The $33 prefix portions were minuscule in comparison to the other five restaurants that we visited for AZ restaurant week. The food lacked artistic presentation and flavor was unremarkable. The slow cooked beef shoulder was excessively salty. Overall nothing to write home about. Taking away from an already discouraging experience was the invasion of the flies out on the patio.... More

Then fried green tomatoes and beet appetizers followed by the salmon and pork chop. Delicious! Desserts of cherry cobbler and butterscotch pudding topped with loads of whipped... More

Everything was perfect about this gastropub. Food that was crafted to perfection. Rib-eye tacos were fantastic. Must try the BBQ pinto beans. Flipping awesome. Not kidding. I almost asked to sub them but i am glad i did not. I sat at the bar and the bartenders were personable and attentive. Felt like i knew them for years. Overall a... More

Back in town on business, my coworker wanted to return to the Salty Sow as it's near our hotel, and overall a good place. We started with the Charcuterie Plate which wasn't as good as I remember from the past, but still good (I think they rotate options on the plate often). The beer selection is good, and while not...

I was very surprised by the quality of this restaurant given its location near a walmart and typical chain restaurants. But, it was terrific. The menu was casual, but very interesting and the service and good were great.

Came here to celebrate my birthday. There were 5 in our party and we all tried something different. Everything was delicious. BUT, the best part of the evening was our server, Carissa! She has personality plus. She kept us laughing all night and she did an excellent job of taking care of us. Overall an excellent birthday celebration!

Group of 9 of us. Menu is not huge which is a good thing. We asked the chef what he recommended. Asiago encrusted Halibut was out of this world but definitely not a low calorie meal. Also the pork chop which my husband had was great. Our server was helpful and attentive.

This is a fantastic hidden secret! Sat on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful evening. If you're a sports fanatic, tv's everywhere. Menu is varied and there's something for everyone. Ordered the beef shoulder - served in a saute pan with yukon gold potatoes and a variety of roasted vegetables. For an appetizer we had the fried green tomatoes which... More

I took a small group of 8 people and ordered off of the menu. The menu was different and it was hard to make a decision. After looking what others ordered I didnt see anything I wanted more so I guess I picked correctly. The food was good but not outstanding.
