Good sandwich and reasonable prices

Busy place on a Wed. afternoon. Having a late lunch in this college area and still this place was hopping. The beer selection is vast and they had a pear cider for me, yeah. We both ordered a sandwich and cut them in half so share. The bread was split down the middle and filled making it a little... read more

We stopped by this bar as part of a streetcar pub crawl for a beer on our way back to the hotel. The selection was fantastic but I would not consider this a bar that really stands out from the rest.

Located near the UA Campus, Frog & Firkin is always packed. UA is on winter break, so we decided this would be a good time to try it. I had no idea what I was missing. Has limited seating inside or on a large outdoor patio for people watching. Lots of TVs to watch sports. Hugely popular before/after UA games.... More

Upon first entering, I thought it was a pub but upon closer inspection, it's a great little hidden gem! I tried the margarita pizza and it was delicious! The staff were very kind and helpful.

We went here the first night my in-laws came into town from NY. The were impressed with the pizza and so were we. The Guinness was creamy, perfect. This is defiantly our new favorite place to go with friends. Plenty of TV's if you want to catch a game and music to enjoy with friends. Hard not to have a... More

I'm a well traveled pizza lover . Start there . I have lived in both NYC and Chicago . This is top 5 for me . I had it delivered to my hotel room so can't say much about ambiance really . Well done on the pizza front though .

We love going here. My husband, brother-in-law, and I shared a large (firkin) pizza. It was very big, and we could only eat half. Lots of dough as well, great flavor. Friendly and prompt service, and there's always a good crowd. No need to venture anywhere else.

Great location (walking distance) to U of A campus. Definitely one of the more popular spots to go hang out. Typical college bar/restaurant-- Drinks are great but food pretty average. Servers are nice. Have been there several times - sometimes service is good sometimes it is very slow/bad. Last visit my husband had to leave our table and go to... More

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
