Got there and seated at 12:00, server came by about 12:15, ordered drinks And an appetizer. drinks finally showed about 12:25, appetizer maybe 12:30, food was ordered with drinks, had to ask server around 1:00 if they could hurry with the food so we could get to our 1:30 show. Food was good, service is just terrible.

This was the first visit for my wife and she thoroughly enjoyed everything. Our waiter was great (I appreciated when he told us the prime rib was going to take a bit longer and did we want to change our order), and the food was very tasty (the prime rib was excellent). All in all a very nice night out

Used to really like this place. I got the stuffed chicken and my wife got the meatloaf and they were ok. Not terrible, not great. Pretty bland. The seafood gumbo I had was pretty good though

We arrived late for our reservation due to traffic but they were able to seat us on the patio.
It was very windy but we will try the restaurant again

Before every game we stop in at The Arrogant Butcher. It has a limited menu but every single item on the menu is absolutely delicious. My picky teen kids love to eat here. The service is always pleasant. We have sat outside on the patio at night and it was very relaxing. We have sat on the large booths and also side tables near the windows. Any spot inside has a great feel. My husband and I enjoy the delicious cocktails and appetizers. We love coming here and highly recommend this place to anyone.

Birthday celebration was ruined due to poor/slow service. Repeatedly asked for drink refills. We asked for additional chips with our artichoke dip - that took a long time. One entree was cold - replacement order took forever. We didn't even have time to wait for the birthday cake! We expected it to be noisy - it always is. Our previous visit one month ago was awesome! We didn't have our drinks halfway empty before the waitress brought us a new drink. I would have given that waitress/visit 5 stars all around. I will return again just because I know it can be good but another first-time customer might not return a second time. Appetizers are awesome! Thank you.

We were in Phoenix for Spring Training baseball & had planned the tour at Chase Firld. We picked Arrogant Butcher since it was within walking distance of the ballpark & parking in the area is a pain.
Lunch was great & I can’t say enough good things about the service. We will def be back when in the area.

Too bad our service got messed up - it was busy and no one k ew who had our table so we didn’t get serve until we yelled at a server. Food great - noise level really bad - not much ambiance.

We were seated for over 15 minutes, no server came to table. We finally stopped someone who said he would be take a drink and appetizer order, he returned with two empty glasses and informed us that table server was another person and order would be along in a minute. After an additional 10 minutes we asked same person about our drinks, he got wine for us and our appetizer was served. When we were ready to order dinner we had to ask yet another server if he would find our assigned server, instead he took our dinner order which was served promptly. Server assigned to table finally showed up to take dessert and coffee order. We sere seated at 5 and finally got check at 6:30. Ordering was an adventure and took most of the time, meal was very good.

Salads, Prime Rib, Salmon, meat loaf were all excellent. However, the crab stuffed chicken was dry! Like 2 pieces of cardboard put together. Would not recommend this dish. Overall, a good place to eat before a concert.

I had been looking forward to checking out The Arrogant Butcher. Service was great! The Old Fashion Old Fashion was perfect. The oysters were awesome. We ordered the prime rib. Although it was cooked correctly and was tasty, the mashed potatoes and gravy were awful. We couldn't decide if they were instant potatoes and bottled gravy?

We were stuck in a back room. It was extremely cold, and we were facing a TV screen. we asked the staff to warm things up. That worked for a few minutes, but then it was very cold again. The service was OK. The food took a very long time. The restaurant went through a menu change recently. The old menu was much better.

Came highly recommended, but ultimately it disappointed. The food was average at best, and it was too loud to be able to hear conversation at the table. I won’t go back.

It was game night so expect it to be crowded, but acoustics inside are horrible. Had to shout at the table. Put up something to dampen the noise.

Food, oh very run of the mill. Jumbalay was boring and not very spicy. Sea scallops we didn't even finish.

We had hoped for a much better experience.
