Restaurant fun!

Great atmosphere and good food. My son insists on going there each time he visits. The whole little shopping area and show adds to the experience.

I'm sorry but the food just is NOT good here. I've eaten here about 5 times since I've lived in Tucson (about 10 years) and it's always the same......steaks with no flavor, bland sides and limited menu options. You'd think with so few options they would do a GREAT job. NO! Go here for the fun atmosphere but not the... More

This place was exactly what we hpoed it would be. The steaks were charbroiled and very tasty. They had a veggie burger for my youngest. Before and after dinner we walked around the "old west town" and we saw a excellent "bank robbers vs. lawmen" show. I was very impressed with the show! Lots of stunts, explosions and it was... More

I have been visiting Pinnacle Peak for a few years now every time I get a chance to visit Tucson. It is on my list of must do's when I visit. The staff is always freindly and the location is historic and part of Tucson history. Pinnacle Peak is a place for families to enjoy the old west atmosphere and... More

Fire-grilled steaks and great barbecue selections, too. This place has an Old West theme, and is in the middle of a very quaint Western-style "town" that includes a gazebo, general store and portrait shop, and several other stores. There's a train ride that goes around the whole town, and a small Ferris Wheel for the kids. Every evening, there's an... More

This is a must for out of town visitors. The entire location is very entertaining, the building looks historic and of course the TIES ;) Our guests have all loved the entire experience, even though the food is just average.

I read several complaints on other sites, but our experience was good. Pricey, and you were locked in to certain side dishes, besides that we were very pleased, the cactus pear margaritas were very good

Ambience matches the area's old west design. Not formal so don't dress up! Food was yummy, my boyfriend ordered the 30oz steak & loved it. I had the cactus fruit margarita & it was good but small.
