Recently had lunch there with my sister from out of town, my 2 daughters and my 3 grandchildren (all under 3). First of all--they were kid friendly, very nice. Little ones LOVED the mac and cheese. The mess was substantial and so was the tip! My sister had the shrimp and grits---she raved and she is from Texas so that is a compliment. One daughter is a big fan of the lobster po'boy and my other daughter had the very good hamburger with fries...all very fresh and tasty. I had the Chinese chicken salad which was very good, nice chunks of roasted moist chicken, crisp veggies and just the right amount of spicy dressing. It was lunch with kids - so we refrained from libations, however I prosed the wine list and it seemed more than adequate.

My whole family loves the place - from the fun décor and extensive bar, to the ice cream and cheesy tater tots. The food is always great. If we are in downtown Tucson, we always stop for a beer and snack - or full lunch. We have not been there in the evening, so I don't know if it has the same "family friendly" vibe. The ice cream list is amazing! It's a great place to visit at the end of any of our downtown outings.

love menu, food & setting.
love menu, food & setting. Only criticism-a bit too quick to remove plates. It is busy & they want to get in as many seatings as possible. When several diners are together and one finishes, waiters rush to remove the setting. One of our guests- said "No" even though she was done because she did not want to feel rushed. Another was waiting to help her husband out and was irritated. The next week another guest also found it annoying & remarked it is her one criticism of the place. It is obviously the consistent approach of the restaurant and just relaxing and waiting for all or most diners to finish before clearing would make it an even better experience.

Second visit and not disappointed
Second visit and not disappointed at all. Great selections on menu. Accomodates vegans. Healthy fresh ingredients. Nice wine and bar selections. Service was friendly and prompt. Took early midweek dinner so not noisy. Would definitely return. Oh, at last but not least the ice cream is to die for!!
Only con: the restaurant is had to get to and finding parking is a problem.

The Hub has been downtown for a little bit now, and I have to say the entire experience is always great. The food is always prepared with great care, and the servers are always willing to fulfill whatever special request you may have. Never a bad moment at the Hub.

Always a Winner
The HUB always provides great food and a wonderful atmosphere. The renovation when they took over the space is perfect. Haven't made it for dinner but I'm sure it's outsanding for that as well. When the weather is nicer, the patio should be great as it's sunken level screens the adjacent parking lot.

Get the Ice Cream
Food was fine, great steak and linguine, but the ice cream was the most memorable.

The Hub is a Tucson Must!
This place gives you good food, amazing ice cream, and exceptional service all while you enjoy the modern industrial and artistic environment.The glory curds are AMAZING, especially with the Hub's special dipping sauce. It's got its own private parking lot which makes this place a great choice for dining.

Fun and great food! We met
Fun and great food! We met old friends there for lunch. They loved it, too! Soups are outstanding!, but the ice cream is over the top delicious! We will bring our out of town families there this summer!

The Hub is always a pleasure to go to. Never once experienced bad food or service.

If you are looking for comfort food, this is the place...a little bit of everything. No one should leave without ice cream..the choices change and there are always some interesting flavors to try!

The menu was diverse enough to feed a 8 year old boy and a teenager with new braces and keep them both smiling (the ice cream finish also helped :-) ) as well as parents and grandparents!

They were very accommodating when I made a large reservation, and also was happy to add additional seats to my party. The food was great and the server was friendly and attentive.
The only issue we had was splitting the check. We let the server know up-front we would need separate checks. She told us, for parties larger than 8, they generally don't split the check. However, as long as we were a little patient at the end, and since there were couples/groups and not 13 separate checks, she would split the bill for us. She was very nice about it, but it made me wonder why the restaurant lists itself as "Good for groups."

out of town family visit
I brought my out of town family here for lunch and they were blown away. Food was great! Our server, who was the daytime bartender, was outstanding, very warm and welcoming. From the ambiance to the food, my relatives start to their Tucson visit started out great.

Lunch with the ladies
Five other ladies and I celebrated my birthday at the Hub, and everyone of them enjoyed the experience. A few had not been there and wanted to take their husbands back to it , either for lunch or dinner. They all had salads , which everyone loved them. I had the cheeseburger and it was perfect, not to mention I had to share my tater tots as those were a big hit. We all saved room for dessert and had some ice cream, all different flavors and each one liked them ALL.

Had lunch with my parents while in town. Dad loves microbreweries, mom loves a nice made sandwich and I wanted a real salad (not just leaves with crutons) so I picked The Hub; which they had never been to. Everything was great; especially the appetizer. The cheese curds were fabulous, but they have always been my favorite ... not greasy or oily like midwest ones, rather very lightly battered and flavorful. We all got beer and different types and they were all good. Of corse, the ice cream was a great way to finish off our meal. We had a great lunch out!
