– The Grayhawk Golf Club – North Scottsdale Dining –
It had been a few years, but a couple of weeks back I went to have lunch at the Grayhawk Golf Club on a gorgeous afternoon. The restaurant at Grayhawk is called the Quill Creek Cafe and is located in the clubhouse. They have ample seating indoors, but the best place to be to take advantage of Scottsdale’s incredible weather is the patio overlooking the course.
We were lucky enough to get one of the remaining tables and the views of the water and greens were great. Plus, even though it was quite busy, our server took great care of us and our food was delivered quickly.
The lunch menu has a large offering of appetizers, sandwiches, wraps, tacos and salads. If you are looking for a more substantial lunch they also offer a good amount of entrees, pastas, steaks and seafood.
We started our lunch with the Soft Pretzel Bread and added a melted cheddar dip. Four good size pieces of pretzel bread were served and the dip was decadent and tasty.
From there, we each ordered salads. One was the Filet Mignon Chop Salad, which has more or less the ingredients of a Cobb salad with filet mignon. We asked to substitute the steak with chicken and were served a well-prepared sliced chicken breast instead. The other salad was the Grayhawk Salad, which is an Thai-inspired salad with chicken, noodles, peanut sauce, carrots, cilantro and more. It too was fresh and tasty.
Although it had been too long since my previous visit, I sincerely enjoyed our lunch at Grayhawk and will make an effort to get there more often, especially on sunny days.
