“Great service with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

While our BBQ ribs were more Blackened than Bar-BBQed we enjoyed the evening. Since it was a very busy holiday weekend, I am giving the chef the benefit of doubt. I'm sure the kitchen was slammed.

“BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

It's the best BBQ I've ever had. The sauces are all good and the mini jalapeno and corn muffins are to die for! My favorite side is the loaded potato salad. The setting is casual and the perfect ending for a day at Starr Pass.

“Continued good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

After experiencing such good service from Elvia, we decided to come back for dinner. Elvia was gone for the day but Kevin stepped right up and provided excellent service. He brought us some jalapeño cheddar biscuits with our drinks. They were very good. He recommended the wings as an appetizer which are different from most deep fried wings. We enjoyed the BBQ as well. It is well worth visiting if you are in the Starr Pass area.

“Best Bartender”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Part of the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort, the Catalina Restaurant is a refreshing location inside and out. We've enjoyed lunch and dinner there as well as taken advantage of the daily Happy Hours. Outstanding service abounds, particularly demonstrated by Kevin Brown, the bartender. We look forward to his greeting. His infectious smile and overall ingratiating manner set the tone for the delightful experience to follow. Kevin is genuine. He knows his job and is professional in its performance. Even more notable is that his focus is really on you as he warmly sees to every detail of your request. Visit the Catalina and say "Hi" to Kevin. He'll make you feel like one of the Starr Pass family.
