This is a quaint little restaurant which seems to be packed all the time. It's noisy but the food is worth the waiting and noise. Service was great and the quiche of the day was amazing and huge. We also had the corn beef hash which my husband said was the best he's ever had. We added a half order... More

Every time I've ordered the fish tacos, I've felt loved. Everything is just so. The soft warm tortillas, lightly dusted with flour, the crisp, hot, delicate, fish, the pungent cabbage, and tangy lime aioli . . . it's all amazingly put together. It taste like someone with a carrying touch did everything just right to make your experience something special.... More

Although a little pricier than other places, this is a great breakfast/brunch place in downtown Tucson! I've also really enjoyed dinner there

A Tucson classic in the hotel where Dillinger was captured. Excellent food with classic flavor. Beautiful desserts. Parking can be a challenge.

Good menu selection to choose from. They have some god looking dressers too. By the appearance, you wouldn't think the food is that good, but you'd be wrong. They have a small indoor area and a nice patio.

What a fun late, late lunch with very special friends. Great drinks. Started with lettuce wraps then on to steak salad. Visiting old town Tucson. Attentive service and very good food. Recommend.

Great place to hangout after work when visiting Tucson . When all people from different shows we met hangout together the place turns into a party zone, the bar at the lobby is best with great signature drinks

Dear Ari, Thanks for your kind words. Our lobby has been a popular destination for almost 100 years! (since 1919), we're glad you enjoyed the vibe and the signature cocktails. More

Ate dinner here because we were seeing a band play in the evening. Made a reservation, even tho we didn't have too. Place wasn't busy at all. My burger was good, but way over cooked. Edges were burnt. Hubby got the Stroganoff, said it was OK. Noodles and Company is better.
