McMahon's Prime Steakhouse
A personal touchSince it is much closer, has a greater variety of dishes, and is less expensive, we go almost weekly to Metro Grill with friends. However, for a special, though infrequent and quiet dinner, it is nice to go to McMahon's for its excellent steaks. The steaks were cooked perfectly! What was unique about this visit was a personal call from the restaurant to ask how our experience was. I think this was directly from the manager (not sure as I was so surprised to get a call at all)! This to me shows a level of caring about the customers that is rare these days. Thank you.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat timeWe came to the steakhouse to celebrate both my birthday and the 30 year anniversary of our meeting.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

After dinner we went to to the Cigar lounge. The Band (Trade Secrets) was severely lacking. The instrumentals were good but their singers severely need work.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday dinnerPrime rib was over cooked; we ordered meedium rare, we had medium well. Service was, as always, impeccable. Sides and salads were outstanding.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMcMahon's Prime SteakhouseMcMahon's Prime Steakhouse was so wonderful, the steak is amazing and the McMahon's potatoes delicious could have had a second helping :) and fried strawberries for dessert topped of a fabulous meal.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial night outThe restaurant was pretty quite but it was a Sunday night, we had a choice of piano bar or dining room, we choose dining room. There were people in both areas but not very busy. Cocktail, appetizer of escargot was wonderful. Service was attentive, meal was delicious, Miller's Petite Filet and Hanger Steak, very flavorful and cooked well. Extensive wine list, great dessert.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe went for Mother's Day, later in the day, so it was quiet, and we had excellent service. We just recently "found" this restaurant and will surely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have dined here before,I have dined here before, but tonight was the first time that we had problems with the food. We ordered oysters, and were told they had arrived not up to their standards, the steaks we ordered were charred black on the outside, cold on the inside.. obviously thrown onto a hot fire quickly. Took a long time to get served, and the server kept coming back to tell us that what we ordered wasn't available anymore. I think they had real issues in the kitchen.
The other thing I noticed was the price of their drinks. I understand an "uncorking fee" but when one glass is the price of one bottle, well.. a bit much. Overall it was a good meal, but when you pay higher prices, you expect more than a good meal.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food ,great experienceVery pleasant place, did not know I would fine such a fine restaurant in Tucson.the food was excellent ,the stake tender and juice ,the side order wonderful ,can't wait to make the roasted tomatoes at home!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had 9pm reservations, afterWe had 9pm reservations, after our son had three ceremonies at Arizona University.

Our dinner was exceptional and our steak was cooked to perfection.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTried the salmon it was goodTried the salmon it was good but not on par with the ribeye steaks.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationI took my bride of 42 years to McMahons, which is one of our favorite places. In this day where restaurants rush you out the door and you can't converse across the table, this place offers great service but if you want to take your time, they let you. We sat in the piano bar area which offered a little something special. The wine list is the best in Tucson by far.
They offered a special non-menu lobster tails, two for less than $40, and the rib-eye was wonderful. Two sides are part of the entree selection so they don't hit you with ala carte prices. Everything went as planned for this special night, including a chocolate mousse desert given to us to celebrate our special day.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe filet mignon was excellent!The filet mignon was excellent! I ordered it medium well. Cooked to perfection, and practically melted in my mouth.

It had been remodeled since we had been there and it was beautiful.
Our waiter was outstanding as were all of the employees we encountered. They were friendly and attentitive without 'hovering' too much if you know what I mean.
Our dinners were delicious--and we couldn't believe the size portions they gave us! It was just my husband and myself, but the amount of servings could have fed 4. So- we had 5 star leftovers!
I'm honestly not exagerating, the dining is superb and I know you will not be disappointed should you choose to dine there.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
