“Something for everyone!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The staff is friendly and accomodating. There's outdoor space with a great view if the weather is nice. Live music, good food. Slides for little kids. This place rocks!

“Decent food, good view, fun stuff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Our salmon ($19.95) was cooked perfectly; good job for a restaurant that serves tons of people. The rice and corn on the cob weren't so great, however. Speaking of tons... that's what I'd weigh if I ate all the food they serve. We were shocked when the waitress brought out cotton candy at the end of the meal.
But yes, the view is grand, the music is fun and the service is good. Go for a relaxing time and bring your appetite.

“Lively & Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a great place to take the whole family. Lots to do for the little ones, including a slide and live music and dancing. As far as food goes, it's pretty much steak, ribs and burgers. It's the atmosphere you come for here. Comes with a panoramic view of the Valley of the Sun!

“Fun Dining with a View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The longhorn at the front door was novel, as was the walk through the entrance - it was like walking into a mine - then opened up into the large bar/lounge. Very busy place, but we were greeted immediately and didn't have to wait long for our party of 6 to be seated downstairs (didn't take the slide!) Our table looked out over the patio and we had a lovely view of the city. Drinks served in mason jars. Some of us tried the rattlesnake & cactus appetizer, not bad if you could get past the snake rib carcass decoration. (another novelty)onto the city. Two in our party ordered the Cowboy Stuff sampler with lots of goodies. Prime rib, fried chicken, bbq ribs and sirloin steak were also ordered. Everyone was pleased with the food. Cotton Candy in tins served for dessert. It's definitely a family party style good time place.

“Fun with live music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The live music was great, my 5 year old LOVED the slide, food was average-not bad but nothing outstanding (I had the steak and enchilada dish, husband had a steak, son had spaghetti). The view is very nice. It is loud but that is what I would expect with live music. I'm sure we'll go again if we are in Phoenix again as I don't think my son will forget about the slide.
