So great I’m headed back tomorrow!!! What San amazing place to gather drink and eat! Try it- you’ll love it too!
Was very excited to try somewhere new. Unfortunately will not be back. Cold food, our waitress was slow, dis not have a great table side manner, her service was poor. She could not get away from our table quick enough, like she did not want to be there. We had to ask for multiple refills and then we’re forgotten about when it came to those refills.
Well worth the hype. I went in expected to be disappointed (I often am by the popular, hip restaurants), but CD delivered with high quality food. Everything we ordered was delicious. I'm looking forward to planning another visit soon!
Super fun to watch a game, great food and fun games!
Over all good but the food could have been hotter when it came out. They were so busy and the waiter was running around we just ate it as it was

Service was very slow but the food was good a bit expensive for what you get.

The food is terrific. The service iffy. I would blame it on the pandemic but it's always seemed that way. Very congenial staff but seem overworked and things are pretty slow. Also, I'm an old coot and I don't find the atmosphere comfortable. I repeat, the food is terrific and that's what brings me back.

Had a reservation and we were started immediately. Food were good and the staffs were kind and nice. Make sure you get the dessert monkey breads. They are so delicious!
Great food and great service
we enjoyed the ribs and korean skirt steak was excellent
This is a great, modern location for both fine dining as well as casual. The food is consistently good. A definite must try if you've never been. I've had the onion rings, butternut squash lasagna, Korean steak, and fish and chips- all delicious
The overall experience was amazing, the food was great and staff was very accommodating. There was a party next to where we were eating and they were what brought the experience down but take that away and everything was 10/10.
Birthday was great!! We all had a great time
Our kids had a blast playing and overall everything was great! Thank you
Great place to watch sports or (based on observing crowd)… get a group of friends together for food and drinks. Casual, can be a bit noisy. Patio area heated with lots of Screens, foosball, ping pong, corn hole, even gas fire tables. Food is good for price paid. Ribs really really good! Good concept for a bit more than your typical fast casual restaurant.
Great place, just wish the service was better. Had to eat my food with my own hands

Awesome as usual! Great food and awesome atmosphere. If you haven't checked it out yet, get over there.
Go to restaurant for good tasting solid food and great atmosphere. Would recommend reservations on weekends. Only recurring disappointing dish is the soup. I've ordered it twice and both times it has been luke warm. Everything else has been good.
Great service, food was quick and tasty. Forgot what a fun place this is
It was cold until the heater was turned on. Not the atmosphere I was expecting. Good was very good.

Didn’t dine there. The music blew out the speakers in my hearing aids (almost) and the “outdoor” area was really indoors. Sorry to say that this is not a place for a mature person who’s trying to avoid catching Covid-19 would want to patronize.

Excellent food. Sat on the patio in the couch/fire pit section. The waitstaff was attentive and very good. Played ping pong, which is always fun.
Not particularly busy in a Wednesday evening. Short wait for a reserved table but not bad. Service was good, food was good, cocktails are a bit overwrought.
Food was good. Ribs were tasty but not hot, fish and chips- excellent! The wine list needs work. Definitely not a wine place. If you want a drink, order a beer or cocktail.
It was too loud. Couldn’t hear people at my table, this was due to the music

Was very happy with the overall visit, we always love bringing family or friends to Culinary Dropout for the first time. Last night's server was Korney, what a friendly kid, always checking on us. Knew it was my husband's birthday and brought enough spoons for
Good I’m a regular
We spent new years’s eve there, and had our desert during the countdown. Music was a bit too loud more like a club. It was a fun place.
Awesome service on New Year’s Eve! DJ was a nice touch. Thank you!!
Fun, glad we went.
The service was terrible. The food took a long time. We hardly saw the server, the chairs are uncomfortable and awkward especially if you want to hang your purse. We asked several people to send over the server and she came only to bring the bill way after we finished eating. My daughter got the fish and chips and there was no lemon with it. She had to eat it like that as the server never came back yo ask if we needed anything. Our water was never refilled. I was disappointed

Sincerely, Zack Baum Assistant General Manager | CDO Tucson
They were out of anything with steak. Their garlic bread was different bread and not seasoned well and hardly any balsamic on it. The Pub burger was not done enough and the bun was soggy. We have eaten there 4 other times and it was very good. Possibly it was because it was shortly after Christmas.

Out of onion rings, lasagna, wine I ordered. Beef dip sandwich had too thick and soft bun and not enough meat. Need french bread type bun. Small amount of fries on plate with it. Chicken was overcooked. White meat dry, but was tasty.

small but diverse menu - food was excellent - loud enough that it was problematic at times to hear the conversation across the table
A great place for fun games and good food. Lively atmosphere
Super fun venue with great food and drinks. Culinary Dropout is a must visit spot in Tucson. A full evening out - with games, TVs, large group tables, and dog friendly all in a hip outdoor warehouse setting. Check it out - you'll be glad you did!
We loved this restaurant! The service was impeccable and the food was delicious! Prices were very reasonable and the kids loved playing corn hole and ping pong. Such a fun, casual and cool atmosphere. Will definitely return!
good food but first two items we tried to order they were out of. They should tell you beforehand.
Coleslaw yucky. Steak very good. Chicken very good. Arugala lettuce yuck...not good as side dish.

our server (s) were wonderful! made great conversation and made sure we had everything we could possibly need.
Birthday. The seating accommodations were excellent. Wonderful service by Christian.
I brought a friend for dinner who had never eaten there and she absolutely loved it and now plans to bring her husband. Our food was delicious (she raved about the deviled eggs) and our service was outstanding. Christian was our server and I can’t say enough about him. Extremely personable, professional and he made sure we had a FUN evening! Will be back!
