Great Food and Atmosphere, Large Beer Selection

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... read 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

Had lunch on the outside patio on a warm, sunny Tucson Winter Day. This and other restaurants are next to the Arizona Campus. Great lunch. Nice scenery, i.e. coeds. Menu had a lot of variety.

Only had the food a couple times, and it was average to good. It's a great atmosphere, in and out, and offers a nice variety of drinks and beer.

I loved the sidewalk seating at night with the outdoor heaters. Busy-younger crowd. I think I just did not like what I ordered. It was a huge pizza for the price, I just did not like the sauce. Still, I would return for a late dinner and try something else another time.

We tried the Frog & Firkin for dinner. We sat outside but we had to move inside when it began to rain. Our server (Shannon) helped us move out food and drinks inside. The Chicken sandwich was moist and flavorful as was the hamburger. The beer and wine was appropriately cold.

My husband and I visited with our pre-teen daughter for lunch. While I always know what kind of beer I like, my husband is absent-minded when it comes to remembering he doesn't like a hoppy beer. Our waiter said, "If you don't like this one, there are over 100 more to try. We'll find one you like." His tip score... More
