“Very Delicious! Superb Quality and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I went to Beaver's Choice today with my husband and 2 good friends. The atmosphere was clean, beautiful, contemporary and tastefully decorated. We were greeted by the very personable owner, Hannah, who told us to sit anywhere, "like this was out home." We sat ourselves down and were greeted by our waitress, who immediately provided us with the most attentive, excellent service. The menu was diverse and very interesting...almost seemed too good to be true! We all ordered something different. When our beautifully plated and very large portioned meals arrived, we were awed by the presentation and then by the uniquely delicious meals. Everything was beyond our expectations! The food was fresh and of the finest ingredients. We felt like like we were eating a home cooked meal in a master chef's home. Really, it was THAT good! We ordered Poutine & Borsch as appetizers. Chicken Jaeger Schnitzel, Pork Cordon Blue Schnitzel and stuffed cabbage rolls as the entrees. The sides we ordered were: creamy dill potatoes, coleslaw, creamy beat salad, green bean salad,& dill mashed potatoes. Every morsel was five star delicious! We learned everything was made from scratch, on site. Their burgers (elk, angus, etc..) looked hearty and enticing, as we saw them go by to tables near us. We will be back as soon as possible as there are so many more items on the menu that we can't wait to try. We wondered why we hadn't heard of this fine establishment except from word of mouth. Turns out the owner, Hannah, does not pay for advertising as she feels she would rather put her finances into providing the highest quality food & service for her customers....and she is doing just that!

“The only Scandinavian cuisine in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Very good value. If you like to explore different cuisine certainly is a must to stop at this restaurant with a full bar and a good and friendly service. I recommend the haddock fish dish, but all the dishes are good. Personally I only avoid the dishes with a grilled fish or meat, because of the rusty iron taste they have. But this is my persona opinion, other customers they find those dishes acceptable.

“Something entirely different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Great place to eat, with interesting and deliciously different food options (not a lot of Scandinavian food around the Phoenix area). We went early on a Saturday evening, had great service. Loved the beet salad. I also had the bacon wrapped salmon which was great. Nice atmosphere. Would definitely go back again to try more of the menu!

“Very Tasty Food Something for Everyone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The house made gravlax is delicious and taste like expensive belly lox but with fresh dill and a a tasty mustard sauce. My plate came with my choice of THREE fresh made side salads and one potato choice. My husband tried the stuffed chicken breast and he said it was moist and delicious. Everything we tried was seasoned very nicely. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the green bean salad seemed to have been made with canned green beans and the ice cream seemed to be of a budget quality but everything else was EXCELLENT. The service is very friendly and warm. I didn't have to wait to long for my order here but at the old place I did wait a very long time.

“Excellent food, great staff, home-cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Don't plan on getting out fast. This is "comfort food, home-cooked for you when you order it" and nothing happens particularly fast here. But oh, the payoff !! Great food. Ate about 10 things on the menu and never had anything "average." The family who runs this place is friendly and accomodating, and their recipes are top notch. You can't go wrong with this place. It's a little small, so sometimes there might be a wait or a crowd, but it's worth it.
