Lovely place with a nice patio. Soup of the day was wonderful. Appetizers were great to share. Shrimp po' boy sandwich was exceptional. I did think $90 was a bit much for four lunches but Scottsdale is not known for its bargains.

Four of us for dinner. Two entrees of braised short ribs, one entree of grilled salmon and one entree of ahi tuna salad. Everyone enjoyed his/ her selection. The key lime pie dessert made a nice finish to the meal.

I visited this place before shopping at Trader Joe's. It was the kind of meal that makes you smile it's so good. I had the shrimp and grits. The grits had green peppers in them that offered a great texture compared to the creaminess of the grits. The shrimp had a nice blackened crust. It was topped with a tasso... More

Stopped in for lunch. We were seated on a lovely patio and met promptly by a friendly, efficient waiter. Salads were fresh and delicious. Sushi grade tuna was prepared perfectly and was delicious. When they learned it was our first visit to the restaurant, they "comped" us a piece of caramel banana cream pie, that was fantastic. You can't go... More

My husband and I went here for a quiet drink. My husband is obviously very East Coast Italian. He is fun and boisterous. Tonight we were cut off after 2 rounds by the operations manager of Grassroots, Twisted Grove and Wally's Gastro pub ( yuk..the REAL WALLY must be so horrified by the pretentious and nasty food!) I am not... More

Found this restaurant at the last minute after a late round of golf. Sat at the bar to be waited on by Seth, a young college student who treated us great. The menu is awesome and the short ribs were the best I ever had! I highly recommend this place and don't overlook the brownie dessert with chocolate, caramel and... More

We had been planning to dine at Grassroots on Camelback, for some time, but just never seemed to be in town long enough to make that happen. When friends were visiting Scottsdale, we decided to instead start with Grassroots Kitchen & Tap, especially as it was only blocks from our friends’ family. We had been looking forward to the visit,... More
