“Typical Steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

Went here at the request of others because usually I can find something that satisfies my vegetarian palate even at steakhouses. I had the brie cheese appetizer, salad, and asparagus. All was delicious. For dessert, I joined in with some of the others and had the salted caramel martini. The ambiance and service was good, as you would expect. Negatively, there was a fishy smell upon entering the restaurant.

“Good, Not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Had dinner in a party of four while in town for a convention. Kincaid's has a sort of clubby, steakhouse feel to the dining room. Service was excellent. Menu prices were steakhouse high. Wine list was not large, but had some interesting bottles and was not grossly overpriced (as is the case with many of the steakhouses with which Kincaid's appears to compete). They also had several good microbrews on tap. Overall, food was pretty good, but not great -- my lamb chops were decent, but not memorable. Others felt pretty much the same way about the steaks and seafood. This is a good place for downtown Phoenix (which is not a bastion of fine dining), but won't knock your socks off. The comfortable dining room and excellent service takes the rating from Average to Very Good.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

This restaurant was a terrific choice for a Saturday night dinner. There were eight of us and the server, Adam, handled everyone extremely well. He answered questions and provided helpful suggestions. The food was very good and well presented. This restaurant is highly recommended.

“Friendly staff, good happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

I stopped at Kincaids for a beverage, maybe a light dinner. The bar staff was very friendly and accommodating. I finally ordered the chicken wings and-oh my-they were some of the best wings in recent memory, and a huge portion. Would come back for these two reasons alone.
