We were visiting Cedar Point with four teens and the Thirsty Pony was a natural choice. Large serving sizes with a lot of different choices. Fun atmosphere. Quick service.

We always make the Thirsty Pony a stop for dinner when we are in Sandusky! We were in town to go to Great Wolf Lodge, and the Thirsty Pony is the perfect stop for our family of 5 after a day in the water park!...More

Always very crowded right after the park closes. The closing times depend on the crowd. Good selection of beers. Great wings. Service is so so. I went here as it was right across from the hotel I was staying at.

This was a convenient post-wedding reception visit. Prices were good, good bar service, good jukebox. We did not have any munchies so this review is based on bar atmosphere alone. Maybe a little too well lit for Saturday at midnight but I would still recommend...More
