BBQ ribs and shrimp n grits were awesome. Portabella sandwich needs an overhaul. Need to choose different kind of bread. Ratio of bread to sandwich contents was about 3/4 bread and mushroom cap seemed small. Celebrating sons birthday and toffee Carmel brownie was excellent!

It was a beautiful evening and they didn’t have the curtain down on the patio. The traffic noise was loud. It certainly spoiled the ambience.
Our waitress was excellent and the food is
always top notch.

Next time we will set inside

I booked in open table and my reservation was to be outdoor seating.. instead we were inside crammed in a booth by the kitchen. It was to be an outdoor setting for our out of town guests who were looking forward to the patio!!!!! Service very poor ... my beer they forgot about finally brought after we had to flag the waitress down and they took off our bill... bologna deal!!! $4!!!! If they wanted us to return they would give us a gift card. Probably won’t be back anytime soon for sure!!!!

Celebrated my husband birthday with friends here. Great food and service. Even though we didn't tell anyone that it was his birthday, when the waiter found out he brought the table a wonderful brownie dessert. Very nice!

We have eaten here many times and the food and service is always very good. The food was great but the service not up to the standard we have experienced in the past. We waited about 10 minutes before a server came to our table and asked if we needed more time to look at the menu we said no that we had been waiting about 10 minutes. He told us we were wrong. The food came out quickly as always. The farmer's salad didn't seem to have any dressing on it and it took a while to flag him down to ask for some. We told him that we wanted two checks, but he only brought one. We didn't want to try to flag him down again so we just gave him 2 credit cards and had him split it. We will be back, but hope we don't have that server again.

We ate at many different places on our trip and researched ones with the best ratings. Grassroots was by far our favorite. The food was incredible, service was great and it is such a charming environment. Well done, we will be back next time we are in town!

We had a terrific server. Attentive and efficient. The only reason I rated it a little high on the noise side was because we were seated on the patio which is right by a busy street, with high traffic. We could have chosen to eat inside which would have been quieter, but preferred the outdoor setting. Not really an issue since the traffic is what it is. My Mahi-mahi sandwich was outstanding.

Wow, what a find! The Club House Salad was so fresh and tasty. Good combo of red onions, bacon, cherry tomatoes, croutons and garlic dressing. Great way to kick off the meal. Then came our beef brisket plate...the meat was so tender and tasty, especially with the sweet and savory side of baked beans...so good! We also had the blacken red fish which was cooked to perfection along with the remoulade sauce and dirty orzo (like a cajun rice). If you are in town, I'd definitely come here for dinner. Will be back!

Some of the best Southern food I’ve had! Ahi tuna poke was absolutely delicious, the ribs and chicken so tender, and the Jalapeño cheddar grits were amazing! Can’t wait to be back in Scottsdale next year, will definitely stop in at Grassroots Kitchen and Tap for dinner!

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of Grassroots. The blackened shrimp over jalapeño cheesy grits were the perfect level of spice. The Carolina ribs were perfectly cooked and the slaw was the perfect accompaniment. There were a number of other interesting items on the menu so we will return to try them out.

Do not miss the Sea Smoke and Orzo salad! It echos the famous Stetson Salad originated by Bernie Kazak at Cowboy Ciao and now at Citizen Public House. Only better! Lots of delicious smoked salmon pieces in a delicious perfectly dressed veggie and pasta mix. Perfect!

This is our 3rd time to Grass Roots in the last 5 weeks. I have to say the ribs were not as good as the last two times where they fell off the bone. My wife’s salmon was excellent and love the bread even for $3. Service was very good.

Met a group of friends in town for spring training. This is a go-to place for one who is working near Salt River Fields. I have been here before and the food is always excellent. Even though we were here on a Friday night during high season, no one tried to rush us out the door - we were here more than 4.5 hours! Always enjoy coming here.
