Took a party of 5 to Thunder Canyon Brewery. Ordered the Pastrami Ruben($14.50) which was very good. 2 ordered the full fish & chips plate($14.00) which was good but only 3 pieces of fish(was wondering how many came with 1/2 order), and the TCS Pub Burger with bacon($12.40). Didn't order any beer but did have Margrita($4.00 on Sunday). The service... More

Good place for local brews and quick lunches. Had the brat sandwich, but was not that impressed. Had to go get my own mustard at nearby table. Patio always seems to need a good cleaning and mister needs some CLR....needed an umbrella. Next time will try inside and delve more deeply into the menu.

We were involuntarily stuck in Tuscon and figured the only was to make it better was to find a brewery. While we are "off the beaten track" kind of people, our options were slim without having to drive a lot. The person at the desk of our hotel recommended the Thunder Canyon Brewery. We found it easily but were disappointed... More

Visited here for a quick half, but ended up staying for more and some bar food and really loved it. The ladies behind the bar were so friendly, happy to take pictures of my Uncle, my wife and I. I was unsure what drink to order so they happily offered me some samples to try, I cannot for the life... More

The "Lightning lunch" is an excellent choice with a variety of offerings at very reasonable prices. Select from soups, salads,burgers,fish and chips, etc. I enjoyed the Italian Grinder salad. The meat could be cut smaller (bite size) but I ate every morsel. I love the beer selection but opted for ice tea.

The happy hour specials are really good. We had the nachos , which was enough for two people and half price during happy hour. We tried the beer brewed with orange and it was very good. We also had a mixed drink, which was delicious. Our server was very helpful and friendly. All the food and drinks came out quickly.... More

I continue to go here because of the Beer selection. You can get your usual favorites , however, I like the grapefruit and other citrus style wheat beers. Friendly service. Always nice to see the Manager, Dave. His added touch in checking on his customers and striking up nice conversation is appreciated. I have noticed that several menu items are... More

Monday evening better for some peace and quiet. Weekends are crazy. Great selection of craft beer. Zucchini sticks store bought but OK. Macaroni was also OK, not the best but a good match with the beer.

Was in town five days for work and saw this place as I was walking back from St. Augustine Cathedral. So on Sunday I ordered the burrito for Sunday brunch along with trying their "experimental IPA". both were fantastic. The bartender Laurie was very friendly and provided prompt service. I returned on Tuesday for happy hour (half price on appetizers... More

Wanted to like this place but something is off. Food ok beer ok. Nothing great. So many other choices it is hard to recommend this place.
