Vacationing in the area and place was recommended to us. We felt it was a great choice.
We eat here often, and the service is always great. The menu is not large, but they do everything well. Patio seating is really nice. The beverage list is varied with wines and spirits. Always a good "go to" restaurant.
This place is always excellent. Friendly staff and local neighborhood feel.
Food very good.
The best French fries - ever👍Skinny and crispy and not too greasy. I wish they could wrap them in a napkin so they do not cool off so quickly. The salmon salad was one of the best things I have ever eaten .🎉Portions are quite large.
The restaurant is in need of a refresh. A coat of white paint would really improve the ambience
We visited Grassroots Kitchen for the first time during AZ Restaurant Week. Their special menu offerings were fantastic - started with pork belly and ahi tuna, followed by baby back ribs and shrimp & grits, then had key lime pie and a brownie for dessert. We also added the burrata appetizer and a bottle of wine. Everything was delicious and very fresh tasting. Portions were huge, we came home with enough for another dinner. The hostess was especially friendly and helpful.
Restaurant week is such a great way to discover new places. We'll absolutely return again.
The whole experience was so fantastic, from start to finish! Service was amazing, food was spectacular, ambiance was superb. Everything was so wonderful I’m definitely coming back again and again! Love that there’s tons of parking! Love the location! Super easy to get to!
Service was great (Rebecca was outstanding), food was great. Will definitely be back.
Grassroots never disappoints! I have eaten here many times and the service and food are always wonderful. The space is bright and open and the patio (when the weather permits) is lovely. Highly recommend this place for everyday dining, business lunches or a special occasion.
The service and the food were fantastic as always.
Great server and yummy food. My daughter enjoyed the Restaurant Week special and enjoyed every morsel including the decadent chocolate dessert. I had the chopped salad- also excellent. Oh, and consider starting with fries- extra crispy.
9-23-2021 our meal was so amazing staff is on point. We have eaten here quite a few times and are NEVER disappointed.
Great food, good service and a lively atmosphere
Always good, fresh ingredients, good service
Excecptional service and food preparation. Restaurant Week so I dared to order items I otherwise would never have tried. Glad I did!
It’s a typical neighborhood bar and grill. The menu is broad and inviting.
Highly recommend : Ribs,Rotisserie Chicken, most salads and the best grits.
We were celebrating a birthday
We came for Restaurant Week and everything was outstanding! The short ribs were melt-in-your-mouth and we had a great time.
Grassroots is very consistent we have never had a bad meal here and never had bad service. Brought a friend of mine there she had never gone before and now you have earned another customer. The food is amazing the only thing I wish is that they had brewed iced tea that is infused leaves like Desert Blossom from Infusion Tea. Local. it is carried in Lamp Pizzeria and Black Mountain Cafe to name a few.
ALWAYS a good visit! Can’t go wrong if you like fresh, healthy food!
Food was really good but server was a bit gruff. They really get you in out fast!
Definitely worth the drive. Awesome food & service! Would recommend to friends and family. Lots of food choices for all types of eaters. Great dinner for friends birthday.
Loved the food. Service was great. Busy place (which meant the food was good) but service still outstanding. Would highly recommend eating here
Our first visit to grassroots was great. We didn’t have much expectation, other than seeing the restaurant week menu. The atmosphere was a bit eclectic, but we had a nice booth. Because we went so early, 4 PM on a Saturday, it was pretty empty, so the noise level was low. The staff and service were professional and swift. We really enjoyed the dishes, The appetizers and entrées were quite generous.
My family and I always have an incredible time at Grassroots. The food is the best I’ve had in Arizona. Perfect for birthdays, and anniversaries. Never disappoints.
We go here often but have learned to share reviews only once we’ve had a few visits. THIS RESTAURANT IS CONSISTENTLY AWESOME!
1) the menu is wonderful: there is literally something for everyone
2) the food is prepared to perfection: whether it’s ribs or chicken or fish, it’s all equally delicious. And boy, do they know how to prepare fish!
3) Substitutions? YES WITH A SMILE. We are extremely picky (mr end mrs sauce on the side) and they take every request in their stride.
4) every person on their wait staff is extremely professional, friendly and courteous
5) shout out to one person who we think has some sort of managerial position, Katherine, she is absolutely the best!
This was our second time dining here and the food and service was fantastic once again!
The only downside was my guest ended up with a long hair in her food. They did quickly prepare another plate and credited the bill.
It's unfortunate that there are no Vegan options.
I would of given the food a five but our bread crust was so hard you couldn’t bite into it and barely cut it with a knife. The bread itself was delicious.
Our salad was
One of the best I have every had anywhere hands down. “Smoked Salmon with Orzo” highly recommend it. We will definitely go back!
Billy our server is fantastic! He remembered my colleague and I and what we ordered almost 2 months ago - and they were special orders. I love Grassroots, the food is always fresh, hot or cold whatever its' supposed to be and presented well.
Best salad I've every had! It was a Farmer's chopped with roasted chicken. My partner's miso salmon with asparagus was cooked to perfection. Martini's were delicious and the decaf coffee for desert was excellent. Had to hunt down a server for dessert coffees. We will definitely be back!
Food choices were interesting and varied, and we both enjoyed our meals very much. We ordered a side of fresh bread, I had the Seared blackened tuna salad and my husband had the BBQ pork sandwich. Now that I think about it, I recall he enjoyed his sandwich but wished the BBQ sauce had been spicier. My salad was excellent with multiple types of greens, a tangy dressing, tuna nicely seared, edamame and the best part - the crunchy Asian peas. We were very happy that they had outdoor seating, shady and with misters. Unfortunately the outdoor seating is on a very busy road, hence the noise. Our server was very attentive and rapidly refilled our iced teas and sodas.
Always have a good experience at Grassroots. Nice menu and I have never had a bad meal. I'll go back for restaurant week.
Relaxed atmosphere and wonderful food combined with outstanding service...definitely a restaurant we will frequent with Friends and family!
Always a great experience..it’s like your favorite neighborhood hangout
This is my favorite burger in Scottsdale. Seasoned perfectly and lean meat like I like.
