We came to the Ventura Grill to see a friend's daughters perform and felt very welcomed on our first visit. The bar is open to the outside making it cool and comfortable. The waiter likes to chat so we had to wait for our bill.

Stopped her last week for lunch, just minutes from the D-backs spring training stadium and across the Pima freeway/101 from the Talking Stick casino. Wasn't too busy, nice selection of food, and it was good. It is a sports bar with numerous TV'S, welcoming decor, and live entertainment 5 nights a week, so I can imagine that they are much... More

The food is pretty good (not great) and the drink prices are reasonable. Lots of TV's conveniently placed to watch sports. It was almost empty the night I was there, probably because there weren't any major sporting events that night. Service was friendly. They have a completely separate room for smoking, or you can smoke on the outdoor patio. Smoking... More

As this place is close to our office, we went there often. Food is good, staff is terrible- rude, talk to each other instead of helping a waiting customer. Finally when I was waiting for my pick up order, I was amazed to be right next to the manager and waitress as they complained about the owner and how he... More

Met with friends before leaving town at VG. Very good food. We had appetizers and wine. The menu consisted of salads, hot and cold sandwiches, pizza (which was fabulous)...I wouldn't call it bar food because it was not greasy or stale tasting. Everything was well prepared with fresh, real ingredients. I tasted what everyone ordered and loved everything.

Stopped here quite by accident for lunch. I had the cheeseburger and my husband had the parmesan burger. Both were excellent. The service was fine and the prices reasonable. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.

Unhelpful and rude staff lead me to believe that management is absent or clueless. Miserable bar service. So many places with great service here in Scottsdale. Skip this place.

Heard sports talk radio promote this place for months. Ate there recently for lunch and the food was terrible. Tasteless lettuce wraps and under done chicken wings. The worst part was we didn't even order the wings. Ordered a Reuben and the server brought wings. They don't sound remotely alike. Tried to eat them since we were pressed for time.... More
