It is nice to know that some places are keeping spirit of the Old West alive in Scottsdale. Pinnacle Peak Patio is located in Troon North. It sits across from Pinnacle Peak Park and just around the corner from the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. It is still going strong after 56 years. The historic Steakhouse and Microbrewery remains a local favorite for residents and tourists alike. On April 20th, cowpokes of all ages came out to celebrate the inaugural Wild West Fest.
Pinnacle Peak Patio began in 1957 as a general store and a place for travelers to stop, rest and grab some supplies on their way to nearby lakes. What started as a weekend cookout to boost business soon turned into a full-blown restaurant and saloon. In 2006, the restaurant was in danger of being redeveloped as a luxury resort. Luckily, long-time owners were able to regain control of the 9-acre parcel early this year.
Today, Pinnacle Peak Patio offers casual dining for those craving some traditional Western barbecue and a selection of home-brewed beers. They have drawn a number of big-name visitors, from George W. Bush and John McCain to Paul Newman and Tom Cruise. Their strictly-enforced “No Necktie” policy has resulted in an impressive collection of cut neckties hanging from the rafters. At their recent Wild West Fest, crowds enjoyed live music, kids’ activities, a stunt show and food and drink specials.
