The place was packed, which is a good thing, and loud. The booths really didn’t accommodate four full grown men.

Our server was knowledgeable and helped inform us about the menu so we could enjoy the perfect meal for us. We felt comfortable in the space and enjoyed not being surrounded by tv screens. The drinks and food were delicious. Prime rib was perfectly cooked and the crispy chicken was superb. Definitely will return.

We took our family of 4 to The Arrogant Butcher before going to a show at Talking Stick Resort Arena. We all loved the soft pretzel fondue and enjoyed the beet & kale salad, French dip, and chicken strip kids meals. The service was great and we all look forward to our next visit. Great location, convenient parking garage at Cityscape.

We thoroughly enjoyed the butchers board and the short rib chili were excellent. We enjoyed our afternoon before Cirque.

Food was very good, but obviously priced for being across from Talking Stick.

Very average service, everyone was stressed, slow, and yet restaurant was not busy.

We will most likely eat somewhere else for next event.

The food was fair. The slow cooked roast beef was chewy, as opposed to the "cut it with a fork" description given us by the waiter. The pepper steak was chewy as well. The service was fair, actually poor at the bar. The bartender took his time to acknowledge us, served a group that arrived after us first. No smiles, hellos, how are you doings. It appeared he was not happy to be there.

The room needs a heavy dose of acoustic treatment. Could barely hear the music or my dining companion over the din.

My parents were in town and we celebrated my mom’s birthday. This was my second time at AB and just as phenomenal as the first time. We’ll be back!

The food was amazing! We had Prime Rib and King Crab and it was absolutely incredible. Our waiter did an excellent job and the service was just perfect. We had a good meeting with a business client there and were able to enjoy drinks and a perfect meal. This is a place that when we go back, we'll eat there twice this time!
Definitely on our Favorites list now.

We were really excited for our evening at The Arrogant Butcher. We were seated pretty close to our reservation time. Service was friendly and fast. It's really about the food. It was way off in contrast to everything else about the experience. We ordered the French Onion soup to start and what a disappointment. Cold, flavorless thin broth with a hunk of bread floating in it. No hot bubbly cheese covering the top and some sad onions laying on the bottom of the bowl. No taste of sherry or the richness you expect in this dish. The jambalaya was worse, it had no flavor at all. There were some peppers in it that made it hot, but no spiciness. It was advertised as having shrimp, chicken and sausage although it was very scarce. Lots of overcooked rice and they threw in what I imagine was crab. Very overcooked and mushy. Just an awful dish. My husband ordered a very unexciting burger that came with cold stale fries. The presentation of the meals was blah. The place was loaded with people so apparently they get away with unremarkable food.

We had 6:15pm reservations but weren’t seated until 6:45pm. That made it hard to enjoy the experience because now we were in a time crunch to get to our show. Our server was great and made sure we got out on time but we skipped appetizers and dessert because of the time crunch. The salmon was better than the filet mignon.

Drinks and appetizers before a concert. Busy place!! Make reservations. We found two seats at the bar that were perfect. Service is right on with lots of people working on a busy Saturday night. Only have 5 beers on tap (craft) but backed up with good selection of bottles. Will definitely be back.

Way overpriced for the quality of the food - genuinely seems like a step above Chili’s but with steakhouse pricing. They also got my order wrong, but were very polite in fixing it. Disappointing overall.

Food was great. Service painfully, painfully slow. Did not expect dinner to be a three hour ordeal at this type of casual restaurant. Wait staff was super friendly but it took a very long time to get drinks, food or even a piece silverware. They did not have their act to together in terms of service despite friendliness. Seems they did not have enough wait staff on duty or the kitchen was backed up. Perhaps just a bad night, but I will avoid in the future despite how much I liked the food.

I’ve been eating at AB since it opened. The last 5 visits have progressively been worse.

The food was cold and the front hostess looked like she could care less about her job.

It was my favorite for years. However, it’s now off my list.

Went there for nice dinner out. We were seated in between two large loud groups in the cafeteria like area. When asked about different seating we were told that is what was available. Group of 4 were seated within 5 min after us in the quiet dining area. Wait for refreshment refills took forever and then had to wait even longer to pay the bill. I was told the jambalaya was spicy. Not so. It was actually quite boring. Definitely not worth the price.
