The team at LGO Hospitality is excited to announce that its popular Buck &Rider restaurant is coming to North Scottsdale at the southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Mayo Boulevard in the Shops at Chauncey Ranch in the space formerly occupied by gordon biersch.

Known for flying in seafood fresh daily (a first for Arizona, according to the restaurant), Buck &Rider has earned high praise since opening its doors in 2015. The restaurant maintains close relationships with fishermen and farmers with no middlemen since everything is flown in directly from the East, West, and Gulf Coasts. Seasonality, weather conditions and fishermen skill drive the menu on a daily basis. All fish is cut in house and fish and oysters are rotated throughout the day. The restaurant’s steak program will feature LGO Reserve beef, which is the first in Arizona to be awarded a private label USDA certification.

In addition to serving lunch and dinner, Buck &Rider will have its legendary happy hour and brunch with live music. Some of the things guests can expect from happy hour include a full signature cocktail list and a premium well drink program. Food includes Voodoo Fried Rice, Baja Shrimp Ceviche, Steak Tartar, Ahi Tuna Crispy Rice, Hand-Rolled Sushi and Smoked Trout Dip.

The North Scottsdale location will reflect the Buck &Rider style that continually attracts a young-minded discerning crowd that understands authenticity. It will feature a full patio with outdoor bar with architecture by prominent local architect Cathy Hayes; the building inspiration and direction will be driven by the North Scottsdale location.

“Opening an authentic Buck &Rider location in Scottsdale gives us the ability to share our vitality, vim and vigor with the local community. Our goal has always been to bring the freshest seafood possible to Phoenix,” says Emily Collins of LGO Hospitality. “We’re eager and enthusiastic about sharing our unique and genuine vision with even more Arizonans. We utilize the freshest and most immaculate ingredients and apply exactness in cooking so that interference with the natural elements of the food is minimal and truly celebrate the ingredients.”

The opening of the new location is about a year out and the plan is to have a celebratory grand opening. For more information on Buck &Rider, visit and follow Buck &Rider on Instagram and Facebook @buckandrider.
