The Stockyards Restaurant & 1889 Saloon
Old Arizona charm, great service,Old Arizona charm, great service, really good food....ambiance inviting6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionProbably the only negative is that its a bit pricey.Food was great.Service was also.Paid about $265 for 6 people(w/gratuity).Not much for scenery besides photos on the walls.This is why I would recommend for special occasion.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Love This PlaceWe have been going to the Stockyards for several years now, and we love it. The staff is friendly, and the food is excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPhoenix rememberedOld West, Elegant West, the place where the ranchers of the West would congregate. I came to the Stockyards on business trips to Phoenix in the '60s, 70s and 80s to enjoy the atmosphere and great western cooking. None of that has changed. The Prime Rib is melt in your mouth good and the BBQ baby-back ribs are full of the flavors of the southwest, not too sweet with the bite of native spices -- yum. The cocktail lounge is elegant, a place where movies should be filmed. I expected to see Paladin sitting at the bar. The one thing that held back a five-star overall rating was that the service was rushed, the waiter more interested in table turn than service.
For you folks in Sun Lakes, its less than a half-hour using I10 and SR 143.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDiamond in the roughI was a little leary driving there. I hadn't paid attention to where this is in town. I'm SO glad I went. The food was amazing, the service was incredible. I swear there is a gentleman whose only job is to make sure your water glass is full. He was amazing. My friend and I drink a LOT of water and neither of us ever had an empty glass. Our sever was super nice and never made us feel like were weren't important just because we were there for the Restaurant Week menu. They were so welcoming and friendly. The hostesses encouraged us to wander around after our meal to check out the photo's and history of the restaurant. If you are into that, which I am, it is very interesting. I absolutely love this place and will definitely go back.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA little slow on the food delivery!Took 30 minutes between salads and steaks.....we were there for 3 hours!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Phoenix GemOur party visit The Stockyards Restaurant for the first time during Restaurant Week. We had great dinners, wonderful and very helpful service and enjoyed the ambience. The server and his assistants performed like a well trained team, with each knowing exactly who ordered each dish and refilling our drinks promptly. We will certainly be visiting The Stockyards for great prime rib and baby-backs, and outstanding desserts.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOld SchoolLandmark steak house. Great selection of scotch and bourbon. The food was very good.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Restaurant!! Must go!!In short, all the food from sit down to stand up and the pecan pie we took home was excellent. Everything seasoned perfectly, perfect temperature, we had ribeye and filet, both Amazing! The relish and breads at the table was best ever. If we were from AZ we would go there all the time, but as visitors from St Louis and Foodies extraordinar, we really agree with what we read about it before going, it really is in top 15 best Resturants in the USA!! Almost worth a plane ticket back for our Anniversary in June! :) BTW... We kept telling the waiter how good it all was and was all acting like I know it's good! They have the bragging rights to be strutting like that! Waiter was great too, but again he didn't need us to tell him how good it was.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery niceHad the full list of steaks. Enjoyed a delicious Chateaubriand meal with my daughter. The meat was cooked just right. The service was wonderful and very attentive. A very enjoyable meal.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the BEST waiter, heWe had the BEST waiter, he was very professional, friendly, funny and caring.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMdining experienceWe were celebrating our son's graduation from ASU.

A favorite place for close friends and out of towners.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, all meats hadGreat service, all meats had a fine taste, original steak house atmosphere, on our list when we come back to phoenix.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe moment we stepped insideThe moment we stepped inside the front Copper doors we were greeted warmly. It took less then thirty seconds till we were shown to a booth. Alice was our server and she was very helpful in recommending a wine to go with my 18 ounce Prime Rib. The recommendation was very good and I enjoyed two glasses with dinner. Alice checked with us to see if my wife's 20 ounce Porterhouse and my Prime Rib were prepared as requested. They were cooked perfectly. She continued to see if we needed anything else during dinner. History surrounds you at the Stockyards Resturant as does the quite atmosphere. One thing both my wife and I wish we had been warned of was the horseradish in the shrimp cocktail sauce, it was very strong. Overall excellent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal and service weGreat meal and service we will be back thanks Dennis & Virginia4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI can't imagine how dinnerI can't imagine how dinner could be better.

You know your steak is going to be good when they don't offer any sauces when your food arrives - the steak is so perfectly made that it doesn't need anything. If I had any criticisms, it would be that the whiskey and scotch selection is somewhat unimpressive. Perhaps I'm a bit of a whiskey/bourbon/scotch snob, but most of the choices were pretty basic. That small detail aside, it was a fantastic experience. This place is all about the food after all, and they do that really well. Can't wait to go back to try some of their other entrees.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent table service andExcellent table service and the prime rib was outstanding. The wine list prices were very fair. The greeters were very friendly and when we left they were appreciative of our business.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tilapia was undercookedThe tilapia was undercooked and not enough flavor. Guess I should have stayed with the beef!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I very much enjoyedMy wife and I very much enjoyed our Anniversary dinner at the Stock Yars. Thank You3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'lll go back again and again!My nephew and I ended up getting the Buffalo Rib Eye for $75 a pop. We were really happy with the choice, cooked and seasoned to perfection! Service was really good, very comfortable seating and atmosphere. The Bar was really cool as well. We will definitely make this part of our spring training ritual moving forward. They also accept the Passport card, which is great because you get your 2nd meal complimentary. Since they include a Potato and Salad with your entree, Bread service and raw vegetables, you really don't need to order any ala carte sides, although we ordered the mushrooms and they were really good.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVisit Phoenix area for a coupleVisit Phoenix area for a couple of months every year, and always enjoy the prime-rib at Stockyards.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our food and theWe enjoyed our food and the service was fantastic. We would highly recommend eating here.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood , quality steak house!Great Phoenix send-off near the airport!
We were looking for a good restaurant to enjoy our night before flying off , and found it.
Service was very good, the muffins and cornbread were tummy, fresh veggies and dip delicious, and the meats were tasty and prepared well. My friend had the elk and enjoyed it, my filet was as expected, a good but not spectacular dish.
Good old fashioned steak house, rolled and pleated leather comfy seating, solid salads and steaks... Hit the spot for us!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Place in town. Steak,Best Place in town. Steak, booze, and a piece of Arizona history.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverytime I come here I alwaysEverytime I come here I always want to come back for more because of the great food and service. Their lunch specials are also awesome.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place for a steakWe were looking for a good steak while in Phoenix and this place fit the bill. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us just the right amount of attention. My husband ordered the 18 oz. Prime Rib which was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious au jus. I had the 8 oz. filet which was also cooked perfectly. I didn't care for the potato dish I ordered, but that was just a personal preference. We both had the chicken rice soup which was creamy and delicious. All the meals come with a basket of fresh bicuits and corn muffins. Both were very good. We did not order a dessert.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding,serviceFood was outstanding,service excellent,hostesses very friendly. What more could you ask for.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI have come here once a yearI have come here once a year since 1975 while I'm in the Valley for Spring Training. It is remarkable to me how consistently excellent The Stockyards has remained. Food, service and atmosphere were top notch 37 years ago...and they still are. Menu has expanded over the years but it all remains excellent, served with a quiet dignity in relaxed conditions. Keep up the good work, Stockyards. Here's to another 37 years!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAdding to a perfect Monday nightWe went on a Monday night before a downtown Phoenix concert and were a small group. We were pleasantly surprised that they were busy, even though we were early. Our server, Matthew, was attentive and helpful. There is a lot of AZ history there, but it has a well-cared-for vibe. While it is a steak house, there were other options. We enjoyed it immensely! By the way, who serves crudities before dinner these days? It was a nice touch. We'll recommend it to our friends and visitors.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experienceWe had a wonderful experience at you restaurant. The steaks were perfect.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were fantastic! I will definitely be back!3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Terrific Experience At StockyardsThis was our first visit to Stockyards, and it will not be our last. From the moment we entered, we received personal attention, and our fabulous server, Alice, even took the time to explain the history of the place (as well as of the 1889 Saloon, both of which are beautiful in the "old West/cowboy way"). The ceasar salad was delicious, the shrimp cocktail and baked potato were just what we wanted, and the 16 oz. NY strip steak, according to my "other half," was perfection. He savored every bite (as well as, later, the pecan pie). We appreciated that Alice took the time to explain the "choice" cuts of meat, guiding us to the restaurant's finest selections. We HIGHLY recommend Stockyards, and our thanks to the staff for a great evening!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMArizonas BestThis Arizona Icon is one of the best steak houses in the state. The Museum quality historical memorabilia keeps you entertained for hours.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time IThis is the second time I have had dinner with friends at the Stockyards. And each time the experience could hardly be improved. The staff is professional but warm and courteous. Above all the staff is interested in accommodating the customer's needs and wishes. Each time I had the rib-eye steak, my favorite steak. And each time it was cooked to perfection and the meat quite flavorful. I will keep going back as long as The Stockyards and their staff keep repeating their great food and service!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
