Thirsty Restaurant has been a local restaurant for many years. The staff is very friendly and have worked there for years. The atmosphere is very casual. The menu has a variety of food selections and priced reasonably. The food is average and presentation is straight forward. Limited hours of operation.

We were taken here while in town by a family member. Its a small family style eatery and the food was fantastic. All the waitresses were very friendly and quite attentive. I would definitely recommend it. They have specials that change all the time.

I have not been here in years but this place has been here since the beginning of time. I think most of the customers have been going here for multiple decades. I can't believe they are still open because most of their customers are "aging". I remember the food being good but the reason I stopped going there was that... More

Great local restaurant. Any local restaurant that stays in business for 30 years is quite an accomplishment... and it is deserved. Very tasty food, lots of options, great service by friendly people. We will be sure to visit whenever we get to Cape Coral.

The best kept secret by Cape Locals for cheap eats! Daily dinner specials can't be beat. The Cod and Shrimp Special is a favorite and the price is very reasonable.
