Really good

We were all very pleased with our meals here. My salad was EXCELLENT and I tried my son's pizza which was very good as well. Huge selection of beers - they seem to have them all. Something for every taste on this menu.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the valet at the nearby Marriott. If you want to drink beer and stick to the counters and experience dirty bathrooms then this is the place for you. The menu is pub food and nothing that we ordered was noteorthy. The burgers were basic and the pizza was more like slabs of bread... More

We stopped here before touring campus for lunch. For a Tuesday afternoon in July when school students are home, you could actually see tables and chairs vs a sea of drunken humanity watching basketball in March. We tried the veggy pizza which was very raw in the center (needed about 5 more minutes in the oven) and the bacon cheeseburgers.... More

Great food! Can't go wrong with this menu, there is something for everyone! My husband enjoyed sampling the beers. The only disappointment was that we were going to have ice cream, but they were out of any flavors we were interested in.

My wife and daughter visited this restaurant three weeks ago in June 2015 and they each had a great burger and service. When we arrived on July 21st, the service was beyond horrible with our waiter named "Danier." The person has no business being in the restaurant and did not follow Arizona safe food handling guidelines. The waiter finally served... More

I had the smoked cheese hamburger with fries, the wife enjoyed the fish and chips. Both plates were terrific. The Hamburger could be compared to my overall favorite burgers from Red Robin. We saw people order their pizza's and we decided to order that next time. Oh yeah, we are coming back soon. Service was great and enjoyed a table... More

Stopped by Frog & Firken for dinner one night. They had a great beer selection and the food was very good. I had the fish and chips, definitely good. I also had a fresh cookie/ice cream for desert, which was amazing! I would recommend sharing the cookie as it was much larger than I needed. I will be back next... More

Stopped by there today after a local rugby match for the "afters". My wife and I are a bit too old for this university hangout. Very loud music, the place was not at all clean, and although the bartender was mostly friendly, he was not very efficient. He was fast, actually too fast. I ordered a Guinness, and it was... More
