Are you scared of things that go bump in the night?

To get into the spirit of Halloween, we have compiled a list of reportedly haunted Valley restaurants.

We warn you now: Your fellow diners might just be from beyond the grave.

Lon’s at the Hermosa Inn (Paradise Valley)

In the 1930s, cowboy Lon Megargee constructed a ranch home in Paradise Valley. To help pay for the house’s upkeep, he rented out rooms to travelers.

In 1941, Megargee was forced to sell Casa Hermosa along with its furniture and most of his artwork.

Some believe he has never left his beautiful home. Doors closing, objects moving and even a cowboy in the mirror thought to be Megargee have been reported.

Nobuo at Teeter House (Downtown Phoenix)

Located in historical Heritage Square, this Phoenix residence was built in 1899.

Eliza Teeter lived in the house for 54 years, where she raised her kids. She later turned the home into a boarding house and ran it up until her death in the home in 1965.

The structure now houses one of the Valley’s best Japanese restaurants. Paranormal reports range from items mysteriously being moved in the kitchen and dining areas to place settings being changed overnight. Sightings of an elderly woman thought to be Teeter have also been reported.

Casey Moore’s Oyster House (Tempe)

This Irish bar was a home originally owned by William and Mary Moeur, who built it in 1910.

Throughout the years, Casey Moore’s has been a boardinghouse, rumored bordello and fraternity house.

There have been many sightings of a female entity on the second floor and reports of pictures mysteriously flying off the walls.

The Stockyards (Phoenix)

Edward Tovrea opened this former packing house in 1919. His son, Philip, continued to run most of the empire after his father’s death in 1932.

A simple 35-seat coffee counter opened in 1947 to serve the cattlemen who came to do business with Tovrea.

In 1953, a fire destroyed that building and, the following year, a larger two-story structure was built on the property which is now the present day restaurant and bar.

Lights turning on and off, moving chandeliers, mysterious voices and moving shadows have all been reported here. An apparition of a lady in a red dress has also been seen roaming the structure.

The Old Spaghetti Factory (Phoenix)

A stretch of land along Central Avenue was once occupied by a couple of private residences and then a furniture store before it became the Old Spaghetti Factory.

The activity at this restaurant has been known to be a bit more malicious, as screaming and crying have been reported. The ghosts may be those from a murder that allegedly happened in a house decades ago.

Workers and patrons both have witnessed the activity.

Hob Nobs (Phoenix)

The adorable cottage, once known as the Helen Anderson House, was originally built as a residence for Helen Anderson, the widow of insurance company organizer Carl H. Anderson.

Rumors have circled about ghostly activity. Last Halloween, Hob Nobs went so far to have paranormal investors visit and analyze the historic cottage.
