Diner Reviews
  • "Restaurant is nice with a great view of the golf course. The barbecue is really delicious. Would highly recommend the wait staff write the orders down as it's easy to forget a thing or two or mix stuff up which happened, of course. Overall good quality though;-)"

  • "The brisket can be hit-and-miss: sometimes moist, sometimes dry. This time, it was a bit dry, but very flavorful. The chef was nice enough to send a sample out before I ordered - classy! The pulled pork was really good, too. Too bad we're always too full for dessert. Love the gratis cornbread and biscuits. "

  • "Best pulled pork ever. Nice amount of smoke. Tasty sauce. But, more uniquely, a very nice crispy outside to many pieces. Yum! Yum!! We'll be back"

  • "The food is outstanding! The mac and cheese is the best in town! The wings are also amazing!"

  • "Couldn't ask for better service and food! As well as a nice scenic view!"
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "The chicken tortilla soup and the pickles that come with the burgers and sandwiches cannot be beat anywhere! And while their sweet potato fries are always good, they were extra crispy this time, and totally delicious."

  • "How could you not have a good dining experience in a Marriott owned and operated restaurant? This upscale (without being snooty) restaurant has an exemplary barbecue menu. The portions are very generous (we took enough home to have two additional meals(which justifies the cost). The staff are accommodating and unhurried in making recommendations and describing the fare accurately. The Assistant Supervisor, Richard, was attentive but not overbearing. The view of the golf course in the fading sunset as it reflected on the landscape was peaceful. Diners outside and in seemed to enjoy the ambiance and this was finished off by the warm and inviting fireplace near our table."

  • "I had the ribs. They were outstanding! I am from Chicago and have had my share of ribs but these were the best I have ever eaten. Cannot wait to bring our out of town guests here!"

  • "This place has ranked in the top three in the Kansas City BBQ contest and it shows!!! Excellent food !!"

  • "Outstanding baby back ribs with three tasty sauces and home-made potato chips. Our go-to place in Tucson for ribs. Incredible setting on the ninth whole of the Marriott's golf course."

  • "We enjoy sitting on the outdoor patio and watching the golfers as they come by. Very relaxing and pleasant."
    Dined on 5/27/2013
  • "The Catalina Barbeque Co. is our go-to place in Tucson for ribs. The ribs are meaty and tender and come with three sauces--we prefer the spiciest. The patio dining area has a spectacular view of the golf course and desert hills. It would be a particularly nice place to take out of town guests. Our server was friendly and efficient. Not the least expensive rib place in town but surely the best location!"

  • "I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars because the decor and food don't go well together; however, both were great! Obviously, this is a BBQ restaurant, so you'd expect a casual atmosphere; in actuality, it was a pretty, dark, and upscale. The food and service were outstanding; our server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and outgoing. We've lived in Tucson for almost 44 years and this is the BEST BBQ we've had in town. If you like Burnt Ends, they don't get much better than this, and their ribs are delicious! It's pricey, but we will definitely return."
    Dined on 4/13/2013
  • "The muffins and biscuits were warm this time, and the pulled pork sandwich was really good. Hamburgers were very good, as usual. The French fries really tasted like potatoes (most do not) and the sweet potato fries were also excellent. Someday I'll have to make room to try out the desserts."
    Dined on 4/8/2013
  • "We will definitely be back..this is a classy eating establishment, from the food quality to the service. I recommend sitting outside if it's nice, since there are great views of the golf course. We were able to talk, too; it was quiet."

  • "Great service, great view, great food. What else is there to say."

  • "Side dishes we had-Loaded potatoe salad,Mac and cheese were somewhat bland. BBQ was good but Prime Rib cut on "special" was tough"
    Dined on 3/31/2013
  • "Great breakfast burritos, and a very good brisket sandwich (brisket everywhere is hit-and-miss, but this time it was really good)."
    Dined on 3/5/2013
  • "The brisket and ribs are hit-and-miss, but the salads, cornbread, biscuits, pickles, burger, and soup are always terrific."
    Dined on 2/2/2013
  • "This a very nice place to stop for a reasonably priced meal. The decor is very plain but it is comfortable. The barbecue items were all very good. One comment on the meatloaf entre was that it was the best they ever had. The baby back ribs were fall off the bone tender and very tasty. We would definitely return if we are in this area again."

  • "Excellent barbecue and friendly service. Brisket sandwich excellent."
    Dined on 1/9/2013
  • "Not many restaurants that are located in golf course clubhouses can compare with this place. Great food, drinks, and service. Technically a "sports" bar but food is way above the quality of other sports bars. If you are in the area this is a sure don't miss."

  • "This was my second time coming and both times I received great service and even better food! I will definitely come back again and recommend it to my friends."
    Dined on 11/26/2012
  • "This place is hit-or-miss: sometimes it's really, really good, and sometimes it's just okay. Hamburgers are more consistent than the brisket and ribs, which sometimes are dry but sometimes are great. The spicy pickles are always outstanding, and along with the cornbread and biscuits, are worth the meal."

  • "Best BBQ ribs & pulled pork in Az.! Sides are excellent also. Nice views of mtns. & golf course too. Just a great place to relax and enjoy the best BBQ in Az..."

  • "My wife and I ate here with some friends on a Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised by the outdoor seating and view it had to offer. Food was great and had a variety of great choices. We all oredered somthing different and were all pleased with our food. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Food was awesome, but the place seemed terribly short-staffed. Evident they were just waiting to increase staff until the snow-birds arrived from up north."
    Dined on 9/30/2012
  • "We enjoyed the food, service and ambiance, however it would have been nice to have a vegetable or salad choice that came with the meal. The meat was tender and delicious and the mac and cheese was yummy."
    Dined on 9/1/2012
  • "The BBQ pulled pork is amazing - the best we've had! Enjoyed the creamed corn as well."
    Dined on 9/1/2012
  • "We've never been disapointed in Catalina Bargeque Co. & Sports Bar. The barbequed items and sauces are exceptional. A great find!"
    Dined on 8/8/2012
  • "Great atmosphere and excellent food, the best BBQ I've had in the city - It equals any BBQ I've eaten in my wife's home town of San Antonio, TX. It is also the most expensive BBQ I've ever eaten, $63 total for dinner and a drink each for two people, about double what I would expect from past experiences here and in San Antonio. I assume this is due to the restaurant's location in a swanky golf resort. I'll definitely go back for more, but, due to the price, it won't be a weekly visit"

  • "Best BBQ in Tucson! Wonderful service and wonderful food! Pulled Pork Tacos, yummy!"

  • "The only time we get the service and quality of food as we did last night, is when we go on cruises. Everything is always outstanding at your restaurant."
    Dined on 7/10/2012
  • "Imagine this. We drive 40 minutes to a Tucson resort just to eat barbeque. But it is outstanding. These guys do competitive barbecueing. The one mistake I made this time was to show up at 6:30PM on Fathers Day and they were out of brisket. So we made do with excellent pulled pork and smoked links. And they pay attention to the sides. They have a few good microbrews on tap including one that Thunder Canyon brews just for them. I prefer ales but my wife likes it. Its a great outside location and the staff is very accomodating. They go out of their way to show their appreciation for locals taking the time to drive up there in the off season."

  • "Nice casual restaurant with good service and view. Wish there had been more on the menu that was not so spicy. Some people can't eat spicy food."

  • "Setting was great, food was good, but 2 hours to eat was a bit extreme, we waited 15 minutes for our beverages and 30 minutes for our check."

  • "Catalina is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. I recommend the pulled pork sandwich and the Catalina wings. The staff, especially Brit, Kevin, and Pedro take such good care of the customers, you feel like part of the Catalina family!"
