This is our favorite restaurant to go to for dinner in downtown. You can sit inside for anything from a quiet conversation or sit at the bar to catch up with old friends and watch the game. Outside seating you can people watch all the interesting people of Tucson. The menu offers selections from the tight budget to the money to burn and all of it is tasty.

Tasty, but most orders blundered.

One drink came with water instead of soda. Another came with lemons instead of limes. Salad had dressing when requested on the side. A sandwich was missing a component. Our very sweet waiter had the orders correct...he read them back to us. Problem at the bar and in the kitchen. Ridiculous! Your place is cool, but get it together, Guys!

Visiting University of Arizona and made reservations based on Yelp reviews. It was a delicious meal. Great ambiance with a fun atmosphere. Excellent service and the food was excellent. Lobster Mac and cheese was yummy. Great Cobb salad . Try the brisket and cheese fries and fried cheese curds. No room for ice cream!! Will be back for sure!!!

Great service!
Limited menu, but every time we’ve dine at the Hub, it’s been absolutely deliciously scrumptious !
It’s one of our favorite restaurants downtown!

HUB is another wonderful option for downtown dining! Pleases us that old buildings are being renovated rather than torn down. We will be back soon to try other selections from their varied and interesting menu. I enjoyed my steak salad and friend said salmon burger was delish. Service was efficient without being hurried. Good solid food, great decor, and attentive service.

The 4 people in our party each ordered something different. All 4 meals were very good: the Shepherds pie, Cubano sandwich, lobster mac/cheese, fried catfish.
The server was extremely pleasant. Attentive, but not intrusive. This was our first visit, but we'll definitely go back.

Not a fan . The chicken wings were raw inside. The manager insisted it was veins in the chicken however I eat wings all the time and these were raw. The lighting was poor so I couldn't tell until after I took a few bites and felt the texture and then my daughter put her flashlight from her phone in it and then I was sure. I had the special fish dish which was terrible. My husband and daughter had the salmon which they felt was not good st all. My other daughter who is s student st the university and recommended this place was happy with her choice which was a salad with salmon on top. Will take this place off my list !!

This was my second visit in a matter of days. Food is okay, but not great or exceptional for the price. I was surprised that the ice cream (which was very good) was served in a paper cup with plastic spoons inside the restaurant, like a fast food joint. It was just weird.

We went during their grand "re-opening" weekend. It is a very modern and inviting space and the staff are all eager to ensure that you have a fun and tasty meal. Try the cheese curds appetizer- it is ridiculously good! Entree portions are large- two of the three of us took home leftovers. We also thoroughly enjoyed the unique ice cream flavors. Several contain booze, but all are well labeled. We don't live in the area, but if we return to Tucson we will definitely go back! There is also a freestanding ice cream shop right across the street for anyone who just wants a scoop without a full meal.

This restaurant is normally quite good. Unfortunately they are renovating and have temporarily changed locations (which was not noted on Open Table). At this temporary location they have a very limited menu. The temporary location is really more of a bar than a restaurant. Once they get back into their regular location, I will be happy to go back.

Fantastic welcoming & ambiance but then our server ignored us :0 LUCKILY another server noticed & came over to take our drink order. She then apologized for him when he continued to avoid eye contact - with all 5 of us!?! I have no idea what his problem was!?! I wish I could give the name of our "savior" server but I forgot it :/ She was awesome though & graciously turned what could've been a bad first experience into a great one! We were celebrating Father's Day & our (adult) kids suggested this place raving about the Mac & Cheese which was definitely the best!

We are vacationing in Tucson, and the HUB came highly recommended. The Open Table reservation system did not so availability until 10:45 PM, so we talked about slot and showed up about 10 minutes early only to be told about the hostess that they could've taken us an hour and a half sooner if we would've called them personally. That is unfortunate as we spent extra time walking up and down the street waiting on our reservation time. 🙄 For our dinners we ordered the Seabass special and the chicken pot pie. The chicken pot pie boasted that it was chock full of fresh vegetables and tender chicken along with tons of flavor reminiscent of the south. It was actually full of mostly red potato chunks too large to eat without using a knife and very bland, too thick gravy for any pot pie I'd truly enjoy. The crust was not buttery and flavorful either. It lacked saltiness and was not browned or flaky either. My companion's Sea bass had to be returned as it was so over cooked that we could not cut through the flesh of the fish. We have ordered LOTS of sea bass over the years, but never any too tough to eat. The waitress did take it off the tab and offer free ice cream since it was so late. But, it took ten solid minutes of vigilant looking to get her to our table. No manager ever stopped by and I was genuinely surprised by this. I would like to. It's that a gentleman next to me also had a pot pie, and I noticed he had pulled a large amount of red potatoes out of his crock as well. Maybe they should rethink the pot pie vegetables. Carrots and peas would be awesome with smaller potatoes.

My wife & I went to the Hub on Valentin's Day. We were seated at a lovely table in the front corner of the restaurant next to the window at the front where we could watch the people and traffic passing by on the street without the noise. The service was impeccable and the menu chooses were extensive, including vegetarian dishes which we ordered. The wine that was recommended to us was superb. The entrees we ordered were delicious with generous portions and moderately priced. My wife had the vegetarian pot pie which was huge. I ordered the baked vegetarian pasta, an equally large portion. For desert we enjoyed 3-flavors of vegan ice cream. They gave us a free sample of their flavors to help us make our choices. We loved all 3 so they gave us a portion of all 3 equalling 2-scoops. It was delicious and refreshing. All-in-all it was a delightful dining experience. I would recommend the Hub to all may friends. We've been there several times and have never been disappointed.

We had the hokey pokey flavor of ice cream for dessert, and that made some previous poor experience with the Hostess fade into the back ground. The server was wonderful, the Hostess was exceptionally rude, the roasted corn salad was fantastic, and the ice cream was heavenly.

We have been eating at the HUB for years before attending the AZ Theatre Co. and will continue to do so for the good food and service and for its location within walking distance of the theatre. Of course, the ice cream is an added incentive!

Great food, friendly service. My only negative is that this is the third time I've been to HUB (my second time for lunch) and every time it takes over 2 hours so service is pretty slow. Very friendly, very good, and worth the wait, but it's important to note that this is *not* a place to grab a quick bite. The ice cream is amazing, too.

The food was great, but it took 40 minutes to get our order and it made us late getting back to our conference. We even had reservations, so we didn't have to wait for a table. I didn't feel like our server had our back and was aware of how long our food was taking. Everybody raved about our food, though. The place was extremely busy.
