Been enjoying Sugar Bowl since I was a kid & it still looks the same! I ALWAYS have a "tin roof sundae" & its delicious every time. The city has grown & changed around it. A must visit when you are in old town or for a special occasion. Friendly, busy & oh what a treat!

Visited while staying in Scottsdale at lunchtime. Not overly impressed with small food portions which were average, but this place seems to cater for ice creams and desserts which did seem very good. Service was Ok but some staff seemed complacent to customers and did not reflect the friendly and professional standards we experienced in other parts of Scottsdale. For example not even a "thank you" or "goodbye" when we left the restaurant.

I went here with my wife & 2 co workers from work. The Banna Splits were good along with the service.

blazing hot day but it was a nice place to stop. Very pink and very dated but service was good and quite an extensive menu. I had food and the kids had ice cream and everything was nice. Nice too, to go to a place that is not a big chain. Cute little arcade in back though too bad so many games are out of order. Good fair prices, food came fast, ice cream was wonderful!

Stopped here while on vacation because it has the feel of an old retro ice cream parlor. Ordered lunch, which was honestly terrible. No one finished their lunch. Ordered a hamburger with fries and was told they don't serve fries. Options were very limited. Ice cream was okay, but overpriced. Service was poor and manager was rude when questioned about quality of food. Would never go back.
