Step through the copper entry doors and feel the warm authentic atmosphere of this classic American Steakhouse. Once adjacent to the largest feedlot in the world, the restaurant is a living history museum that documents Arizona's cattle industry with historical photos and a Western Art collection. Established in 1947, The Stockyards has been serving the best hand-cut aged steaks and prime rib for 70 years. The menu also features wild game, seafood, poultry, pork, and a wide variety of appetizers, salads and desserts. Be sure to visit the 1889 Saloon where you will find a solid mahogany hand carved bar, crystal chandeliers, and walls adorned with original murals that were painted in the 50's. Step back in time and relax while you enjoy an Arizona landmark. Banquet space and private dining rooms are available, and The Stockyards is always an excellent choice for groups.
Reservations are only available for the basement bar. Please reference the Basement Bar Menu. Above BARCOA, check out the Cantina, a casual back-alley mezcal and tequila bar that serves affordable classic cantina cocktails, and the cheery patio, where rotating taco trucks and street food vendors often pop up to serve guests (check website for schedule).
BARCOA can be tricky to find. We're located on the southeast corner of 1st Avenue & Roosevelt, in the historic red brick building. Don't worry, you're not lost. It's just poor directional signage that the City refuses to fix.

- ELErikaLvipLos Angeles •5 reviews4.0Dined 5 days agoA cool space with lots of different seating options. The service was great and we enjoyed our drinks, as well as the spaghetti squash flautas off the happy hour menu. However, the main courses didn't quite meet our expectations. We had two of the pasta dishes, and it felt like they were trying to do too much, with too many flavors fighting each other. Overall, it was a perfectly fine experience, but I wouldn't go out of my way for the food here.More infoOcotillo$$$$• Contemporary American• Downtown Phoenix•4.5
