I ordered a combination plate of brisket, which was very dry, and burnt ends, which were overcooked and thick with a ridiculously sweet bbq sauce I would never have chosen. When the (tiny) baked potato is the best part of your meal, it’s time to close the book on a restaurant.

We had an awesome night at Catalina BBQ. The views were beautiful, the food was delicious, and they had lots of options to choose from. I had a green chile mac n' cheese topped with burnt ends that was amazing. Highly recommend.

A quiet Tuesday evening following the thunderstorms - sat on the beautiful patio despite the remaining puddles and admired the colors as evening fell. Service was fantastic. Sampled most of the BBQ options, sharing with my colleague. Really it was all quite tasty but the burnt-ends stole the show from everything else! Weren't overly crusty, still tender but with amazing flavor! Brisket was quite good, pulled pork pretty good. The smoked chicken was our least favorite - kind of dry. Loved the 3 BBQ sauces they bring for you, with different flavors and heats. The bourbon corn side was yummy but didn't really have any bourbon flavor profile. Beans were QUITE good. And the mescal smoky margarita rocked! I'll be back!

Very average BBQ. Smoke was barely present. Sauces were unremarkable.

The food was good, as usual. I had the carne asada quesadilla which was too greasy this time, but tasty. My husband had his usual pulled pork sandwich which was very good, and his buddy had a burger. The fries and cornbread and muffins were hot and delicious.

I'm really upset at the waitress we had. There was only 4 adults and one child in my party and the waitress had the nerve to add gratuity when it was not a party of 6. That is against the law to do. I had contacted the restraunt on Monday and they did nothing about it. Such a bad experience and the worst service ever. Never will I go here again

Lunch at Catalina was great and, as usual, too much food. John took great care of us and during the latter end of the meal on the patio we were visited by the local roadrunner.

My wife and I had a great meal on the patio as the sun was setting on a Tuesday. We had the Javalina Fries for an appetizer that was so large it could have easily been the whole meal! Followed by entres of burnt ends and brisket sandwich. Both were exceptional. And our wait staff was very helpful and attentive. Contrary to some other reviews I've read our experience was of a resort trying very hard to please us in every way.

The food and service were quite good. The ribs weren't 'falling off the bone', but the dry rub they used had a nice amount of spice and a good flavor. Great appetizers, and a wider variety of menu items than expected.

Great food with some of the best Mac & Cheese and large portions, tasty sauces. Brisket was good as were the BBQ Ribs. Not quite as tasty as our own smoked ribs though.

They allowed us to sit where we wanted and we chose the hopping bar rather than the empty dining room. We realized after ordering that there was only one server (who took orders, made drinks, bussed tables) for the entire crowded bar. She was very kind and bubbly but drinks and food took a very long time. Our order for a second round of drinks was forgotten. The pulled pork sandwich was luke warm. The mac and cheese was hot and delicious.

Excellent barbeque. On the pricey side, but that's to be expected given its location on the Starr Pass Country Club. The salmon was just ok.

Bring back the original tortilla chicken soup! The new version is not very good. Everything else that we ordered was very good: burger, BBQ pork sandwich, etc. John is your best server ever - don't lose him!

Not very good service. Water glasses were empty. No bread served with meal. We were the only people in the whole restaurant yet our food was luke warm. Food was tasty but overpriced, IMO. There was no garnish or bread served with the meat, which was tacky. We were presented with the bill before we had finished eating and were not asked if we cared to order any desert or coffee. Won't be back!

Overall experience was fine but have to complain about portions. They are excessively large. While most people would welcome taking home leftovers we couldn't as we were guests at JW Marriott. We expressed our concern to two people who both said that's what BBQ is by providing larger portions. Unfortunately we felt like we threw a couple of twenty dollar bills in the garbage. We won't be back-sad!

Food was excellent and the service was great!! The patio was perfect even on a summer afternoon!
