    I ordered prime rib. It seemed to have been grilled which as we al know changes it from prime rib to a regular steak. Had two bites, but not really likening it, and then found an hair on my plate. The manager was very kind about about and I definitely say he did try to fix it and took care of the bill. But once a hair is found I can’t eat. So thumbs up to the manager he was great and very kind. The cook should have come out to own up to the hair though I think.

    Consistently good. Some of the better fish and chips in the Phx area. Oysters were ok but the Jalapeño mignonette was fantastic. Turkey pastrami is quite good.

    The Arrogant ButcherResponded 1 day agoThanks for dining with us! Sorry to hear that your oysters weren't as great as everything else—but we're constantly rotating through different varieties, so we hope you'll try our raw bar again next time.

    Everything was solid and professional. I thought the ribs were too small and the side amount wasn’t more than 2oz. For the price it’s not worth it but I did like how everything tasted.

    Manager was extremely nice - our meal order was lost and when arrived was not as ordered. ALSO filet was subpar. WE would never order steak at this restaurant again however, will visit for the ambiance and happy hour cocktails..we prefer our filet to be "butter" soft and unfortunately, this quality of beef is not at the Arrogant Butcher.

    The Arrogant ButcherResponded on July 31, 2022Im sorry to read the steak wasn't the quality you were looking for Mike. I hope you give us another shot soon as we have some amazing entree's to choose from aside from beef. Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback.

    Went on a Tuesday at 215pm with wifey, kiddo, and myself. The restaurant had a good few people inside both at the bar and at tables. The service was fast, the dinning room itself was very nice as was the overall taste of the food. Our server and service was great. Not sure how they operate during “busy” hours but I would say it’s defiantly worth trying regardless.

    Expectation were left expecting more. Service was good. Drinks were good. Food in this case needed more. The burger had a thin patty. I did only order a single but family ordered the double which was thicker but still thin. Suggest staying away from the burger and ordering another entrée.

    I was supposed to meet a friend for lunch, but he had the wrong day! Oh well, his loss! I had a nice conversation with my server, who was able to immediately have my meal prepared to go. He had my check ready for me quickly too so I could head back to work. That said, my meatball appetizer was the perfect lunch size and so delish! The garlic bread that comes with it was darn near something I dream about. Yum!
