Nothing better than potatoes covered in cheese and chunks of garlic. The orzo salad was delightful. My companion really enjoyed his soup and sandwich. Even though it was hot outside the patio was quite comfortable.

The Frog & Firkin is primarily a U of A student hangout. They serve fairly good pub grub. The Chicago style deep dish pizza is good. The restaurant is loud and crowded. You might even get a beer spilled on you by an intoxicated college...More

If you're looking for a very casual bite to eat in a sports bar or outdoor (sidewalk view) setting, the Frog & Firkin is a good option for drinks and casual fare. The appetizers and salads are good, and the service was friendly and adequate.

Great food, drinks, and staff! A must stop when we are in Tucson. The location is great and you can sit inside or outside. The white fries were delicious.

Stopped in for a bite on Saturday afternoon. The bad news. The place is old, dark and kind of smelly. The good news is the food and service were both very good. Might have a different experience if we had of sat outside.

Great service even on a busy Friday night, beer choices to your hearts content and yummy bar foods in a Pub Style venue are what you will get at this place. Cold beer, friendly faces and the yummiest deep dish pizza in the Tucson area!...More
