This was a quiet, quaint and old hotel restaurant in the middle of Tucson. The food was... ok. But the atmosphere was great. Nostalgic, well maintained hotel and gardens. Good service. A bit pricey, but worth it. This isn’t your hurry-up-and-eat and get back to the office kind of place. Good for a special occasion with friends or family.

The bar serves all meals and has both inside and outside tables. Not large seating areas in either; but that makes it more personal. Although mostly covered and some umbrellas, outside can be hot particularly in the morning when the sun is low and direct. Inside provides comfortable lounge areas for drinks and food service, plus some regular tables. They... More

The service is always impeccable, the food is wonderfully prepared and they make you feel special. We love the piano bar, the drinks are always made with class and the food menu changes regularly.

We went here after a long cross-country day. It was relaxing, the food was up to standards and so was the service. The bar opens up to some of the inn's lovely gardens. (Generation alert: when we were there in the early evening, the crowd was generally 50+. No problem here, but if you are younger, don't expect a happening... More

A leisurely breakfast on the patio is okay. But don't come expecting quick service so you can get out and about.

I wish Tripadvisor had something between average and very good, that's where I would place arizona inn. I dine here regularly for business (U of AZ) and it is always good (not average and not very good). I had lunch at AZ Inn yesterday in fact and had the chicken Cesar salad. Again, good, not great. The service was good,... More

It is a great place to hang out and the drinks are well made. It has a piano player that can be hit or miss.

A friend and I went to lunch here Saturday to celebrate Christmas. I had been here maybe 4 or so years ago, and I thought the food was just as good now as it was then. It was a bit too cold to sit on the patio, but indoors is just as nice. I had the seared salmon salad which... More

This is still one of the most enchanting enviroments in Tucson! Right from the very cordial welcome at the hotel entrance-- throughout the walk in a warm and historical presentation. Bar is classic! Patio one of our all-time favourites! We can't not order the spring rolls with a variety of sauces---a grilled turkey breast club--fresh and great flavours----AND---BLT Sliders---best slider... More

History, class, style and a hospitality venue that qualifies as a national historic site all are huge draw cards for the Arizona Inn. Long before arriving in Tucson we had decided to find a time to visit and tour this prized 14 acres of Tucson. That would've been enough but we had lunch in the Audubon Bar to make it... More
