My family was celebrating a special night and decided to make it over to McMahon’s for dinner. We started with the escargot appetizer and needless to say it was excellent, just enough butter and garlic to zest up the taste. Confession time: I am not a big fan of escargot and I do not have the ja ne sais quois... More

Four of us went for the Easter Buffett today. Quite the crowd. McMahon's has always been one of the better restaurants in Tucson. Service is never anything but great. The main meat was Lamb and a whole New York strip roast. The beef was perfection. The Lamb had a tendency to have a bit of grizzle and difficult to cut,... More

Excellent high quality food and great atmosphere and service. Steaks were clearly prime beef cooked to perfection. Classy quiet ambiance with nice touch of piano player.

A friend and I felt like dancing one beautiful Friday evening in late March and headed over to McMahon's for happy hour food, drinks, and some rockin' 60's and 70's music. Before the band started at 7 PM, we ordered a great $6 happy hour hamburger and a large glass of wine ($7.50). For those older folks out there, like... More

This was our second visit and just like the first, we were completely satisfied. The food, service & atmosphere are all first rate. We visited on St. Patrick's Day and had corn beef. The only place that I had better was in Ireland. McMahon's is an excellent example of when something is done right, it remains at the top of... More

We had never been to this restaurant, so we went for Burger Monday, when they are $6 from 11-3, as one of the lunch specials. It was one of the best hamburgers (made from ground steak) I've had! We also ordered a side of sweet potato fries, which were delicious too. We would definitely try this place again!

One of the best happy hours in town. Great appetizers for only $6 and wine, martinis, cosmos, and other libations at only $6 also. The cigar smoke is annoying, the lounge is named smoke.

Our 37th anniversary party of 2. We arrived 5ish took a seat in the bar. Tablecloths on the high top tables. Ordered dirty martinis... Perfect. Ate off the bar menu which is the best value for the caliber of food. Oysters for an app burgers for dinner. Great time and waitresses wear amazing hosiery 😉

Business dinner. Food was outstanding. Walked the restaurant out of curiosity and was invited to see the wine cellar and dining room. Ask to have that. Private and unique. Met the owner who was very friendly. Great suggestions where to go in Tucson. Fun night.

Thank you for enjoying your business dinner with us. We love to give our guests tours of our expansive restaurant. Intimate dining rooms, private rooms, three wine cellars, two bars and a cigar friendly patio make up our unique space. Most people don't experience the whole property, and we love when they do.
