When I feel like blowing a bit more cash than usual on a happy hour I like to indulge myself at Dominick’s Steakhouse in the Scottsdale Quarter. It’s dark af, just how I like it, and has an old school, classy, gangstery feel to it.
All of the happy hour dishes are $10 and are of the highest quality. My favorites are the NY Strip and garlic truffle fries, the filet mignon and scallops and the steak sandwich. I figure you get at least 2 1/2 oz’s of filet mignon if not 3. Considering the 8oz filet on the menu is $47 this seems to be a good deal as it also comes with some scallops.
When I first ordered the martini for $10 I was a bit skeptical at the value but it really is like two good pours instead of one. They shake that fucker up in a top of the line Vollrath shaker and leave it on the side to keep the vodka on chill. (After holding a Vollrath shaker in person you will understand what quality is, my lovely lady bought me one as a gift and I love it every time I make myself a clear.) If you are a martini fan like I am a Vollrath shaker is a MUST. Click here to buy one on Amazon and thank me laters!
The service is quite hit and miss so be prepared to be treated either like a king or like a piece of shit. I didn’t like the attitude on the arrogant manager after we had a tiny dispute over prices/description on the menu. When our waitress spoke to him about our question he laughed and acted like we were idiots. Fuck him. Anyhow, the tasty af food, sweet martini and luxurious gangster ambiance keeps me coming back.
I give Dominick’s happy hour a 4 1/2 stars if you have a bit o’ coin to waste.
