Scottsdale's oldest restaurant, established in 1947, welcomes back generations of loyal patrons and new-comers alike. A favorite destination in Old Town for locals and tourists year-round but truly a must-see during MLB Spring Training. Marvel at one of the most impressive MLB memorabilia collections you'll ever see and take in Scottsdale's pink landmark. The cuisine stays true to its roots featuring Mesquite Grilled Steaks, Chops, Seafood and popular American Classics.

Liked the old place much better

A foo-foo restaurant now.. expensive items and no charm. The only good thing was the waiter and sitting out on the patio. I thought the redo was actually pretty ugly. It is just not the right setting for Old Town. Was disappointed at the re-design.

Though the Pink Pony is a historic restaurant, the menu is not worth the dinner prices and the wait staff could improve. The server kept "joking" but he just came across as sarcastic which made for uncomfortable interactions. If I were to go again, I would visit for happy hour and grab a drink along with some Pony Pretzels where... More

This is a great place for drinks and people watching. The recently renovated decor is a blend of the Southwest & Hipster, that being said it is overpriced and the food is remarkably average. Maybe they're still going through growing pains in the kitchen but for right now it is nothing to crow about.

Nice restaurant. Though they didn't have much on the menu for a vegetarian like me,the chef was kind enough to make me a special dish that was very good. We sat on the covered patio area and enjoyed watching the cars go by on Scottsdale rd. The waiter was very helpful and pleasant and the valet service was right out... More

We thought the remodel looked so good that the food would be too. It was ok and the new server was lovely but there are better places in old Scottsdale.

There were so many good choices on the menu... We're trying to eat healthy lately, so we both chose fish... The salmon wasn't cooked correctly, although the rest of the dish was delicious. The special was kind of awful and the replacement dish, perhaps rushed, wasn't cooked through, either. The manager was quite helpful, but I have to say, when... More

had the beet salad mmmmm. The salmon was the best I have ever had, and I lived in Seattle for three years. Very competent wait staff. Modern with a splash of baseball memorabilia ....fun

Walked in to the Pink Pony in Scottsdale, random choice after seeing the Happy Hour sign. Dinner was very good. Would go back there again.

Heard good things about this place during our trip here for spring training. Waiter was very nice. Ambience was nice. Their food was not nice. Their featured meatloaf was tough and bland. Spareribs were rubbery and bland. Even a simple salad was served with tons of salt on it. We told the manager when he stopped by to ask how... More

This place had been recommended to us by friends so we had high hopes. However, this place was really just average -- everything about it (except atmosphere which was good) -- food, service. Nothing special. I have to believe there are better options in/around Old Town Scottsdale.
