Love Salty Sow! It's a smallish menu which insures that everything they make is fresh and great.

It's one of the go to places I head to when company comes to town and I get there plenty when it's just my wife and me

New Years Eve dinner. Had our usual pork belly tacos and brussel sprouts for apps and split the surf n turf. Delicious! As I tell all my friends when I recommend this place - if I were on Death Row I would want my final meal from Salty Sow!!!

Salty Sow has great, interesting food that you won't find elsewhere; friendly, attentive service; a nice patio that's comfortable in the summer and has heaters for the winter; eclectic, fun décor; and is in a very convenient location. It's great for brunch, lunch, dinner, late night, and easy accommodates a big group or a nice table for 2. Don't miss the truffled deviled eggs or the blackened ribeye tacos!

We went to celebrate wife's birthday and had an excellent dining experience. The prime rib and pork belly entrees were great, including excellent mashed potatoes and grits sides. The brussels sprouts were uniquely different and wonderful. We tried a Petey and a Smokey Sow martini from their specialty drinks and enjoyed both. They offer excellent food at reasonable prices.

The service was really poor at every point of contact and hard to say which was the worst as they all competed for that distinction: hosts, bartender, then the server. Way too numerous issues to list nor do I care to itemize them on this site. Food was mediocre and very overseasoned even for a place with salty in the name. It doesn't appear as if one person who works there actually enjoys being there.

The Salty Sow quickly became one of our top choices for delicious food and drinks, with fantastic servers and staff. We look for excuses to go for a meal, and there was no hesitation to pick it as the place to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. They did not disappoint. Just great in every way.

We have enjoyed dinner at the Salty Sow in Austin and wanted to try the one here in Phoenix. It was every bit as good in terms of food quality and service. We enjoyed the visit, will return, and have already referred friends to dine there. It was a nice relaxing evening with friends, great food, really a perfect level of service (Defined as prompt and timely without being visited constantly) by a friendly and knowledgeable member of the staff. The shared dishes are awesome, the main courses were also very good. We didnt get to try the Prime Rib so go early if you want to try it!
