Great place with very interesting food and beer. Not too loud, and a nice place to have a casual dinner. I would return, and will when we are in Scottsdale.

We had a wonderful farewell lunch with my parents here before the flew back to the UK. The food was, as always, delicious as were the cocktails.
Service was good but we asked four a couple more minutes with the menu and were left for quite a while and eventually asked for our server. Other than that small thing it was great.

Amazing food!!! I was so happy we stumbled upon this place when we were in Arizona. I got the brisket plate and was blown away. Hands down the best BBQ I have ever eaten. And the baked beans?! I don’t know what is in them but I am not a baked beans fan but these were out of this world amazing. We also had the Prosciutto wrapped asparagus and those were amazingly delicious as well. If you have kids your in luck because they have a great kids menu with generous portions and all my kids said it was the best meal of the trip! Make a reservation and go!!!! You won’t be sorry!

We all loved the food and can't wait to go back. The Scottish salmon and chop salad was perfectly cooked and the brisket sandwich and shrimp Po' Boy wonderful as well. The service was good too.

The food was very good and everyone was very friendly. Our waiter knew the menu well and accommodated our dietary restrictions by double checking with the kitchen when he was unsure. Would highly recommend the miso salmon!

One of my favorites. I have been stuck on their ribs, which are awesome, and tried the short ribs - fabulous. Always fresh, friendly people.

We have enjoyed Grassroots for some time. This trip, we had to wait an exceptionally long time to be approached by our server. Unfortunately, we were with friends for whom this was a first time. They were not happy about the wait and were finally very vocal about it. We have always enjoyed our meals, including the exceptional french fries; don't miss those. It's an indulgence but falls in the category of worth it. I'm a fan of the Shrimp Po Boy, and it didn't disappoint again this visit. One of our other guests thoroughly enjoyed hers, and she can be critical. Her husband was not as enthusiastic about the Mahi sandwich; it did look dry to me, so I think it was over cooked. We'll be back; not sure they will.

The Salad was exceptional. The Moscow Mule was refreshing. The Grits were divine...the steak was very poor and over-cooked. The ribs were dry and the short ribs were OK. The service was great. The noise level was LOUD

We dine at Grassroots a couple of times each month and I am noticing a disconcerting trend downward. Both the food and, to a lesser extent, the service seem to be steadily deteriorating. In our party of 6, 3 of the entrees were overcooked and 1 was cold. And while the drink pours there have never been great they, too, seem to be shrinking while the price goes steadily up. We'll still be back there but we will probably think twice before we do.

Ususally very good. Think because it was January 1 at lunch food not as good. The coleslaw which is usually delicious was ‘tired’ and didn’t seem freshly made..too much dressing. & the fries of my companion were overdone & seasoned too much.

Great service from everyone. Kept our waters full and check on us an appropriate amount of times. Everyone was friendly and kind and the food was awesome. Seriously, I got the Ahi tuna and it was delicious. Thanks! Oh, Sydney was our waitress. She was fantastic!

Again and again the food is great, the service very friendly and the atmosphere lively. Had an outstanding ahi tuna salad this time with perfectly seared tuna over delicious mix of greens and avocado. I’m in Scottsdale about 4 times a year and make sure I don’t miss going to Grassroots Kitchen. Our server was extremely nice and helpful and the whole place runs really well.
