every dish is exceptionally prepared. We love to bring friends here for special occasions - it is our go-to neighborhood restaurant. Great friendly service!
Everyone at the table ordered fish (cod) and chips. Our young grandson did too. We ended up with part cod and part calamari. We do not eat calamari and it ruined our dining experience to bite down on "rubber.". My daughter couldn't eat anything after that. She was charged for a salad she had ordered that she didn't eat because it came after the fish. I ordered an artichoke. The waitress was very nice. The manager came over and said it was just an error. She Took my new order and removed the original fish and chips from our ticket. Charged us for everything else. Even though my daughter was grossed out and I settled for an artichoke. I thought she'd Comp the artichoke since we all had calamari on our plates. My grandson got a new plate of cod. He almost wasn't going to eat at all either, but he ate a few bites. To us that "mistake" was gross. Anyway, that WAS our favorite place for fish and chips, but I'm not sure we will return. At least not to the Washington Square Location. I feel the problem was basically our problem to reorder or not eat at all and still get charged. The manager didn't take responsibility to make sure we were happy customers. We seldom eat any meat, and this was a rare outing for fish. Ruined.
Wow. We've been to TL many times and it's a busy, popular place so it can be hit or miss on both food and service but the staff is so great that it is always worth it; but NOT THIS TIME. The place was NOT crowded. It took over 45 minutes to get our food and ALL of the orders were cold. Only one in our party complained (the rest were so hungry we just ate it) and the manager took it off of our bill which was great. Since this was a birthday celebration they were generous enough to bring a free dessert to the birthday girl but it took another 30 minutes for it to get there. So, dinner took way longer than normal and pretty much messed up the rest of the evenings plans. Hate to leave a negative review but this time it was really bad.
