OK. SO, in this day and age families still love to go out and eat, and like also to have a cocktail-but may have kids with them. Well-THIS is the place to GO peeps with the entire family! You can sit on large couches-eat at huge pic nick harvest tables, play board games, ping pong, sand bag throws, or just people watch! There is a great misting system, so don't worry about the heat outside.The temp is perfect. The food is awesome, priced reasonable, and the drinks are up town and YES The MULE drinks are served in $40 copper mugs. We had the oysters, fried chicken, salmon, pretzel balls in cheeeesey dip and more and everything was YUMMY! The service was 20 stars our of 10. (really!) This is a Sam Fox establishment so of course they hit a grand slam on this one, and finally a great place located not in Scottsdale but actually in PHX ( Bethany and 7th st) which Fox sort of stayed away from for tooo long..Congrats! I will return and we Spend $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!.

Went for lunch with my wife and was completely blown away by this restaurant. The outside patio is on the largest I've seen, complete with plently of table as well as oversized sofas and chairs. One side of the patio is devoted to bean bag games, ping-pong and shuffleboard tables.
The appetizers are very good and the lunch menu will satisfy any appetite. Drink menu is resonable for lunchtime. Their happy hour prices are much better. What we liked the best is that grounds really take you out of the city enviroment and transport you to a laid back atmosphere
much like a vacation. Definitley on our return list.
