7 reasons why Scorpion Bay Grill is special

Looking for the coolest lunch spot in town? It’s on the lake at Scorpion Bay on Lake Pleasant Regional Park in Peoria. Guests can drive their ski boat, kayak or jet ski up to the dock at Scorpion Bay Grill and order a variety of fresh and delicious appetizers, flatbreads, salads, burgers and beverages from their watercraft.

So what makes the grill different? Here are seven ways Scorpion Bay Grill sets itself apart in Arizona’s culinary scene.

1. Elevated food and cocktails:

This isn’t your typical lake food. While Scorpion Bay Grill does offer burgers and fries, the quality and variety surpass typical lake food, making it more reminiscent of a high-end country club. The grill’s general manager and head chef bring their culinary expertise to the menu to surprise and delight guests with every savory bite.

2. On-the-lake dining:

Scorpion Bay Grill is actually floating on the lake, and its large patio and glass walls ensure that you are as close to the lake as possible while staying dry. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, but even the indoor seating provides a breathtaking view of the marina and lake with glass garage-style doors that roll up to bring the outdoor lake breeze in.

3. 360-degree views:

The expansive patio at the grill provides 360-degree views of the lake, mountains and marina, creating a sense of calm that transports diners to another world.

4. Proximity to downtown Phoenix and Peoria:

Less than an hour’s drive from downtown Phoenix and 30 minutes from downtown Peoria, the grill’s proximity allows for unforgettable business lunches and dinners as well as celebrations, date nights and a way to impress out-of-town guests.

5. Private parties, weddings, team building and celebrations:

Scorpion Bay Grill’s experienced culinary team can accommodate special events on their charter boats, patio or inside the restaurant. This means an unforgettable wedding, reception, bachelor party or family reunion are possible at the lake. We’ve also become a popular choice for businesses by creating a memorable team-building or corporate retreat on the lake for a day.

6. Dog friendly:

Pets are family at the lake and the grill has a designated patio area that is dog friendly. However, pet owners are reminded to be mindful of other guests and marina patrons, cleaning up after their dogs and keeping them on a leash at all times.

7. Many ways to play:

Scorpion Bay also is a great place for individuals and families to relax this spring and summer. Guests can rent a ski boat, pontoon, kayak, or water toys like tubes and wakeboards for your family and out-of-town guests to enjoy.

Scorpion Bay Grill is open for lunch and lunch and dinner on weekends, but hours are seasonal, so be sure to check the website for hours before driving over. Our well-maintained wet and dry slips provide boaters convenient access to the lake when they’re ready to play as well as peace of mind when they’re away.

It’s always a great day at Scorpion Bay!

Scorpion Bay is Arizona’s premier floating playground, offering everything from daily pontoon and ski boat rentals to slips for harboring your yacht (or dinghy).
