About Thunderbird Restaurant and Bar

Thunderbird is very literally the new kid on the block in Fountain Square, just south of the namesake fountain. This place is mostly all about the booze, with a small menu of inexpensive plates and sandwiches (most around $10), like a giant grilled cheese or fried chicken sandwich. Servers say that the most popular cocktail is the Slapped Actress, a bright and citrusy mixture that has a ton of bite without the tooth-melting sweetness you might expect of something so heavy on the lemon. Head down there before a nearby show, but expect to throw some ‘bows for a table, because this place has been packed from the day it opened it’s doors this year.
