About The Stockyards Restaurant & 1889 Saloon

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.

We had a small table for 4, but the wait staff kept it clear and tended to us with little disruption to our conversation. Excellent staff.

We enjoy eating in the saloon on the upper deck as it is unique and comfortable.
There is a reason this restaurant has been flourishing for 70+ years; highest quality food served by a knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff at a fair market price.
Always greeted by management personnel upon entering the restaurant by the hostess station.

The service was excellent. We had the calf fries as an appetizer and they were very good. The drinks were well mixed and our steaks were done perfectly. The prime rib was perfection. We ordered two different potatoes: the Parmesan stack and the whiskey mashed sweet potatoes - both excellent. The NY Strip steak came with a delicious steak butter. Because it was a birthday in our group, we got a strawberry shortcake on the house that was also delicious, even as full as we were! The western decor and ambience was very nice, and all the patrons while we were there seemed quite happy!

This was an amazing place. The food was only surpassed by the exquisite service! Bob Hale was not only informative, but very attentive but not overbearing. His suggestions were on point. If Bob worked at a Burger King I would go just for that reason... this is no Burger King. The food was perfect! 5 stars from top to bottom! Thank you Bob for a fantastic evening. I will be coming back!!!

Went there to celebrate my parents 55th wedding anniversary. Had a great meal. Great service and good history. Was worth the drive from Gilbert for sure.
Reasonable prices for top end steak. All four steaks were served perfectly cooked. Not one complaint.

 (San Diego)·Dined on December 31, 2017

Ordered 3 steaks medium rare. Son’s steak needed to be sent back to kitchen THREE TIMES. Each time he cut it only to discover it was too rare. Final time returned it was in 4 sections and charred on the outside. VERY, VERY disappointing. The compensation was to cover 1 desert and 3 coffees. This was supposed to be a celebratory dinner for his homecoming. Steaks is what they are supposed to be best at. They screwed this up and didn’t make good by us. WE WONT BE BACK AND WE’LL spread the word about the POOR experience.

I had very high expectations for our evening! I read countless reviews and was confident the experience would be memorable. Unfortunately, I was disappointed on several fronts. The food, all around, was lukewarm and seemed undercooked. The serving plates were even cool to the touch.

Our reservation was early in the evening, and I gladly offer the benefit of the doubt; however, a top scale dining establishment such as this, with a long standing tradition in the city, should produce a better “first time” experience.

I will select other “tried and true” alternatives in the Valley for our next meal.

The inside was beautiful decorated for Christmas with the fireplace, great ambiance. Service was spectacular and really enjoyed his knowledge of the history in the decor & photos throughout the restaurant. Prime rib was perfect. Four of us went for my moms birthday. They brought her a complimentary dessert we shared, barely had room for. Looking forward to a return visit. Thank you!

We enjoyed the veggies and dip that our waiter brought and the muffins and biscuits with honey butter were amazing. My husband had a NY strip that he enjoyed and I had a 5oz fillet that was good but i should have ordered it med rare unstead of medium. My bad. The salad was especially good as were the sweet potatoes.

My wife and I celebrated many occasions there. Our experience Monday night was horrible. What was suppose to be walleye, had bones & scales (walleye does not have scales) it was a different kind of fish. My wife had a ribeye, that was so tough, that she left most of it. Very disappointing!

Food and ambiance were excellent. The ONLY thing that would be better: we understand the restaurant did not open until later, so it would have been nice if the lounge/bar area was open early for us to enjoy an adult beverage before we were seated.
