The hamburger was outstanding, but the fries were overcooked. The chicken breast had an awesome flavor and I would definitely order either one of these again. A great waiter who needs to be more engaging, but really affable.

We arrived early for our 6PM reservation to take advantage of the 3-6PM happy hour. We ordered a glass of wine each but at $9 per glass it didn't seem like much of a happy hour price! The appetizer however was delicious and good value at just $8. We then moved to the dining room where we received very good service from a young fellow who I think was fairly new there. I ordered the 1/2 rack of ribs with fries and my wife had the short ribs. The 1/2 rack of barbeque ribs was huge and the ribs were tender. However, I didn't think the barbeque sauce they were cooked in was all that interesting. The fries were some of the best I've had. My wife's short ribs were decent but not all that interesting. The carrots that accompanied the meals were hard and tasteless. Overall, we found the meal to be OK but not particularly memorable.

Had a very nice table on the side of dining room. The Mule’s were so tasty and the baby back ribs had a perfect, tangy sauce. The short ribs were tender and sweet. Great evening at one of my favorite places.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant and one of the best in Phoenix. Always a wonderful meal and every item is delicious. Pick anything you want from the menu; you'll love it. Drinks are great; service is always personable and attentive. A shout out this time to Grayson our waiter for a great dining experience.

Had a great lunch on the patio this week for my son's birthday. Food is excellent and the pricing is great. Very diverse menu and the presentation was superb. Thinking of planning a private party for the holidays or any special occasion, they have 2 banquet rooms which can hold small or larger groups. A definite gem of restaurant.

Great place to have a conversation with a friend. Service is much better than last time I was here. (It is good, not excellent...time, menu knowledge). They have several gluten free choices. Unfortunately they were out of corn tortilla, so I could not get the special and had to make another selection. The black beans were excellent and I liked the eggplant appetizer.

This was our first visit but will definitely not be our last. The hostess Kate is adorable and our waitress was fun and accommodating. We loved the food and the fact that we could hear each other talk. We will be back.

Nice place located on side of strip mall near the 51 and Bethany Home Rd
Smells good, nice ambiance, good service
Compares well to Houston's - menu is more extensive and food is a better value

PCG was our "go to" place when we lived in Phoenix. Returning after having moved away 11 years ago, we were not disappointed! So happy to see old favorites on the menu along with some newer choices. Sheldon is a gracious host. A great experience!

Friday night out after getting home from work. Newer to the neighborhood and we have seen the place and have wanted to check it out. It was awesome! The corn cakes are sooo good and comforting! I’ll have an order to myself next time I say, it’s that delish! The rose lane chicken was top notch and highly satisfying, I finished the broccoli first it was that good, I was eating veggie and tasting an awesome seasoned steak is how I’d describe it. Our server was superb and since we were first time visiting we got a free slice of the buttermilk pie, yummm. Needless to say we came home and shortly there after I PTFO and entered the food coma...we’ll be back.

Always a pleasure to connect here with my family when they come into town. Being a native to Arizona having a place that’s been around for years always brings back good memories. Food and Service always on spot!

Great restaurant week menu! 3 course meal for $33 and only an extra $5 to add a cocktail. Prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin was fantastic.

We went for restaurant week to try a new place. Overall, good. Suggestions, get rid of the diner type plastic menus and the green plastic straws in every water glass; they ruin the ambience. Try for a Hillstone’s type of esthetic.
Biggest suggestion, please use 100 percent olive oil, canola blends are very unhealthy.

Honestly, my friend and I could not believe how tasty the food was, as we went to Phoenix City Grille for our Sunday brunch yesterday! We live right down the street and oftentimes leave our neighborhood to try many other restaurants throughout the city, but Phoenix City Grille never disappoints!

I had Carne Asada Breakfast tacos and my friend had Chile Relleno and both were amazing! We will be staying in the neighborhood much more in the future! ;) It's just a longstanding outstanding restaurant!

The food and drinks were spectacular! The flank steak was perfectly cooked and the black garlic sauce it had was so flavorful. My husband enjoyed his shrimp dinner as well. Our server, Sonia was friendly and provided excellent service. Ambiance overall in the restaurant was nice and though the tables were full, it was not too loud. I highly recommend Phoenix City Grille.
