“Awesome Food, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We went there during the sleepy Scottsdale summer, so we were able to get right in. The food we had was excellent- blackened salmon sandwhich w/ homemade chips, kids food was great, margarita pizza was amazing- the crust could be the best I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and order the crab cake appetizer.... SO GOOD! The calamari was also excellent, but the thai chili sauce is what elevates the rather ordinary app to something memorable. Just get a side of the sauce if you don't want to order of calamari!! Key Lime Pie was great (better than I've ever made it) and the nutella & chunky monkey stuffed crepes were delicious, not my favorite but devoured non- the- less. The best dish was the Shrimp & Grits. Being from California, I don't see this on menus very often, and I like to order new things. So glad I did. It was unbelievable. Shrimp, bacon, guyere, grits.... AMAZING!! Bottom line- obviously we enjoyed the food... but the service and the staff were all very nice, informative & freindly.

“Very nice, upscale”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stopped in for a small bite to eat and a beverage. I had the Sangria and I have to say it might be the best I've ever had (and I try it wherever it is served). It is a bit on the sweet side but not too sugary/sweet. $7.00 a glass. They had some small plates, we started with bruschetta $6.95 (good), then BBQ ribs $8.95, husband had pulled pork tacos $6.95. It was all very good. What we really liked is the staff. Everyone who walked by picked up a dirty dish or filled a water glass. This is my time to give a shout out to Amy. She made an already pleasant experience better.

“LOUD! And disappointing service”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Maybe we made the mistake of coming on Father's Day...the place was packed and the noise level so loud in this large dining room, we could hardly hear each other. Our server was pleasant but made several errors with drink orders, food items and service was just overall really slow. The steaks we ordered (prime rib and filet) were good but had to ask (and wait) for horseradish sauce. Baked potatoes came plain (REALLY?) and had to ask (and wait!) for butter and sour cream. My husband ordered the grouper-decent but came on a HUGE bed of angel hair pasta with no flavor.
