I have been visiting Crystal Mountain since before there was a Thistle. When first opened, Thistle was an amazing place to have a meal, grab a brew, or just stop in for an appetizer. Now, not so much. Unless one wants to purchase ingredients, prep...More

Started off not so well. Waited over 10 minutes for a server, she was swamped and 4 others just walking around.

We found the atmosphere cozy but the menu very limiting. My veggie burger was OK. My husband did enjoy his fish dish. They has a nice wine menu. Our waiter failed to tell us about the special.
