Great atmosphere, delicious food and some good hometown service. I started off with a salad (what was I thinking) but redeemed myself by ordering the T-bone steak. 22 ounces of genuine prime cut meat cooked exactly my specifications, Med-Well! I highly recommend date night to Rustler's Rooste. The view is spectacular and again, the service was delightful.

The name gives you an idea of the type of restaurant "Rustler's" So from sliding down a slide to get to your table to your hostess decked out as a Cowboy. Dance to the country music or best to sit outside. In the daytime you will enjoy a wonderful view of Phoenix since you are on the South part of... More

While on business I visited the Rooste for dinner ... a Friday evening. Food was good, margaritas were very good, and while waiting I had the treat of watching the sunset from what I would bet is one of the best vistas around. I was also lucky enough to hear great country music (and I am not usually a fan).... More

Great experience. There was a 90 minute wait the night we visited but the indoor slide kept our 5 year olds busy for almost the entire 90 minutes. Get a steak. Tried the ribs based off reviews but they have better items on the menu. Incredible views and the cotton candy at the end of the meal was a nice... More

I have lived in Phoenix for 15 years and have never eaten here until last night. I have always heard great things but never had the chance to make it by there. After going, I am not sure I missed out on anything after all this time. The environment was great and the view is amazing! We ordered two steaks,... More

Western decor and a great view of downtown Phoenix! Our steak was not cooked to our liking and the waitress immediately took our steaks and returned with ones that were perfect! Children would like the slide to the dining area and the cotton candy at the end of the meal. Spectacular sunset view!!

Great atmosphere and terrific food! It is a little noisy but not a big issue. The wait staff was on point.

We were visiting Phoenix on the last stop of our vacation and we're staying at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort. The concierge recommended this place. It was one of the best places we ate during our trip which started in San Francisco and went through Las Vegas. The staff was super friendly, they have a slide to your table,... More

We saw their lights on the hill when we were checking into our hotel...Asking what the lights are, the hotel staff pulled out a menu and sold us on giving it a try. Wow, when we got to the parking lot, half of Phoenix was already there. We had reservations, or the wait was 90 minutes. It's the ambiance that... More

The title says it all - for me, I'd rather have Texas Roadhouse anyday for this type of food. The staff was good though :0)
