“Great place in Old Town”
Reviewed December 31, 2010

Karsen's has some of the best food around! I personally love their "Green Marylou" as well as the "Cajun Shrimp with Garlic toast". Combine that with terrific drinks and some of the best bartenders you'll find anywhere & it's no wonder Karsen's has been doing so well for so long. don't forget ot finish your meal with a Grape Crush shot! Mmmm!

“Greatest neighborhood joint in Scottsdale”
Reviewed September 11, 2010

Just a tiny place, but the food is really good, the beer is cold and staff (Usually just one person...an owner) is always friendly. I love the 'burgers, the wings and believe it or not the salads.

“Best food in Scottsdale”
Reviewed April 7, 2010

This was a great place. You wouldn't think it by just looking at it. It's very small and looks pretty much like a small bar, but the food was spectacular and so reasonable. The service was great too, the bartenders knew just what we should go see while we were there and made great recommendations.

“Good food with good service and a neighborhood joint feel”
Reviewed January 12, 2010

My daughter and I stumbled into Karsen's Grill for a great lunch of Philly chicken cheesesteak & amazing waffle fries. Oh, and my daughter liked her hamburger, too. The service was warm, but not intrusive, and we enjoyed the neighborhood joint feel in what I'd assumed would be a typical tourist place. Be sure to get the waffle fries.

“Good food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed April 6, 2008

This is a small bar/restaurant. We had sandwiches and the potato salad. The food was pretty good. The fresh brewed tropical iced tea was delicious. Service was also great. I would definitely return to this place next time I am in downtown Scottsdale.
