The best steak in town – Moving to Tucson from the midwest, my husband and I had been in search of a quality steak restaurant in Tucson for quite a while. Some people recommended Pinnacle Peak (decent for the money) and Hidden Valley Inn (bland), among other restaurants. We were on the verge of forever grilling our own steaks, when we heard about McMahon's. We are now complete addicts (especially the steak christiani!) The food and service has always been impeccible, and the steaks are heaven. As social-pariahs (smokers), we love the bar! Initially we tried Sullivan's (also wonderful) but found the quality at McMahon's just as high, and the prices a tad lower. Valet parking also a plus.
What a real Steak House should be! – Best steak I've had in a while. My wife and I were passing through on our way to Calif. and asked the concierge to recommend a good steak house. He picked McMahons. When we returned I tipped him a 20. Food was fantastic. Wine was delicious. Cigar was perfect ending.
top drawer! – An excellent restaurant with fine food, comfortable surroundings, and great service.
Merry Christmas continues – My wife, daughter and I went to McMahons Steakhouse for dinner on Christmas Night. They offered a Christmas Menu. The first choice was lobster bisque or a tossed salad. We all chose the Lobster Bisque. It was creamy with little bits of lobster floating in it. For the appetizer my wife chose shrimp cocktail, my daughter crab stuffed mushrooms and I chose baby Wellington. For the entree my wife chose sauteed shrimp, my daughter prime rib with mashed potatoes and I had filet of beef with mashed potatoes. Then you had your choice of coffee (with chocolate and whip cream to put in it). cappuccino or espresso. This was topped off with little servings of cheesecake with fresh blueberries, Jack Daniels no flour cake and a pastry shell filled with whip cream
Not Worth the Money – This was an outing I really looked forward to, but was very disappointed. My food was dry and the servers were trying really hard to free up our table. I would not go back.
not worth it – For the price we paid I would expect the service to be efficient and courteous, instead the service was slow, the food was mediocre and there was a hair in my daughter's salad!
date nights r best – Used to be a great place, Tucson's Ruth Chris. Used to be. Weeknight when you might want to go to escape the crowd escapes the chef. Filet was excellent, asparagus was mushy sauced with just from the fridge frosty goo, potato was a potato. Bread was returned, burned black on the bottom, but never replaced. Only things truly outstanding, the tab, they are proud of the price. Too bad not the food. Ambience was reminiscent of a great steakhouse but wasn't one.
WELL WORTH IT – Cigar and Piano Bar's excellent for lunch-coctails and or dinner. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is some of the best in Tucson. Prices are reasonable for level of food & service. You get what you pay for. Dinning room is excellent for any or special occassions and not rushed or canned as in other staak houses in Tucson. This is not a "how many meals can be served per square fooot place".
excellent but pricy – food was excellent,atmosphere the same,service also the same. but a bit pricy
Wonderful food and ambiance! – This is without a doubt the best steak I have ever tasted. The food isn't inexpensive, but I felt that it was worth every penny. The area we sat in had a live piano player who took requests. Don't forget to save room for Champagne Strawberries.
