Not nearly as good since getting new owners. Food is sub par & the worst Bloody Mary I have ever had. Will stop in on occasion just for a beer.

This place is very small in area but the bartender/waiter was extremely friendly and fun. The food was top notch. Menu was limited but all the items had a unique flare. Everything recommended was very good. My husband had the Cuban (with a K) sandwich which was delicious. I had the south western Cobb with candied jalapeños. Our friends had... More

We went to the Grill on a Sunday afternoon. It seemed like there were a few locals. I ordered a small Caesar salad and it was the perfect size. My husband had one of the burgers and said it was also very good. The sweet potato fries were so delicious! I recommend this for people looking for a smaller intimate... More

We stopped in for lunch after reading Yelp reviews and were very glad we did! The Cuban was amazing! The smoked bbq pork adds some amazing flavor. The breads are super fresh. Big portions, great price! Friendly service, if we lived in the area we would become regulars!!

Great surprise! Followed a recommendation and went to this little place with the girls and had a terrific lunch! Scott the bartender/waiter handled the whole place with ease and had a great personality.

Great Bar, it's is like a small neighborhood bar that friends gather at. Very friendly people and the staff was great as well. We will make it or next stop when in Scottsdale. We did not have any of the food but told by all it is great!

6 tables, 9 bar stools and fantastic bartender! Very small place, high energy at the time we were there because all tables and some stools were filled with people conversing. Bartender( mike) made me a drink that was really close to a mikes hard lemonade as they don't sell the actual cooler there. Food was great, quick and you certainly... More

Where the umpires eat and drink! Nice small bar and pub, in old Scottsdale The owner Rocky waited on us, runs the bar with a cook in the kitchen, great lunch, beer very cold. Umpire's hats above the bar. Would be fun to visit when the Umpire's are there. A must stop if you are a spring training fan.

Old Town Scottsdale -- charming, and quaint little bar -- claerly a hangout for baseball fans during Cactus League spring training and at night for those that want a predinner or post dinner drink. We did not have the food -- looked like good bar food. Across from The Mission. Chris the bartender and Beth the floor general could not... More
