The restaurant is eclectic, the food is excellent! Enjoy the challenge of finding it in the back streets of Old Town Scottsdale! The decor is not what might be expected, given the restaurant's name, but it's unique and really worth seeing! Moreover, while the menu has a myriad of great diverse and classic choices, one of the best items are... More

I was simply walking and exploring. Then I turned the corner and looked to my right. Located diagonally across from the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts was this hip American bar and restaurant. I had no idea where I was going to have lunch last Thursday, yet as soon as I saw AZ 88 I was ready to be... More

Always good at AZ88. We normally sit at the bar or outside. Never have had anything bad there. Great food & martinis. Go in December to check out the Christmas tree which is made up of something different every year. This past December was light bulbs! After the holidays could be something new on the wall behind the bar. Plus... More

When you sit down at a bar for a drink, part of the responsibility of the bartender is to greet you and make you feel like you're welcome, not make you feel like you're bothering him and now he has to work, right!? Well, the bartenders at AZ 88 or at least this past Sat night Feb. 11th, 2017, were... More

We were on our way to the theatre, and stopped for a quick dinner. The host was kind enough to seat us outside at a perfect table. Service was quick and efficient. The Host noticed that our server was a bit overwhelmed and served our drinks. I ordered a simple BLT and it was anything but simple, it was outstanding.The... More

The first time I went with two friends for dinner on a busy Tuesday evening. The service and food were very good. So good that I went with two other friends two days later for lunch. The food was still very good, but the server seemed distracted, even though it wasn't very busy. Interesting menu offerings and decor, and particularly... More

AZ 88 is known for its fabulous chicken sandwich or its grilled chicken plate - both versions are cooked in butter. It's pretty hard not to get super tasting chicken (or anything else) when cooked in butter. It's very good food and you won't leave the table hungry - the portions are big. The service is very good - although... More

Hip atmosphere, outside dining. I had the burger, which was done perfectly and very tasty. Nice place to sit with friends - not rushed or frantic, yet very good service. On a park behind Old Town.

This truly used to be one of my favorite spots. I went back last week for the first time in a couple years and the place is surely not what it once was. I ordered the staple AZ88 chicken sandwich and it was as bland as it's ever been. Didn't even come out super hot and it wasn't that busy... More

We visited on a cold Saturday afternoon and attempted to sit outside. When it got too cold for our 7 month old grandson, we asked to move inside. The wait staff seemed a little put off with our request, but the did accommodate us. The inside is a little to eclectic for us. The exposed open wall above the bar... More
