NO RESPECT TO CUSTOMERS – I just had one of the most horrible encounters here at frog and firkin. I was celebrating my birthday with 7 friends and when we were done eating we had to split the check. THEY REFUSE TO DO SEPARATE CHECKS so we had to calculate the individual amounts ourselves, which took us a while. The bartender (supposed manager) began yelling directly at me because we took so long. He embarrassed me and condescendingly asked me if I knew my multiplication tables. RUDEST EMPLOYEE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. He also mistreated and demeaned my friend. DO NOT EAT THERE IF YOU WANT TO BE TREATED RESPECTFULLY.
Horrible Service avoid this place – I have been there twice and last time was worse than the first I will definately not return. First our ditzy watiress disappeared, so after a half an hour I went to the bar to order a drink, the bartender responded that I had to order from the waitress, I said that I did about 30 minutes ago, to that he responded that if I didn't like it to go someplace else. Unbelievable! So I left and went next door to No Anchovies where the service was good and so were the prices. The only reason that Frog is even open is because of its location the staff is horrible.
Best BURGER in town, coming from a Tucson native! – The Frog does not sport much seating, which is usually not a big deal in Tucson, but it certainly could use more room at the bar. Apart from the name, and dark wood bar there isn't much English about it.
But it has THE BEST BURGER in town! Absolutely AMAZING! I also have found the service to be very attentive, and food is prepared quickly.
English Pub??? – Just because you have Britian's flag hang all over the place doesn't make you an English Pub. The food is terrible and the beer isn't all that much to rave about.
Worst food, Service, and Atmosphere in Tucson, Yuck!! – There are plenty of fun places in Tucson with much better food, ie. Gentle Ben's, Risky Business, Nimbus Brewery, Maloney's, etc. Therefore, there is no good reason to go to Frog and Firkin unless you want to waste your Firkin' money. Ugggghh...
A. It has no atmospere for a supposedly British-style pub
B. Their rubbery crust and grease-soaked pizza is worse than Domino's, it puts the "ish" in "British". Is pizza British? I guess F&F think so.
C. It has no sitting room and you'll be shoulder to shoulder with strangers if there are 10+ people in the bar
D. The service is very poor and inattentive. the waitress didn't listen when we cancelled a drink order while she was still at our table and looking directly at us.
E. Management is horrendous and apparently doesn't like customers. He believed the server and made us pay for the drink we didn't order
F. Oh, yeah...the parking situation, or lack therof, is disappointing
Not a good place for Shooting Pool – I went on a Monday night with my cousin and discovered they did indid have a pool table. It was a bit of a joke the bar put one in because it was very crowded with furniture and we had to keep moving chairs around to get a shot off. The best part of my experience was the Firkin Cheeseburger. Very tasty and juicy. I also enjoyed having my drink outside on the big patio.
Firkin Good Time – This place rocks! I had the best pizza ever, their sandwiches and salads are very close behind. Boasting about 75 beers is hard to do, with 26 on tap! The service was great too. My wife and I will be locals at this place from now on.
You must love poor service! – With terrible service and marginable food< I have no idea why anyone would frequent this place. With out their fair selection of beers, this place wouldn't make it. They need to get the local beer in their place like the place next door to them did at the very least. It might improve the place.
Poor service at a high price – Of the half dozen or so times I've been to Frog & Firkin I have experienced high prices and extremely poor service. If you are ever there with a party of five or more the add a 20% gratuity to the bill, which makes the service even worse. Their $7 sandwiches and $4 pints of beer are not nearly as a good a deal as most places on University Blvd. I for one will never go back!!!
College kids needn't travel abroad to find a good English pub. Better yet, the food is all-American. – The Scene
This little pub has managed to carve its own niche in the undistinguished University of Arizona market. The converted house has seen countless bars come and go, but it seems to have found stability in this Brit-inspired pub. The atmosphere is relaxed, as the college crowd mixes with older folk. It's much more easygoing than other UA area bars.
The Firkin's beer selection is impressive and includes British favorites Caffery's, Fullers and John Courage on tap. Service is friendly and uniformly excellent.
While You're There
The food is surprisingly tasty and the pizza is some of Tucson's best. Local bands often grace the outdoor patio area, playing everything from ska to Irish music, but always with a twist. A nominal cover charge of a few bucks gets you in on band nights.
