It was wonderful and people came from near and far to dine at Binkey's Restaurant but it is now permanently closed. Bank's Cafe in Carefree is still open but it is not of the same high quality

Love the place, food is good and the people are nice. I have been here many times and the only issue I have ever had was a bad odor outside the place, like from a drain or something.

This was one of the top restaurants in the Phoenix area. The Binkley's still operate Cafe Bink's in Carefree and they will be opening a new venue in Phoenix later this year.

Cafe Bink 's tables are to close inside, but ok outside. Must have French fries that are fried in duck fat. All food very good

Haralds is a great "out west" experience. Old cowboy boots hang from the ceiling and yet the food is of quality not what you would expect from the initial appearance as a casual cowboy bar.Then the wine list will take it to another level with Rombauer by the glass, you cannot get that level of wine by the glass in...

Have eaten at Binkleys on several occasions and have always enjoyed the experience. We recently dined at the new closed Cave Creek location and was majorly disappointed. The food was average, the wait staff indifferent. It had all the hallmarks of a resturant closing down and an owner who did not care. We shared our dissatisfaction with the staff on... More

The food from price fix was just mediocre. The deconstructed Key lime pie was almost inedible. Will never go back. Unbelievably pricey.

So glad we were able to get in to this fantastic gourmet gastronomic delight. They are closing this week to focus on their Midtown Phoenix venue which sounds great also. They never fail to please and surprise. We were celebrating my husbands b Day, and surprised him with a very nice signed card and the tasting menu with his name... More

If you are interested in highly overpriced, ordinary and pretentiously served food then this is the place for you. I have to preface all this by saying I am spoiled, having lived in the Bay Area, California for many years and become used to dining on a regular basis on nothing short of spectacular as many restaurants. The service at... More

Unfortunately, Binkley's in Cave Creek is closing and focusing on their Midtown location. If you still have a chance to get a reservation though, I would definitely recommend it. This was our second visit and it was for their annual tomato dinner. It is a celebration of the local farmers and the tomato crop they produce. Chef Binkley does an... More
