This year’s summer events and activities might not be as abundant as previous years, but that doesn’t mean this summer can’t be a memorable one! Complete with pools, spas, fire pits, pool tables, BBQ grills, and even volleyball courts, our vacation rentals are an amazing way to still have an unforgettable family trip even while being safe and socially distant. The only thing our rentals do not provide are unforgettably delicious meals that the whole family will love — that’s why we made this guide of popular Scottsdale restaurants that are raved about by both tourists and locals alike! Trust us, after a day lounging at the pool or an intense family volleyball tournament, your friends and family will thank you for coming prepared with a list of the best restaurants Scottsdale has to offer.
Scottsdale’s 800+ restaurants can seem overwhelming, but one of the highlights that cannot be missed is Old Town Tortilla Factory. This distinctly Southwestern restaurant is built from an 85-year old adobe home and features a firewater patio and an unmissable tequila bar featuring an award-winning margarita. Worried about dining outside during the hot summer months? The patio is misted regularly to keep the dining area at a refreshingly cool temperature!
Another picturesque spot, Chart House offers beautiful and unique views of both Camelback Lake and Camelback Mountain. The atmosphere is both elegant yet comfortable and the fresh seafood, decadent desserts, and perfectly cooked steak will make you dream about your meal for summers to come.
Romantic French restaurant Zinc Bistro is a great experience for date night. From its garden courtyard to its pet-friendly outdoor patio, it is a gorgeous spot for a special night out. In addition to its dinner menu that includes premium seafood, steak frites, and charcuterie, they also offer a Sunday brunch that features Dungeness crab benedict, buttermilk battered crispy chicken sandwiches, and crème brulee French toast. It’s definitely a spot you won’t want to skip!
Another gorgeous spot with stunning views is Tommy Bahamas located at Kierland Commons. Their patio and outdoor dining rooms offer picturesque sunset views and their menu offers delicious island flavors including blackened mahi mahi tacos, coconut crusted crab cakes, and kona coffee crusted ribeye. They are also offering a to-go menu that includes many of their tropical cocktails.
If you’d prefer to trade the ambiance of these famous Scottsdale eateries for the comfort of your resort (we don’t blame you!), Scottsdale has delicious takeout options as well! Mexican-joint-with-a-twist Blanco Tacos is offering their delicious tacos to-go along with beer, wine, and their perfect margaritas! They are even offering a family meal pack that includes a variety of tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans, plus sides! Sounds like the perfect meal to eat poolside if you ask me.
Another great takeout option, Culinary Dropout has perfected Contemporary American cuisine that both the adults and kids will love. Some of their menu’s favorites include their 36-hour pork ribs, fried chicken, and beer-battered fish and chips. They also have a family pack that includes fried chicken, ribs, mac and cheese, plus sides. You can even add a few cocktails to go!
Crave-worthy Italian spot North Italia features handmade pizza and fresh pasta, along with small plates including white truffle garlic bread and Italian meatballs. Their signature sandwiches including their crispy pesto chicken and Italian grinder are also available for takeout (and make a great pool-day lunch)!
Lastly, another un-skippable Italian restaurant that offers great take-out is Pomo’s. In addition to their popular menu stables such as handcrafted pasta and authentic Italian pizzas, their seasonal summer menu includes a burrata, prosciutto, and peach pizza and a pureed cold soup of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and avocados.
Whether in Scottsdale for the weekend or planning a longer summer getaway, these meals from some of Scottsdale’s best restaurants are sure to be one of the highlights of your trip! Not to mention, the rentals at Scottsdale Stays are the perfect place to enjoy these meals — whether soaking up the sun by the pool or curled up on the couch with the AC blasting!Tags: arizona, restaurants, scottsdale
