Totally by co-inky-dink, we were there two nights in a row with different groups of friends. The place is lovely, dark and welcoming. Hubby had the beef shoulder with runny egg on top. He loved it. I had the fish and chips (duck fat fries). Really good. The signature sips are beyond compare. Second night he had asiago crusted halibut... More

My boss recommended this place as a mid-priced restaurant to meet with an out-of-town guest. My husband and I enjoyed almost every aspect of the meal, service and decor. Kelly provided excellent service. The food was very good, with one minor bump that was quickly addressed by Kelly and the manager. The country-style pate was on a meat and cheese... More

We went here at the enthusiastic recommendation of friends, they had visited 3 times while in Scottsdale last month. Not sure what the excitement was, I'll have to ask when i get home. There was no greeter when we arrived so we proceeded to seat ourselves. He arrived shortly after we sat and seemed annoyed that we had seated ourselves.... More

Great spot to come enjoy good food and atmosphere! Very friendly staff and great service along with some interesting menu selections! For appetizer try the Green Chili Pork stew! Tender and full of flavor with just the right amount of spice, and plenty to share! The ribeye Tacos are also cooked to perfection, with a great balance of flavors! The... More

This is a large restaurant, but it doesn't feel too crowded or noisy or impersonal. We had a great meal, excellent service and attention to our time constraint since we were headed to a concert at the MIM. The menu has a good variety, of course, lots of pork, but there are other options. I would definitely return here again.

I was in town for a seminar and was staying at a local hotel. It was the evening before the seminar started, and I wanted something more than "hotel food". An app on my phone noted that this place was 1/4 mile away, so I walked there. I did not want to wind up at a noisy sports bar kind... More

We got there for happy hour after a long day of travel. Our waiter was helpful for food choices and everything came out quickly. The food was good for bar food and we love the deviled eggs. It was also nice that our waiter was so helpful when we asked about our golf plans and gave us some recommendations for... More

It's funny that the name Salty Sow kept me away from this restaurant for so long. I was pleasantly surprised by the upscale decor and excellent service. Our waiter gave us several good suggestions (yes it appears he has tasted everything on the menu). The fish and chips with duck fat fries were the best I have ever had. The... More

I came here on a business trip and was looking for somewhere native to the area to eat. I was not disappointed! The prime rib was amazingly delicious and the beer options are great.
