Take home a memory


A Review From a Pony Fan!

When someone mentions the Thirsty Pony to me, I don’t just think of great drinks, an attached bowling alley or horse racing.

The atmosphere is casual and inviting and the staff make us feel like they’ve known us for years. Although the Pony is a hot spot for horse racing and late-night gatherings, it’s also a great family-friendly restaurant.

Appetizers like Traditional Onion Rings, Hand-cut French Fries, Mozzaluna (a jazzed up version of mozzarella sticks) with marinara, Homemade Potato Chips, Sweet Potato Fries with a sweet brown sugar dipping sauce, Lobster Bisque and Frickin’ Chicken Wings are just the beginning.

Entrees include perch, walleye, shrimp, sirloin, ribs, salads, wraps and a selection of Gourmet Burgers like the Goopy Cheeseburger, the M&M Burger, the Chili Cheeseburger and the Cluck-Cluck Burger. Create Your Own Pizzas are anything but traditional. The Thirsty Pony even has a Little Pony children’s menu for the kids.

Afterwards, you can follow up with a  game of bowling and laser tag at Cedar Lanes.

You can’t go wrong with the Pony. The service is quick but never sloppy and prices won’t break the bank. Bon Appétit!

— Pony Cares! —


The Thirsty Pony hosts the annual Polar Plunge to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics.  We are proud to be a part of this great organization.

Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability.

Special Olympics is helping to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place — one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.

Special Olympics Mission: “The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”

The Thirsty Pony is proud to support the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

ALSF is changing the lives of children with cancer by funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.

Since Alex set up her first lemonade stand in 2000—truly exemplifying the saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”— ALSF has raised more than $150 million!

ALSF’s Mission: To change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.

The Thirsty Pony is proud to support Perry and Keenan Fraylick who are cycling across America to raise money for pediatric cancer. Their initial goal was $10,000 but were able to raise $11,000!  Over 5 weeks of research will be funded with these donations. As they trek across the country, they hope to spread awareness about childhood cancer with our travels. More importantly, they strive to inspire children that are battling cancer & give them the hope & opportunities to follow in their footsteps. No child should be spending their childhood in hospitals, away from friends, school & play. Additionally, no parent should endure the financial strain that follows & should be focused on one thing: their child.
By donating to ALSF Kicking It Across America, you will be directly assisting over 800 different research programs & supporting families, & empowering everyone to help cure pediatric cancer! Every $400 donated will fund one day of research & $2,000 funds a whole week.
