“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

While visiting the beautiful mountain town of Jerome, Arizona we stopped to have lunch at Grapes Restaurant & Bar. You were able to see them make the food fresh and to order while sitting by the bar. I ordered a salad that was so fresh...it was like they got the veggies right from the garden. My friends had sandwiches and said they were very good. The portions were very good for the price! I wish it wasn't so far and that I didn't live in an entirely different state, because I would be a "regular" diner of this restaurant. Definitely worth visiting if you happen to be in Jerome! Loved it!

“Great food. Great drinks. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped here on recommendation of a local and glad we did. Chill atmosphere and great food, drinks and service. Artichoke bread appetizer was killer - so good we ordered a second one. Ahi tuna was cooked perfectly too. Wine selection is very good and drink specials were excellent. Shout outs to Autumn and Cody the bartender - their recommendations were great. If you're in the area you've got to stop by - but plan to spend several hours.

“Don't be put off by the exterior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Grapes sits high on the hill in Jerome, a small restaurant with a small outdoor patio. We luckily scored one of the patio tables as the interior is dark, with booths and a bit of conversational noise. Every day from 5-9 wine is $5 a glass and I had a wonderful Rutherford chardonnay, presented at the correct temperature. The shrimp cocktail, special of the day for $5, was delicious, with the shrimp chilled and tasty and the cocktail sauce just the right spicy.
We had the pepperoni pizza (my huband's favorite), thin crusted but with delicious sauce and not oily meat. We shared their spinach salad, filled with tomatoes, olives and a tasty salad dressing. Service was great. This place is a gem in the charming town of Jerome.

“Shrimp cocktail and tomato basil soup were outstanding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We stayed at Surgeon's House (amazing) and Andrea recommended this restaurant. So glad we listened to her. The shrimp cocktail on special Fridays was absolutely delicious with a great spicy horseradish cocktail sauce. I regret not getting a second one.

The tomato basil soup was wonderful and we both loved it. My husband would have been in heaven is he could have had that soup used as a sauce over pasta. With the basil/pesto it was very much like a flavorful vodka sauce.

My sliders were not that exciting. After initially having items with such great flavors I found the two sandwiches (beef and the pesto) somewhat boring and would try something else next time. My husband's chicken saltimbocca was okay. The addition of the lemon butter made the dish seem super oily. I think a creamy lemon sauce would improve it.

May have been our first time, but can't wait to try it again.
