I chose Phoenix City Grille to hold my family party and I was more than impressed! They easily accommodated 14 of us and gave us the best experience we've had with any of our gatherings elsewhere. Having a pleasant, personable young lady like our server, Sonja, contributed to our enjoyable evening immensely. She took great care of us without skipping... More

The food was good..... But the older waiter at the bar was inconsiderate and rude. I do not know if he is a family member, but he needs to work in the kitchen. He does not interact with customers and acts like you are bothering him. Is he the owner? He should have been terminated at LONG time ago.. STAY... More

My wife and I dined at this restaurant in late December 2014 to commemorate our silver wedding anniversary. It's in a strip mall, and looks unassuming from the outside, but is a very nice place! For appetizers, we ordered the Beet Salad and Original Griddled Corn Cakes. The corn cakes were magnificent...best appetizer we've ever had. The beet salad was... More

I know Phoenix City Grill has been around but I did not know about it. I chose this restaurant for a night out with my mother (before a Willie Nelson concert at Celebrity Theater.) I wish the concert that followed the dinner was half as good as Phoenix City Grill. The atmosphere was perfect, the noise level was perfect (not... More

In addition to having lunch and dinner at the Phoenix City Grill we have utilized their "back room" for parties. They can do a sit down dinner in this very pleasant room for about 40 people. This room also has it's own private bathrooms. The food is off of the regular menu, or we have picked 6 or more entries... More

Where do I start - oh yes, the service. I think her name is Kayley and she was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, fun, and used words like 'savory' to describe menu choices. We started with the bacon grilled shrimp ... YUM. One of us had the special pork tenderloin wrapped in proscetta (sp). Another had the half rack of ribs with... More

Based on a recommendation of a local in Phoenix we tried this at the last minute and were very pleased. We started with their 'Original Griddled Corn Cakes' because it appeared to be their unique specialty appetizer. So glad we did. It was amazing. My wife had the Salmon, which was on a cedar plank and very good. I chose... More
