Steakhouse
Arizona's Original Steakhouse.

Step through the copper entry doors and feel the warm authentic atmosphere of this classic American Steakhouse. Once adjacent to the largest feedlot in the world, the restaurant is a living history museum that documents Arizona's cattle industry with historical photos and a Western Art collection. Established in 1947, The Stockyards has been serving the best hand-cut aged steaks and prime rib for 70 years. The menu also features wild game, seafood, poultry, pork, and a wide variety of appetizers, salads and desserts. Be sure to visit the 1889 Saloon where you will find a solid mahogany hand carved bar, crystal chandeliers, and walls adorned with original murals that were painted in the 50's. Step back in time and relax while you enjoy an Arizona landmark. Banquet space and private dining rooms are available, and The Stockyards is always an excellent choice for groups.

Usual experience from The Stockyards. Perfectly cooked steak which means a lot. We did receive more attention from the young lady refilling our water glasses than our waiter. Another table that was seated after us and ordered after us, got our appetizer order. The waiter said, looks like that table got your appetizer, I’ll make sure the next one comes out to your table. That sounds fine but it rushed the salads and main courses after.

The Stockyards are highly rated and recommended place to friends and family for a great steakhouse experience in Phoenix. I also think their scotch portfolio is top notch.

My husband and I ate here for our wedding anniversary, our waiter was fantastic, friendly, and had amazing recommendations - especially for wine! The food was perfect (literally not one complaint about this great place). We’re all the way from Alabama and would revisit in a heartbeat!!!

The restaurant must rest on its laurels because it certainly was not to draw in new customers during this restaurant week! The pricey $55 did not include a glass of house wine though the portions were quite adequate for my prime beef medium rare. The pleasantries of the hostess and servers were minimal. Sadly, I don’t believe this event will draw others to return.

It was a conflicting experience tonight. Kayla and Kathy took great care of us at the bar, and they were very busy. Alice is one of the best servers in the valley. Remarkable!

The front desk staff, not so good. As they did the last time we dined at the restaurant, they tried to seat us at the least desirable table in the restaurant. It is in the doorway to the back dining room off of the bar. They did, with much reluctance and a lot of evil looks, seat us at a better table.

We enjoy dining at the Stockyard's a lot, but not sure we will be back as frequently in light of the rude front desk team.

Definitely a hidden gem! From the minute you walk in the door you can feel the history of this beautiful restaurant. The amazing photos and history walk down to the beautiful bar should not be missed. From the hostesses to servers to busing staff this place is fabulous. We were a table of 4 and 3 of the 4 did the restaurant week menu which was a great deal. They begin with a chilled veggie boat and homemade corn muffins with a yummy butter. Shrimp cocktail was perfect and delicious. The steaks, prime rib and lobster were some of the best we've had in the valley. Also their parmesan potatoes and really good. Dessert did not disappoint we tried 3 of them ~ creme brulee, chocolate mousse and the sour cream blueberry cheesecake and we all loved all 3! We will definitely be back! Don't let the location keep you away ~ it's a bit of a drive but well worth it!

Presentation and taste was not to the point of appreciation since I did pay $50 for a steak. This was my first time to a fancier restaurant and I just expected it to blow my mind. I would much rather have Texas Roadhouse than have a steak here again

This place has a very different menu with many hard to get meals. Fish from Great Lakes and Oceans, Wild Elk, and Bison. The wait staff we had was outstanding. Wine list is complete. All and all great but a bit pricey.

I had the 16oz rib eye rare. If it was prime, it tasted and cut more like choice. More fat and connective tissue than eatable meat. Husband had the special of roast Buffalo. Should of had his favorite…elk medallions. Server was fantastic

21st anniversary we was seated right by the kitchen with a extremely loud party of at least 10 and too put the cherry on top. I asked for my steak to be cooked medium rare and came very alive bleeding all over my plate it was horrible. The waiter says wow and apologized takes my live animal back to return with a burnt dried out bison ribeye. It was so disappointing, but to be honest my wife liked her NY 12oz. Still went to In-N-Out for a bugger afterwards. Happy 21st Anniversary thanks stockyard..

What a great find in the Tempe area!! I was headed to the airport and wanted steak for an early dinner. Found Stockyards in a Google search. My party of 3 was seated immediately in a comfortable booth. The service and food were excellent. The restaurant was clean and felt 'homey'. I loved the history and photographs telling the story of Stockyards. When I'm in the area again, I will definitely return and recommend to family.

This is one of my favorite places to for steak when in ScottsdaleI. It was was my daughters Birthday & they always treat us like Queen’s when we come there. My sister & I shared the the prime rib for 2 & it was totally awesome. Cooked perfectly & the flavor was amazing. The whipped potatoes are one of my favorites. The service is always so good & friendly. A true AZ gem🌄🌵😎.

This is my third time dining out at the Stockyard and the quality of service and food are just impeccable. It's the right tone for a special dinner to a semi-informal gathering at the saloon. I highly recommend it.

Hubby business trip and I tagged along to work from the hotel. Our last night in AZ decided to pick a restaurant STOCKYARDS I saw on YELP. It was perfect! The waitress DAWN was perfect with recommendations and she was personable energetic fun and made our first visit and night out special. The food was on point with our steak for hubby and lobster for me with complete meals soup or salads and sides… omg everything was DELICIOUS 😋!!! Then by her recommendation we continued our evening at the bar with her BFF bartender KAYLA! She closed our evening with the perfect drinks😍!! Can’t wait to come back🥰

Ok. We wanted a really great steak in a unique environment. SCORE! The location is filled with history and decor feels welcoming !

The food was amazing. From the calf fingers (Yum -don’t over think it), to the salad, soup and leading up to the porterhouse, all was just delicious.

Finally, in time’s like we have now I can NOT over compliment the service. Wow. Wow. Spot on. Attentive, caring, professional. Front desk, bartender, bussers, and wait staff made us feel welcome and special.

Thanks for a great night!
