Service was poor and so was the food. They finally closed so it's ok. There is nothing nice to say about the place.

Not sure when they closed, but the food has been mediocre for several years. Not really surprised they went under. Tucson has too many good restaurants

With so many interesting restaurants in Tucson this would be so far down on my list I would never return. Not a bad meal if it's your neighborhood. Definitely not worth seeking out otherwise.

When we arrived on a Saturday, almost noon. There were only two tables occupied. The greeter never really smiled and just said table or booth. We were seated in a booth and waited forever for someone to even ask if we wanted drinks. In that time we noticed that the dining chairs were covered in thick dust and lint. Reagan... More

We are in Tucson for a five day educational conference and stay at the Westin. We found this place on a list of places to eat nearby. I had the chicken marsala and my wife had the prime rib. My chicken was not coated or stuffed with cheese, just plain covered with watery sweet brown gray with mushrooms out of... More

If you live in or visit Tucson, this is really a lovely night out...Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the music on Friday and Saturday evenings. Plenty of food (I love the salmon), reasonably priced and the music is all from our younger days (I'm 56 and recognize every song they play...sort of soft rock from the 70's and... More

This is a nice resturant. They take reservations, have good food and good service. On Friday nights they have live music that's not too loud. They have outdoor seating that is non-smoking. Good Fish Fry, good liver and onions for those of you who like that. They include salad and dessert with many meals. Coupons on Restaurant.com can save a... More

Sunday mid day. Waited 20 minutes just to be acknowledged by the "hostess" who took our coffee order. After 40 minutes of no coffee or even water, got up and left. Note, the place was not crowded with help running all over the place. Incredibly badly run.

The half sandwich and salad was excellent, I upgraded the sandwich to a Ruben and selected the Cesar salad which was plentiful and must of featured their own dressing as I could actually taste a bit of the anchovy, which...

Our visit started off poorly with the designated waiter never coming to see us. A very friendly waiter came to our assistance and made everything right and provided excellent service. We sat outside at a table under an umbrella - a true treat for northerners escaping winter. We had pork sliders, a rueben (the best we've ever had!), coffee and... More
