“Nice bar, service a little weak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We ate here the night we arrived in Scottsdale for a quick late dinner. I ordered soup and a hamburger off the fairly extensive menu. However to get tot hat point we had to wait a fair while before our waitress appeared. They seemed to have only 1 person for the entire place which while certainly not full, was way too much for one. She finally sent someone else over to help us out. This person was a little scatterbrained even though nice. We repeated the order several times since she kept forgetting it and when my food arrived she had forgotten my soup. I am not sure if it was unusual because it was a Sunday night or not but I expected more regardless. Not impressive at all. I also discovered that they have never had draft beer, which was really surprising for a large local bar.

“Over 50 Singles Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

On the weekend that is who shows up here. It is very gray and crowded. I have also sampled three food items. The teriayki chicken sliders were average, the cheeseburger was normal with good sweet potato fries and the chicken sandwich is huge and covered with cheese, but it is too big of a cutlet, which guarantees some fat on the ends. happy hour runs til 7, but this place is only crowded on weekends. Oh, the szechuan green beans were probably the best side dish here. Not crispy, but full of flavor.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Recently we were in Arizona and met family members (including a baby) for lunch. Since some were on a lunch hour they ordered separately and this didnt pose a problem. The staff was very attentive and accommodating..
