Hand Cut Burgers & Chophouse is changing the way people eat burgers, steaks and all cuts of meat one meal at a time. We dedicate that every piece of meat we serve has respect for the animal and the land the animal has been raised on. Not a fan of meat? Do not worry...we have plenty of vegetarian dishes available, including many delicious salads.

The dining experience at Hand Cut is also dedicated to an elevated level of service and quality. We offer a fast casual dining experience during business hours Monday–Friday. And by sundown, we become a full service chophouse with fine cut steaks, pork chops, other quality meats, and steak house sides. Between our craft beer program, mixology cocktails and an elevated selection of fine wines Hand Cut will impress even the most polished of cocktail & wine enthusiasts.

I went there with a group of five for a birthday and the overall experience was great! The food was delicious for the price and the atmosphere was fun. There was a DJ playing great music and the overall atmosphere was very fun. As a group of girls in our 20s, we would absolutely come back. It was very trendy and very close to the bars if you want to go out after.

The food is fine but the noise level is unacceptable. It get's progressively louder for no real reason. I've been twice and the sound levels seem to be getting worse. I can't recommend this place unless you want a loud place with average service.

We stopped in after a movie to grab a bite. We kept it simple with burgers, and since this was our first time here, I have to limit my opinions to what we had. Device was prompt and pleasant. The atmosphere is a little quirky and casual, and pleasant. The wine list may be a bit too,limited, and although there is a group of proprietor’s wide. The burgers were good, but to be candid, you can get as good a burger at many places including Zinburger. We liked it well enough to go back, perhaps for streaks or shops to see how they do. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

This was not one of our best experiences at any restaurant that we had eaten at in Phoenix or the Scottsdale area.

First off, it was Black Friday, and here this restaurant is right across the street from a crazy busy mall and they don’t have enough staff on hand.

We had a reservation so when we arrived a couple minutes early we were told that we would have to wait because they were running way behind because they didn’t have enough staff on hand to seat us. They did warn us that the kitchen was way backed up even though at the time we arrived it was not very crowded.

The best part of her meal with the fries that were season great and had fresh dill on them

Priscilla was our waitress and she did the best that she could do considering the lack of staff.
Short rib dip, Was by far our favorite,
crispy chicken sandwich was boring.
Salt and vinegar dill french fries rocks! Grass fed beef ranch burger with jalapeño was not spicy and had no jalapeño flavor to it at all!
Bulleit Mule was god, It’s hard to mess that up!

With so many choices a fantastic restaurants I WOULD NOT bother going back.

We found the food to be superb. Steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The Brussels sprouts were delicious, but the best ever was the Carmel desert that our waitress suggested. Wow!!! The staff were kind and the waitress was attentive and friendly even though she was very busy.

Friday evening reservation for 4. Decent crowd, but room at the bar and other open tables. Good Music and vibe.
Drinks were good
Dinner of 1 pork chop, 1 airline chicken ,wedge salad and short ribs ................................................................ 35 minutes later they acknowledged the issue and offer a free appetizer............20 min later, tepid, salty food is served. Waste of time
Don't come here for the food.
Should have just waited to eat at a different restaurant.

The starters offer the best chance of flavors - Skip the steak (wait its a chop house).. Yes skip it.. It's quality is similar to 5:AM steak and egg breakfast in Vegas.. (Although the chef did cook it properly, giving it it's best chance). The hand crafted mixed drinks are unique, beautiful and tasty. (not cheap, but certainly an impressive impression!) If we lived in Scottsdale we would only return for a sip from the bar... never for the food. The creative ideas of whom ever developed the menu are salivating, But what is delivered to the table is lacking. Highly recommend raising food prices and purchasing better quality food ingredients!

Went for a quick dinner on a Saturday night. Nice decor and a cool environment but pretty loud if you want to carry on a conversation across the table. Two of us has burgers, one had a chicken patty melt type sandwich and my wife had a Wedge salad with salmon. The burgers were good. On the smaller side but an appropriate portion with nice Brioche buns. No complaints from the diner who had the chicken sandwich. My wife's salad however was poorly presented. Instead of a wedge of Iceberg the small oval plate had two uncut stalks of Romaine with the rest of the ingredients deconstructed on the plate. The plate was so small there was no room to cut up the Romaine and the lower portion of Romaine stalks are tough and woody so you really don't eat them. Wife had to put one of the two stalks on my plate to cut the other and once she cleared that off her plate she took the second stalk and cut it up. Wife was not happy. Lastly we order two plates of "salt and vinegar" fries expecting the vinegar/salt taste you get with salt and vinegar potato chips but no. They were just a bit salty with nearly no vinegar zing.

Recommended by a local while we were visiting Scottsdale; food was a little pricey but excellent and service was fantastic. However, the noise level from the bar is EXTREMELY high; not able to carry on a conversation at times.
Open Table had restaurant open on Wednesdays for dinner; we got a call Tuesday from the manager that it was incorrect--she apologized and offered us free drinks and an appetizer to change to another day! Nice!

Family and I were looking for a place to celebrate son's birthday. Atmosphere at Hand Cut was great. Great music, tv's with the game, and felt surprisingly cozy. We ordered the artichoke dip base on the review, fantastic. Also ordered the fries and rings, both were very good. We all ordered sandwiches, the braised rib sandwich and the mushroom burger both deserve an honorable mention.

First let’s say the food was great. The service However was horrible and that’s being nice. If there was a zero star option I’d have picked it.. Waited 10 min for someone to come by and get a drink order.; opted to place food order too. Waited 45 min for our food. Plenty of staff working, not overly busy, just seemed to be lack of customer service. Spoke with manager and she was apologetic and polite. The prices were average for Scottsdale but the service would make me think twice about coming back. Ironically there was a table card that said they were having their 2 year anniversary next week. Doubt they will make it to year 3 based on what we experienced.

The food was fine. I had booked a reservation for a 60th Birthday. When we arrived, no one mentioned the Birthday and they split the party into 2 tables. Not much fun to try and celebrate when you can’t even sit together. I was very disappointed since I had booked this weeks in advance and no one ever said they couldn’t seat us together. Really spoiled the entire party.

Our reservation was at 6:15 and the DJ was already playing loud music therefore no opportunity for dinner conversation. Our waitress was relatively unattentive. Our drink orders never came so we asked, at which point the manager delivered them personally and comped them. The food was decent, but honestly the poor service and loud music (at 6:15 pm) outweighed and potential the food had to offer.

The only complaint would be the food. The appetizer was great but the food went terribly downhill from there. The short ribs were dry and tough, the halibut was very fishy tasting and my filet ordered rare came out well done. The risotto was tasteless. The truffle mashed potatoes were very good. Food overall too salty. Service was good. Will not return here for dinner.

9/10 Gift Card arrives, $25 to get us back in for dinner. I spent over $300 when I was in. $25 wasn’t even 10% of our bill nor would $25 cover dinner for even one person. There is either poor management or they don’t have the authority to really take of customers when there is a problem. Doubt I will return.
9/5. Kevin at Hand Cut contacted me to discuss the issues of our evening. As a gesture a gift card will be mailed out. I’ll try again next time I’m in AZ.

2 plates of food went back to the kitchen. I honestly would have sent mine back as well due to the saltiness. But after 2 plates went back. It was almost embarrassing to ask the server.

I sent an email to the restaurant. Have had zero response.

Make sure when you request a quiet spot you ask to not be seated directly by the bathroom. They are singles and there was a line of people by our table all night long.

I had to ask the server over several times for cocktails and to clear dishes.

At over $50 per person, 7 of us and a 20% gratuity, that I would not have left.

Go elsewhere.
