Great selection of beers. Pizza is to die for. Service was great. Awesome patio for watching sports. Amount of TV's inside the bar is incredible.

We had lunch at Frog & Firkin the day before college graduation so it was pretty crazy busy. But we found a nice shady table outside and the food and drinks were quite good. Hamburger was delicious! And they have a wide variety of beers. Service was very good, especially considering how busy they were. My grandsons wanted some of... More

We loved this place...it's full of young people, loud music and life. It's great to sit outside and look at the people passing by...we loved the pizza which is fresh made.

Look up Firkin (it is a beer keg), and the beer served here is quite good. The food complements the beer, and the service both times we were there was very good.

We had previously gone here about 3 years ago and we enjoyed it so much that we went back when we returned to Tucson recently. Food is very good and sitting outside after a long winter was just what we needed.

We were in the area and liked the outdoor seating area plus we were able to watch the B-Ball games there. Not often you can find outside seating with sports TV. Great selection of beer a good food. The wait staff were very helpful seating us and looking after us. We definitely plan on watching the Seahawks here this Fall.

Service was good to very good. Atmosphere sitting on the patio in the shade was great food was very good with wider selection than expected selection of draft beers was very good. Glad we stopped here.

The food and service was very good at Frog & Furkin in Tucson. Active scene near UofA. A favorite hangout. Pretzels, salad and Pizza were good. The salad with chicken was a little light on the chicken but still tasty.

We attended a special event at Centennial Hall so decided to go to dinner with friends. Most of the other customers were also seniors. Food was ordinary. Music was rap. Service was fine & volume was turned down, upon request. This place is geared to the university crowd but they deserve a better menu. Good selection of beers.

Thank Gail F
