We stopped going to this location when they started fooling with the menu and became an e-cigarrette location. That turned us off.

Went for lunch. Great beer especially the monkeyshine ale. We had the Monkey Nugs as the appetizer which are tater tots loaded with cheese, pulled pork, jalapenos, etc (like nachos except with tater tots). I had the pulled pork sandwich. My daughter had the Cubano which was a Cuban sandwich on a hoagie roll. They have a monkey theme all... More

Went here for the first time on a Monday. And boy was I glad I did. $1.50 all Nimbus craft brews all night! Apart from their own beer they also have a decent selection of other draft beers. I didn't bother straying away from the bar the rest of the night.

Myself and friends or me and my family would come here often in the early days and I myself have eaten very tasty burgers, sides, and sandwiches at this location. Came here last weekend with my husband and two young kids. My husband had a burger and sweet potato fries and me the macaroni and cheese with fried zucchini to... More

Nice atmosphere, lots of families on a recent Friday night. We ordered the Philly and the French Dip. Both were hot and very tasty. The beer my husband ordered was a bit too warm, but my glass of wine was very good. The salad dressing I ordered was a bit weird. It was supposed to be balsamic and olive oil,... More

I was very impressed with the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. It is quite large with enough side rooms and outdoor seating to hold a huge bash or several smaller groups. There are plenty of TVs that are available to watch your favorite game no matter where you are sitting. From the decorations at the front door, they let you... More

We purchased a Groupon for Nimbus on a visit to Tucson for our anniversary. We decided to use it our first evening after a nice hike in nearby Sabino Canyon. Boy did it hit the spot after an afternoon enjoying the outsoors in the sun! Even without a Groupon, this place would have been well worth visiting. The burgers were... More

I have been wanting to go here for sometime. I don't know why, I guess just because I like microbrews and brewpubs. Pulling into the parking lot, the curb appeal was gone - the place looks run down. It needs stucco repair and fresh paint. Outside the door is a menu posted inside a glass frame. The menu was water... More

Great beers and surprisingly decent wine selections. Greek Salad I had was very good. Very good service. Nice pet friendly covered patio on back of restaurant. Would recommend for casual dining and drinks with friends and dogs

I met a childhood friend of mine here for a drink, at his recommendation. While wating for him, I had a nimbus beer, the house brew. I liked it so much that I had another one. It was an off night, so there weren't very many people there. I particuraly recommend the spinach dip.
