I loved the decor, the layout of the tables and my lunch was delicious. Try the salted caramel pudding. Serving size was just right for two. So yummy.

This is an outlet of the Fox Restaurant Concepts chain and their emphasis is on quality at a fair price. Can't argue with that as the place is good looking, clean and comfortable and professionally run. I had the Jambalaya and my only complaint is that the chicken tasted "canned". The shrimp were cooked to perfection though and the spiciness... More

We dropped in for happy hour, and ended up eating dinner at the bar. Tom the bartender was super fun and nice, and offered to make me a special drink when I wasn't thrilled with the first one I ordered. His read on what I would like was dead on. We ordered the Pretzels and Provolone Fondue appetizer. The pretzels... More

When we arrived we were told it would take 15 minutes or so to be seated. I could see a number of empty booths and was tempted to go somewhere else, but they offered to seat us near the bar. The food was very good, although the service seemed to be a little slow. Since we were seated near the... More

We stopped in here to have lunch prior to a basketball game as they were across the street from the stadium. I ordered the Ribs with the fries and cole slaw and my wife had the fish and chips with the fries and cole slaw. The food was above average but, not over the top as it did not exceed... More

Good service and in good location. Went here prior to baseball game. As expected the prices were very high. After one drink we went to different spot. Did not try the food. Asked the girl sitting next to us how her food was and she said it was "ok".

Didn't have a reservation but didn't have to wait long. Excellent waiter who explained everything very well. Menu was amazing - lots of variety with many different kinds of dishes. My husband had the Beef Rib Stew and I had the Sweet Potato Tortelli. Both excellent with wonderful flavours.

We love AB. The food is fabulous, and the cocktails are delicious. They have great beer on tap, their salads are truly unique. Pretzels and fondue, super yum!

We love Fox restaurants, downtown Phoenix and meat so it was kinda inevitable.. we arrived spontaneously but we didn't get to wait too much and it was actually nice to cool down a little from the hit before digging in.
