We celebrated our anniversary here on a vacation several years ago and loved it, especially the outdoor patio for after dinner refreshments and atmosphere. On this current visit, again around the time of our anniversary a few years later, we decided to check it out again, this time for their happy hour. We sat on the patio for an amazing... More

I came to listen to a band and had their Happy Hour Burger and House Red Wine and it was wonderful. Burger was one of the best I have had in a long time and the wine was just what I wanted.

We were in Tucson visiting family and they suggested McMahon's ~ food was delicious and service was top notch. The steak was tender and full of flavor. We sat in the piano bar area and they had a wonderful piano player. A memorable fun dinner with family.

The ambience at McMahon's is lovely, but the food was very average. They seem to think that an artistic drizzle of Sauce across the dish makes them a fine dining experience. Their pride is ultra large cuts of steak, but the steaks are served a bit too charred and they are also somewhat fatty. The Tenderloin Brochette (skewered filet mignon)... More

This is a real old school steakhouse that serves good food and offers a wonderful selection of fine wines. We ate here at the suggestion of a local resident and we had a very good experience. The interior of the restaurant is very nice, slightly dark, suitable for a business dinner or a romantic evening with your spouse or date.... More

Thank you for suggesting McMahon's Prime Steakhouse for your outing. I am sorry that we failed to get the proper temperatures on your steaks. That is unusual (especially twice) - and I have shared your feedback with our chef. I am glad a manager got involved, but again, I am sorry that there were preparation issues. I assure you that...

Brought 30 clients here recently and had a marvelous event. Great A/V support, wonderful service and of course, excellent food made this an easy choice for my company. Room was quiet and spacious and well appointed to impress. We will definitely use them again!
