The food was outstanding! I had the salmon and my husband had the ribs. I recommend both dishes. The service was good and our server was friendly. My only complaint was the music level. We couldn’t hear the server or each other.
We enjoying going Mon-Thurs when the band/dj is not there because it's quieter and more enjoyable. They have a simple but good kids menu but it doesn't include their drinks ;-( The food was yummy, we split the nachos and a burger and there was more than enough. Our favorite part are the games to play as a family. We sat in the patio and the heaters were on and just right.
I used Open Table to find more places for happy hour. The happy hour was just 20% off drinks, so not a lot. The food was really good and so was the service. We plan to go back for dinner again soon.
This is a wonderful place to sit, relax, eat and drink with friends and family. Second time here; sat out in the patio with a fire pit to stay warm and comfy. Our servers and other staff were attentive, not overbearing, very personable and fun to chat with. I cannot express how much I love the Brussel sprouts appetizer. My favorite so far. The drinks are amazing but priced kind of high. Otherwise, I like it! Great treat ....
Amazing! I will most definitely be eating here again very soon!
Food and service were awesome! The music was a little too loud for our taste.
Spicy brussels are back! Salad was fresh, service was good, as always.
The curry is delicious. Added a sliced chicken breast on top. Perfection. Our server was friendly and cheerful. The restaurant is spacious and casual. My favorite restaurant in Tucson.
We have been here before and we have had great experience and bad this was a wonderful experience. The have taken all the efforts to make sure the guest are safe and healthy.
When we first went in the music was very loud, took us by surprise, but as we sat there it actually wasn’t bad. We ordered an appetizer but we saw it went to the wrong table but they had to take it back and get re made by the time it got remade our meals were coming out. We didn’t even say anything and the server already said she would comp it. I had the fish and chips best I have found in AZ tasted like we were on the coast of California. My wife got the French dip also very very tasty well flavored. Also got free dessert for a birthday. Peanut butter brownie dessert 12 out of 10!!! It was THAT good.
Will go again
Amazing as always! Great food and excellent service.
Great staff and fun environment. Great spot for a cocktail on the weekend.
We had a great time celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The service was great and everyone loved their lunch choices. The birthday dessert was awesome!!
Despite it being restricted we had a ball on New Year’s Eve with a live DJ! Amazing food and drinks! We can’t wait to go back for another date night and try out that ping pong table!
A good place for a casual hangout with friends. The outdoor seating is more indoor with an exposed wall. There are games to play like ping pong and corn hole. Their cocktails were not as elevated as they sounded, giving off more of a college bar vibe/taste rather than complex. The food was delicious.
I always have a great experience here! Everything on the menu is excellent-high quality ingredients and delicious food especially the soft pretzels-the best you'll ever have! The turkey pastrami was moist and delicious! Highly recommended Culinary Dropout for date night or a get together!
Phenomenal restaurant. Staff was outstanding and food was great.
The staff was great. Very attentive and they let us hang out and chat. The food is over priced.
The food was outstanding!! I had prime rib dip and my husband had the ribs which were probably some of the best ribs we’ve ever had. I am 100% likely to return.
Our first time in Tucson and it was amazing food and service!!
The breaded chicken was ok. Not as flavorful, and the mashed potatoes seemed a tad bland. But I have had other food of theirs that was good, just not this particular food (unfortunately).
We made the reservation because they would allow our pup on the patio. It was great!! The food, ambiance and servers were professional.
Wonderful service and wonderful food
Food was very tasty. Worth enduring hawkish mask policies...
Great food portions and good spacing. Very friendly environment.
I was denied ordering a drink on my 21st birthday because my ID was not a "texture or state they were familiar with". It was a humiliating experience and we left immediately.
Great dinner. Tried new items.
We got seated and no one came to the table to even offer water. I went to the host stand to notify her of the lack of service and she did nothing about it. We left after 15 minutes of sitting there and no one helping us. Usually I have great service here, highly disappointed especially during COVID when the restaurant already has less guests.
my granddaughter chose this for her 16th birthday ...excellent choice . plus they treated her to a large birthday bowl of ice cream . we ordered the prime rib french dip (delicious ) and the burger ( excellent as well ). we did order the pretzels and cheese fondue for an appetizer.. very good , would order again and share a main course . we both had to to go bags . no complaints , will return again
Thank you, was tasty food. Nice service. I recommend going again to try the rest of the menu.
Overpriced food, flavor is not there. This place is over hyped for what it is.
It was all great! The DJ musics was a bit too loud but all good otherwise
Food , dinner & desert was great. Felt safe eating there.
Very good. They had run out of salmon, but our second choice was great!
Great night out for some craft cocktails and dinner at a fire pit table. The kale salad and vegan curry were both very tasty!
Great places to have drinks and dinner with friends
Fun especially for a group or a date! Salmon was amazing, goes well with a mule! The candy bar dessert was also to die for!!
