Ok, kind of average pub food , pretzels and beer cheese were good, chopped salad was NOT a chopped salad and had very little in it.

Overall, this was a wonderful experience. The cocktails, Green Goddess Caesar Salad and the King Crab Legs were memorable. I made a point to ask for an adequate amount of time before entrees arrived; but, even then, our entrees came out too soon. We were still grappling with our crab legs and sent the entrees back. They needed to be remade. When they came out, my Short Rib Stew was perfect, but my dates Filet, ordered rare, was closer to medium and was sent back again. Our server and the kitchen reacted quickly, but the timing of our meal was affected as we waited for her steak to be remade. The replacement came out promptly and was done perfectly. The service that we received was top-notch and the flavors of the food was very good. In this instance, a mistake in the kitchen will not keep us from coming back. We will be returning here soon.

They knew ahead of time it was my birthday, and the waitress even mentioned it. I had hoped to be offered a dessert to share with the other 3 at our table. On well......

I was disappointed this time.. I had a salad with grilled chickhen. The tomatoes were soft, mushy. I expect them to firm, especially at the Arrogant Butcher!!! I'll think twice before returning or recommending my friends.

This is my third time to the arrogant butcher. The first two were incredible this time was incredibly disappointing. Our entrees took at least 2 hours to get to us. During this time our server sat and chatted with every single other one of his tables completely ignoring us. When our food finally arrived it was delicious. But once again I had to wave our waiter down to come fill our drinks that had been empty for 30minutes as he sat with another table. When it came time to pay our server gave us a free desert and a discount but then took another 20 minutes sitting with another table to pick up our check. Over all food was incredible and will go again but stay away from Steve.

The apps were outstanding and so was our server. As a ribeye guy I was a little disappointed they didn’t have that to offer so I had to settle on a filet with a wine glaze on it. To me anything that is poured on a steak is just wrong. You really need to be able to taste the meat. Totally my fault though and I shouldn’t have ordered it. All in all my wife and I would definitely go back for sure. If I was told they now offer ribeye, we would be on our way immediately

Grabbed a beer and a burger before attending a game downtown. Excellent burger but I could have eaten two and two orders of fries. For the price I expected a bigger portion.

Food was ok. Overpriced and the chicken was cold on the salad. Waitress came to the table twice and it took forever to pay and leave.

Chose to have dinner here before the baseball game. So glad we did! The whole experience was outstanding from the moment we walked through the door. Warmly greeted immediately and our service was on point. The GF ordered the NY strip and I the prime rib. They were cooked perfectly as we requested. The ambiance and decor was perfect. We would definitely come back again.

The food is always great. I had the cheeseburger for the first time and it was delicious! They still have an abbreviated menu and I really miss the grilled chicken club sandwich I used to get quite often.

Bar was alittle slow. I loved the flavor and everything was cooked to perfection on the crispy chicken. Just felt like it needed some type of startch. I plowed through it in less than 6 mins. Otherwise very good

Great service, good food, but the value just isn’t there. This was my second experience at the Arrogant Butcher. The service is top notch for the food service industry. However, the name “Arrogant Butcher” is fitting because the food is overpriced by about 20% for the quality.

Out server was absolutely incredible! She had been there for 5 years and I forgot her name but short blond hair and beyond incredible with her tables. Was able to split a salad for starts and split our entree with no hassles/extra fees. Amazing food and cocktails. Great date night spot and also a great restaurant before event downtown!

We ordered shrimp for appetizer. They were good. My wife ordered the chicken it was good. I first ordered the prime rib,they were out, so I ordered the New York strip. The steak was terrible. It was tough. We told the waiter when he finally come back to our table. He didn’t come back to our table after the meal was served until he was ready to give our check. It was a terrible experience.

The AB was recommended by a friend where we live in Goodyear AZ. After a 28 minute drive we arrived downtown Phoenix at "City Scape". We made our reservation (on-time) met our two family members and were seated promptly. We ordered drinks, hers a pineapple margarita, mine a hazy Huss draft brew. We then received the fresh and yummy champagne vinaigrette dressing salads delivered via our server "Issac" who was awesome BTW. We split the very generous portion of the wonderful meatloaf dinner and topped it all off with sharing the cheesecake dessert. Great times.
