We stopped by this institution for a quick drink. It was packed at 7pm. Nice crowd, over 40 kind of vibe. Service is first rate. Setting is fun old Scottsdale dive-bar. But, if you don't want to inhale 20 cigarettes avoid the patio bar.

Been in Scottsdale over 30 years and they have great Karaoke as well in their bar area. Large and roomy is a plus. All their food is great and their prices are reasonable. Pool tables in another...

Ernie's is a Sports Bar on Scottsdale Road in the Shea Scottsdale Shopping Center, no longer Ernie's Inn as far as we know. They have a great energetic crowd of people surrounding 33 HD TVs with daily food and drink specials including oysters on the half shell, great clam chowder, fish and chips, etc. Great place to let your hair...

Will not ever go again. Bar tender is a piece of trash. Double billed my card after kicking us out for not moving to the other side of the bar so his "friends" could sit down.

First a little about me - I am not a loud person, nor have I ever been disciplined, kicked out of or otherwise asked to leave any establishment. I would prefer a quiet bar where I can converse with my friends over a club any day. Now about my experience at Ernie's - I came to support a friend who... More

Our 1st visit to Ernie's was OK. But it is a bar 1st & foremost, full of people mostly drinking. We both had crab cakes (recommended by others) which were fine. Not great, not world class but fine. Our 2nd visit (it's pretty close to home) we tried a fried seafood basket they had as a special. The breading was... More

I only had a salad when I went there. My husband had the crab cakes and said they were pretty good. The main focus of us going was the karaoke as we were told by a few local residents, this was the place to go. Lots of talent got up and sang and I participated and felt like I fit... More

Part dive bar, part restaurant, part karaoke bar, this place is always fun. Crowd is always into the karaoke and the bartenders are always friendly. Ate here once and got the steamed crabs. Was scared at first, wasn't sure if I wanted to eat crabs at a karaoke bar in the middle of the desert, but they said it was... More

We've lived in Scottsdale for years and having never tried Ernies, we ventured a stop one day and boy were we surprised. The owners are a Maryland family and that shows in the delicous crab cakes. You can even get Maryland blue crabs on the weekend in season. We've been several times and they never disappoint. Reasonably priced too.

Thank Sheila P

Ernie's Bar and Restaurant has been family owned and operated since 1973. Our mission is to stay true to our Maryland roots with our menu featuring options from seafood and steaks to sandwiches and burgers. Our crab cakes are the best in the West and a must try! Ernie's is the best place around to get Maryland's freshest steamed crab, shrimp, clams and assorted swimmers. Our casual sports bar and eatery has the valley's best karaoke 7 nights a week where all tastes in music are welcome. We have a top of the line sound system and an extensive music library that creates the most enjoyable karaoke experience available. If singing is not your cup of tea you can dance the night away on our large dance floor equipped with a fantastic light show. Singing & dancing begins at 8 p.M. Every night.
