Stopped here for lunch on the way to Willcox. The service was really slow. They did not have any of their own beers on tap... only guest beers. The food was not good. I had a chicken minestrone soup with one small piece of chicken in it. My husband and I always visit local breweries when traveling. We will not... More

We came here for dinner. We've been to many breweries and this place didn't make the list. There's not much to offer when it comes to the "adult beverages". I asked to see a menu for the drinks and they was no menu to offer, I had think up of a drink for them to make. My husband asked for... More

We came for microbrew and dinner after a long day of hiking. The beers were okay. The weekend special was BBQ ribs - very tender meat but I've never tasted a BBQ sauce that was so bland. Garlic mashed potatoes didn't have much garlic.

Was on business in Tucson the other week and stopped in here for lunch, after spotting the place as we drove past the previous day. Huge selection of great beers, or so I'm told...I was driving :( The food was exactly what you'd expect; salads, wings, burgers...etc, and when it arrived there was lots of it. I ordered the Brewhouse... More

In Tucson for first time and found Thunder Canyon from favorable TripAdvisor reviews. I agree with them. Large interior with several TVs in bar area. Went on a slow Monday evening. Half price appetizers until 7 pm and good selection of handcraft beers. Appetizer wings and vegetable/artichoke dip was plenty for 2 of us so I cannot comment on entrees... More

Our server, Jennifer was outstanding, personable and made us look forward to our next visit. The Smokin' Hot Habanero BBQ wings were sweet and once nice kick. Meatloaf and mashed potatoes were great, gravy looked heavy, but wasn't, flavors awesome.

Relatively large selection of brews and styles available at one time for a craft brewery but most are pretty average for craft beer. Good stuff but nothing really outstanding or world class. Big venue but business seemed a bit slow on a Saturday mid-afternoon. Many TVs with the usual game selections. Friendly staff and comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

If you're in a hurry you might skip this place. The service is slow. The food is so so. I had a rib eye that was really thin and over cooked. The veggies were undercooked. My buddy had the mac and cheese with chicken and bacon. It was pretty good. They have wifi so I could do some work. It's... More

We really enjoyed the late lunch here, still quite busy over a weekend. The beer choice is great and the food is really just bar food....but portions are huge! The design and layout tis great and we really enjoyed it. You can sit at the bar, tables or high tables. There are some pool tables as well. The service was... More
