At the Twisted Lizard Tavern & Grille it's about being in a “twisted” state of mind, meaning enjoying great food and drink, in a hip atmosphere, surrounded by stunning views of the McDowell Mountains.

The Twisted Lizard, is a modern, relaxed restaurant and bar, nestled at the foot of the McDowell Mountains. We offer a relaxed environment with an extensive wine list that is approachable in every way from palette to price, and a unique and eclectic menu, sure to delight any palette. When we started the Twisted Lizard we imagined a place in North Scottsdale where our guests would be greeted by name and partner with us in adventures of great food, wine and libation, in a hip atmosphere.

At the Twisted Lizard Tavern and Grille we take care of our patrons on all fronts, catering to the sports fan, the casual neighborhood bar drinker, the student, the after work crowd and the live music aficionado. Located in North Scottsdale, with stunning views of the McdOwell Mountains, we offer a popular hangout for business gatherings and friends looking for a place to relax and unwind after work.

Our Happy Hour runs Monday through Friday from 4 pm to 7 pm, and with a load of inexpensive drinks and eats, guests should be sure to come hungry and thirsty: $3 domestic drafts and bottles, all premium beers, house wines and well drinks are $4. Great food includes: $5 Fish Tacos, $5 BBQ Beef Sliders, $5 Pulled Pork Quesadilla, $5 Hummus, $4 Cold Veggie Plate.

When the sun sets over the McDowells, we heat things up at the Twisted Lizard, transforming from a neighborhood sports bar into a spacious lounge.  While we spiced up our offerings and atmosphere, avid sports fans needn’t worry: The Twisted Lizard still features more than 10 HD televisions mounted in throughout the tavern, broadcasting the biggest games. If you have a special viewing request? Let the staff know and they’ll do their best to make sure your show is on.

Our passion is to deliver an extraordinary experience to each and every guest.

We love the energy you bring and the time we spend in your company.
