We loved our trip to Culinary Droupout. The outdoor seating was pleasant, the server was great and the food was good. The pretzels and cheese fondue are worth the trip by themselves! My husband had the fried chicken and I had the salmon, both of which we enjoyed. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Scottsdale!

We were there on a night they had live music, which was great. Fun atmosphere - comfy seating. We had reservations and still had to wait about 15 minutes, but with how crowded they are, I guess that is to be expected. We were able to sit outside, which is what we wanted. Cocktails were delicious, and the food was... More

Love Culinary Dropout!!! High energy bar & restaurant - come as you are / anything goes - awesome food & drinks - coolest staff ever - and live music - what more can you ask for. Great for going out with friends - but we take kids there too.

We attended as a party of 4 and everything was great. The service was exceptional, drinks were great and original, and the food was wonderful across the table. Great dining experience at a very casual place.

What a pleasant surprise. Our hotel concierge recommended this spot to watch the NCAA championship game. Holy cow, this is my kind of "sports bar!" Awesome decor/atmosphere, incredibly comfortable chairs/couches and great food. Please come to Southern California!

We went to the restaurant on Monday night. They had several large TVs that allowed us to view the NCAAM National Championship Game. The food was good and the service was fair. It was not a super busy evening, but we still had empty water glasses most of the meal. We understand that on weekends the atmosphere changes with live... More
