Ten Things To Know Before You Go:
- The Compound Grill is located in the northern part of town, near the border of Phoenix and Scottsdale.
- Parking is free.
- Shows at The Compound Grill are general admission. Some are standing only. For others, the restaurant tables and chairs will be in place. If you intend to have dinner, I'd call first to make sure the event isn't a standing room show.
- Reservations are taken for dinner. On show nights, seating is first-come, first served with your reservation.
- There is a bar on the opposite end of the restaurant from the stage. Guests are welcome to sit at the bar and enjoy the show, but show tickets must be purchased or cover charge must be paid. If there's a game on TV, you can watch that at the same time from the bar!
- The stage is raised, so all seats in the house are good seats. Enjoy seating side-by-side? I think that the best seats might be the bench seats along the right wall or the rails on side.
- There is a VIP area to the left of the stage.
- The menu at The Compound Grill consists mostly of light Southwestern fare -- appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches. Prices are reasonable. There are several full dinner dishes offered ranging in price from $15 to $20. The Compound Grill prides itself on sourcing products from local producers.
- Tickets for musical performances start at $5. Actually, sometimes there is no charge! For bigger acts you might see ticket prices at $20 or more. Some shows have a minimum food/drink order required in addition to the ticket price.
- Blues, jazz, rock, reggae, folk -- their calendar is full diverse musical entertainment.
My take on the Compound Grill? I found it to be a casual, comfortable place to enjoy mostly local bands at very reasonable prices. I would recommend it for a first date (or any casual date) or an evening out with friends. While I was there enjoying a band playing bluesy Americana-style music, some patrons were ordering appetizers and drinks and other were enjoying full meals during the show. The food looked appetizing and plentiful. I didn't eat anything during this visit, so I can't comment on the food. If you have eaten at Compound Grill, you can submit comments about the food here.
