“Hubba Hubba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We ate at the Hub before heading to the Theater in Tucson. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were seated promptly. Our waiter was attentive and recommended some good seasonal beers to start out. I had the Ahi Tuna and Corn and Poblamo Chowder. Both were wonderful. The Tuna was topped with a light citrus sauce and onions. The chowder was tasty and had a good bite to it. Service was very good. I'll be back.

“Flavorful ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Ok, truth be known we just ate some dinner so we could get to the ice cream without feeling like bad parents. The names of the favors were so tempting had I not been with my four year old I would have skipped dinner. The tomato soup was good, the vegetable sandwich fine (not exciting).
The place was hopping on a Saturday night. Packed with people of all ages. Cool interior with tremendously high ceilings. Casual. Good for families, a fun date or a group of friends.
I see other reviewers had bad service. Our server was courteous, knowledgeable and prompt.
I will go back for more ice cream and drinks next time we are in Tucson.

“Go for the ice cream, stay for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Wandered in here for dinner and wasn't disappointed. Wide variety of food choices, all tasting above average to excellent. Got a free ice cream for a Yelp check in and it was worth the whole night - bourbon almond brittle, yum!! The recommended pinot noir was just okay.

“Good, and they know it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This place is always packed. The corn beef hash is awesome. The location is great and the bar is phenomenal. That said, its always packed and very crowded. The service is lackluster at best in the restaurant - the bar is great though. They dont seem to care - too busy, not enough time = not great service. I think the people were nice enough, but they just didnt seem to care. That matters to me. This has occurred on at least three occasions. I think were done eating dinner here, but we'll probably still grab a drink from time to time.
