A word from The Stockyards Restaurant & 1889 Saloon
Arizona's Original Steakhouse.

Step through the copper entry doors and feel the warm authentic atmosphere of this classic American Steakhouse. Once adjacent to the largest feedlot in the world, the restaurant is a living history museum that documents Arizona's cattle industry with historical photos and a Western Art collection. Established in 1947, The Stockyards has been serving the best hand-cut aged steaks and prime rib for 65 years. The menu also features wild game, seafood, poultry, pork, and a wide variety of appetizers, salads and desserts. Be sure to visit the 1889 Saloon where you will find a solid mahogany hand carved bar, crystal chandeliers, and walls adorned with original murals that were painted in the 50's. Step back in time and relax while you enjoy an Arizona landmark. Banquet space and private dining rooms are available, and The Stockyards is always an excellent choice for groups.

    This is one of our favourite places for quiet, romantic date-nights. We typically eat dinner here first before seein a play at the Herberger in Phoenix. This visit was to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We love the western decor, antiques (history items), and fine touches like the exquisite tin ceiling, dim lighting and quiet atmosphere. Wait staff was very attentive; even with the fine touches like folding your napkin when you step away from the table for a minute. They were also very friendly and cheerful and relaxed; definitely not stuffy or stuck up. Very good sized portions of food; they don't serve "elf" food. I like the uniqueness of the menu items; I specifically had the Wild West plate with elk and venison and loved it.

    This is the authentic old west steak house. Very cozy and warm with western charm. The food and service can not be beat. The Elk is fantastic! And the service is better than the Ritz or Four Seasons! I've been coming here since I was in college. And I always have a GREAT experience.

    The staff was very inviting, efficient, and attentative - not overly so either. Food was absolutely phenominal, and our server (Matthew) was extremely well versed in his trade. We dined on the seasonal fish, and Prime Rib - both were portions were done to our precise instructions and were healthy sized in portion. I will be visiting this establishment again, many times in the future!!

    The food was excellent, as always. The pear salad is a perfect lead-in to a heavy meal like steak, and our filets were fork-tender. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and the complimentary choice of dessert in recognition of her evening was a nice finishing touch.

    I had a business lunch who are a group of steak lovers that had a limited time for lunch, but will always have time for the Stockyard. Love the food, service knew we were tight on time and accommodated us with good service and the check right on time. Place was packed with high energy and loud business conversations, which everyone seemed to enjoy! I highly recommend this place if you are in Tempe!

    My husband had been wanting to visit The Stockyards sine he moved here in 1987. We celebrated his 52nd birthday with our 2 daughters under the age of 10. Our waiter "Bob" was friendly, well informed on the menu and interested in the dining experience of our daughters. The other wait staff was equally friendly and attentive. We had the Chateaubriand for 2. I had never had this cut of beef before and it was worth the wait. We enjoyed viewing all the historic photos in the lobby. We were just so pleased with our dinner out.

    Dined on 8/11/2014
    We read the reviews before going to the Stockyards Restaurant, so we knew we were in for a treat! Our choices from the menu were the 12 oz ribeye and the Classics dinner. The "classics dinner" included their Green Goddess salad, shrimp scampi and strawberry shortcake. Outstanding!! My husband chose the ribeye with the house salad. Again, Outstanding!! We also both had a cup of the highly recommended Steak Soup. It was good, but not something that I would order again. It was like beef stew, and for the price, skip it unless you are in a mood for beef stew! Waiter was distant at first, but warmed up as the time got closer to deciding on his tip.

    The staff is not only on top of their game, ie making sure your water is filled, etc, they are also polite, courteous, & made our dining experience perfect. The food was perfection! The atmosphere is perfect for adult dining, quiet, romantic, no rowdy groups, no loud music, no crying/screaming kids, not too dark & not brightly lit. My new favorite restaurant is the Stockyards!

    Wonderful food, attentive and friendly service, rich history of the restaurant displayed throughout dining area. Went to The Stockyards because part of the group wanted steak for dinner, they did not disappoint! Cooked just right and super flavorful. My husband's mom said she's always had bad luck ordering steak at other restaurants because it would come out either overcooked or too raw, but The Stockyards prepared her steak just as she requested and she couldn't praise them enough for a job well done. Our female server, her name escaped me, was pleasant and her timing was great. Everyone else was very attentive with filling water, clearing our table, asking if we're doing okay, etc. We look forward to coming back!

    My son and I ate here at the end of a long day in which I helped him move to Tempe, Arizona. We had looked forward to a good meal and were not disappointed. My son had a 16 ounce NY Strip which he said was outstanding. I had the prime rib. Although the menu said it was 18 ounces, it seemed more like 16 ounces (which was ok with me since I would have ordered a 16 ounce if it had been on the menu). Quality of the prime rib was excellent. Very good service. A definite keeper the next time I'm in Phoenix.

    Took my daughter here on a whim. Waitress was great-recommended the steak soup. Made of yesterday's prime rib-ask for it if not on the menu, absolutely delicious. She also suggested filet over ribeye. I prefer ribeye, but the filet, seasoned with just salt & pepper, was among top 5 steaks I've ever had-never even used my knife. Parmesan potato stack as a side completed it. From service to personal attention to food, 5 star all around.

    Had it not been for the recommendation of a friend with past experience here, we would never have discovered this "neighborhood gem." We are glad she did! The service and food were all excellent. Everyone in our party had prime rib cooked perfectly to order and it was among the best we had ever had. Service was prompt and courteous and we also loved the interior decor. Many menu selections, especially those featuring shrimp, are somewhat pricey for the quantity, but others including the prime rib are well worth it for quality of the food. This is definitely not a place to which our budget would permit frequent visits, but certainly a place to which I look forward to returning for special occasions.
