At Culinary Dropout, raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue. At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food and drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.

    Hamburger and fries were cold. I never send food back, but the fries were terrible. My server did send out a fresh batch of fries, so kudos to her. We normally have great service, but those fries should have never been plated.

    The burger we ordered was like meat with cardboard. The fried chicken was too well done. The skirt steak was not up to par like it was before. Super disappointed. The service was decent although no one came to refill our water until we asked for it.

    We keep coming back with our special guests and it's always great. The staff is thoughtful, not pushy in any way. They always have great attitudes and are helpful. Food is wonderful across the board and the place has a great vibe as well. Once again last night's server was just terrific and very easily accommodated a late running guest. Thanks again to the entire staff. Ralph

    The drinks were watered down and not worth the cost. The service was very slow, though our waiter was friendly. The meatloaf was boring and barely warm with cold green beans and mashed potatoes. Also, the “crispy bread” appetizer was basically burnt toast. Finally, the metal green chairs are very uncomfortable. We won’t be back.

    This is the second time in the past couple months the food wasn’t good. The cheese fondue was cold, fish-n-chips were very greasy and mostly batter plus fries were soggy. Cool atmosphere but food needs improvement.

    Our wait person was clearly new. We ordered onion rings for an appetizer...had to ask for them after our entrees were delivered to the table. My girlfriend's salad was in a very dirty bowl and had to go back. The manager came to our table and apologized but did not recompense us in any way. This is my third time at Culinary Dropout. I think I'll take a break for a while.

    Four ladies out for lunch. Our waiter was really great. We had a few “unusual” and he handled them all. Since the restaurant was not full, we took our time talking and laughing. Kevin never made us feel like we had to leave. I have been several times and never had any complaints.

    Service was very poor this time! We have been to Culinary Dropout many times and this was by far the worst experience. Music was way too loud and not very good. Service was slow. The server was friendly but was more interested in talking with her friends than serving us. Food was good as it always is.

    The kids loved the Detroit style pizza. My husband loved the fried chicken. I was not expecting grilled asparagus to be fridge level cold. My wine was delicious…loved the wine glass.

    Vibrant scene. Food is 7/10 at most with a relatively uninspiring menu that you forgive because of the great location and environment. 7/10 is a bit generous though. The menu screams, nothing special”, or “it’ll mostly do”. Best advice is to have a pre-game meal of a lobster roll across the street, then consider this place for drinks and light appetizers at most.

    Food was very average. We saw a write up in one of the Scottsdale magazines listing the M.A.C. Burger as one of the top ten in the area. It wasn’t bad, but not even close to a top 10 burger in my opinion. Service was great.

    We were there for a special occasion, my birthday. During our visit, I never even heard one “happy birthday “. I’m not sure whether Open Table transmit this information at all or if the restaurant ignored it. Either way, it left me with a bad feeling.

    The server seemed very preoccupied. Our drinks from the bar came out when our food did. With out any explanation or apology. Having the drinks come first certainly adds to the experience.

    EDIN - waiter; server; extra mile goer! I'm a retired executive of a Fortune 500 company that focuses on "GUEST SERVICE". When I experience a team member that is incredible, goes the "extra mile", and MORE THAN SATISFIES their guest, I strongly feel the need to recognize that person. My wife and I constantly frequent The Culinary Dropout at the quarter experiencing from the start with an incredible warm welcome from Mia to outstanding service by Edin. Thank you for extremely enjoyable dining experiences.

    Hostess service was wonderfully friendly. Seating area was too warm, nothing too special about our visit here. Food was good but not so good that it stood out as better than other places in the area.
